hello lovely Kreslik-ers!

first of all i wanna thank MightyOne, Dragon33, ES/PIP and of course, the man, the myth, the legend The Rumpled One
you guys turned my head into right directions
even tho we all kinda trade the same you showed me that everyone sees things differently
which led me to have the courage to take the toys you gave me and go explore on my own
oh! and lets not forget our almighty landlord Michal Kreslik :D
keeping this alive ---- fighting the hackers ---- fkn one man army here =D>

____
im not a Yale Student, i got the M.A. in economics from some shithole in Poland
but at the same time i am a Yale Student ---- stick with me!
years ago i remember i joined the 2% club on the PALTALK by TRO
and while the guys there were just trading doing their thing
i went in and started talking about my mental newbie ideas
to which TRO called me the Yale Student
those who know whats the story behind it also know that its not the best thing to be called :wink:
i really like that story
thats a trivia nobody fkn asked for :lol:
_____

ive spent countless hours on this forum searching, lurking and reading even did some posting but never went for my own thread
i never needed it
everything is somewhere here
but the day has come :wink:

years ago i found success trading "day tradable" charts like M15 all the way up to H1
always being aware of where i am on the daily/weekly ---- YOU KNOW THE DRILL
that was and probably will always be the core of my trading

but the thing i always stuggled with was trading M1 charts
there were significant periods of me doing well
and there were some sht periods :wink:
overall keeping my head over the water
just enough for me to consider chasing this idea

WHY WOULD I CARE IF I CAN JUST STICK WITH WHAT WORKS FOR ME?
i believe you need to constantly improve
while everything is working
you need to keep moving forward to avoid going backwards
in my life i ran two businesses
and in both cases being lazy and not working towards new solutions (while old were working) was a mistake

SO!
FULL DISCLOSURE!
i will be 100% honest with you here
im trading real money only
if i suck ass and lose ill post it
i think ill also post my thought process etc.
this should evolve over time


MY PROBLEMS:
- not willing to practise since i can trade M15+ only
- not being patient enough (believe it or not, you also need patience at M1 chart :wink:)
- not sticking with my basic rules (always trying something different)

i want to leverage the power of running my own topic and being held accountable for my actions
so to start (this may change over time)
EDITED 3 times on the first day already
jesus christ :shock:

RULES FOR TRADES and TOPIC:
- make/ post at least 1 trade a day (to basically practise everyday)
- trade only emini sp500 (i tend to jump around, so ill stick with one market to get the feel)
- stick mainly with european session (ill trade US session if i get jiggy on my main trading account and wont have the time to trade EUROPE)
- mostly trade with momentum (fading the overextensions is allowed counter momo)
- i use depth of market, zlines, sd, sr and tape read a little
- and NOT USE FKN TRENDLINES BECAUSE I DONT UNDERSTAND THEM, haha
- always be aware of the higher frames positioning

aight guys!
lets fkn destroy it

looking to sell currently


UPDATES:

looking back at it now i need to say a few things
- by "trading M15+ charts" im not talking about timeframes but the time in a trade
- i mainly trade order flow here
- this is my attempt to incorporate more scalping into my trading
- over time i switched from sp500 to crude oil

sold
screens in a few

need to find something for quick screenshoting

EDIT:
sharex + tinypic is just outstanding
you screenshot with a hot key, you edit, you click, you got it online ready to roll

+6

i might be calling trades from time to time (like this one for example)
but this is scalping so it might not be the best idea to distract myself
we'll see

+10 on this one
right into higher frames resistance
i feel like this 52 level is strong enough to hold

US session is WAAY more volatile
im not exactly looking for volatily right now
rather mechanisc so ill go passive for the rest of the day

they just faked over 52
this is overextened imo
it will bring a selloff
even tho its completely against momentum id fade that
lets watch ---- no position

buyers got absolutely fkn steamrolled

Image

there is around 4 mil contracts in the open interest in this market right now
therefore every tick makes ~$50 million go between accounts
humbling thing to think about during such rapid movements



in other words
some people just ate their arse
haha
