I am more ashamed than you are. Just because I stopped and then started to trade again. Looking back on the charts even after news when volatility was pretty high I can see a lot of nice entries but my eyes were closed and my brain didn't work. All I had was anger and with every losing trade it was growing more and more.
Would I stay calm and concentrate I could do much better. Good thing you got all back and some on the top off it. I just knew that if I keep clicking I'll go even lower because I stopped thinking after news came out.

Yes, my brain was shutoff as well.

I didn't really get angry today. Just disappointed in myself and knowing that I can do better. Typically I would get angry so that is a change.

Thanks for sharing.

-1 point today

Well, I am back to my old habits it seems. 16 trades today, but I don't feel too poorly about them. It seemed long to me after I missed the pivot, but I figured a retrace would be enough so I tried a few times, bounced. Then I decided to go long, bounced. Then short again and I got a great pivot!

I did not let the indicators tell me when I most likely would need to exit. Instead, my bad habits of getting out too soon jumped in my way. I could have easily been up a couple points today. That first long was incredible... I don't recall ever seeing a 20 point move up like that or at least my memory is suffering.

All-n-all, I am only disgusted in my ability to manage the trades. I caught some small one's, but they could have been big one's had I been technical.

This weekend I will need to get my head on straight. Drawdown was quite high today.

Have you been watching Horst on Youtube and his new ways? I used them yesterday in sim and got 6 points. Today the DOW was down over 100 points at opening. That and it being Friday... stay out!

Well, you don't know until you know right?

Yes, I watch Horst often on the ES. He is doing quite good, but a little scary the other day for me. Kind of like the trading I did yesterday, but not nearly as bad as I was...

he is a great trader and enjoy watching his vids..

Moderator Note


The appropriate place to discuss Horst is in the vendor section. You can find that vendor thread here:

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Some thoughts...

When I wake up in the morning am I....

Excited to trade because...
I will make money today
I will dance well with the market
I will find peace with the market

Not Excited to trade because...
I will be 'risking' capital
I will be tired and won't trade well
I will be risking being wrong
I am not supposed to be excited. Boring is good.

Just some thoughts...

+3.6 points today per contract

Well, considering I hit the pivot at the top by 1 tick, then I think my points could be in the +10+ category...

Well, you never know. I thought we were headed up further because of the strong premarket price action trend and boy was I wrong.....

If I stuck with my indicators, then I would be much more consistent and profitable, but instead I am 'inferring' what the market is telling me as far as strength etc..

I will trade what I see....

-.1 points per contract today


Ok, wow, I feel a bit worn out. I thought for sure some of my trades would work out only to be knocked out by a tick for a runner. Big bars today and I was too slow or hesitant to take advantage.

I liked short and shorts should be my #1 choice considering market conditions, but the MACD's were telling me long after a while, but I couldn't make up my mind.

I finally picked the right direction and it was long nicely, but the retraces kept knocking me out and then going. I did pretty good considering I was so far down for the day.
