This could be a mistake
Last December I was googling “Unirenko” and came upon the thread here at Futures IO. Discovered I’ve been with this site for about 1300 days and have not replied or posted anything. Other things caught my attention including stuff in the elite section. Had no choice but become an elite, whatever that means.
As an indicator junkie downloaded some and then found @fattails’ LizardIndicators. His session VWAPs and session pivots are a revelation.
Read @Big_Mike’s sticky about trade journals & started looking into others’ journals. And here I’m about to create some sort of journal, which could be a mistake. I’m leery about this thing taking too much of my time as words don’t come easily. But as they say, try anything once— see how it goes. If if I don’t like it after two weeks or 2 months then stop.
I post videos of my trades on Instagram
http://www.instagram.com/tiglathtrading
and YouTube/tiglath trading
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYaDrN8zjM9wlDiD6qNPH2A
Not posted are the trades where I blow up my sim account several times.
Current situation: paper trading for too many years. Preferred reality: trading live making real money consistently. The other day accidentally tapped the topsteptrader submit request button. I could probably use some grounding on respecting parameters.

Most of the traders here are friendly and won't criticize you for your trading.

Many of them have blown up accounts so posting them not only will help others to not make the same mistake but will help you to get past them.
You probably should post links to the videos here using the red arrow

Pullback to VWAP

Thanks for the tip!
Letís see how this works.
My trade today long NQ. I was hoping the daily VWAP would become support & it did, right on the money. Paper money, lol.

Somebody else asked the same thing recently and Mike submitted an interesting post and link explaining the name.

Thank you. Itís just a word, a name. What matters is the content, the purpose, what it means to the creator of the label.
