Starting a TST continuous combine, 100k account & trade NT7. Its the last one, I failed several times before, but now I will make it
Crude oil only, SL usually 10 ticks with 2 contracts. May the SL 20 ticks, than open 1 contract only. So the risk is 200$ / trade.
After 3 looser in a row, Im done for the day.
After winners and the 1st looser Im also finished the day.
My main chart is M5, mark levels on M30/M15. Main trend direction also defined on these charts.
No range bars, they hide the price action and too fast for me.
Also deleted all trailing stop ATM, only set BE at +20 tick, and will manually follow as trade progress.
After 3 big moving day, and Crude Oil Inventories today I will wait patiently.

Daily charts looks interesting, must be cautious around 48.50, yesterday's close. Above 50.40 I think it can go higher.
Also news releases in 1 hour, right now at 49.50 maybe a short oppurtunity. Lets see what happens, and stay calm
15:05 (5 mins after pit open) sell lmt 2C 49.54 SL -9 -9
15:11 sell because here is a sell zone (market delta suports aswell)
2C 49.54 MX +24 at pivot, XX +35 by SL
15:26 sell lmt 49.37 SL -10 -10
--dont open new trade close to 15:30 market open--
15:38 1 C buy because buy limits was below, and I had a feel of break out
NT7 frozen.... could exit blindly 49.70, -6
16:00 Buy lmt 49.90 MX +32 XX +110 @ 51.00
Total +157 ticks, +1537 $ on account.
If you have idea why NT7 doesnt deduct commission, please let me know. Its set in the options of course.
This trade was worth a try,
risk eliminated in 6 minutes, remaining unit should close around 52.00 but I missed, than decided to test maybe continue down. Was not, but easy +43 ticks on 2 C.
11:11 sell 52.45 MX +22, SL XX +21

here are the trades:
13:01 buy 1C 52.02, SL -10 bad setup
15:20 buy support 2C 51.16, cannot take out half at 10 tick, not enough push so manually close -5 -5
15:37 sell 2C 51.50, MX +24, XX +5 -> this was a stupid idea, and my brain problems started here
16:18 buy 1C 51.70 SL -9
16:21 sell 1C 51.54 - very stupid move, no setup at all
16:25 buy again 51.72 SL -10
these 3 trades were totally useless on friday
17:22 sell 51.51 2C SL -10 -10 i wanted to sell only 1 C, next time must correct immediately if entry has technical problem
17:43 buy 1C 51.53 XX +24 and enough for today
Today I overtraded and my last trade made back to the half profit, where I was in the lunchtime. Ahh, couldnt wait more, its 20 tick more hehe. I had a feeling that 52.00 will be reached, why couldnt wait that?
today +27 ticks, many trade so account +222 $
Thanks God, even with my stupid moves its a positive day! Tomorrow snowboarding, and a fresh start on monday.
Have a nice weekend for everyone
