Did OK, but a bit busy today so going to call it a day. Actually starting to perform better these days, too bad I'm not going to continue with my combine, charging too much to reset the account, will notice them to stop the subscription next week....going to give MES Capital a shot for a free combine next week. Have a great weekend!

Uneventful day except the opening...did trying to short last night, but got stopped out -1.5 points, see flurry of buying at the open, went long and got out for +1.5 points. I did try to short, got out for breakeven. Looking back, last trade wasn't a good trade because volume just dried up. Should have sit it out!

Have couple more days of the combine before it finished. One thing I can get away from this is to try letting the trade to run, kind of have a feeling when it's just not working, take a loss if it's not working (working progress), and try not to trade at night (must to put stop loss if I do).

08/16/16 New Chapter

Yesterday afternoon I decided to cancel the TST Combine, I feel that it's rather expensive $100/reset on top of the $150 monthly continuous combine. When I started the combine I thought it reset itself once a month, that's what $150 for! I guess I didn't do enough due diligent.

So I sign up for the MES Capital free combine that I can take once a year and started it last night. The goal is higher $2000 instead of $1500 (TST) which is ok. The other thing that kind of annoying is I have to use Rithmic trader to place a trade and watch the candles from NT. They have other platform where you can place the trade from the chart but I'm starting to get used to NT and not willing to say goodbye just yet. So I have to keep track on the Rithmic DOM instead of the chart where I put that particular trade.

Overall the 1st day is good I might say, was a little nervous at the beginning and just want to get a feel on placing the order in Rithmic DOM, that's why you can see I just took a profit for a tick or two.

What a disastrous day! Did make huge points on the FOMC announcement, but instead hitting the reverse, accidently I clicked sell again. Knowing the mistake, instead of getting out I got too pissed and keep holding the bag. My mistake was instead of just have it done for the day, I got greedy and I paid for it...what a game!!!

Another mistake is revenge trading, very very difficult to control so far...I hope with time I can do it.

Did good for the day. The only complain I have is I was trading scared. This scare feeling still linger till today. I pulled most of the trade too early. Looking back each trades I took probably will give me 1 point min each. The positive thing about today is I get back to the winning circle again.

One thing I notice about myself is I need to just call it a day when things just not going my way. It's a working progress, hopefully by writing this (again) I can keep reminding myself toward profitability on the (hopefully) near future.

$200 more to cover the yesterday's loses! Lets Go!!!

Wow....got an opportunity, set a limit order and had to wait a while to get it filled, but did make a quick 1 pt for about 4 minutes...i'll take it!!!

Price started to drop, hit the homework trend line, under 2 std dev, rsi oversold....took a shot and it worked out good. What's so funny about this is just because I got bored watching tv and just want to see how things going with the market, never thought I was so lucky to arrive at the right moment. Definitely a good way to end the night!

Wow, finally cached one big up move, what a lucky day. Mission accomplished for today.

I want to call it a day, I don't want to have another screw up day like last Wednesday where I was up and in the end down a lot + 22 round trips to make up for the big loss (crazy day I'd say). I'm still experimenting on when can I keep going when I'm hot or just stop when I'm ahead...this I believe will come with experience.

Ahh...almost forgot, the ZN trade probably won't count into the combine since MES Capital doesn't do CBOT, only CME products.

Getting closer to daily average goal for the MES Capital combine. Had trouble login in to Rithmic Trader in the morning, so had to start the day an hour late.

A bit nervous on the ZB trade for sure, but I saw it's oversold and saw a big limit order getting filled on the downside, so went along with that, it worked out ok for not being too greedy.

Today is the only day I will be showing the indicators (bubbles) that I'm currently using, using RSI, VWAP, and trend lines are my main indicators. The bubbles indicators is just to help me verifying my trades. Please don't ask me what it is.
