Yeah, everything is ok. I basically had to close my account at Ninja and use that money to take care of some situations I was in but things are looking up.

I took down the YouTube videos out of frustration when I had to close my futures trading account. Probably won't do any videos. Just not my personality. I am too logical and to make good videos you need a bit more than a Spock mindset. LOL!

I have been trading demo lately with Amp Futures. I have also opened a live account with them. Why not go back to Ninja? First, the amount of time it takes to open an account. Last time it was about a week and a half to get everything opened and funded. Kind of archaic in 2019 terms. Amp only took 2 days total and part of that time was me having to explain my username and email. LOL! Second, Ninja was a bit weird in how you requested withdrawals. You didn't have to log in or anything, just fill out a form on their site then someone would process the withdrawal. Every withdrawal had a fee. If I do an ACH withdrawal from AMP it is free.

I plan on going live again Tuesday. I will revive this thread and together we will build a small account to something worth bragging about. We can do that now that we have the micro NQ available. We will start with a little over $500 USD and see what we can do from there.

Now.... Y'ALL HOLD MY BEER AND LET'S DO THIS!

I got moved to a new team, new work habit, new cloud software to learn and code, not much energy to post or answer mail or watch the chart. But I also switch to micro NQ and it's pretty relaxing win or lose, I sleep well holding it overnight, welcome back.

Ok, first day back......

Pre-Market: Light volume overnight. Just over 50k on NQ 1 hour 45 minutes before the US market opens. No significant news events on the calendar but you never know when the markets will over react to some random news hiccup.

Trade plan: Trading just Micro NQ at this point. Stick to the 5 minute as much as possible. Just looking at the overnight movement the 5 minute looks smooth. If I miss an entry I will drop down to try and find a good spot to join the trend. If it looks choppy after the open I will scalp for a while. Starting out on the micro lots.

I will post my trades with explanations after I am done for the day.

Hope everyone has a green day.

Nothing to see today. LOL! markets started out really choppy and in a tight range. Made me wonder if they are waiting on the ADP employment numbers tomorrow or if it is just a holiday week kind of thing.

I can't even find any decent trades looking in hindsight. I think the markets figured out I was live again and just wanted to mess with me. LOL!

Broke the ice today and took a trade. Didn't turn out in my favor but that's trading. Managed the risk really well and only dropped 10 bucks. Exited before it got to my stop (it would have reached my stop). Wasn't the best of trades as far as the entry goes but tomorrow will be better.

Going to stay away from the lower time frames. Need to focus on the 5 minute and above.

Hope everyone had a green day. More details and pics tomorrow. I should have plenty of time trading the 5 minute instead of trying to scalp the lower time frames.

Funny you mention that buddy, I got torn up trying to play the M1 and M3... turns out M5 is like the bare minimum for most human day traders and we'd probably be better off if we went higher, but intraday... lol... great to hear from ya man.

Time for an update:

First of all let me say that since the last time I posted here I have not had one single day of losing money!!! What's my secret? I haven't traded since the last time I posted here.

In all seriousness I am going to start trading again. The account is funded and ready to go so I have no excuses. Going to stick with NQ for now. I am actually using MT5 for my trading. I may go back to NT but for now, MT5 works just fine and I don't need anything fancy anyway. All those bells and whistles are just distractions. All I need to know is price going up or down. I am not really interested in catching the top or the bottom just a small slice of any trend will be my friend.

Good thing I didn't start today, that's some ugly price movement on NQ.

Hope everyone finished out 2019 strong and 2020 is your best year ever!

Wondering why I am up so early when the markets don't open in the US for another 3+ hours.... I know.... it's insanity. LOL!

Looking back at historical price movement a part of me sees the times price moves nicely pre-US-market and I think how nice it would be to catch one of those moves. Jump in, make the trade and be done before the madness starts.

In reality, the overnight moves are very inconsistent. Some days Asia and Europe come out to play but most days they don't.

I think I need to reset my alarm for about 1 hour before market open. That would give me enough time to get fully awake and ready. Probably not today since I am already awake with caffeine flowing through the veins.

Will need to be cautious today with the China trade deal signing as well as other Geopolitical BS going on around the world. Watched the market drop like a rock when they announced some rockets landing in or around US military bases... Dropped 40 points down and then back up 30 points all within a 5 minute window. This is the unpredictable side of current market conditions. Keep the stops tight.

Took a small win off of a rejection candle on the 15 min chart. Just a single micro contract for about 6 ticks. Since it was counter trend I didn't want to hold it too long. More of a psychological win than anything. Main thing is that I controlled my emotions when it went against me for a little bit. It came close to my stop but didn't take it out.

Just trying to build confidence again.

No trades for me today. Woke up to a soaking wet carpet. House is all torn apart right now. Thank goodness for insurance. About 10-15k in repairs needed. Going to be a lovely couple of months. Oh well. 2020 throwing curves already. LOL!

I will be trading Friday.

Didn't trade Friday... too much noise in the house with all of the drying fans and dehumidifiers. I actually thought about heading to the mountains this week just to get away but insurance adjusters and hopefully the crew will be in to start putting it all back together..

We got real lucky that the builder left about a 1 inch gap at the bottom of the sheetrock. Water level never touched it so it's just a matter of replacing baseboards, carpet, linoleum and one vanity.

Anyway, no trades today as well. Very low volume due to holiday. Been spending my time backtesting some theories that I have about entries. I think one of the most difficult things to do as a trader is to be completely objective when it comes to finding new things to add to your trading. So easy to see all the winning trades when you can see the results. Not as easy when the results haven't happened yet.

Been a wild week or so for me. Not to get into too many details but lots of personal life changes underway.

So.....just did a little sim trading last week. Will get back to live this week.

Took one trade today for a whopping 8 ticks of profit. I closed the trade because my entry sucked. I chased the price movement instead of letting it come to me. When I realized what I had done I closed the trade. I watched the markets for a while after that and just decided to take it easy. I am ok with it. profit is profit even if it is only 4 bucks. LOL! Spent it all and then some getting pizza delivered. Well worth it.

On to tomorrow. Hope everyone caught some of the madness today and it went your direction.

Dang I suck at journaling.

Ok, here is what is going on right now.

1. I have started taking the Earn-To-Trade gauntlet and I am currently on day 14 with 14 winning days. Not saying I didn't have losing trades but by the end of each day I have been net positive. Unless I get a strong runner today and/or tomorrow, it will likely take me beyond the 15 day minimum. I am ok with that. What's been most important for me was to build consistency, to not revenge trade and to take as many of my set ups as possible. In my opinion, the way they have the gauntlet set up is the most fair of the three companies I have tried over the last year or so. You are required to take the gauntlet with the same rules as a funded trader. They also give you a free 60 day trial of Journalytics which is nice.

2. I have temporarily stopped trading my personal account. Didn't really do any damage to it just couldn't push myself to trade it consistently when set ups showed up. In fact, I was net positive on the account. Fear of loss I would imagine was the driving factor in the inconsistency. By trying to become a prop trader my risk is set which seems to help take some of the fear out of the equation. I still find myself second guessing at times and I really have a hard time taking additional trades if I am up for the day. I had a few times in my personal account when I first got into trading futures that I would be up around 2k and by the end of the day lose it all and sometimes even some extra.

3. I am taking a One up evaluation right now as well. It's really no more difficult to do 2 or possibly 3 at the same time since I enter with pending orders anyway. I am on day 6 with one up and currently profitable all 6. I am a little concerned about One up right now. For some reason nobody's analytics are working and they don't seem to be in any hurry to fix it. This gives me the feeling that something is going on behind the scenes that is a bit shady. If I don't finish it by the end of the 30 day subscription I will end it there and not renew. I can think of no reason the analytics would just stop working for weeks now (according to other participants) without any indication that they will be back up any time soon.

4. I want to do a Top Step combine as well. The thing I don't like about them is how the combine is set up. They are basically requiring you to complete 2 combines where you need to make 6% growth. One for 5 days minimum and one for 10 days minimum. Why not just do a 15 day single where you are expected to follow the rules like a funded trader. I think I want to do there's just to give me a chance to earn my money back that I spent a year or so ago. LOL! I will decide on it over the weekend.

5. The house is still a wreck. The insurance was a bit slow but work should begin by next week and only take a few days to complete. Almost 15k in repairs between the drying out and the rebuilding. Glad I had insurance.

So, what have I been up to lately? Got funded by One Up. Only took me a week to blow it. Complete absolute stupid trading will do that. There is some shady stuff going on at One up. Not sure if they are about to go under or are just going through some tough times. Support went from being pretty good to almost non-existent. Analytics haven't worked all year and they keep giving a canned response when you ask about them. That's why I didn't go back and just try to re-qualify at One Up. Working on a Top Step combine right now. Just finishing up day 4 of step 1. Top step is one of the toughest to pass in my opinion. I have also opened my personal account back up and started with just $550. At this point I have built it to 787.12. This was done over about a 2 week period trading micro's. Which is nice.

My house is all back in order and all of the repairs have been done from the water damage. Looks nice and all the contractors did a great job.

Going to try and push hard to finish step one on Top Step. Would like to finish by close of day tomorrow. I will start posting my trades as they happen. I need something to do that takes my focus away from micro managing the trades. Posting here I think will help with that.

I hope everyone is doing well in these strange times we live in now.

So, what have I been up to lately? Got funded by One Up. Only took me a week to blow it. Complete absolute stupid trading will do that. There is some shady stuff going on at One up. Not sure if they are about to go under or are just going through some tough times. Support went from being pretty good to almost non-existent. Analytics haven't worked all year and they keep giving a canned response when you ask about them. That's why I didn't go back and just try to re-qualify at One Up. Working on a Top Step combine right now. Just finishing up day 4 of step 1. Top step is one of the toughest to pass in my opinion. I have also opened my personal account back up and started with just $550. At this point I have built it to 787.12. This was done over about a 2 week period trading micro's. Which is nice.



My house is all back in order and all of the repairs have been done from the water damage. Looks nice and all the contractors did a great job.



Going to try and push hard to finish step one on Top Step. Would like to finish by close of day tomorrow. I will start posting my trades as they happen. I need something to do that takes my focus away from micro managing the trades. Posting here I think will help with that.



I hope everyone is doing well in these strange times we live in now.



Have you looked at getting funded with LeeLoo?
