You are smart man you will figure it out.

If I where you. Work, commute to work and back + lunch break takes appox 9-10 hours. Its biggest part of our life. I will go with baby steps from hating less work to neutral feelings about work. I change my mindset about work. It puts roof over my head and food on table. I can save money to open my training account ( my dream job ). I can help people, if not directly then final customer get value out what I am producing.

I like book Principles by Ray Dalio.

In order to have the best life possible you have to :
1) know what is the best decision are and
2) have the courage to make them.


Maybe you even need to change your job if hate is too strong.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm less emotional after having the night to calm down. It's not
The job, but more me. The frustration level with trading is over the top. Bouncing from one approach to another thinking the other will be the one. Thanks for the book suggestion.

Everybody is struggling you are not alone,you are just the one who admits it. Noone is going to sell you his edge if he has one,opening threads where you talk about your emotions with other newbies is not going to help you.

In order to be able to predict the market partially at least,you will have to work at least 10000 hours. Except if you are lucky to find a good mentor. Qualified mentors are not mentoring so there are no odds for that.
Only losers sell courses,as long there are suckers to buy them

So you seem to know a lot, but not willing to share anything.

The only lagging indicators on the charts i posted are moving averages. Yeah, they should go. The volume profile and the orderflow are not. Here's today. Some good, some not so good and some ugly.
VP110212


NQ 1 min 110212


My bad. there is the PPO and the DMI ADX. those should go as well.

I'd like to see some price volume examples. But think this is a complicated methodology even though it may be the best. If we are talking bar by bar analysis with volume then I don't know if that is something I can master.

You can simplify more. I have only price.
Long double bottom ( or TST test the level ) , target was bit before HOD. As it was also ALL TIME HIGH I got bit more with slippage.

For me this is simplest form of trading https://yourtradingcoach.com/

The key to gain money from markets is to lower your expectations, if you accept that, even a simple moving average can give you money. If your mentality is'' i will become a pro'' then you will continue to pursue the ''dream'' where you either get rich or bankrupt.
The best money managers gain 16% per year with 3% drowdown.

Do you have some charts you can share?

No i dont, i am not here to do seminars,but i believe the key to predict a market is mostly interpretation of volume,now whether you use indicators or not is not so important;
As a general rule people who use price action are not in the top,they are intermediate

I didn't ask for a seminar. I appreciate your comments, but charts tell the story, not your words. I see you haven't joined the forum, so what are you here for? If you want to help, help, but if you think you have some secret sauce that if you divulge it that some how it will cease to work, then you're mistaken.

.. those should go as well.

I keep 3 per chart at the max, so it forces me to be more selective. Someone gave me this piece of advice "find something repeatable and just keep trading it", HTH.

Ι have helped you enough i believe,do you want me to tell you what indicators to use?
What methods to use. How to become consistent. Why should i do that . ( If i know of course,i am not making any claims,its forbidden anyway in the forum. )
You have paid money on courses, why you believe someone in a forum will give you something for free.

You made some good points, but help? No.

This forum is about sharing and helping. If you don't want to do that then why are you here?
