The Price Journal

INTRODUCTION

The Price Journal

Hello.


This is my first time posting here in BM, I want to participate in the “October trading Journal Contest”, try to improve my Trading skills by having feedback and the most important thing is try to create a habit of study the market on a daily basis. I hope you like it and could help me with this process.

So, first of all I would like to give you a summary of me as a trader, I have been trading since 2012 in a demo mode, and trying to understand the price action in the markets, I have been trading mainly futures of crude oil on an intraday basis using Ninja Trader. About my style as a trader I follow just the price action; I like pretty much the Wyckoff Approach and I have taken some elements of his studies to create my trading plan, moreover I´d like to mention that all my work is been done with a mentor who has been supporting me with all this process.

So in first instance, I’m going to publish my trading plan with the details of my strategy and after that I´m going to start updating trades of my Forward testing process which is going to be done from the second week of January of this Year (01/2014), each week I´m going to upload my excel sheet with the performance of the trades.


For more specificity you could see the trading plan attached


Hope you like.

Nice job journaling @lajax.

I want to let you and all your readers know that in October futures.io (formerly BMT) has a Trading Journal contest w/prizes. The contest runs October 1 to October 31, and the three best journals (as decided by futures.io (formerly BMT) members) will receive a 150K combine from TopstepTrader.

The contest thread is here:

https://futures.io/feedback-announcements/33355-october-trading-journal-contest-w-prizes.html

That thread will be open for posting starting Wednesday, October 1. As the author of your journal, you need to make a post in that thread linking to your journal, and then ask users to press the "Thanks" button on that post if they want to vote for your journal to win the contest.

Members can vote for as many different journals as they want. Votes are cast in the Contest thread only, and only on the first post made by the author of the journal that contains a link to their journal. This is done so I can easily count the "Thanks Received" by author/journal, and award the three prizes.

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hi.

I have one question, why don´t you put a fix percentage to risk in each trade, you just let the same size of the position in each trade?
