travis started this thread Making 50 dollars on the CL. EUR not tradable with my system.

Maybe gambling came about because I was losing 300 dollars on my ZN automated system trades.

FLAT: Got out of the gambling trade as I resumed control of my actions

travis started this thread Closed CL trade with 5 dollars GAIN. Maybe talking about it made me realize how badly I was behaving. Now I am flat again.

Hopefully will resist until the proper signal comes. Also I am upset because the goddamn maid cleans using a detergent that has such a strong smell, and doesn't get rid of that smell after cleaning. So upset about this whore...

travis started this thread Can't afford 2 contracts on the EUR because of the open (losing) positions on the ZN. Just 1 contract for today.

travis started this thread 1) time is 15.00 to 20.00 CET
1) it's your first discretionary trade today (you can't trade discretionary outside this system)
2) your entry and your take profit are >=10 ticks away from any pivot lines
3) you've looked at "correlated" chart (3 months to 1 hour): can't go long/short if most correlated markets are heavily overbough/oversold
4) the 225-period ma is in favor by > 10 ticks
5) the 15-period ma gets crossed by price (in favor) after being on the other side >= 4 minutes

Re: my journal

travis started this thread See? CL went my way after all, but since I was gambling and not sniping, I exited at its first hesitation, because I wasn't confident. The same happens with everything in life I guess. You could be doing something right, but if you're not sure, you'll hesitate and you won't profit from it.

So you might as well not act unless you're positive about what you are doing.
