I have multiple screens :
- Wizards Den with oscillators indicating swings
- Gomi giving marked foot print/orderflow
- Kwik pop giving momentum

When everything is converging, i trade but ..... :-)

trading strategy


Hi Ruth,

I only just noticed that you're using a complete different trading strategy then your husband. Have you had a look at his one? I prefer the use of orderflow, but it is something you have to get used to. How are you finding it?

Don't let money control you, control money!

Hi BenG
Thanks for your comment
I'm using an order flow, the Gomi. It's part of my analyse.
It's help me to look at the direction of the market.
But i always cross my informations between my other tools

Today i make a summary, i made a few very good trades and a lot of bad trades.
The bad trades, i know my failures...
I have the good tools but i'm missing the bigger picture.
How can i see the bigger picture ?
Often if i talk with my husband @rleplae, he can talk about the context and the bigger picture ... i can not :-(
I don't know if it's me or the tools we are using. We don't use the same .
I was a little bit lost and lost courrage.
I finished the day POSITIVE with 160,00Usd but .... over traded.
If i look at the seven days i'm positive but.... could be better and.... i'm not really a good trader, yet.

Sorry to disagree, but you're doing well....

Positive for the day, positive for the seven days. Not at all bad.

Everyone makes mistakes and everyone needs to improve in some way, but the results so far are showing something real, and you should realize that.

Good luck as you go forward.

Bob.

Hi Bob
Thanks a lot for your comment. I'm positive and it's ok, you are right. However i think that i'm doing too much trades and that, it can be possible to work with less for a better or the same result. I think that i have to filter more because for some trades it seems that i can wait for "confirmation" of the momentum...

It's nice to receive encouragement from you

Best regards
Ruth

8th October

I have traded 1 contract per trade only
still too many trades but positive

I focused on GC while CL was the better instrument to trade
It is difficult for me to concentrate on mutliple instruments at the same time
CL moved a lot yesterday but i missed a lot of the moves

I can't do that at all. Also, 1 contract probably is wise right now.

The biggest danger in trading that I have found is in letting my attention get pulled too many ways, so I can't keep focus when I need to. Just what I've found, anyway....

Bob.

Images a little too small to read. It would be better if you made a different image for each screen shot....
