My NQ Trading Journal

Hi Traders!

Basically, the main reason of me starting this Journal is to become a better trader. Right now I am in that point where I'm trying to develope my trading edge. I know my MM rules, I know my psichology problems and I believe that I know what and when to trade.

Trading rules:
I trade only NQ
Max Loss: 5 points (if the risk is higher then i don't take the trade)
Max Loss for the day: 200$. If I get stopped 2 trades in a row for 10 point I turn off my PC and go somewhere else..

Analysis:
Each day I analyse HSI, DAX, FTSE, SPX, DJI, NDX, Bonds, EUR/USD, Gold, Soybean, Sugar, Corn. I write down 20,50, 200 SMA's for each. Moreover, i analyse all those markets in weekly (on sundays). For example, i predict that today USD is going down and markets are going up, so my trades will be ONLY in the direction of the markets. I will be buying dips in the market.

Daily indicators: CCI, CMF, Fast STO, MACD, RSI
Intraday indicators: Right now i don't use any, but i see that i have to find those indicators who can show me the strenght of the market movements: TICK?, Force index?.. I hope you will help me with this!
SMA: 20,50,100,200 (10min, 60min, 4 hours and daily charts)
EMA: 50 (60min chart)

Support/ressitance lines:
Pivot Points (but i'm planning to move to murrays math)
Yesterdays high/low, open/close


Each day i will enter my trades and my insights. I hope there will be some people who can give me an advice with my trading.

Today I'm buying the dips.

Though yesterday indices closed very bearish, today EUR/USD broke big ressitance at 1.3680. It would be very risky to short the indices when USD is going down. That is why today I will buy the dips.

Trading plan: Buy NQ 2000-2003 Stop loss 1995-1998

FWIW, I use the $tick to better time a lot of my entries, i.e. looking for the tick to get out to the recent extreme to get in. The attached image shows the 1-minute $Tick as example but i am using the tick chart of $TICK for greater precision.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

You might also think of using the NASDAQ tick ($TICKQ with esignal's symbology) as it may be more accurate for your NQ contracts, though can't say as I am just a $TICK dude. Not perfect (what is?) but IMO, if your reversal signals are spot on, helps with getting the sweetest fills possible.
Good luck and look forward to reading your journal
