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.

Trades 7/26/2011


I have been playing Mr. Mom the last couple of days, I have a three and five year old and with mom out of commission I've had to carry the load. So I have not had a chance to trade the open the last 4 days. I should be back on track tomorrow with prep and I will start prepping the Euro again. Here are my trades yesterday and today. I need work on getting in and not trying to save a tick its cost me a lot of money. I try to take the next price with a completed range bar but I have been waiting for a new bar and then trying to buy the bid if long or the ask if short. Trying to save 12.50 is costing me more money then it's saving because I miss my fill.

7/27/2011

My Ninja Trader is not loading my long term charts at the moment. I waiting for the test of 1316 a bounce off it and we should retest 1322.50. A hold of 1322.50 and we should retest 1316 with a possible break down to 1292. A break of 1322.50 to the upside and we should retest 1340.

The ES was stretched and of course got more stretched no real opportunity to go short in the morning. I missed a good long and got long thinking we would retrace deeper. A lot of movement not much opportunity for me.


1 loser 1 scratch -1.25

Prep 7/29/2011

The ES keeps pushing lower but still holding 1283 for a possible retest of 1294 micro bias. A hold of 1294 and we should push down to 1270.

prep 8/2/2011

Another long couple of days, my in-laws had 13 inches of rain in 12 hours Wednesday night at their home in Gelena,IL. Their basement took on some water but they managed to keep water away from walls and furniture. The carpet and padding was destroyed. So I have been on cleanup crew the last few days and over the weekend. I need to get back in the grove of things.

The ES is moving down to retest the 1250 area, Micro bias is holding at 1275 and Marco at 1286. A hold of the micro bias and we should push below 1270 and start moving towards the 1250 area.

It filled the gap and down it went. Prep was pretty close and execution was good, I just need to add a contract and get some size on with the trend. Huge down day but I was busy in the afternoon and missed most of the action. I talk about bias a lot but look at this day and you never see the ES break micro bias the whole day.

Plus 5.25 PTS

I include a chart I made explaining bias.
