I'm Ruth, I'm living between Israel and Belgium, I started trading more or less 8 months ago.
I'm not a technician i'm just a trader, a beginner :-)

I'm working with tools that my husband @rleplae installed for me.
While trading futures I discovered a very exciting activity.

I would like to learn and progress with all of you, that is why i joined the forum.

My preference is trading crude and gold.
My tools are Ninja Trader, Gomi (order flow), Wizard Den template (oscillator).

Nice job journaling @Ruth.

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.

Journal 1/10/2014

I was away during the afternoon and when back home i was too anxious to jump into any first possible trade
---> I must be more patient

I traded 5 contracts, it is too much
---> I will ony trade 1 contract

I did not always follow all my rules
---> I must be more strict

Result of the day : +600
I overtraded, too many contracts and too many trade setups
I trade when different tools converge, but i didn't do it well today
I trade SIM

I am not technical, i just following my rules and i like to feel the market
market was a bit choppy

"Just following your rules" and "feeling the market" are very good things to do.

Good day today. Good work.

Bob.
