Friday, March 11th, 2011 - Only had the ATS on CL for the pre-lunch RTH period today, no trades. I'm going to revise my testing after I fix my intrabar issues this weekend. Until then, it's temporarily suspended.

Monday, March 14, 2011 - I didn't get my weekend homework done, so I'm still suspending my ATS until then. I ran it in SIM for fun though. Today would have been my first winning day on TF. It didn't take a 24 tick winner in the morning because I set it up wrong, so it actually should have made more than it did.

All SIM results...

6E: no trades
CL: -30 ticks
ES: +3 ticks
TF: +45 ticks (3 trades: +14, +15, +16 ticks)

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011 - Didn't run the bots, forgot to set them up the night before. After a superficial review it looked like it would have been a down day.

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011 - Another losing day. Glad I banked my profits from last week and suspended this until I get some time to revisit my testing. ES didn't take any trades for some reason, maybe I didn't set it up right, missed a winner.

6E: +28 ticks
CL: -58 ticks (2 trades: -3, -55)
ES: no trades
TF: -49 ticks (6 trades, don't want to count the ticks of each trade!)

Sorry friends, I've really been busy lately, no time for trading or ATS improvements.

I have been researching an end-of-day stock strategy that I came up with. It's 100% fundamental, not technical, the pattern repeats over and over again for many stocks. I've been visually back-testing this for a while and started forward testing it this week, so far, making 1% or more a day, depending on 1 or 2 day variations. Looking to execute soon with real money. Will probably execute this on Lightspeed or some other low-commission per-share execution platform.

Anatomy of a trade (SIM)

Took a SIM trade towards the end of the morning on 6E, came 1 tick from stopping me out then turned around for a winner.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
