thurs
5 trades-$35
the charts speak for themselves MISSED ENTRIES
focus, also, for my stop strategy, when price goes to +5, i go to be, at+10, go to +5, at +15, go to +10
cutting my winners off, constantly.for 1 contract, discipline is necessary.as i look at my results, daily, i see good things, even tho this month is a loss.not bad, but a loss.now that i have a method, my job is to trade every trade that fits my rules, and adhere correctly to my stop strategy.if i do this, i will be profitable.the key here, is the execution.dont pass on good trades, and dont miss them, and dont cut off the ones that go.even in a thin emotional market, this method works.every day, in recap, this is evident.im not saying we make $every day, but the average at month end, will be positive, as soon as you give in to this whole heartedly, and EXECUTE, you will have attained cocnsistency

back from vacation
10 trades
+$405 net
wild day, the ym puking, the cl was very tradable at the open , but by 1030, it started getting wippy and rangebound.alot of decent setups today, missed a few, but thats a given.have my kids for the week, so , i dont want to expect too much.it can be hard to focus, when theyre reckin the place around me.i want to focus on channel breaks to, and treat it like a b123, which, when the ch breaks, wait for the small pb.use a stop tho, not a limit, as this is a momentum play.
i switched my stop strategy.ive been doing alot of thinking, and i need to stop taking profits too quickly.its time.i got some 10s, and a 24 today..i realize most days arent like this, but what i would like, is to get 1 runner a day, and i think that will make the difference.5/1/10 is my stop strategy, with a hard stop at -8.
my last trade of the day was a full stop, and, iwas like, no way am i giving this back......thanks fat tails for helping with the stop strategy

just a thought...when the mas 1st cross the tct, essentially, this will be the original 123 in a potential trend.typically, these are not takeable signals.as the pictures depict, i am looking to ride the wave, when all 3 mas are alligned.sometimes, this takes a while to happen, and when it finally does, is the move allready extended?if so, then am i buying at the top?from past experience, trying to get in early doesnt work well for me.the big 123s can turn to doub tops and bottoms.but, so can normal signals.i guess, what i am stumbling towards, is how much room does the trade have?some early 123s can work, when the have a divergence sig on the macd, at a pivot.that makes sense.Or, when a trade is say, toppped out, and the tct is good, and it rolls over.todd does these, and they make sense.they can have a 123, and need to have a visual point, where i can enter.i changed my stop strategy, to get some runners, and it has worked well, so far.i dont want to be fussing about thisevery day.sometimes the most unlikely entries go 30 ticks.with this said, i enter, and let the atm exit.emotionally, this is easier for me, especially when it is fast.also, a fact is, when my entries are correct with my mas, AND on the correct side of the 200ma, i see a much better result.if i can get 1 runner a day, it seems to be a big difference in the net profit ..i am listening to andrew menaker, a speaker/psychologist, a webinar todd passed along.very good.anyway, more thoughts , later

1 trade..be
didnt really want to trade today..yup..thats about it.the setups in the beginning were good enough, i took 1, for a be, it collapsed, but thats the way it goes.the michigan sent # hit, and the market reacted.i didnt pay any attention to it, i guess i shoul have..doesnt matter at this point.i am burnt from watchin my 3 yr olds for 2 weeks, the last week by myself.potty training, breakin up fights, bla bla bla..its all mental i wont beat myself up here.i think tuesday, my kids go back to grand mas, and i can get back to my schedule.had a great week, best so far.net +$850, simmin
need tro keep this up, now that i know what im lookin for.when i used to go to the gym often, some of my best days were on the days when i didnt even want to be there.its all mental.we need to circumvent negative feelings, because they have no place in trading, they r a killer.we have to believe in what we r doing, our indicators, method, and decisions.with that said, if you dont want to trade a day, does it make sense to turn on the computer?well, that remains to be seen, because, mentally, the building process has begun, and as we build, we gain confidence.bottom line is, the method works, we just need to EXECUTE

1 AND DONE
a beautiful day here in ny, and im gonna take it.cl is up at res, i dont wanna push my luck with more longs..but mainly, the sept cl is at 40%vol, which imo, for my setups, carry thru can be iffy.lately, i have been thinking about other types of trades, that make sense, which would be typ[ically countertrend.Heres the thing, what im doing now is working.If i can get 2-5 high probability trades a day, this , i believe, will keep me safe.And by the way, next week, after rollover, i will be working the am shift,

2 contracts almost at even vol, a wicked selloff.there were some good trades, and , i just didnt have the correct mindset for them.its ok to decide to be careful about rollover days, but if the signals are there, we have to take the good ones.So here is what we do, ....we switch to practice acct, and just trade correctly.there is no point in sitting here, with a 1/2 assed focus, thats just a waste of time for me...and now, i missed a fewe good ones, and that is what im thinking about...its all mental..i accumulated negatve baggage today, because my mindset was not appropriate.All in all ,not a big deal, lets proceed , and learn from this.tomorrow, we set acct on practice, and go to work.the 1 tared wasnt bad, but the tct isnt great.3 tick slip on entry, 2slip on exit...hmmm
