just tardes

In this journal I plan to show some of my positions / trades and detail the methodology and thinking behind them. Any reasonable person is free to comment but please try and keep the gifs and memes to a minimum as this is serious business.
Actually, post anything you like

darktone started this thread Although ive many many positions in many many many instruments im gona kick things off with my current foray into wheat

I like short wheat because it pays me some interest if I hold it, so today I added to my existing position of 1300 units. Loading up with another 1300 units for the weekend, my second position for a total size of 2600 units.

Plan the trade, tarde the plan.

Looking at the weekly chart you could be forgiven for thinking that wheats at the lower end of its cycle and shorts here are a bit of a suckers play. But its not because I think thats its not, and thats all ive really got to say about that.

darktone started this thread Just puked up half my wheat .

Now I know that some of you out there might be thinking 'what a fackin wonker'! But I know something you dont know and that theres two good reasons for me closing the second clip of wheat here instead of sticking to my plan. The first reason is that the position went into a bit of profit so try as I might I couldnt help myself but take it, cos im a winner trader see. The second and most prominent reason is that im getting killed in some of my other positions on this acc. Dax in particular, ill go over that one tmrw so I might do it later tonight

Please if theres any questions you might like to ask feel free

I hear the merchants are running wheat up to $6 after they saw your trade... I hope you plan on adding to it all the way up? Those pesky merchants would actually be doing you a massive favour so you may as well take advantage of it

Im sure thats the case brewski. I have them lined up and baited with many many many 0.0074pp bets, almost feel sorry as I maneuver them into my crosshairs. Full commentary will be provided of course in due course with detailed run downs of my view on the play. Gonna grab some more weekend zzzzzz mate, was a frantic afternoon of button pushing yesterday covering anything that showed me a profit. I am a winner only

Thanks for your support gents

Ah yes mike, I hear its a common problem across the land. My advice to you, especially when going for the big demo 2 real profits as you were, is to cunningly bait your broker with hundreds of tiny tiny bets placed around the last price. Limit orders/stop orders, it doesnt matter much, but this will have a devastating effect on your broker and how they make their prices, and it will send them a clear signal that you are not a tarder to be trifled with!

Hope this helps some
