ES JOURNAL > Stochastic Divergence Journal

Hi there,

So I am very proud to announce that this is my first journal ever, despite having been "trading" for the past two years.

I will mention that this is a live sim journal, not a "real money" journal.

My model is based on stochastic divergence.

I have traded the ES for about a year and the other year was backtesting.

Due to professional and personal commitments I will not be able to post everyday.

For obvious reasons, and that I have an offline journal, I will not be posting trades in real time (but as soon as the trade is done).

I appreciate honest posts , ie constructive criticism.

Please keep posts professional (and conduct yourself like one) , any childish arguing, and I will ask Big Mike and the mods to remove you from my thread.

Thank You so much for participating in my Journal.

Trade One: Short/Profit


Trade One: Short/Profit



Went short at 2003.25 (placed limit order at 2.25) at the 1min candle of 13h32.

Initial Stop at 4.5, after I noticed the long red candle's high at 13h36 was below the signal candle at 13h32 > I dropped the stop to the high of the 13h32 candle to 3.75 .

As you can see the little blue candle at 13h38 shows that I was filled at my target at 2000.25, but I want the readers of this journal to realize I will only consider a fill if prices drops below one tick of my target.

From my experience of trading the ES, I know that you cannot be filled if price briefly touches 2000.25 (your target).

Therefore I "held" the trade until price penetrated through my calculated target of 2000.25 at the 14h01 candle.

It was a little scary that price went adverse and hit 3.5 (nearly hitting my stop of 3.75) .......but pyschologically I'm like "if I get stopped out no big deal"

So first trade was profitable, let me not let that get to my head (as in the past)

In over six years of the forum, there is only one other guy that has ever spammed mentions like you just did. And he was banned. Just need a moment to remember his name, and then I'll investigate.
