3 trades
+18 ticks
1) 123 macd cross at pivot diverg db, 3/8ma agree..........................................................................................+8.
2) 123 macd cross at pivot.another diverg db, waited for 3/8 ma agree, and macd..........................................+8
3)123 macd cross, pivot being 200ma 5/+2 activate.........................................................................................+2

total, 3 trades
+18 ticks

definately a little apprehensive today, i need to wait for the signals to evolve, gettin in early, gets me in trouble
if there is a diverg db or dt, there should be a 6 tick risk, otherwise wait for 3/8 ma agree and macd

i did take a few more noteworthy trades, that i didnt count in my total, keeping to a conservative tone today
thoughts about yesterday..before i tilted, i was up 14 ticks, and normally, i would stop.i got cocky,and stupiid, and turned that into a $250ish loss.that is a $400 swing...nogood, i should have stopped , at 14 ticks, worse case, -110, which would be a $250 swing, and not too painful, as $250 is my limit for now


today was silly fast at times, and there is no way i want to trade in that, my fills are bad
the 2 trades for +6 each, especially the last one(breakdown, were good)i am really lookin for these "with the trend" breaks, long and short.today, i had alot of cancelled orders for these types of trades.when the 8ma is sloping, especially off a pivot be ready, anticipate, but dont be too early
good job today
oh , good job to ray also, nice p&l

9trades
-1 tick
was down 25 ticks, clawed my way back, had a fatfinger mistake for -11, and 4 or 5 trades that went 5/+2, just one of those days..way too fast in am again
lost data because i had to reset my simulator

pm session, 9 trades, still wippy, had some etrocious fills, but, i included charts for the pm session, which was slower.some good trades
still looking for a trend trade, ive been really watchin for the bo/bd when the 8ma is sloping, which is basically a pb with the 8ma trend
watchin the 3ma, and what i am thinkin, is when the mas are agreeing, look for entries w trend, its when they dont agree , that is getting me into some trouble i think.
what a crazy week.ended up w 26 ticks on pm
that made me feel better, but for weekly results, ill use only am
a little bit of exasperation today, missing good trades, just too fast for me, maybe put up 6e tomorrow
cya

Maybe the 4Range chart is what's making it "too fast" for you? Just sayin'. I look at that chart and just imagine those bars whizzing by. That'd make it exasperating for me, too.

Cheers... Hap

i was talking about that with a friend today, and on days like this, i agree.once the market slowed a bit, it was ok.when the volatility is like this, i am going to consider the 6e for the am, and maybe the cl later after the open
cheers

10trades
+17
made some changes, need to trade with trend, will explain more tomorrow
i have been thinking about trading with the trend, for a while, nothin new, but its just obvious to me, that my chance to succeed ,improves greatly if i do this
i brought back the gmma, with the tct trend.simply, to stay out of the middle.no countertrades vs the gmma or tct, unless we are at a pivot, and we dont need to wait for the 123, if we are going to ct, take your best shot.1 shot.2nd ct candle is entry.and a diverg on macd is nice to have
will go into detail more later
atm strategy stopped me out too many times with +2 and +3.a waste
when the trade goes +6, my stop goes to +5, and thats it.a profit target of 20 ticks, just toi have it there, will manage trade(gain) manually.if one of those nice fast ones hits, hopefully my + 20 hits, and there you are.it happened yest, on a 2 lot, dropped 30 ticks from my entry in 1 second...thats the cl for ya

fomc day, and oil inventory,
also, july and june 1:1
6 trades +10
1)late entry, bailed,also, missed previous entries.................................................................................be
2)1st pb after break, 4 lanes, i need to focus , as i missed the next one just after this........................+5
3)diverg dt, in an uptrend..bad trade.....................................................................................................-5
4)took the break at top of channel, too extended, but worked..............................................................+5
5)stupid mistake, counter trend, look at 200, also, the ct 123 worked long...........................................-7
6)finally, a runner, 4 lanes..................................................................................................................... +13

the best setups seem to happen, kinda sneaky.watch when the lt is really compressed, try to guage a bias with 3 min, otherwise, the tct is really your bet, if alligned correctly with 200 ma, look for the space to start, and the 3/8ma start to mosy.it would be nice to catch the initial break, sometimes you even get a 123
not a bad day, definately missed some entries, but just starting to dial in the specific entry.i do like this, trading with the trend, finally

i consider going back to using the gmma, a big change, and i am weary.for me , i just want a difinitive area to stay out of.the gmma chart enables me to trade on the correct side of the 200 ma, and just wait for the tct to come around.ive used the gmma before, but i was so obsessed with counter trend plays, that i CHOSE not to focus on trend trading.this took me on a 6 month journey, which, i realize was necessary.,those counter trend plays can work, i just dont want them to be the type of trades i always look for, thus, ignoring these signals.silly me, i was doing pretty much this type of trading many months ago, when i went off and took a sidetrack..oy vay.lots of time

5/19/2011
3 trades
-3 ticks


1)good setup, bad execution, had 6 lanes, i just rushed it..untilo price pulls back 6 or 7 ticks, leave entry at bot...-8
2)price coiled off 100 even number, stepup w 123, late by 2 or 3 ticks..nice trade, followed manually, very nicely, just missed +16 profit target....+10
3)bad trade, even tho 4 range looked ok, this was aggressive, thinkin they would tank it to the low..wrong..3min out of order...-5

today, with the contract rollover, i was kinda not into it.but, i figured, see after open how volatility and follow thru..lookin to fund the acct next week, i feel pretty good with how the progress is doin, i will sim for 2 weeksmore, assuming results good, ill probably ease intp cash, and sim also

"also, been sim trading for 3 months, was in cash prior, but realized, needed more work..now that i have this journal, and im trying to be accountable, the old blood pressure goes up when im in a trade, and im only simmin, mind you"


Right on Bob, I have that same uptight-ed-ness in my sim trades as well. That means (IMO) that you may fair better when you go back to cash. I had been waaaaay to lax in my past simming and my real dollar trades ALWAYS suffered. It was always easy to just re-set my sim account. Hang in there my friend, we shall talk soon, Also, you are right, if you're gonna' do the CL, FOCUS on the CL. I too have tried to do the same thing and failed miserably, so much for multi tasking. Wow, I just realized this was from the first page, oh well it's good stuff anyway.

Your homie,

Ray
