Such bad luck today ...
My system generated 8 entry signals today, 3 losing trades and 5 winning trades.

However i am still taking care of my sick son so i couldn't take all the signals today.
I entered in to 2 trades and you guessed it, those 2 where the biggest 2 of the 3 losing trades ...

Seriously very disappointed in my trading results from start to date, i should have performed much better.
I am going to work on some kind of alert when my system generates an entry signal.

Down 457,76$ for today, it looks like markets are slowing down so probably no more trades for me today.

1 more trade which brings me back to my initial starting balance of 25,000$.
I really really need to get my concentration on point and some kind of an alert would be really helpful.
First week of trading without any profit while the system generated so many entry's

No trades for me today, i have been working on some other stuff.

I have created some kind of an alert when the system generates a potential entry signal and also a reminder alert to keep checking the charts every now and then.

Back at it tomorrow with my concentration at 100% from now on!

My system did generate a late long entry on GC yesterday based on the 1 hour chart.

Entry was at 1233.5 and i took my profit at 1239.0 at a 1:1 risk/reward for a 550$ profit.
Instead of the usual 2 contracts i took this trade with just 1 contract because the stop would have been over a 1000$.

Balance now is at 25552,36$.

2 more trades today.

1 long NG from 3.23300, first target at 3.24500 and trailing stop triggered at 3.24100, total profit 200$.
1 short CL but because i have noticed some support just below my entry and i had to leave my desk i have decided to close the trade at break even.

So, done for today with a total profit of 732,24$ and the balance at 25739,04$.

gauntlet = drawdown 2500, target 2500, 30 days, $349, split 80-20
Oneup = 2500, 3000, 15 days, $120, 100% first $5000

Why you choose gauntlet?

Oneup = 2500, 3000, 15 days, $120, 100% first $5000

Why you choose gauntlet?

Gauntlet = 2500$ draw down, however not trailing by open positions like OneUp, draw down is set at 22500$.
60 days to reach the 2500$ target, 1 time 349$ payment, more professional environment, more opportunities to seriously scale up the funded account once funded and good returns, Helios is a real prop firm.

OneUp = 2500$ trailing stop (open profit) and 3000$ target, minimum 15 days but you need to pay every month if you do not finish it in 1 month, the account you are talking about is 150$/month, maximum 6 contracts, once funded you need to have a positive balance after 15 days and every 15 days thereafter for the first 90 days, no overnight trading.

So, the reasons i choose the Gaunlet are: Opportunities to scale up if the returns are good, overnight trading allowed, no trailing draw down, no need to be positive after X days.

The trailing draw down is what killed me each time at OneUp, the trailing draw down in combination with the positive after 15 days (funded account) just didn't work for me. The Gauntlet is much more relaxed, no pressure, 60 day's for 2500$, no hidden rules.

Ps, i started the Gauntlet before there was a 2500$ draw down rule

Just 1 trade today.

I had 1 more signal but the stop would have been to far to trade 2 contracts.
By the time i placed my 1 contract order the market already moved in the direction where my TP would have been and never went back to the entry price ..

1 short on CL, entry at 66.79, both contracts closed at 66.59, not according to the plan but i had to leave my desk to pick up my son from school so i decided to take the profit there.

Not an ideal week, missed a few nice trades.
With the new alerts i have created my concentration should increase and number of missed trades should decrease a lot!

My system did not generate any useful signals today.
I had 2 signals, however the stop would have been to far to justify the risk.
