Back trading Dow Tuesday 6/18/2024 05:54:00 PM GMT+03:00

Here in profit now trading lower on imbalance. 




Grains Monday 6/10/2024 05:04:00 PM GMT+03:00

Grains and Oilseeds are my favourite CBOT futures to trade. The market is slow paced, rather trendy and predictable intraday.




Overtading Tuesday 6/04/2024 11:26:00 PM GMT+03:00

This is how over-trading looks like. $MES proved to be not my king of trading instrument. Returning to grain futures as a slow paced and comforting. 




Micro E-mini S&P 500 futures Monday 6/03/2024 05:11:00 PM GMT+03:00

After playing for several months with Dow micro minis, I'm taking a closer look at Micro ES futures - $MES. Fast scalp before PMI data released.




Market Data Saturday 6/01/2024 10:12:00 AM GMT+03:00

It's the first day of the month and I purchased apart from CBOT also CME Market Data. This way I will be able have a look at MES futures.


 


Micro Dow Futures Mini - CBOT (YM.F) Thursday 5/30/2024 05:19:00 PM GMT+03:00
Here I go with my first trade for today. Entered short on a false breakout. Held through price bouncing up but never hit my stop. After price action retesting lows, closed as to secure some profit. 

This is an ugly trade as the whole time the price action was above entry and there was no enough bearish volume to go  lower. 

Will be watching the market now from side lines and might revert with an update later on. 

Scalping at open Wednesday 5/29/2024 05:19:00 PM GMT+03:00

Had a couple of short trades just before cash open and at very open.




Stopped out on a right direction Tuesday 5/28/2024 11:16:00 PM GMT+03:00

Here I go with a right entry but too tight stop on Micro Dow Minis. Entered after the first trading hour on breakout price going lower dragged by bearish imbalance below. However put stop wrongly below point of control for the time of trading and got stopped out. Right after that we had price action ranging at that level for a coupe of hours forming a new point of control there and afterwards price got breaking lower and lower.

Lessons to learn and my further entry and exit set ups to be:

Trading is endless learning and discipline. Consistency is the key.


Dow entries today Tuesday 5/21/2024 05:08:00 PM GMT+03:00

Here is the entry for today, following up price action from now on.

 Now after 30 mins or so of trading point of control moved to my entry level and price gravitating there. Still holding although price action not willing to go higher at this moment.




And in the end of the trading day, I can say that the market was too choppy, got stopped out with a loss. Looking forward to better trading days.

 




Thursday trades Thursday 5/16/2024 05:35:00 PM GMT+03:00

Entry on Dow break out at bullish imbalance. Already closed on exhaust.


And for the close or just before the cash close, I am showing the bigger picture. The trade's been closed too early and price had much more way to go up.

Another bad trade Wednesday 5/15/2024 05:10:00 PM GMT+03:00

I am continuing with consecutive bad trading day and wrong entries. 




Stopped on Dow long Tuesday 5/14/2024 05:18:00 PM GMT+03:00

 Just got stopped out..

and then revenge traded. 
Lessons to learn.



Patience and no overtrading Monday 5/13/2024 04:52:00 PM GMT+03:00

The hardest thing in trading is patience and reduce overtrading. As I messed on of the trendy days in Dow futures last week I got tempted to trade at very begging of market cash open.. 

Entered long on first move up and got stopped out. After that entered with a revenge trade on the short side. The result is one losing trade and another lose running. 

The revenge trade closed with some profit which is no good at all for my learning path as this would be a bad lesson giving impression that such trades work. 

So now I am at even for this month and starting from blank tomorrow. 




Choppy market Wednesday 5/08/2024 05:32:00 PM GMT+03:00

Entered long Dow on false breakout. The market is choppy as yesterday and I am out of the trade. 


And here is an example why one should have guts to hold the trade once entry made. 
And here we are two hours before closing. The price action pushing higher during the day.
