Order Flow Trading on the ZF/ZN/ZB
  1. I have traded on and off for the last 20 years, no, I am not one of the traders Peter Davies speaks about in some of his videos though it is probably true for me also.
  2. Therefore, from (1) you can correctly assume I am no bloody good and definitely not consistently profitable.
  3. I will freely admit that I have hopped around from instrument to instrument, method to method, guru to guru like a cat on a hot tin roof.
  4. I have traded stocks, futures, options, and crypto (poorly)
  5. I have a small account.
  6. I am either a sucker for punishment, dumb, or stubborn (most probably all three).

Why enter the challenge?
  1. I want to be held responsible for my trading.
  2. A long time ago I worked in an investment bank and would go up to the currency trading floor. The traders did not have any charts, just order book data. I have failed over time to be able to trade successfully, from the technical charts, so when I found "No BS Trading," and Jigsaw I felt I had returned to the currency desks. (If I am not allowed to mention products, please let me know and I will edit accordingly, I probably missed the rules.
  3. I like everyone else would like to win, I have the basic Jigsaw Daytradr package, and I would like the sexier version plus access to the Journalytix software that I cannot as of yet afford.

Trading Style: Chaos, I reckon if I don't know what I am doing then the guys who always hit my stops won't be able to do that!
  • Account size will be $5k with TradeStation.
  • Order flow reading off Jigsaw Daytradr (maybe the odd peek at the charts)
  • One lot trading of the ZF/ZN/ZB, primarily the ZN/ZB - I like the financials don't get whipped around as much.
  • I tend to have an emergency breaker of 5 ticks on the ZB and 10 on the ZN - so max loss per trade should be $156 odd.
  • Taking Profit will be purely from looking at the order flow.
  • 3 strikes and I am finished for the day.
  • I have attached a text file with some more malleable rules


Issues:
  1. I have many but related to trading it was trying to get huge moves, only to find the price to come flying back to me where I panicked and move my stop to try and protect, and I am sure most of you know how the rest of that story goes ...
  2. I probably choke the trade-off early because it is a small account and I am defending constantly.

Will I be successful?

I don't know, I think I will learn from the challenge.

Goals?

To trade profitably and consistently if that is achievable for me. I am not looking to make millions, to be honest, don't get me wrong I wouldn't turn it down. But, I'd be happy knowing that I could generate income that may be enough to let me retire early.

Also, I'd like to make enough money between May 2021 and May 2022 to allow me to buy better hardware, software packages like Journalytix, maybe the odd guru course on some exotic options trading. Who knows?

Looking for to it and Best of Luck to Everyone

I need to add some posts here to share my link, I wasnít going to include this trade today as it occurred due to the NFP numbers. I didnít enter before the news broke so I watched it sky rocket two points. I faded it for $1200 on the way down. Turns off my pc and didnít trade again

I was glad I had the discipline to sit on my hands and not trade again. Previously I would have traded again and invariably gave a lot back and then revenge traded

It is difficult to come up with posts that are useful. At some point I would like to add the bund/boba/schatz to instruments I trade

Other instruments I would like to trade would be the Ags and Softs, but they will need to wait awhile until I get a handle on being consistent on the bonds

Poor Monday Trading

So today I took four trades in the ZBM21, and I had 3 losers and one scratch. I have screen-shots of the 2 - 4 trades. Each hit my emergency stop, so without comms/fees that is a loss of 468.75 (or 15 ticks).
  1. The first trade I took ahead of the market open on low volume, so another rule will need to be added to my trading plan.
  2. The second trade I took because of strong buying going in to test the session's high. The market started chopping back and forth from approx. 157 30/32 and 158 03/32.
  3. The third trade was this time selling into the low of the range. The market started chopping back and headed back to the top of the range.
  4. The last trade was a revenge trade and broke my three strike rule, so it was a bad trade that at one point had a $250 profit for me. However, because I am a 1 lot trader, I tightened my emergency stop to scratch and tried to hold the trade for a larger gain. The plan was to follow a stop up behind the grinding market. However, the market came off the highs and headed lower.
  5. There I gave up what could have been a $250 profit to offset against my previous poorer trades. Very disappointed with myself today and the way I traded.

Screenshots are 2nd - 4th trades from top to bottom

Shut down trading until tomorrow morning's open.

Yes, I am trying to learn his set-ups, it is tricky and I know it will take me a while to learn them and even loo=nger to master. But I will persevere. Glad to hear I have a comrade in arms.
