ES bot -11 ticks, E7 bot no trades

ES bot took 1 short today that was against the trend. It ended up with 11 ticks stop loss.

E7 bot did not take any trades today. I have made changes in E7 bot this weekend to ignore pivot point and support/resistance lines. It may not be a good idea, but because I am running it on 30 minutes chart my profit target always comes across some S/R lines. So let's see how it goes.

No manual live trades today.

ES bot no trades, E7 bot 1 tick

No trades on ES bot today. E7 bot took 1 trade, but then exited at BE because I set it up to exit after 3.30pm.

No live trades today as well.

ES bot -11 ticks, E7 bot 1 tick

Huge upward movement today and ES tried to take another short today. Lost by 11 ticks. So now it's net -22 ticks for this week. I think I need to monitor bot manually when market is in strong trend.

E7 took 1 trade that exited at BE. Same trade was a loss on M6E because of large spreads.

Will you be posting your bot in Battle of the Bots?

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

ES bot no trades, E7 bot -28 ticks

No trades on ES bot today as well. 1 trade on E7 but it was a loser. I have no reason why it lost. I will consider it as a normal loss.
