DAX and BUND

DAX:

Limit Buy S1 (5840) was in between 08:00 and 09:00 preMarket so I didnt trade that one.
Possible entry here again will not work.

In the DAX I have to wait for the R1 (5994) or the top mark R3 (6114) for action. But probably there my trade direction will change to long. So DAX in between 5840 and 6114 will be range trading. Better no trading.

Next possibility is the Limit Buy at 5780.

BUND:

like in DAX - maybe no trades here too. range.

uncertainty

Cool, I just read that artilce from "The Kirk Report" about uncertainty. Thats exactly what matters me in the DAX (BUND) today. I am uncertain. For me that results in not trading this day.

The Kirk Report : Learn To Love Uncertainty

Probably through my "Game Plan" (thats my long/meduin/short-term analysis) I am prepared for trading each day.

2nd trial with my trading journal - This is the plan:

--> every morning I will note down a short trading plan for the day, containing:
  • maximum risk I want to take
  • my psychological and physical state
  • my goal for the day, that I try to achieve
  • short analysis for the markets I trade
--> at the end of the day:
  • a short summary of my performance
  • some things I want to improve tomorrow

Nice to see your back

Can you tell me, did the free iPad / $600 tablet contest motivate you to restart your journal? I'd like to know so I can keep track of which contests work the best.

Thx
Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

From seeing the 20 new journals and the more frequent updates, then I would say your program is definitely working!
