Daily comment: After strange O/N session I don`t will be trade today! That is not my game!

My trading process:
Like I wrote in my last post for journal 2019 my trading process consists of three parts and today I want write about first one.


Trading idea (part 1):
Main task for this part of my trading process , it find instrument where buyers or sellers have strong power momentum.
Rules:
1. If price stay in range more then three days, that means for me don`t touch it. Wait and look how I can use "GAP and GO" strategy.

2. Second day in play. This is famous strategy in stocks after same strong report or news. In futures can be same! Wait strong buyers/sellers 1-st day and after this day try to find trade in same direction! If first day it reverse day, during second day I can hold position for 30-50 ticks (look ATR, delta, volume).


Example:Today great example on Natural Gas. Price stay in range 2,100-2,180 more then three days! That means don`t touch NG until price go out from this range.

Pre market plan:
CL: "Sh.Close VWAP" LIS 58,70
Also I have idea about NQ, but market situation not good. May be before market open situation will be clear.

Market recap
Daily comment: I made one scalp trade before US market open. Close because think what usually if price around day high/low after open market can show impulse up and made new high. But price continue go down and don`t give me chance take one more trade.

Pre market plan
NQ: "GAP and GO". This is 50/50 idea and don`t strong idea, but yesterday I see how work sellers and today I think we can see new low under 9040. I will be look to sell around 9070 or after market accept new low.

Additional info about Trade Idea:
Yesterday I see good support from buyers in GC. And today price test yday high and fly away! Today I see same situation on 6E. Name this is situation "Delta divergence".
Price hold above average daily price, BUT delta is negative. If price stay above VWAP today, tomorrow I will be look to buy momentum in 6E.


Market recap
Daily comment: Uhhhh. That was stupid day which start with stupid pre market plan! But it good lesson for me (but very expensive). I MUST have Trade Idea patterns like for Strategy and Order Flow. I did this error second time! I try to trade NOT strong idea! Also I`m understand what rules about MM, RM work good only when you have strong idea+ strong strategy! I`m understand this lesson!

Pre market plan:
6E: New strategy. Yday was good support day with delta divergence. Like in post before. I would be buy 6E, but I don`t know exactly name and rule for this strategy, because price open in yday range and name for this situation I don`t know.

Market recap:
Daily comment: Next lose day! But this is normal day! My RM is work. Because I`am understand what I wait and what I do. No problem, today Risk ON day on news about deal. But I must work better about my strategy.

Daily comment:
I`m don`t trade today. Because two lose day, that means I do something wrong! I must work much much better with my Trade Idea. Also before start trade I must exactly understand where will my active price area where I will be enter to trade.

Trade Idea patterns:
1. Strong buy /sell day:

Rules:
- Price must be go in one direction in step by step mode.
- VWAP can be support with small depth.
- Lower low and Higher height rule!
- Price must be close above/under "First hour height/low"

2. Crazy buy or sell off days:

Rules:
- Price open above/under VWAP.
- During session price does not touch VWAP.
- Price move with small range area and continue move in main direction.

3. Delta divergence days:

Rules:
- Price stay in range
- Total daily delta show divergence with price
- VWAP looks like support/resistance area

Additional things: I must work about completely Trading system. I must look which strategy work better with Trade Idea. That means I must have strong system Trade Idea + Strategy.

Description: After trading when I try to trade Euro, I don`t has clear rules for this trades! Because I have strategy "Gap and GO", but in this strategy main rule what price must open above yday high. But many times when price open in yday range, test same price area (find buyers) and continue go higher. Now I`m prepare new strategy "Test and GO".

"Test and GO" strategy

Rules:
1. Before trading I must prepare 1-2 Buy/Sell area !
2. Don`t touch bellow/above yday average price (average price can be VWAP or 50% Fibo)
3. If price go bellow/above yday range that means I can be wrong and buyers/sellers don`t have enough power. I must cancel my idea.

IMPORTANT!
BEFORE EACH TRADING SESSION I MUST WRITE:
"TRADE IDEA" pattern + Strategy.

Plan your trade and trade your plan

My main task: Found instrument which have strong positive or negative momentum.
Comment: For understand it I use previous day like indicator with Daily pattern. During this time I see how price go UP with good support, BUT at the end of day delta negative or very strong positive. I look it and test it. And now I`m add additional rule for "Strong sell/buy" day.

Rule: For this day delta must be average!!

Example:

Description: If price go UP delta must be also positive (not negative like it was today in NG: Friday was looks day with support BUT delta of this day was negative), BUT it must be avarage delta! If delta is too high that also not good.

During when I don`t see same good and strong idea to trade I think how I can do better my trading journal. I`m completely change conception of my dashboard! After I do this I see my main 3 mistake!



My 3 main mistake:
1. My Win Ratio not good! I think this is mistake base not on one my erorr This complex of errors like Monday, trade Index`s, my Pre market plan Scenario with buy sell area! I must work with it step by step.
1. Monday: Often I try to trade idea based on previous week. That stat show me what this is wrong idea and must change my conception for trades in Monday!
2. Index`s and NQ! Before I start trade strategy I trade NQ every day with same scenario. But I`m hold position not more then 5 min. Now I change my conception of trading and now I think NQ for me not good! Now I will be trade ES instead NQ. I must be careful with it.

Also I`m prepare good dashboard for weekly and monthly report of my trading! Now I start do it every weekend.

Today I don`t have any strong idea. Last week was slow motion style trading ( only 2 trades). I`m don`t wrote weekly report because no material for it.
Idea how I can be better:
Based on my stat Monday it worst day in my trading stat! That means I`m very often wrong with side. Because my plan based on last Friday (week) and now I want understand how I can be better in start of week (today also like Monday). I made price stat for Monday and how ES follow for traders form Europe.
Result:

Description: I have four scenario for US session, for me was interest traders look what was during O/N session and how they work with this data! Ehh this is picture completely random. For US traders does not meter completely what was during O/N session - this result of my price stat!

Monday Pre market time
Comment: Market open with huge gap down. This is gap base on virus info from different point of world. I don`t like this type of open at Monday! I see too much times when US trade show reverse direction. I don`t trade today, only look!

Weekly report



Weekly report:
This week was good and I work in my low volatility temp! But I see two errors where I can be better:
1. I try take two trades on GC, that was Short trades! This is wrong! I must trade ONLY strong idea! GC completely under buyers control. Short trades this is stupid trades! I was lucky close this trades too fast with small profit! But in future it can be correct lose! Don`t play with it!
2. In CL I take perfect trades! But my profit area was wrong! All my trades can give me my correct profit. I take good enter position, BUT wrong exit! I must work about this question too!

Pre market time
Comment: Yday US traders accept this down gap and continue sell. For me that means market start correction period after earnings season.
Trade ideas:
ES/YM: "Test and GO". ES sell 3250-3260.
CL: "Test and GO" Sell 51,80-52,00.

Market recap
Daily comment: Ideas was very good. But market don`t give good enter. I try to jump to CL with one lot, I get what I must get) Lose) I`m understand , what it was too risky and insert small stop.

Pre market time
Comment: Yday was good sell off day on CL and Index`s. Today I will be bet on Index`s continue lower.
Trade idea:
6E "Close VWAP". Buy 108790- 108800.
About Index`s idea will be later.
ES: Two scenario:
1. "Close VWAP" Sell 3150-3160 LIS 3160
2. "PB to Average" Sell 3180-3190. LIS 3190

Market recap
Daily comment: That was interest and little bit volatility trading day. My idea about 6E and ES works perfect! BUT! Wow I don`t know before what ES is too expensive. 3$=300$ (on 2 contract). I`m finish my day on green area, last trades on ES was perfect, I can hold position much more time, but I`m reverse my account from red to green and close position! This is right way!

About yday:
Yday was no trade! Because no PB to my sell area. Market show PB only in second part of day, it for me always 50/50 situation. Also this PB was after strong sell momentum. This is not my game.

Pre market plan:
Comment: Yday was strong sell day on all market. Important thing for what after strong PB to new day high, market find sellers and they show new low on ES and send back to low area in CL.
CL "GAP and GO" Sell 45,80 -46,00. LIS Yday close.
ES "GAP and GO" Sell 2940-2950. LIS O/N high.
Also interest Euro to buy, but yday was strong divergence price/delta. I don`t like it.

This is next my weekly report with my trades and ideas.



Description: That was extreme volatility week! That is not my market! I don`t like this movement. I trade ONLY pull back! One of important what was in this week it trade in ES. First my trade I take 2 lots with stop 3$, wow I don`t think before what ES is so expensive. No any interest moment during this week! I must trade my strategy and my trading style! No more no less.

Market view idea:

Description: Friday low this is very important low for the market at this moment. Because market show 50% pull back from high. This is name for this situation "Half back". I think this is end of strong volatility period and now we will be in range area. If price continue go down and show resistance area under Friday Low that signal for me what market move to correction with temporary down trend.

Pre market plan
Comment: Based on my market view from "Weekly report". I will be buy today ES and look to CL also.
ES "Test and GO" Buy 2920-2930. LIS Friday Low
CL "Test and GO" Buy 45,20-45,30 LIS 45,00

Market recap
Daily comment: My idea `s was very good! ES and CL go higher! But without me. I see good buyers momentum in ES, but price move too fast and I don`t has chance to take a trade. In CL next picture:

Description: I`m wait false breakout this range area and take LONG trade around 45,50-55. But price go higher without re-test. No problem, tomorrow will be new day with new idea`s.

Trading result:
NO trades!

Pre market time
GC: "Sh. Close VWAP" Sell around 1606. LIS O/N high.
NG: "GAP and GO" Buy around 1770. LIS 1755

Market recap
Daily comment: That was good day, but with two errors. First: I try to short during pre market time CL! But I don`t have idea to do it! This is WRONG! Second: Trade in NG has excellent enter position! I see what buyers have strong power, BUT I don`t wait my profit and close too early! This is also wrong! I must work with my profit area too.

Pre market time
Comment: Yday was interest day and today I have two main idea (6E, NG). Also have idea to find short in ES. But I don`t have time to do it.
NG: "Test and GO" Buy 1770-1785
6E: "Lg. Close VWAP" Buy around 1,11250

Market recap
Daily comment: All my idea`s work good! I trade 6E. I take good enter by OrderFlow with good stop, but price hit my stop and go up. Also one thing! Before I never trade GC during FOMC days. And after trades today I think I must do it same with 6E.

Weekly report
Comment: That was next huge volatility week. At Thursday and Friday, I`don`t has trade! This not my market! But I`m understand next things:
- I must build one strategy for volatility market and prepare for it few rules.
- I must work with profit target area and my profit. Perfect example was with NG on this week. I take perfect trade, but close too early (I take 120$, but can take my profit 400$). This is important!

My idea`s what I can do better
I`m does not trade last week and may be next week, because volatility too high (VIX on 2008-2009 level`s). I do another job, and during this time I think what I do wrong and what I can do better.

What I do well:
1. I`m build my plan each day and trade it plan! That is perfect! That was difficult job.
2. I`m build good scenario`s for enter position!
3. I`m work about different strategy with different rules! I`m understand, how I must build my strategy.
4. I`m understand what RM and MM does not work without good preparation during pre-market time and good plan for the day.

What I can do better:
1. Pre-market time! This is not so good, time to time!
2. I must work about my EXIT strategy! That is missing part in my trading! I`m always exit early then I must!

For this time, this is two things more than enough! I must work about this questions!
