Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Trade 02 6B
Same trade with the same result! Short off a possible local double top. Entry confirmed by volume, buying exhaustion and a little of a selling momentum. Another quick stop out.

April 11th trading


Trade 01 6B
Long off a volume transition from premarket low. Entry confirmed by volume, selling exhaustion and a little buying momentum. Quick stop out with awful slippage. That was the last whip down before it rocketed up.
P/L: -$617,70


Trade 02 6J
Long off a volume transition from premarket low. Another stop out to the tick!
P/L: -$617,70


Trade 03 6E
Short off a triple top aligned with swing VWAP. Third stop of the day.
P/L: -$430,20


Total daily P/L: -$1665,60
Daily resumé: F

Ok, today is a breaking point. Six losses in a row and the combine rules are almost broken. Even though the account is down 1.1 %, I am going to revisit the methodology.

April 12th trading

Ok, two more losses today and the combine rules are broken for maximum drawdown.

This is the time to step aside a go back to see what happened. I still beleive those decision points. I am going back to training ground and try to re-iterate the process.

April 20th trading

Futures Edge on FIO
All right. Continuing with the concept. I have changed the entry point.

Trade 01 6J

Short off a double top which was also a double top from yesterday’s session. Entry confirmed by volume and a little of selling momentum. After 2:1 target the market whipped back to almost get me out. Luckily it turned south again and went to get 3:1, 4:1 and 8:1 levels. Too bad the recorder was off. Image only.
P/L: $1313,55

Yen was stuck in a range for the whole day. There are 4 trades on the screen.

Trading Journal for FIO Journal Challenge - September 2016


All right, a new challenge begins tomorrow.

What is my plan going to be?

Game rules: I will try to follow the current Topstep Trader Trading Combine plan for 30k. That means:
Initial account balance: $30 000
Max size: 3 lots
Max daily loss: $500
Max drawdown: $1500
Profit target: $1500 (my daily profit is set to $300)

I am going to trade a SIM account!

Platform: NinjaTrader 7
Tools: OFA/Ninja, OFA/Algo
Instruments: 6B, 6E, 6J

Strategy: Trading reversals or breakouts from previous decision points. After entry, stop is set behind a local cluster of volume. Targets are set to risk reward ratios 2:1, 3:1 and 7:1. If the trade goes my way the stop follows the value area edge and then the swing VWAP.
