My day trading journal using The Intentional Trader rules

A little history, I began trading in about 1994, when we used paper charts mailed to you! I have never been what I felt was a "successful" trader, I would win a little and lose a lot. I have tried options trading, position trading, swing trading and now have settled on day trading. The reason I like day trading is because I can get in and out very quickly and not have my money exposed to the markets for very long. The less time I'm a trade, the more I like it! I am currently trading the CL, FDAX, TF, YM, NQ and (rarely) ES.

I joined The Intentional Trader in March 2014, I purchased their full indicator package, trading room access and the "VIP" membership. I am not affiliated with them in any way except for being a customer. I began by SIM trading their setup's using the indicators that I purchased from them. Once I developed confidence with the setups, I started trading "live" with real money on January 12th 2015.

The reason I am starting this journal is to keep an electronic record of the trades that I take and to make myself accountable for those trades, I now believe accountability is very important to consistent, successful trading. I will be posting screenshots along with my daily and monthly results and a brief explanation of each trade. My results will probably not be typical of others in the IT trading room since I currently have to trade while at work, there are many distractions and trades I miss because of this. These results are my personal trades, trading "live" with real money. I will post all trades, winners, losers, etc.

Welcome to the journey!

Since you are journaling about a vendor, I want to let everyone know this thread is not appropriate to discuss the vendor's performance, pricing, product, services, etc in this thread.

There is an existing vendor thread for that:

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)

Mike,

Understood, I will not be discussing the performance, pricing, product, services, etc, only the trades that I take.

Trades for 1/16/2015

CL: Short, Speed/Flash.... +5 (very quick trade)
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


NQ: Short, Speed/Flash.... -7
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


FDAX: Short, INVALID Speed/Flash, it was an invalid setup due to the open of the bar being more than 5 ticks away from the HOD (green dash line). Costly mistake, lesson learned!
