Hello, I want to share my Journal here. IÂ´m trading since 2007 with no success. Successful on paper, but the emotions with real money are really hard to control. IÂ´m going to have 800$ and using a low margin broker. Using Ninja trader as Platform. IÂ´m going to trade the Russel 2000 future with 500$ intraday margin. IÂ´m going to have a very simple strategy. IÂ´m going to trade on the 133 Tick chart and searching signals on 133tick, 1min and 5min chart. My strategy is going long/short when the 5-candle SMA is pointing up/down. Also looking for patterns like bottoms and tops on the 1min 5min 15min and daily chart. I like to have at least a 50$ - 100$ gain on the day with only 1-10 Trades during the day. My stoploss is going to be 100$, with longs a break under the last low and with shorts a break above the last high (1min chart). IÂ´m going to look only for a very safe entry but this is goin to be a bit hard. I can only trade from 11AM to 4PM. My biggest problems are: Not using stops and then hoping for a turn in trend. Canceling stops when IÂ´m wrong - the fear of having a loser. If IÂ´m in a loss on a position IÂ´m freezing at the PC and hoping. I have some problems of identifying intraday if we are trending or ranging. It would be nice to hear some opinions from other trader who have or had the same problems and how they have solved them! IÂ´m going to update this here from time to time. If not then I have blown up my account.
