26/1

little bit stressful day filled up with (forgotten!!!) FOMC while "trading" on CL. I am not able to reload data to show my chart on CL, but it was very clear and fast 3x loss.

On YM I did couple trades too, but there was no solid move to stay till end of session.

Trades

YM
nr.4 bounce from open price, didnt work full stop loss
nr.5 I tried another move up, at the begining I was ready to move quickly stop according plan, but it was not necessary.
nr.6 market was ranging and I went in again, but 1 tick missed to PT
nr.7 not good idea to jump in, I just didnt scratch this trade

I am going to cure myself, so good night

27/1


Hi all,

I have been just couple minutes able to trade, but there was more than enough occasions.

Trades
nr.1 setup was according to a plan, exit on moved sl. , couple ticks left to PT
nr.2 too soon jumped in, too fast out , patience, patience, thats what I miss
nr.3 finally I got strong setup also on higher TF ( move down supported with bounce from EMA50) and I reached a PT.

28/1

nice moves, rally as in Monte Carlo...just without navigator . Thats how I see market today.
It is maybe because of I am little bit tired (2 days without sleeping ) and all moves seemed to me quite fast .
Ok, lets say, that I should quit earlier with nice profit, but I was very greedy and finished on 0, yes big rounded zero!
I am very sorry, but I dont have today mood to anatomize each trade. I will try to return back on sunday with it.
I have one BIG thank you for Jinhar, you kicked me in right way, it is still not visible on my results, but I hope,
that I will break "the spell" very soon and I will work on my profit-target-be-happy-strategy-... .

R.

p.s. on chart are missing 2 last trades, if I would shrink the chart, it would be completely useless

31/1 + complete January summary

When I was on the way home from work, I stopped to take a fuel..when I saw the price per liter I was little bit surprised. I just said to myself "fine,
you want more money from me, but I will take it back " . Guess, how this finished. I took more, than I put into my car , fair enough.
Now I am thinking, that I could buy rather some hungry V8 to replace my modest diesel, it would be more motivating.

When I saw the chart, I was quite scared. So strong uptrend, will I have an opportunity to jump in?
More than enough, I was trying to pick up the best places for trades, but I wasnt 100% successful.

Trades:

nr.1 bounce from demand area, didnt work
nr.2 this was on the basis of crossing price EMA50 on higher tf, I jumped in when signal appeared.
nr.3-4 it was bounce of price on higher tf from EMA50, I did everything according to a plan, but market moved up without me
nr.5 last occasion, which brought me for another PT.

I am going to show you summary of all trades(CL) in january, there are not commission which I would count around 5$ per trade.
This mean 0$ profit in january. I reached lot of new experiences, especially on CL market, which is completely new for me.
I have couple comments, but I need to rewrite it from paper first . I would like to share it with you, so tommorow it will be here, but its not any extra new, just my notes...

Then, I wanted to change my style of trading, but I will not. I will change couple things, but I fell in love to trade with trend,
I am going to gently edit my view on markets, timing of entries, but that would be all.

addition to january

quick notes from last month

positive

- adapting to a new market (CL)
- using multiple tf charts (3RB, 6RB and last couple days 12RB)
- implementation of rules for trading in trend/range market
- I achieved more than one PT in a day!
- leading regular statistics in excel, one_note (it helps me to be more careful)
- found way how to be more focused during trading ( shorter time - 1 hour for CL, sometimes more than enough )
- interpretation of trend in market ( believe or not, it was very confusing times for me without this knowledge)


negative

- partly breaking of my plan ( nr. of losses over daily limit, countertrend trading)
- no ritual before trading, I am doing couple things before I jump in, but there is not checking important reports, I forget very often to review process of market from previous hours, I dont mark important demand/supply zones, etc.
- I dont have realistic daily goals, to trade only 1 hour should be fine, but now I know, that I could find some profit target ( I did )
- for me it is not working : more trades = more money
- too many trades in a row with same mistakes
- entering market after huge move, hoping that it will move again
- when I got feeling, that market is too lazy, I relax and in second market jump into the big move and I miss my entry
- no profit at the end of month!!!


If you have any comments, you are welcome. I like myself too much and it could happen, that I missed something really important. I hope , that I will be able to move this month forward.

1/2

with new month I am bringing couple news, changes..

- I realized, that I would be very happy if I finish every day above zero, but it will not make me "rich" , so I aimed to a daily profit target, which will be same as a disaster day in opposite result: 240$ / 3x full loss -240$. After this target I stop trading.
- next change is using more higher tf to avoid milion signals in 1 hour of trading, I will try to explain it in next days
- I am going to be profitable

trades for today

nr.1 confirmed downtrend on higher tf, 7 seconds long trade
nr.2 bounce from EMA50, market turned after 2/3 move to PT. I was happy for my quick reactions with moving sl.
nr.3 same as nr.2 , but it worked better

I hit my daily goal after these 3 trades. I am very interested in my behaviour during less trending days..

2/2

hello traders,
I have been fighting like a tiger today, but it wasnt too much effective.
I missed one juicy trade on the beginning - too much thinking, no action. Then I was chasing market till last minute...


nr.1 this entry was not good idea, I was angry because of missed first trade, emotions appearing
nr.2 another occasion, but I moved my sl more than I was supposed to do, it would be PT, anger rising
nr.3 yes, I did it! entry signal supported on higher tf with price bounce from EMA50
nr.4 I am hunting ticks, I just saw couple tops, which looked like a "good" resistance, so why not to jump in... I am going to punish myself for such a trades
nr.5 very difficult entry, on RB6 downtrend, but on RB12 I was exactly on EMA50, exit on moved sl.

I was very close to my daily goal, but I failed..positive is, that I didnt loose too much with so many trades.
