    NYC Meetup - Part III

    Just thinking about this meet up! What a blast this was! It was amazing seen old faces and new ones! Can't wait to do it again!
  3. Greg, Nice job keeping your losers small!
  4. Good morning BBT! Happy Sunday morning! I love waking up early on Sundays and getting ready for the trading week. 

    Make sure to take out time today and review your journal for last week. As you know from my podcast on YouTube "Reflection & Review" https://youtu.be/yUzCnMbR3yI , it is critical to have a system that you can go back and review what you need to improve on for the following week. Tracking your main issues and highlighting them for improvement the next week is very very important. 

    TIME MANAGEMENT

    This week let's focus on time management. On Sundays, I also plan my schedule for the week, I literately put in everything. Below is what my week looks like almost every week. Now on all this empty white space I will fill in with things that I want to work on this week and get done. That could be time for your projects, maybe something you want to learn, studying and reviewing recaps. I will even block out 2-3 hours under "Me Time," this is were I will complete do what I want that is fun or chilled. 

     This can really help us manage our time and give us visibility how much time we have available. DO NOT WASTE IT. 

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend guys! Time to make this calendar look like a "Christmas Tree!"

  5. Yes it is a really neat feature they have added. You do not need to turn it on. The information is shown right on the montage. Tomorrow when a stock hits the halt scanner put switch to that ticker on your montage and you will see the new feature. If we get one in the pre-market or during down time in the chatroom we can bring it up to discuss.
  6. Hey Mike really impressive notetaking journal you got going! Putting in that work off the trading screen is huge for improvement. Great job.
  7. Hey guys, I ran into this great article about patiences over the weekend. As we discussed yesterday in the Pre-Market Show “Motivational Monday’s” segment, this week we want to focus on Patiences. What I love about this article is that it describes patiences in a way that most people don’t see it as. Patiences can be mistaken for just having to wait and this article talks about how is not solely that, it can also be when to act and how not to react to frustration. Is not a Day Trading article but so much can be applied to Day Trading and our personal lives as well. Here is the link hope you find it useful and let’s focus this week on working on our patients but knowing when to act and waiting for good opportunities knowing that our chance will come. Also delaying gratification by working on great trading habits oppose to bad ones that could have immediate gratification but long term damage.

  8. Good morning BBT! Happy Sunday! 

    Time to prepare for the new week! Let’s review last week and see what we can improve for this coming week.

    Short with trailing stop setup

    No need to set neg or pos.. Just enter the amount you want the trail stop to be and based on your position Das will execute based on your Sell or Buy.

    New Broker Announcement: CME Group

    I have not had an issue with them on SSR. I know they are aware of the SSR issue that was brought to their attention. No official word from them if it has been completely fixed. I also traded SSR this week and have not had an issue getting in or out.

    Show us your set-up!

    Nice machine Marek! Looks like a beast. I need to get me a travelling laptop. Right now when I travel I trade off my mac using Parallels. Not the best set up.
  15. Hey Greg, hope you did better today and that you were able to control the FOMO. This is why is so important to stop trading once you hit goal. I no longer trade after a certain time or after certain amount of trades just because I know I can easily give it back or make a small red day worse. Why bother when tomorrow morning we can get more opportunities to trade good setups. Nice Journal as well. Keep it up.
