    Oct 18 trades on AA. Today was a rough day, as I took three trades, two of them without a Trade, Risk, or Profit Taking plan. I made my daily goal off the first trade, so if I was live I would have executed the last two trades in sim. However, this is a perfect example of the market rewarding bad behavior have I broke almost all my rules prior to entering the trade. 2018-10-18 12-13-13.mp4

    October 17 trade on AMD. I beginning to realize AMD and I are really good buddies. Got a late entry but my profit taking was where I wanted it to be. If I had been patience, If I had not hit my goal for the day I could also have taken a 15 Min ORBD on AMD. I noticed while I was doing my re-cap. Couple more weeks until I go live. 2018-10-17 12-08-11.mp4

    Thanks Carlos M. I agree hotkey mistakes and ruin your day. I now have added unlocking my montages to my daily checklist before the market opens. I would think this would seems natural to not forget but I have done it a couple of times the last two months.

    October 16th, trade on CGC. I did not have time to make a video but I have included the screen shot of the trade. I did not execute my entry well as I lock my montage in the pre-market and forgot to unlock it. By the time I got it unlocked, the stock already moved down. To make matters worse, when I did enter I made a hot key mistake and went long instead of short. I quickly got out of the bad trade and re-entered with the correct hotkey. I was able to adjust my profit taking plan quickly and took profit at the previous day close and just below the moving average on the 5 minute chart. Overall not a bad trade.

    October 12th trade on AMD. Took 2 trades on AMD both were green. One trade was before 5 minutes and the other was right after I got stopped out at break even on the first trade. Ended the week with 4 out of 4 green days with only having one day of true over trading. Win Rate% - 68% (slight decrease from last week but tolerable) Average Win Ratio is above a 2:1 (Slight increase from last week) Net Equity curve is Horizontal which is good considering I am trading 100 share sizes. Gross Equity curve is upward 2018-10-12 15-45-51.mp4
  11. Right now we have 7 who have confirmed
  12. Depending on the number of people coming I was thinking we can do a restaurant, Bar & Grill, or Sports Bar in the gas lamp district as it is close to the trade Ideas summit. I was planning locking on a location Monday Evening that way people have time to post that they are coming and any recommendations over the weekend. I was thinking around 6:00 or 6:30 pm for the meet up time. I think that would give everyone enough time to travel after work or from up north. Does this time work for everyone or should we push it earlier or later?

    October 11 trade on AMD. Did not have time to make a video as I was traveling home. Below is screen shot of the Christmas Tree of over trading I did on AMD. I have a tendency to focus on the 1 minute chart and then start chasing the moves. The big thing I took away from today though is that I finally started catching myself thinking that I know what the Market is going to do. A big no, no as it only takes 1 trader to change what is going to happen. I have been working on this over the last couple weeks, thanks to the book "Trading in the Zone", that when I notice myself doing this I immediately start to analyze the opposite thought. I.e if I know the market is going to go up, I start looking for indicators that say the market is going to go down. If you look at 9:45 I took a 1/3 off and felt that I knew the stock was going to reverse since is was so extended. I immensity caught myself and started looking for indications that it still could move up on the 5 min, 15 min, and daily charts. I quickly noticed that the stock was still making higher highs and higher lows on both the 5 min and 15 min charts. I decided to stick with my trade plan and got out at my profit target of 26. If only I could have done that process with the previous 4 trades it would look much cleaner and not like a Christmas Tree of buying and selling.

    October 10th trade on AMD. 15 ORBD. Entry was bad which caused more errors when taking profit. 2018-10-10 18-20-39.mp4

    When to Quit Day Trading?

    Great post, I really like your statement at the end, "what do I need to change to succeed?" I going to add this to my Trade Journal routine as the last thing to do before closing it out.
