Took one trade today, with a mean reversion setup. Good entry but trade exit didn't go so well. I need to concentrate on this. Things should be easier when I am able to trade multiple contracts again.

im not sure why you dont just trade the moving average. sounds like u dont make many trades. scalpers trade a lot. dont believe the garbage about ma are latent. so are quotes being late us also what makes price action work. ma are a cumulation of all actions of price averaged.

I will look into trading the MA.


It has become obvious to me that it's a bad idea for me to sit in front of a screen and make multiple trades per day. I still get exited, make bad, emotional decisions. And I am 6 months into trading (basically as a scalper) and I am not successful. When I use this term, I mean that I'm not doing the wrong things, for the wrong reasons. And sometimes I even *know* I'm doing the wrong thing in the moment, but there is some impulse to just do it anyways because there is some chance it would work out.


I think the change I need to make is to trade higher time frame setups. Find the right setup, set a target and stoploss, and basically turn off the screen and walk away. I will have to tighten my game up in a few operational areas, but it's doable.

I don't exactly know what took me so long to figure this out, but I am now going to trade with a daily, weekly, and monthly chart open.


Just a thought,

Have you tried putting a chart together with the Daily, Weekly & Monthly all on one chart?
It can help you see a lot of information in one spot.

ES Daily, Weekly, Monthly 2020-09-18_6-40-ET


Looking at this ES chart this morning it looks like they are going to finish this week "Inside" the prior week's range = consolidation / pause.

If they can't hold price above the Globex Open there @ 3345.00 or the Week Open @ 3340.00 we could see this continue lower today - "IMO"


ES Day, Week, Month with 5 Minute in 60 Minute 2020-09-18_6-55-ET


Here's the same idea with the Daily, Weekly, Monthly beside a 5 minute candlestick inside a 60 minute candle.
I like the "granularity" of the smaller timeframes inside the larger timeframes.

Trade well, and best of luck
