My brother......

Have you considered automating your rules?

It is not as hard to do as you think it is which might come as a shocker I know. In all honesty, and this is a very good thing, your rules, at least on the surface to me, don't seem like they would be very hard to produce in BloodHound.

In my view every trader should have BloodHound and BlackBird as simply standard equipment.

Take advantage of the tools of the times...... Think about digging a basement for a new home.... hand to shovel or an excavator.

Make your computer follow your rules for you....the thing is specifically made to follow rules..... just like you would make an excavator dig the basement for you....instead of you out there with a shovel. Yes of course you must operate the excavator but it's way better/easier than busting your butt with a shovel. This analogy holds perfectly true in your case.

It would be much easier to follow your rules using tools made to do so.

I do understand everybody has to do this business their own way.....for sure.... just thought I would offer this. It does mean another “thing” you have to learn/do with your time…I get it… absolutely.

3 trades today.Yesterday i pondering, as i often do about trading.I believe the trades are there, typically each day.I just think that for many years i have viewed the markets mainly seeing the leaves, and not the forest.Everyone has their timeframes ,so the forest will be different, just like the definition of a trend will be different.So, i was thinking about the plays i have, and the tendencies of how they perform,in the context of the day.The way I see it, more so than not , we will not be in breakout days.That doesnt mean we cant break the previous HOD or LOD.I devised a roadmap ,with my plays in mind
.When I came in a t 5 am, things were setting up (what i thought ) were shorts.GBPUSD allready tagged the 200 ema, and typically,this will not produce a NHOD/NLOD....So when price closed below the 200, i was on board for a short on a pb to the 21 .There were 2 problems with this trade.1st, my sl to nhod was 30 ticks...way too much...2nd, the 1st hit of the 200 ema produced a nhod.This isnt common, and we went into trend mode.I was aware of the nhod produced by the 1st hit off the 200 ema.I was thinking to myself, that this should probably be a long to test new highs.So why did I hold? I learn better whwn i get punched in the face i guess.But....will i learn?

EURUSD long was just incorrect.As per my plan, the 1st pb to 60 after nhod is long territory...I need to post my rules..all over the house...and in the yard too apparently.

EURJPY had the same trade...A long at 60 ema (at sup/yhod no less!!!) after nhod....wtf!!

These 3 charts will be in my pocket everywhere i go...-51 ticks today

The trades are there...but can i open my eyes?

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

i would consider it actually.Correct me if im wrong, but last time i checked ,bloodhound was very pricey.The thing that bothered me about yesterday, is that on 2 charts , the setups were very good trend plays.Its an indication that i dont know my rules inside and out.I should see these rules in my sleep

4 Trades today.
-37 ticks...
Im going to make a change here.Its been quite a while, Ive been using the 5min trading 3 pairs

GBPUSD
EURUSD
EURJPY

GBPUSD moves the most, so i am going to focus on that for now.Typically, this pair can affect the other two,and its frustrating.

Using the 5min for entry has been frustrating, because the price can run away from me.I will still be using it .For entry, I want to bring in the 1min again.Ive been through this so many times,and i always come back to the same thought..."what will be different this time?".I would like to use the 5min for direction,and the 1min for entry.Even going for a simple 20 tick target vs 20 tick stop has been tough.

In the past , the 1min has just chopped me up.

I cant remember the last good day I had, so what do i have to lose?I still intend on keeping it simple.

have you thought of switching instrument, I see a guy tried his method for 9, 10 months on 1 instrument without success then he switch to diff instrument and the result is much better.

On the 1st long, i took the measured move.+25

On 2nd long, i was looking for another MM.I got taken out on the pb. +15

I come in at 5 am eastern.We tested yhod.There was a ddt at the highs, which i was very tempted to take.I like the defined edge of a nhod for my risk.I will be watching for this.
