I decided to try trading DAX futures for a period of two weeks. Should this period be profitable (let's say EUR 1500, trading 1 contract), I will consider a go live. I hope this journal will bring some discipline into my trading. I regularly suffer from overtrading, taking profits too soon / too late, moving a stop too soon. I also hope to exchange ideas and get some inspiring critique with/from the readers of this journal. I'm using the 5 min chart to trade from. Although IB's charts are ugly, I find they have the advantage of being able to display the last two days on one screen. My trading is price-action based. I will draw some horizontal lines for S/R, sometimes a trendline; another thing I use is daily pivots. Thats about it. Rules? Maximum stop between 5 and 8 points. No more than 3 trades per day. R/R at least 2:1. At the end of every day, I will post trades. Here you go, Phill. Good luck!
