One more for the road....

This one might run and run but I took it off at yesterday's low and today's 50% level.

And the last one of the day....or I should say last sequence....there were a couple of scratches in the chop while I tried to get cute and get in ahead of any potential break out long....and a premature short.....for -13 I think....

Then the real one....get in and hold....again, smaller size....I've felt less than in the zone the second half of the trading day....so no need to get greedy and perhaps lose big if I'm not seeing things well.

have a great day everyone....its been a fun day.

Not a good trading day today.

To start with, I had to inventory numbers to deal with....NG and then CL thirty minutes after that. In NG, the price action as it did last week, set up a few minutes prior to the news. I had my sell stop order in about 10 minutes prior to the announcement. When the time came, the sell stop triggered at around 6 ticks favorable slippage....but funny thing is, the price went down so fast, NT couldn't get the ATM target limit orders in fast enough before price had already gone ten ticks past where they were supposed to go. You know how fast NT gets the bracket OCO orders in. NG flashed 70 ticks in the blink of an eye!. My target was 60 ticks and by the time the action slowed enough to process it, my trail stop had 50 ticks locked in. I just closed the trade because I could see the limit order resting there and the price bar 10 ticks further out....crazy....

On to CL, should have walked at that point....but CL news coming in 30 minutes....the NG trade took less than 5 seconds so had 29 minutes and 55 seconds to set up the CL one.

Didn't matter since I just couldn't see how the price structure was developing. I was long all morning, just chose silly places to get in.

So trying to get long several times and stopping out each time, I gave up. I had given up all 60 ticks of the NG profit and a little bit more.....

After slipping back into global sim mode, I noticed how simple the chart was and how even a baby could have traded it!

In retrospect, I realize I tried to be to cute, trying to hard to finesse it instead of just giving it room to breathe as they say. I was a little giddy from the NG trade and I think that contributed to a bit of carelessness on the CL stuff.

Regardless, the damn thing ran all the way to any possible target you may have picked out....a five dollar day...haven't seen that since the arab spring days.....and I saw a 20 dollar day back then....

Here's hoping tomorrow gives me a chance at even half of today's range....

No chart, NT is shut down and its getting late....

Cheers.

Yesterday was a fat tail day for almost everything. None of the platforms have been trustable since past two days - not OEC trader, not T4 and not NT.

Nothing against two site sponsors, but I've had zero problems with Sierra and IQFeed and IB.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Thanks for letting know that not all platforms were affected.

I had received this from the broker:


Quoting 
Experiencing Platform/Technology Issues?

We are sending you as a result of the fact that we have seen the S5 and other trading platforms fail to keep up with market volatility during fast markets. We are pushing our clearing firms to get to the bottom of these issues even though we know full well that technology failures occur across all industries; especially under heavy load like we have been seeing lately. We are pushing those responsible for this as hard as we can and are providing detailed reports of what we see and what you have reported to us. We are seeing issues on multiple platforms including S5 Trader, Ninja/CQG, CTS and others including data feed providers.

But I would still continue to support all three of them just because now that they know there is a issue they will not be leaving any stone unturned to fix the issue!

Had the same issue in the morning as I have been pointedr out in my journal. I am really considering to do something about it, the only thing I dont know what to do. My indicator set is on Ninja. So the question is that. Is that a datafeed issue, and the execution orders is in safe? If it is a datafeed issue only, than it is manageable to have an alternative connection. Question is that, if you have 2 connection in ninja, and one of them is lagging, how is ninja handling the problem?
For example, you are using AMP/CQG to execute order, and u are using IQfeed to get realtime data. Than if the CQG feed is lagging, than you will recieve the online data from IQFEED?

Anyhow... if someone has experience in this question, or can point out a forum to this, than dont hesitate.
@PandaWarrior : sorry for the offtopic!

Just to clarify, i did not have issues with NT, just that the price flash happened so fast on NG that NT could not get the target limit order in fast enough and price had already pulled back from that zone by the time the limit order was placed. It was literally a blink of an eye. The entire trade took 11 seconds according to NT trade log....most of that was me deciding to just close the trade manually once I saw what had happened....
