Week in Review 23th-27th

Well not a bad week in all but there are a few things I need to corrected. Number one is not to fight bais, 2-3 lossers in the ES were from this. Second is not taking every trade. I do not know in advance what the out come is going to be so skipping trades is just one lost opportunity and being the house the more opportunity with edge the more money I will make.

ES 3 winners 3 Losers +8.5Pts

Eur/Usd 7 winners 7 losers +84 Pips @ 10000k

Aud/Usd 2 winners 71.5 Pips @ 10000k

Thanks


Really like your trading style. Similar to mine, but much better.

Thanks for sharing your thought process. Your prep work is a great idea and something I really haven't done in the past. I'll be starting today to try to get a feel for doing it.

Thanks again,

-AT

5/3/2011 Trades

Another bad day of execution on the Eur/Usd, but ES execution was good.

ES 5.5 PTS 2 winners 1 Loser

Eur/Usd 2 winners 1 loser 15.5 Pips


I need to let my edge work and not move stops, I've had 4 trades that would have been winners if I would have left the stop alone.

Questions

Hey Brett,

Thanks for posting today's trades. I have a couple of quick questions if you don't mind.

On your second trade, the second bar low wasn't broken on the next bar to trigger the short. Do you enter any differently when that happens or do you just keep the entry price the same and wait for it to be hit?

And on your chart it looks like the entry is more like 2 ticks below the 2nd bar low at 1354.75 (I'm assuming you enter 1 tick above/below the 2nd bar). It may just be the way the chart looks, but wondered if you entered lower purposely.

By the way, that moving the stop thing has been costing me more than it saves me lately too.

Thanks again,

-AT

Answer:

AT:
To be honest I have a hard time with set-ups that are not clear with two consecutive down or up bars. Most of the time I will take a 3 bar entry or gut feeling. That trade was a gut feeling with a little sweat. The next bar which would have been a 3 bar entry would have been a better entry. The first trade was not the greatest because it was the 4th or 5th continuation in the leg down without a macro correction. The best continuations are the first and second after bias has broke. I seem to get a little anxious at the open and seem to sit on my hands or take a trades without the greatest odds. The best trade ended up being the trade when I was off screen (of course) which the ES held micro bias down for the second time (the trade with the elipse on it).

Thanks for the questions - they're always helpful!
