Didn't post mon. because my nuts were in the vise.

Lost 80% of what I had made sun/mon Sessions.
Had a big drawdown but came out with 20% of daily profit or I'd still be out there.

Today made 4.4%.

I've got a new rule:

NEVER ADD TO A LOSING POSITION.

So here is the most recent "Trading Plan"

#1
Buy/Sell when you see an opportunity for price to move 30+ pips from your entry.
M1 entry/M5 Targets/M15 Direction

#2
Set stop at entry ALWAYS:
Goes something like this.
15pip catastrophic/30 pip minimum TP.
Exit 1/2 at -6, Exit Final at -12
Exit 1/2 at +6 Exit Final at TP.
Or any combination there of.


#3
Never add to a losing positon.

Here is Trading chart:

Image

The largest correction that does not return to the extreme is not a correction it's a reversal.

Well, look at each time price pulled back. Where is it pulling back from? Must be a new high or Low. (extreme)
What happens when the pullback gets bigger and bigger each time?
At some point it makes a smaller push or none at all.
The none at all (failed attempt) is said correction which is usually preceded by one larger than the rest.

The agony of having a very good idea of what is going to happen and not being able to act upon it.
To see very high probability entries is like curse.

The loss of possible pips due to early exits is killing me. It's a catch22.

In this pic I picked the top due to a supply zone area to the left on h4. (Red checkmark) I did set a limit order at 89...just left of the red price box the first time price entered the area....+5ish and +17.x
I had plenty of chances to short on a re-test but did nothing.
Then, after I got off work on the drive home I went long at the first green check.....ONLY took 4.x pips. (at least 20 available to supply) WTha.
After that I hit it long again off a demand bounce...for 6.x pips.
Very weak exit, could have easily had another 20ish.

Image


And look at this, I was short g/u from the top (90ish). only took .7 and 4.7.
Mother......
I did get back in short at the green box when price came back to test the supply zone after the drop....well I;ll be jiggered, bet you wouldn't have guess I ONLY took 6.3 out of that one................

Image

What a bunch of wasted time and pips!!!!!!!
Scared money will NEVER be BIG money. Hell, I'm only using 20 cent entries......

I've decided that I will fund my account with $50 a week. That means I've got between 250 and 500 pips to BURN.
My main focus is alleviating FEAR.

Believe it or not I almost followed my rules today, that is ALMOST.
At least I never added to a losing position and didn't freak out after having a couple losses.
Exiting half helped a little.

Back to work.

Pro , are you using the cci as an exit signal ?

If you are , here's a simple exercise that may help .

Once you are in a trade , immediately scrunch-up your chart to ONLY show the cci . And then only exit when it crosses your trigger .

I'm pullin for ya man ..........Chappy

Man ProchargedMopar you doing great.

Only 3 loses out of those and overall 72 pips.

I like seeing consistent profits. Keep up the good work.

Pretty soon you will be netting an average of 60-70 pips a day on 3 full lots and no loses.

dchappy,
No,
I'm not using cci for exits. Good idea though. I'm suppose to be using it as entry conformation but I only look at past events where it has worked.....I can't seem to look at anything but candles when trading.

I'm also suppose to watch the 8ma as my "trailing stop". I forget the thing is even on my chart, especially when in a trade. Looks good in hindsight though, eh?

Adaseb,

My entire goal at this point is to be free from fear when in the market. What ever I can find that works for me. On demo, no fear. On demo, 2-300 pips a day. Easy.

Today I took some $1 pip trades and lost my butt.. Funny thing is that when I went back to 10 and 20 cent pips I had no fear......Knew I could not really damage the account or something.....and I actually made back 8-10 $. Go figure.

As you can see final loss total was pretty big compared to account...No worries, I was up $17 already this week and I'm putting $50 a week into it for blowing pips.........

Here is pic and last 30 exits....Man, made a bunch back on news and then went to exit and hit the wrong buttons on both e/j and g/u....that cost me like 60 pips is one shot before I could exit(lost profit and loss from adding to receding positions.........doh.
