A bit of a mixed day where I had a good trade to start, but then couldn't get out of my way. A good example of the type of mistakes I make. There were just so many trades that I shouldn't have made. It's hard to post a video like this, but I think this is a good opportunity. So feel free to rip me to shreds on this one.

Looks like I screwed up today's recording. You can't see the screen at all because I messed up the scenes. I was able to get 4 ticks out of slow trading. Pretty happy as I've had trouble in slow areas before.

Caught a big winner to the downside today. Overall my execution wasn't that great, but I read the signals well. I started to see lots of confirmation, and doubled up on the trade.

I had another good winner today, but I also had some embarrassing mistakes.

Hi TWDsje, good video journal.. amazing actually. I really appreciate the effort you put on this. One question, who is the man you talk with? Your mentor?

The people you hear me speaking with are the members of GPI Trading Group

The one you hear the most is probably John Bottomly, and he has certainly helped mentor me. I used to be consistently losing every day before I started talking to him. Right now I come out about even. It's very different from what I've heard about your typical trading room, and I highly recommend it.

Hi TWDsje!

My programming skills are not at the level where I could program what I need from scratch. However, if I could get my hands on the code for a simple strategy, I could modify it to incorporate a "BarClose" function (this would place an order on the close of the current bar).

Ideally, if I could get the code for a strategy similar to ChartTrader, this would be great!

Is this what you had in mind with your offer?

Thanks.

So I understand that people generally will want to keep a strategy to themselves. So for my programming videos I'm definitely trying to highlight things that people should be able to take and adapt. Solve the technical hurdles per say. So if you can go into a more general idea of what you need to accomplish I could take a look.

Today was a slower moving market, but a clear trend helped me pull out a great profit today. I feel that I was much more disciplined today, and I'm really happy with my results.

Hi Seth. Thanks for the response.

I meant "strategy", as in "ATM Strategy" in the sense that NinjaTrader uses it: a tool to preset order quantity, stop level(s), target level(s), etc. Not in the sense of "trading strategy" such as, for example, "a crossover of a slow EMA with a fast EMA", etc.

What I'm looking for is the same thing as NinjaTrader's ChartTrader with one additional function: the ability to enter into a position on the close of a bar (enter long if the bar closes UP, for instance). I know that ChartTrader's source code is not available. I'm pretty sure that if I had the code for something similar, I could figure out how to add this additional function to it. That's all.

Thanks.

Another unexpected good trading day. I took several good scalps on the level break trades. As good as it was I could have made even more if I hadn't stopped out on one of the earlier trades.

Pay particular attention for buyers absorbing contracts near the highs. I've found a lot of traders get fooled by this kind of action thinking it shows weakness. It's a great indication that the move will continue.



Starting to get a lot of questions so feel free to PM me or comment on the videos. I'll try to answer them in a video at a later date.
