4/ 6J 2B Short 1 Stop out -9 ticks
5/ CL 34B Short 1 contract, also double top going down. However strong divergence and reversed .. Stop out for a loss at 7 ticks
- WAIT -
6/ 6A T2/34B Short 1 contract, stop out for a loss T -6 ticks

The Good: A few winners

Tuesday Mar 6th
Busy day again, arrived home at 9pm. Open up trading app and start looking at ES, CL and several other markets.

1/ 9:09pm ES T10 trigger to go short .. Stop out for a loss of 6 ticks. GOOD SET-UP & GOOD TRADE.
2/ 9:41pm CL 2B (Ema bounce on entry & higher timeframe chart) .. Trailing stop per updated ATM strategy, Stopped for a small winner at + 3 ticks
3/ 10:13pm 6A 34B 1c short .. Target is S3 pivot. Slowwwww .. Trailing stop, Stopped for a small winner at + 3 ticks.
NOTE: The trailing stop is ok for 1st step, but is too tight for second step. Try changing from 2 to 3 ticks.


The good: basically B/E day except minor commission fees. 2 small wins, 1 loss. Better than a large red day
The Bad: Trailing stop on ATM is too tight, enlarge it by 1-2 ticks.
The ugly: nada


RESULTS : Total 3 trades; 1 losers, 2 winners.
Daily results after commissions = - $19 NET

Hump day.


all I see is red.

Wednesday Feb 27th
No intro comments. Get in the game !

1/ ES 2B 1 contract short. .. Touch +5 was at +4 for a while. Move SL to BE, Stop out for a loss at -1 ticks (good trade)
2/ ES 34B 1 contract long . Failed 8 ticks loss (good trade)
- WAIT
3/ 6A 200 Ema overshoot with divergence. Mistake: Did not wait for the super scalper white candle (3rd close) and ATR to flip. This is a must on counter trend trades. Stop at a loss 5 ticks
4/ CL 34B? T7 / BTF 1 contract long .. Good set-up, long term target is R1 pivot. Getting late set and forget. Didnt make it reversed and Stop out for a loss at 5 ticks

The good: Good set-up, but bad stats.
The Bad: Didnt follow my rule on trade 3 (did not wait for 3rd candle to close)
The ugly:


RESULTS : Total 4 trades; 4 losers DAMN.
Daily results after commissions = - $220

Thursday - March 7

Thursday Mar 7

Around 7pm start looking at the markets.

1/ CL 34B short 1 contract. Getting some positive ticks, tried to scalp about 4-5 ticks, ended up with a winner at +2 ticks. (My acct balance seems correct but my trade performance o NT8 is wacky. Ive notice that before .. weird).
2/ CL 34B short 1 contract, stopped out for a loser at 7 ticks
3/ CL 2B (ema bounce on 2 timeframes) short 1 contract. Target 8 ticks, touch 6, moved my stop to B/E. Scratch at -1 ticks
4/ CL 34B short, short 1 contract. ST target 56.20; LT target R1 pivot. Stopped for a loser at 6 ticks
5/ CL 2B/34B short 1 contract, winner at + 5 ticks
6/ 6J Market is topping, getting divergence on 2 timeframes so lets try a counter trend trade, target is 89ema. Keeping a tight stop, went to about +3 ticks. Very slow. Small winner at +1 tick.


The Good: some decent charts & triggers but didnt get the bounces.
The Bad: nada
The Ugly: nada

Trades: 6 trade, 3 wins, 1 scratch, 2 loss.
Net results: - $ 93

Friday March 8

No trading on Friday.

Actually even though every day was red, 3 of the days was less than -100 (incl commissions), and total loss for the week was -582 so it is my best week.

Will be compiling stats later today of tomorrow but I had issues with trade performance feature on NT8 Thursday so it might be off a bit.

Wondering if I can rename and move this thread ? Or maybe I need to start a new one.

IIRC the moderators say the best way to accomplish this sort of thing is to report one of your posts and request it there.
