Hey, you can't think this way. Not if you want to succeed. If you are finding success is not coming, then redefine success so that you can be successful with something less than 'net profit'. Ask yourself what your strengths and weaknesses are after reviewing your six months of journal entries. Formulate a plan to play to strengths and minimize weaknesses. Actively work it, use feedback like post it notes or alarms, be accountable - set up rewards as well as penalties for failing to accomplish tasks --- like if you are over trading maybe no TV for you If you followed your plan well then reward is whatever you enjoy, etc.

It's the small things that will get you there.

Mike

Mike,

Good point. I didn't mean it as "I will never be successful" but more of a "I am on this journey no matter what".

This is a good point, I feel I am not doing what I need to be doing and have been given some great advice. Patience is my key issue and I am click click click happy. I don't watch TV so... Hmmm. No Breathing for 10 days. haha...

I will see what I come up with.

Ok, not the best entry on my 2nd trade.

First trade was decent but it had one more 'pop' in it. Technically it didn't meet Horst's criteria, so I could have chosen to stay out.

Third trade was, well, I knew too early.... I took the risk anyways.

Trend is up, didn't see a great long, so I took the shorts again.

Maybe I am taking shorts as I am seeing the economy being so 'down' but yet the market is up up up up. QE is obvious, but I have to decide to move on.

I think I have been officially banned from New Futures Trading as I can't login to see Horst trade any longer. Too bad as I enjoyed watching his magic. Probably for keeping this journal or probably not participating. I don't really care much.

The training kept changing over time and now it is all about 'trailing bands' or something. Seems like every few months the system needs a tweak to find something to talk about or something to notice. When you have a service, I guess you have to keep it fresh. I do not believe the indicators are the 'magic' and that it is within the trader and just time learning the market flow while not picking up bad habits.

Per Horst, I see being loyal as a good reason to help Henry, but I guess I believe that people move through their own path with a certain amount of respect for those that helped them. I wish them all the best and hopefully more will be trading live and profitable soon WITH Horst.

1st trade was impatience, 2nd trade was woowoo until it knocked me out, 3rd trade was better self control.

I have still been evaluating playing with OIL (CL) as the runs are bigger and hitting 2-3 points is easier. But, I have to see how many trades I can make in that time. 3 trades on Oil could be a challenge.

Banning is probably a strong word. Could be a technical issue for the week or just tired of me continuing on with my bad habits. ;0

I think Henry means well, but he is a strict coach, like a coach probably should be.

I do believe he is a profitable trader to this day, but for some reason he wants to help others and sort of be 'worshiped'. I never really understood that, but I work with a person now who is VERY political. I was never a 'have to be popular' type of person so I don't get it and that is just my own background and perspective.

Thanks Jeff, but to be fare, technically he has committed to his end of the bargain which was 1 year for x dollars. So, me staying over was something at his will which was a nice surprise. I know Henry has gone through a lot of changes in his life and has challenges like us all with limited time and resources to really do what we all want to do.

I personally would like to see him trade live and make money. To me, that is the greatest motivator of all and the most interesting to learn from. I learn watching surfers surf, golfers golf and playing the game myself.

I am never a fan of the vendor format, but some people feel that is a great way to do it and for different reasons, but I guess I have decided that it isn't for me to judge.

Thanks for reading and I appreciate your feedback and as they say, life goes on. Or, "It is what it is..."

On the good side, my wife continues to be profitable daily now for over a month straight, but she is trading for about 1 point a day taking 5 tick winners. It is actually surprising how well she is doing, but I asked her to not go live trading until she does it for 2 months live market (sim @ 3:30am in the morning!) and with 10 contracts instead of the typical 3 she trades. Should be interesting and I may post her results.

Here you go.

Also, right click on that indicator and set default if you want multiples.
