Will be posting videos on here during the trading day showing any trades I make. More for personal accountability than for comment. Videos will be silent as it's too much hassle having a headphone on all day and having a sqwawk in my ear all the time. Videos will be paused and only started when in a trade and have just had an entry. Otherwise looking at hours of footage!

Will have a pointer showing the area of the trade and pointing to why I am entering.
Only one screen will be on show. Will not have any of my numbers bar charts on there that are also used, might try to swipe them down to the recording screen to show what I'm doing.

Had to take kids to dentist so a shortened trading day. One real chance and missed it as did not sent limit sell low enough.
All I will say about my trading is that I no longer try to be a smart arse and catch price before it turns as I have been stopped out too many times which affects confidence which then causes you to doubt when your good trades come along.
So I wait for price to show me that it wants to move, get a worse entry price but a much surer chance of price going my way.

Suggest you display only one chart.... maybe take the one you are using to execute your trades to full screen. It is too busy to figure out what all those charts are and appreciate what you are doing. This first example may not be typical of what you hope to do but by the time I figured out which chart you had your cursor the video ended.

Thanks for the reply. Having one chart means I would have to spend lots of time writing on it/making markings/describing what I'm seeing. A video should be wortha thousand words-will go a bit slower if I can!

Interesting article on zerohedge today from Spotgamma, saying they feel this is a short covering rally so might not be as strong/have as much support as you would expect. Seems a fair idea with their baffling (to me at least) analysis but it takes a brave man to hold a short for long against that move higher!
