I thought about giving daytrading a try. I have a full time job but work from home 2-3 days a week so I can still trade. I am starting with $2,400 so I have 4 tries to make it. If the account goes below $2,000 I'll stop trading. I am trading off of 30 min charts therefore I do not have to watch the price at all times. I just have to look at it at every 20 and 50 minutes for the next 10 minutes. I will be buying pullbacks after a break-out. My stop is 20 pts and target 50-100 points. Here is the set-up. 13p Bollinger bands with 1.5 std. I have charts for ES and YM side by side. A close above/below the Bollinger bands and an expansion of the band confirms a trend. After the prices close above the band I like to see the price not pullback much for few more bars and the MA to have an upward slope. As the MA and prices get closer I'll put a buy-limit at the price of the last completed MA. My stop will be entered at the same time and it is 20 points from the price. Today I went long at 11256 (1 in chart) with a stop at 11236. YM came down to 11246 and went up to 11293. My target was 11306 and the price never went up there but after it was up 40 points, I moved my stop to break-even. I got stopped out at 11257 which basically paid for the commissions. I have watched the price action many times and 6/10 times you get your price. 2/10 times you get stopped out at a loss and 1/10 times you get stopped out at break-even and today happened to be that day. My target on the first trade is always 50 points and if the set-up occurs again then my target is 100 points. I am not into this journal thing and English is my second language so I apologize if this is confusing. I will answer any questions if you have. Here is the set-up.
