There will be no review of positive and negative aspects in today`s weekly report. I will concentrate on my mistakes during high volatility market.

Weekly trading statistic
PNL: -740$
Win ratio: 24%
Risk/reward: 1,9
Playbook: 56%
Profit index: 0,34

Description: It was fail at friday when volatility was on the top of week and iam start trade after open! CRAZY!!

On each fail you must learn! This is way to grow!

Additional rule and idea about high volatility market

1. Don`t trade first 30-60 minutes ofter open, volatility is more then enough to trade other time. During this time prepare same delta support/resistance area!
2. Don`t trade "Sell stop" or "Buy stop" pattern. Becouse limit players can`t hold price. Look same big delta in your direction.

3. Always wait close VWAP gap. Or trade in close direction. This is rule work always (not only on high volatility market). VWAP gap can not close only if same strong news or any unuasual situation!

4. Idea how do pre market plan better:
- Add level from day and 1-hour chart;
- Don`t need add all my work level (.10;.30;.50;....) only add level where iam wait same reaction;

Market comment
1. Today is Tuesday and volatility is dangerous high like yday and iam not trade during this volatility.

2. Crazy pre market today. Sell off during him.

3. Iam look this market and iam may be understand how i can trade this type of market. This is direction market with big delta directon. During this type of market trade only "Sell off" and "Strong buy" pattern with PB. Not trade "Sell stop" or "Buy stop" becouse no body wait when market came to his sell limit order and give him collect position. All players too agressive and work with big market order.


Market recap

Market comment
It was crazy volatility day! BUT:
1. Iam find and understand what market during low volatility and high volatility work approximatly same and move from volume to volume.
2. Move my edge volatility back to 25, but with rule:
- If volatility 20-25 trade only "PB to DA" pattern
3. Market show me what i must trade on this type of market! Great!

Main moment
"PB to DA" pattern on volatility market (example):

Description: Two main things:
1. Seat on hands and wait strong delta momentum, delta must be more then 400;
2. Wait PB during 15-40 minutes;

Trading statistic
PNL: 260$
Win ratio: 50%
Risk/reward: 3,07
Playbook ratio: 0% (IMPORTANT)
Profit index: 0,4

Description: It was great day for learning, but my trade was lucky! Normaly i can easy have loss;

P.S. Main thing after this trading (testing) day:
1. Don`t trade if volatility more then 25.
2. If volatility 20-25 trade only "PB to DA"
3. Task: Prepare at weekend report comment for ALL volatility period and do same exactly trade rule.

So many times I was discouraged and wanted to abandon my trading model. I pushed through adding filters and gaining understanding of market flow.

A great method was scheduled for destruction. My mind said it had to work but it wasn't.

I was the problem and learned how to get out of my away.

The model has produced roughly 65k and 6 weeks left in the fiscal year. Hoping for 75k or better.\

Thank you for the post and best wishes for you trading.

During not trading week I prepare same idea and plan for be better then before and here my idea during Pre Market Time.

Pre Market Status:
Delta:
(+/- 1k): Neutral;
> 1k: Positive;
<(-1k): Negative;
Description: In future i will be test which delta more important during pre market US time (1 hour BMO or all ON session).

Price:
(+/- 0,3%-0,5%): Neutral;
> 0,5%: Positive;
< (-0,5%): Negative;
Description: 0,3% or 0,5% this must look together with volatility and experence.

Delta momentum:
Example I add during next pre market plan when picture will be clear for example.

Summery: Base on this three parametrs i will be have same short info about pre market.
In totaly i will be have 3 statuses (ex. Postive):
1. Strong positive (+,+,+);
2. Positive ( 2 plus and 1 neutral);
3. Neutral (Mixed);

Next good additional idea for trading plan.

Pivot Point Reversal 10%

Example:


RULES:
1. After PPR price must go around 10% without any strong pullback;
2. Price must go around 10% (can be less for example 8% BUT without pullback);
3. When draw this PPR Level always move to integer number (ex. 7223--->7220)

Happy Monday

Major info
1. EU accept "Brexit rules" and now wait info from Parlament UK
2. Pre-market status: Positive

Pre-market plan


Description: Monday I start always with positive Long scenario and today i think can be good chance for price PB to 6700 area.
Sceanrio1: This is scenario typicaly base on PB to same support area to 6600 area. And find same strong buyers with strong positive delta
Sceanrio2: Price open with same sideway move during first 15-30 min and after find same support to continue go higher
Scenario3: Same negative short scenario will be active if came strong bad news and i will be see same strong sell delta

Market recap

Day comment
1. Normaly sideway day with strong gap (> +1%).
2. Trading was very bad BUT with good lesson and idea how it can be better.

Trading view

Description: Nothing interest, only may be 6600 can be potential S/R area;

Market context

Description: After strong gap i think same long period sideway move it normal;

Trading statistic
PnL: (-860$)
Playbook ratio: 0%

Description: Focus on mistake!
Mistake 1: My stratagy mast be base on PULL BACK to Trading zone or Delta Area (exeption: ATR, strong support and it begin of move);
Mistake 2: Delta area can be wide then 2$. For better understand picture look volume profile
Mistake 3: Completly WRONG exit!! Add to Playbook stratagy exit point

Playbook exit stratagy
Description: Before enterence I must understand where I will be exit!
Example №1

Description: If price stay long time in range this is way will be more careful and easy
Example №2

Description: Best example!! I must focus on this scenario
P.S. Does not metter which scenario i will be use! First of one I must focus on enterence and exit opportunitys.

After a few terrible days with losses (-700$:-800$) I stopped and realized that I need to take a break and look at the problems that I have in trading.
Since trading is associated with risks and losing days will always be and this is normal, but every time I have a losing day always goes beyond my day loss (-450$) and this is a problem. I worked all the latest statistics for 6 months and found out that big loss-making days are always very volatile and I do these days for 6-10 trades!

Given the facts that there are no problems with the trading strategy and all work with it is moving systematically towards improvement, then the problem is in risk management.

Two major issues in my current trading:
1. I do not control my risks and my day loss rule is never fulfilled.
2. My trading is volatile!

After reading some interesting books on psychology (for example: David Rok-Your Brain at work and etc.) I understand that some bugs are in the field of normal human psychology to work on them is very difficult and much more effective to develop rules that would the situation have not reached the point poyavlenie these errors.

The essence of my problem: When reaching a loss of (-450$), I usually already make 5-6 trades. After completing 5-6 bad trades my emotional level goes beyond the controlled and I continue to make stupid trades to achieve large losses (-800$). Accordingly, achieving high emotional stress, I can't say to yourself "today stop".

Solution: Focus not on money, focus on the quality and quantity of trades.
Risk management rules:
1. After 3 executed trades pause and look the result of executed trades in money (Rithmic Pro). If the loss exceeds (-250$) then all stop trading and close the working terminal.
2. Maximum 4 trades per day and all stop trading and close the working terminal!

Example:

Description: Main idea this is picture and my logic about emotinal spiral it that each next stupid trade add much more negative emotion then previus.

4. Summery: Same short rule and plan give good opportunities for take profit market!
5. Weekly trading stat

About Tuesday
PNL: 24$
Win ratio: 33%
Risk/reward: 2,23
Playbook ratio: 67%

Market comment and main idea
1. One of my main rule it don`t trade during rollover. It correct becouse Order Flow work very bad.
2. At Tuesday i was done three trades and stop on pause like in my Risk Managment scenario. Perfect! after pause iam concentrate on opportunities becouse understnad what i have only one trade and this is trade must be 100% right or i will be have day loss. After this situation I understnad what Risk Managment based on quantity for me is much better way than on loss in money.
3. Next week must be very careful and I must work with my Trading Zone, Pettern and new Risk Managment model.
