ES bot did not take any trades today. IB's were around S/R areas. Another losing day for E7 bots. I made some modifications to this bot now to consider pivot points and Weekly S/R areas.

ES bot took one trade today. Good for 12 ticks. E7 bot took 1 trade but it was a loser. Inside bar was followed by out side bar.

Both bots were loser today. Market was too choppy. No clear direction. I guess I should have just stopped both bots on such a day.

Nice job with your journal.

I am wondering if I can ask you to name five things you feel you have significantly improved on so far, and maybe five things that you know you still need a lot of work on. ?

Thanks Mike

Here is what I think,
Things that I have improved
-Being more patient than before. Reduced anxiety and frustration. Accepted the fact that it will take long time before I start seeing profit consistently.
-Moved to ES, E7 from CL which is less volatile and matches with my nature. Also it has reduced risk per trade so now more comfortable with entry exits.
-Decreased number of trades per week to only 4 to 5 good ones and not chasing after every single entry.

Things I need to work on
-Still looking for a better edge. This time trying with semi-automated strategy on ES. Thinking that this will be a better approach. Let's see how it goes. So far it's looking promising.
-Need to work on money management considering my small account.
-Still need to work on psychological aspects of Trading.

No trades today on any instrument. I did not allow any bots to enter market because of choppy conditions.

No Trades on any bot. Morning market was looking very choppy, so I stopped bots from running. In afternoon I allowed shorts only because of down market. But no trade was taken.

Both bots did not take any trades today. In morning market was choppy so I did not allow any trades. In afternoon there was not proper Inside Bar to trade.

I did one manual trade on M6E that was good for 20 ticks.
