-1.1 points today per contract

Ok, I am negative 1.1 points on 3 trades and I did take a 4th trade.

I know I could have avoided it, but it was perfect, but honestly didn't go where I thought it was going to go. It was a breakout, then pull back and then retraced to knock me out. Considering the last trade I would have still been negative 2 ticks per contract.

I had a very tough time reading today! It was up, down, up down... I was looking for longs which was the proper direction, but for some reason I didn't take them!!!! I took 3 shorts! Amazes me!

I have been lacking clarity this week. I was much more patient on my entries today, but my first couple arrows placed would have been profitable! haha..

I am happy I showed restraint in the first few minutes, but the first entry was very imaginative!

Are you interested in comparing analysis of historicals? (Or any else here who's studied with you know who.) If so, here is one of mine.

I can put together a historical, but my time is short these days. I typically go back through after recording my video each day and spend at least 10-20 minutes seeing why and where it pivot and what the best setups were. I even put back market replay right where it was at that time so I can see it in real time or just before to help my brain.

Something I brought up to another trader just now is that lately (last 2 weeks) stress on my development projects has doubled and some bad news came through on another deal etc. and my emotional state is not doing as well as I like.

I am realizing more over time how important your brain has to be clear of all that mess as I find myself not mentally seeing anything really and just clicking to fire off my 3 trades out of despair.

My wife has been picking the direction and timing very well these last few days, so I know it isn't the 'system', but me and it is interesting to watch her trade the same day and come out completely different. I would be frustrated by that in the past, but I have long let go of that.



Maybe I can throw some historicals together tonight.

I agree, but I do look at it as 'divergence' from a basic standpoint. It is 'diverging' in dimensions from the price action, so technically that adds up.

Your first point is new to me and interesting. Good point.

Trade of the day

Here is a nice trade for today and some logic behind it. The 610 really didn't look all that nice considering.

This was a beauty!

BuleMule,

so essentially, on that recording, thanks btw,

you're essentially doing singular market analysis approach or a holistic approach to trading the TF.

have you given thought to outside factors, given the markets are so thightly correlated?

actually what makes this so are the proliferation of the massively large hedge and HF traders and their algorythmic systems, as long as they continue to garnish tens of millions daily, they'll continue to use them

I used to when I was trading live in the morning. I would look at the indi's on a few others and see what it looked like. However, right now, not so much.

I used to trade just fundamentally (and was profitable!) and have learned that a bias does more harm then good on intra-day trading and doesn't leave me as open.

Do you have any suggestions to pay attention to?
