The purpose of this journal is to learn and help others learn at the same time. I don't trade full time, but my job allows me some spare time during the day to pull up charts. Every now and then I'm able to take a day off too and be home all day. I've studies the markets off and on for a few years. I've gone through the newbie phases of buying systems, tinkering with indicators, etc. I have started getting a little more serious over the past year or so. I have read through the AHG thread several times. I have also read Al Brooks' Bar by Bar. I am currently looking to further my understanding of how the markets move by beginning to study the work of Wyckoff. I think this may give me more confidence in a lot of the trades I take. I am always open to criticism and encourage others to participate. I like both the AHG and Brooks style of trading. I am hoping to figure out a way to find a hybrid of the two along with adding some volume analysis - eventually. I am basically looking for intraday scalp trades on the NQ or ES based off price action.
