Here is another video by Tim Racette of emini-mind

I do not recommend or use any of the services in this website. I do not use internals as mentioned here. Please use it as an introduction to market internals and nothing more.

Improve Your Entries & Exits with Market Internals | EminiMind

Very useful introductory video. Thanks.

I can begin to see how it may help me stay out of bad trades/location. This weekend will be busy for me

So far too narrow range of 7 points. Not big enough to hit my targets.

I m considering shorts at 1987 vPOC but risk is elevated due to potential Y-high test and my stops in the crossfire.

Short 2007. Same 4, 8 & 12 points target. Stop at 2015. Risking stop run above 2011 Fomc high. But, hey, reward looks sweet too if we snap back to vWAP.

Edit - 1st target 2003 hit on pullback.

Covered the rest around 2004. Reason, spike up and close near HOD is likely.

October 8 summary

Though it may appear like I didn't execute as per my original plan, it's for obvious reasons.

1. Flat day with very little volatility until Fed minutes.
2. Odds were even for upside/downside move with no edge for me.
3. After FOMC release, I was short 2008, fading a strong move. After the 1st target of 4 points was hit, I waited for a bit but closed the rest of my position as we ran out of time.

-----


Overall, I am finding this exercise very beneficial. (Far more useful than my initial expectations)

I had 2 important lessons so far.

1. I am more Patient before I enter the market and spend more time on analysis & anticipation.
2. Once, I am in, instead of helplessness, I feel relieved and suddenly become a passive observer.


I am neither religious not spiritual (yet) but the above 2 points remind me of the famous quote from Bagvat Gita (similar to Bible or Qaran)

'Do your duties, Don't expect the reward'.

First target hit.

Stop 2020.

Targets 2007, 2003 and 1999.

Check out the $TICK. It has lower lows. TRIN is sitting over 1, so while that doesn't mean it's oversold, it also doesn't mean it should be going down.

I can't see my AD lines/breadth since I'm at work, not sure how to pull that up on my mobile TOS. Not sure if the $ADRN symbol on barchart.com is telling me the same thing, which is - who knows lol.

Anyways, I'm long ES.

Looks like you should hit your targets though.

October 9 summary

Is it beginner's luck or what?

All targets hit today. Grade A for 3 days, Grade B yesterday and 1 Grade C.

I have visualised a good way to analyse my entries/exits. I have to figure out a way to execute that in Powerpoint.
Time to improve my excel skills as my database of trades is going to grow.
Finally, I am going to dive into Market Internals.

This long weekend will be busy and quick for me

I'm intrigued; what are you doing with PP exactly? Care to give an example, even if using fake data?

Sample daily analysis

It may be rudimentary stuff for specialists out there. Pls give some slack for my non-tech background.

What I am hoping to do is to EFFORTLESS -ly analyse my trading record in the future. I also want that to be a learning experience where my problems are easier to see.

For illustration, I have attached a sample (fairly close to today's price action)

It's a candle-bar with my trade location and results inside.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I can get lot of info from this simple chart.

It's a bearish day.
Narrow range
My short was at a good location
with minimal heat
Captured most of the range. i.e No room for winners
My direction aligned with Market direction.


I am hoping to find a way where I can just input my entry/exit numbers with high/low numbers, either in Powerpoint table or excel and get a prettier chart. That's what I meant.

There is probably a more efficient way to do it. If you know, pls let me know. I will do some research too.

I think that's awesome. I'm a huge visual guy myself. I draw my journal on 4x6 index cards. Here's the truth: don't get fooled Into thinking high tech journaling is the answer. It has to be fast to journal, and fast to review later. Looks like you pinged both accounts. The only "downside" (grain of salt here) is difficulty in using data analysis like you can through excel, i.e. histogram analysis (another visual tool, BTW).

Maybe you can copy and paste into excel? Idk but if it works then whatEVER LOL.

Anyways, I LOVE this.
