Been in futures since 2012 bounced around trading the ES and currencies, made some lost some with real money back to sim looking for real consistency. Now looking hard at CL part-time and the morning and parts during the day. I want to end goal to become a full time trader. I do have a career but it doesn't interest me as much as trading.
Techniques & tools: Renko charts, volume profiles, MACD, Stochastics. Oscillators are from the renko charts, I think it still works but we will find out.
So far before starting this trading journal there's some inconsistencies, I want to stick to a plan and trade off of it and also record everything I am doing to see what I am doing wrong.
Another thing I am doing is I am not getting back at trading real money unless I find consistency
If I lose more than 20 ticks a day, add 2 more days on the sim, if I lose more than 30 add 3 more days on the sim etc.
Entry was a bit early didn't like it, and blew it on the early exit. This was disappointing as I was waiting for a week for a run like this, had to go to work so sold off.
Entry would have like to enter off of the last lower high. And a mistake that went in my way was I held through Crude inventories which came in my favor.
And chasing that reversal cost me 20 ticks, dumb move in such a aggressively short market.
It was based on a move couple weeks ago a down day and a huge reversal. Didn't get it here, will look for more confirmation next time. (What happened before doesn't mean it's bound to happen again)
+2 ticks overall
Looks like I might be pretty much done for the day unless I see a miracle
Thought process was there maybe 7/10
execution I would give myself 2/10
