Dude I was so confused this morning. I had 4 loosing trades so far. Then I passed on the winning trade. Haha..

Took a break then got in long at 780.9 around 12:30. I'm still in that trade because it doesn't move anywhere. This week is just crazy for me. I'm probably gonna finish with -5.5 points for today if it's not gonna start moving up.

Dude!!! I hope it worked out for you. That is the whole reason I don't like big stops....

Easy to get backed-up...

Did you see the 233 at 9:10 Central Time? BBs came up FROM BELOW (a rare occurence it seems to me).

Wow, what a slow moving day! I could not get in-sync!

I did good staying out of the market until I was getting ready to wrap it up and voila, I clicked.....

then I clicked...

then I clicked...

then I scalped....

then I scalped....

Too slow, didn't take the trades at the pivots that I marked, but was waiting for perfect picture! Never had it until the last trade of the day and by then I was exhausted and tired of watching it crawl along.... I hope we get some velocity soon or I might have to switch to CL.

I am looking for it to go up a bit, but I thought it was coming down to a confluence area first.

It seemed a bit unusual for me.....

My main thing was that LONG was clearly the direction to trade, but I was thinking a nice retrace *COULD* occur so I was staying clear until I was certain. My very last trade of the day was really the only super clear trade to me, but it was moving soooooooooooo slow, that I decided I would rather clean my toenails...

Wow, what a rough day! It was up, down, no up, no down, wow.... I kept changing my mind.

I did a good job of staying out of it, then I said, "I am man enough to profit from this market...."

This is a market you stay out of!!! My fault, didn't hold my stops, and the big stops cost me a few points.

Live and learn and hopefully the market heats up some. I do terrible in conditions like this...

I failed all tests for myself today.

Today I give myself a D+ for following my rules etc..

I tried a larger stop and I honestly don't think I have it in me. 2 bad trades and I got a whole lot of makeup work and it makes me lazy.

First trade out of the gates was obviously turning against me and I continued to stay in it. My 2nd trade didn't need the huge stop, but I figured I would give it a shot. I was 'wiggin' inside.

I scaled out too soon on the first good trade, but the 2nd was perfect.

I was moving my stops again, and lucky I guess.

I won't let myself get too down as I was at least able to read the direction of the market.

I don't mind actually.

CL is great sometimes and I almost switched to CL probably about 9 months ago, but decided to stick with TF as the CL moves a bit differently obviously!

I also like FDAX, but when they trend THEY TREND....

You did good today. Make sure you can do that live though as your stops are large and make sure your account could handle that.

That was live

just took another spot on trade, im done for the day now. Ill try record them next time if i feel confinable

I start off woth a 20 tick stop loss, may seem excessive. But i move it up quickly according to what i see. Im using other time frames to time my entry perfect too as at the moment i find it hard to get a good entry on the 144 tick chart most of the time

I like crude the most because of the voilent prce acion and moves. I find TF, 6E, ES move to slow most of the time. although they are good trending markets. were the crude can gets NUTS and too fast and voloitine. But i have been a tape reader for 3 years which can also help

here is a screen shot of my set up at the moment, i got another screen ready. just waiting for the adaptor to arrive :[email protected]

When I click to expand your graphic, I get "Powered by Highslide JS." Am I missing something? (I'm using Google Chrome.)

Thanks.
