I have set up everything using ninja trader. I am now trading the es using two contracts. I took one trade today and lost 200 dollars.


I have been very busy with school lately so I haven't had as much time as I wanted to trade. Gotta know when to trade and when to just take a break

TennisOrDie are you still trading "price action", I see that you have flip over to ES which is the market that I trade. Have you set up your charts now that you are trading a different market?

How many trades? How much commission?

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)

This might sound absolutely ridiculous. I took 92 trades while scalping with a 2 tick target and 4 tick stop loss. I traded with 4 contracts for a bit and then moved down to 2. I only take trades when the market is trending. I'd like to hear your thoughts Mike

Hey @TennisOrDie,

Could you post some charts with you entries and exits? I'm curious to see on a chart where you trade. I appreciate it.

Also, What's your name mean? Sounds interesting.

Everytime I see a new post on this thread it reminds me of this song LOL




Cheers,

I will post some trades later today. I am back to trading 2-5 times a day instead of that day where I traded 90 times super scalping 2 ticks. I am trading 4 contracts going for 1 point on the ES with a 2 point stop loss. Sometimes I will use runners for extra points, but only if the setup looks very good. I am still using PATS method with stochastic fast and a 21 TMA

Since I am busy with school I have been playing around with swing trades/longer term trades. This is a position I entered into today.
