Onisowo Trading Journal

I have decided to switch to trading currency on the futures exchange(s) rather than the spot market. The trading platform I have decided to use is Sierra Chart. I will be focusing on the emicro currencies.
The reason for the decision is twofold; volume analysis tools are not included with MT5 and futures exchanges are regulated. So with that being said, any loss is entirely on me....there is no way to blame others.
Since at this moment I am still a wage earner and I have not funded my live account yet, you will see trades made before I get to work or after I return home..........but the ultimate goal is to trade the NY session and flatten everything by 3pm EST.

I look forward to all constructive criticisms and advices....

setting up my toolbox

Well, since I did not have to work today I jumped right on to the charts.
For my strategy this is what I have found to work best for me thus far:
Renko, Fractals, Parobolic SAR, Volume by price histogram, and trend lines.
Current bid/ask and current price is also on the chart as well.

I had a thought; I learned yesterday that as far as currencies are concerned that the US Dollar is the most manipulated currency by the banks (that explains the divergence of news reports and price action while news trading). With that being said I am leaning AWAY from currencies and strongly considering indexes, emicro gold, emini crude light and emini natural gas. But for now I am just fine tuning my platform so that I can address the next step.........what instuments I will settle on and their tick values.

So this evening while studying the available trading platforms I have run across the CQG M platforms. There are no platforms fees and there are desktop and mobile platforms......its very intuitive and offers the basics that I need. Volume profile will have to be used on another platform (Sierra charts).......the convenience and having a backup platform in case of an emergency is a must for me.....
Also I have finally committed to my instruments of choice.......they will be the emicro currency futures contracts....YM and the small sized contracts for oil and gold.......
My next step is to shorten my trading platform learning curve a bit more and to continue to study to finer points of my indicators of choice.......and to get more familiar with heiken ashi candles.....
I expect to fund my account after my tax return is complete........

New day

So last night I did some reading on heiken ashi candles. The major takeaway for me is to wait for reversal signals before considering placing a trade. By the way......CQG M is a very fast platform with excellent execution (at least on demo).

I am on my way to work right now......so my major focus for the next few hours is to NOT let my trading thoughts/ideas get in the way of the job I have to do. Staying focused on the task at hand .......

Starting a new trading week.....order placed before bed last night......I must say, the fact that emicro currencies don't move as violently as often as spot forex is a relief for me......wonderful!
The red horizontal line is a stoploss.
It would be nice if I could see bid/ask delta directly on the chart with this platform.....

This week I will only trade currencies....

I protected more profit......usually I would place an additional order in the direction of the market....but for me that would be overtrading.....

So......I am on lunch break right now (I currently am employed in the telecom business) and have decided to protect a bit more profit.
Trading on a regulated exchange affords me the ability of having closer stops with no worries about being stopped out due to manipulations.......If this trade were made with a spot forex broker I am confident (due to my experience) that this adjustment would have been hunted......
I much prefer trading with USA futures exchanges.......

The ONLY spot forex broker I would EVER trade with is Oanda. They allow trading one unit at a time....
