Like you told me one day. "You just made money by trading on sim".

Tomorrow another day!

I think that it doesn't matter what instrument you trade. Like Horst says they all move the same way. Some just slower or faster. One can have clear setup toady and another one tomorrow. I guess you know that better than I do.

It should not make you feel bad about your trading if someone made money today and you lost. Keep your head up.

You are doing quite well. Can you explain why you took the setups? What was loud and clear about this method that made you take those specifically or was it a combination of other methods etc..?

Here is what the charts looked like on entry, i removed the fib levels. But all my trades today were off a fib level zone

i have got global cursor on so you can see the exact picture I entered on



here i took profit and reversed my poisition off the doubble bottom level in red

Today was abit hairy, got off to a good start and then made a few silly mistakes. I was trying to record my trades live for orin and people but its just distracts me so i probs wont be doing it any more. but i recorded my 1st trade live. Im going to post it on orins jounal if you want to watch. Im done for the day now. got 2 trades on the run 1st one got a 5 point run and the second a 5.3 point run



Just took another beautiful short but on SIM

I love this method :-D

Cant wait to be trading 20 contracts, i have got to get over the fear on entry and locking in my 1st target. Need to teeach me self to hold the trades

B+ for trading 'properly' per my rules.

Got a bit jumbled up today on the 1st entry, but was pretty certain it was ready for a drop, but boy was it moving!

Exiting from my trade was tough. I figured it would hit the 100%, but because it was moving a but wild I figured I would at least exit at the 61% instead of the 100%. This cost me since I only had one contract, but so goes life.

I didn't see another entry clearly for the rest of the day.
