hmmmmmm lol, I could use some of that lady after this week.
Short micro gold contract. Swing position
My trading coach, George Costanza, advised me to fade myself.
Cool! I just got off the phone with Courtney. She invited me over for dinner. I tried to get her to come to my place, but she is not a big fan of spam and that life size mural of Heather that is painted on my bedroom ceiling. I tried to tell Courtney it is a tribute to her - they look so much alike I didn't think she could tell the difference - but somehow she knows.
I have a type, so sue me!

My best trades were made off of the 15' time frame. They also were in oil. Until the Qs break from this range - there is a similar look to the last leg(s) of the daily compared to the 4 hour chart.
Once the break happens, and the volatility expands, it should also offer opportunity.
Drilling down to the 5' has always been a losing game, for me. Back to the 15' charts.
The original goal was to find trends, not create them. The latter never works.
In an effort to treat this fictional account like a real account I have decided to stop DAY trading!
For the remainder of this journal I will be SWING trading mini ag, oil and metals. My account is too low to swing trade the eminis at a comfortable level. Success breeds confidence. Once confidence is established I will move to the CL, W, GC, C and NQ.
After I have a consistent track record I am prepared to go live! This is the exact opposite of my normal pattern - switch plans and immediately ttade with real money on the line.
When Roosevelt said there is nothing to fear, but fear itself, he obviously had never traded.
