  2. Testing Times.

    After an eventful summer it is time to knuckle down and start testing the plan that I have been working with for the last few months. I had started this process in another place but circumstances outside of my control had my thoughts elsewhere. The purpose of the journal is to track how the plan I will be trading stacks up through back testing to forward testing and eventually on to sim trading, should the results be consistent throughout each phase I will be able to move into live trading with confidence that I have a thoroughly tested and consistently profitable plan. The backbone of my plan is the SLA/AMT so charts that are posted should look familiar, I will try to briefly explain reasoning for decisions on chart as I have a tendency to waffle. I will be testing 2 strategies side by side (might get a little confusing at times) one is a safer strategy but a little restricting when it comes to maximising gains (2 lot entry with one off early to lock in gains) the other is a little more testing (2 in 2 out AIAO) but allows one to hold on to a trend to its conclusion thus maximising gains. I will go in to more detail in the next post, regarding entry, management and exit rules along with a brief explanation of stats that were collected whilst studying certain price action behaviours. I'm still learning so any input or questions welcome. Gamera.

    Actions for the 14th. I've noticed I'm looking for trades all over the place and finding nothing but trouble for the effort.

    Actions for the 12th. Another day similar to the 11th, I thought the PA was indecisive but I persevered and tried to make something out of nothing.

    Thoughts for the 6th. No trades, I just could not click the buttons for a couple of the trades, after failing to take the opportunities presented I resigned myself to just watching.
  13. Testing Times.

    Actions for the 5th. Stopped after trade 4 as I felt I really wasn't seeing things well.

    Actions for the 4th. Its tempting to target 5 points as an exit as I hit it quite a lot but if I did that I would never have a bigger trade, 1 lot problems.

    Actions for the 1st.

    Actions for the 31st.
  17. Testing Times.

    Actions for the 30th. Its difficult the overcome the short term pain and realise the long term gain, I saw the potential upside as the hourly played out for a move back to the upper limit (post above). As T1 moved positive a part of me wanted to hold off moving the stop +1 and instead leaving it off the lows for a ret to confirm (I thought a deep retest was likely), at the same time I found this a little uncomfortable as I did not want to see a positive trade turn red. I am not entirely sure how to get over this hump.

    Actions for the 25th. At least I am consistent.
  21. Testing Times.

    Actions for the 24th. It's hard to keep cool in the face of such terrible results.
  22. Testing Times.

    Actions for the 23rd. Hugely frustrating day, picked my spots but my timing was off. I don't seem able to find a trade that will survive long enough for me to manage and test my patience, that in itself is testing me right now.
  23. Testing Times.

    Actions for the 22nd. I seem to be on a bad run, I'm really struggling with the opening minutes of the trades I'm taking and then get sucked into a little over trading.
