Friday was my Birthday - No trades.

Hi, KevinDog!

I didn't trade on Friday, because it was my national holiday. I posted that on my FB page, last Friday. See my profile.

When I do trade, I will post my TsT dashboard, Monday thru Friday, generally after 7nish (EST).

Thanks for asking!

Quantismo. Great post! Thanks!

First I want to wish you best Martha... on trying to pass your combine!

I have never tried it myself due to all the people I hear pass it only to get another test they must pass then I never hear from them again. I don't like ambiguous challenges...

I personally think your odds of success increase greatly with the ability to add in more contracts using (position sizing). I can sim trade the CL every day and make 5-20 k using 5-15 contracts. But when I have tried it with real money its like some one is sticking there hand inside my stomach and sqeezing my intestines. And with that kind of pressure its a loosing battle.
Its a lot harder with position sizing just using 1-2 contracts you have to have more perfect entries and exits and that takes a lot extra skill but not as hard to transition mentally to real money because a lot less is at stake. I personally trade Micro Forex and that is very easy to use position size adjusting in and not risk a lot if your having a bad day reading the market(great for beginner traders too).
I hope when you finally pass it you can somehow get over the real money pressure syndrome that keeps getting me with large size.


Good Luck Quantismo

Trading can be so scary, at time.

That's why it's imperative that we share our thoughts, fears, insecurities, apprehensions in the open. This vulnerability is what keeps us accountable to ourselves. My goal is to make you feel more confident and more inspired to keep on going. So many times, we feel that it's just too hard to get through one more trading day. But now that you've met me....I hope to give you what my Guru has gifted me.

I anoint you with a full-dose of encouragement. I want it for you soooo much that it makes you want to bolt out of your deep slumber, keep learning....keep trading...keep improving – in spite of the belly ache. My guru gave me that paradigm shift. I want you to walk away from reading this thread and say, “Wow! Cheery-Boga is sexy-confident, fabulous, internally-grounded and impassioned about her trading life AND now, I AM the SAME way, too.”

I want you to spend time with me and the entire time that you're with me, I want you to be inspired by my strength and courage in facing every day and every struggle with a positive, mental attitude. Everything I do is to empower you. You. Youuuuu.

You need to be nuanced about your thinking and don't let your brain bully you. My path is the one you'll need to take, if you're doing BIG things. Be a creator!

A few words about the combine with TsT:

Challenge yourself!

Call Conor Meagan, and give him your credit card for the deposit. Every futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite member gets a discount to boot. His office number is: +1-312-212-0534. Tell him that “Cheery-Boga” referred you and that you want to do the exact, same custom combine as me. Remember, it's their equity partner's money that you'll eventually be trading, and NOT TsT money. @TopstepTrader is just a scouting and educational firm.

Since we are sure-footed in our trading methodology, we DO NOT have any issues with subsequent combines imposed upon us. Wouldn't YOU want the same, strict provisions in place for random strangers trading YOUR retirement funds? The LTP is a stepping stone to all our glory as traders! Your attitude for the LTP needs to be, “Bring it ON”.

Let's start a movement, together!

SrgTroy,

Nonsense! There is always a front-row seat for everyone who reads my threads.

Release that scarcity mentality in life and in your trading.

Thanks!

Did I miss something @Big Mike she is now a vendor with an open journal?

I came to ask how today went, and just noticed her new status.

Took Monday off - Traded Tuesday

Even though it looks like I made a nice profit ($3,670), it was just too hard! Seriously, I was reenacting a scene from the movie, Shawshank Redemption. It felt like I was scalping, myself, out of the hole.

My goal is to reduce the number of trades that I take. Sometimes, though, I feel as though I'm trading my PnL. Does anyone else ever get that feeling?

Tomorrow is crude inventory day. After I locked 20-30 ticks of profits, the news did push the market further in my direction. Let's see what tomorrow brings me.

Here is my TsT dashboard:

Vendor - User Title

Tturner,

Since the plebeians have spoken and have wrongly accused me of spamming, I think I've been reported as a "vendor"

Let the record show that I'm in favor of absolutely everyone who is promoting either a trading system or coaching services, should PUBLICLY display their respective combine results.
More so as a testament of their system's validity! If a vendor or trading coach can't or won't show you their PnL, then insist that they challenge the combine and show you their @TopstepTrader combine results! If they won't or can't do it, don't buy their products or services. Period. Anyone can sound good or have a slick website, but Actionable Results are what matter.

It's no secret that I've been a cheerleader for one particular trading methodology, so my status has been changed to reflect that motive. I'm happy to represent - PA as it relates to S & D Zones on Multiple time frames - for ever and ever. Since I'm still a newbie, futures trader that has never, ever executed a LIVE trade on any exchange, I find the user-title amusing. I've already asked Big Mike to include my URL next to my new title, since I'm officially a "vendor".

Problem is under futures.io (formerly BMT)'s policies Vendors are not allowed to have a journal. @PandaWarrior closed his when he was considering consulting/mentoring work. I just find it odd that as a 'vendor' your journal is still open.

Also, your posting of your 'affiliate link' on everything is why you are seen as a vendor. Not because of other's comments.

Double Jeopardy


Thanks for the clarification, but I removed my affiliate links as duly noted by everyone or I risked getting my membership revoked for a second time and I definitely didn't want that to happen.

So, now, I'm addled.

PandaWarrior, a market wizard, who is seeking to do consulting work. I recently became an elite member, in order to redeem the generous discount for my combine. There is a huge difference.

I trade using what I've learned from my Guru and I've shared the results, here - good or bad.

Big Mike, if it's easier for you to delete this entire thread, so be it. I don't want to be accused of breaking the TOS as that would be cited as "double jeopardy".
