Getting closer


Since I will be trading live soon I am getting my platform prepared. I have been using Sierracharts for about 3 months now. I like the platform alot, but there is one indicator that is not available to that platform. Since I depend on this indicator for entries and analysis I will be switching to NinjaTrader 7. The standard deviation levels indicator combined with marketprofile should give me the edge I need.
Using interactive Brokers seems to give me favorable trading conditions with my platform of choice.
Also; with Brexit decision(s) coming this week and me not rushing to trade is showing growth on my part psychologically. I feel good about my progression thus far.

Hi Onisowo,

I'm enjoying reading your thread and analyzing the charts you posted. Would you say that your approach to setting entries and exits is a discretionary one or is it mechanical?

Best of luck to you in this new year of trading.

Discretion and Mechanical

I must admit; I don't fully understand what discretionary trading means. I have not begun to explore algorithmic trading as of yet...........I trade manually for now; and for now I monitor all trades via manually trading stops.

I have decided not to use IB with NT7........its slows my computer down alot

That indicator that I mentioned awhile ago is displayed on this chart. Its very accurate by the way. If I could switch to Sierra Charts with that indicator it would be my edge.

Anyhow, im just setting up my toolbox and making final decisions on back-end stuff like who my broker will be; who my FCM will be, what platform to use, and the cost involved.

Two things I fully understand.......each renko box must cover the commission for one round trip.......

the only thing missing is volatility and volume representation.....levels and trend are covered......

That's the apex deviation indicator right?

There are ways to calculate these levels yourself and then plot them on Sierra charts.

That's what I do.

Message me if you want help with it.

Todays Effort


Looks like I made a decent trade today. My charts are self explanatory (or at least I hope). I am considering adding fractals (which on second thought probably not); and an oscillator to help me get a big picture entry. One thing I must keep in mind; if I use NT7 for live trading, for now I must mark my stops so that I make keep track of where I am in relation to profit/loss. I will be using the free license for now.

I like how slow the currency futures exchange moves for the instruments I am trading. It enables me to think clearer.

The deviation indicator is only showing settlement and deviations 1, 2, and 3. Because of the markets I am using them on that is all I need.
