  1. I’ve never been to a meetup before, are people eating prior, or ordering food at the meetup?
  2. Well this time you won’t have to worry about getting up for the pre-market show the next morning, lol Bobby N
  3. YES! Luckily, I am in Austin working on the hail damaged vehicles. I will be at the meetup. Very excited. Bobby N You’re coming too Mike? Nice!
  4. One thing I didn’t mention, in the “R” row under the green and red boxes you will notice some are highlighted yellow. If I managed my partials poorly, I will highlight it. Example, a trade reached 8R level, but I only made 1.5R on it. I will highlight it because I should have made closer to 3-4R. This usually happens when I take too big of partials too early foe no good reason.
  5. I think I shared a version that is “edit” not “view” I wanted everyone to be able to save the blank ones and use them, but it looks like it is saving changes people make. I might have to redo that part.
  6. I'm sharing my spreadsheet that I have developed to help me track my TradeBooks and visually show me what I might be doing wrong. I am no excel expert, I'm actually terrible at it, but I have been working on this for awhile. I'm sharing for anyone else to use as their own. Make adjustments that suit you, or use them the same as I do. TradeBookTracker.xlsx This is an example of what it looks like once you start putting trades in. I have a tab for each TradeBook I have, long and short separated. I use the Sharpe,Accuracy,Rs tab for all trades for the day. So if I had 4 Mountain Passes and 2 Parabolics, the first tab would have all of them added together. Below is the template I use for each individual trade review. I actually print every trade and put it in a 3 ring binder. I have a binder for each TradeBook with a long and short tab in each. Templates - Microsoft OneNote Online (live.com) Here is a screenshot of my OneNote review page, again, each TradeBook has it's own tab. Like I said, I'm terrible with this stuff, so I hope I shared this properly for all to be able to use. Feel free to ask any questions, or let me know what you have changed. I would like charts added like running P&L, but I couldn't figure it out. I would also like the top line to scroll down when I move down the page so I know what the columns are. You can just delete the indicators and put in the ones you use with your TradeBook. All feedback is appreciated and welcomed. EDIT, I updated with a link that is not editable, you will need to save a copy to use it.
  7. I have started a Fantasy league for anyone interested. https://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b1/114819/invitation?key=cc599f4cfdf373a8&ikey=5cb289323d34f4f2&soc_src=app-sh
  8. Here is a link to a BBT group. Everyone welcome. Password is bbt. https://fantasy.espn.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/2021/en/sharer?redirect=tcmen%3A%2F%2Fx-callback-url%2FshowGroup%3FgroupID=4093464&groupID=4093464
  9. Is there a way to make the “info” box that shows candle data whenever I click on a candle, bigger? It has price high low open close volume, I’m not sure what that box is actually called. I’ll get a pic next time I pull it up, but hopefully someone knows what I’m talking about.
  10. A little bit of everything today, 6/9, but only +1.7R, but they were all TradeBook setups, another successful day of avoiding the dreaded "NO Setup" 1MinOrbDown 5MinOrbUp, then 3 different 5MinOrbDown 5MinOrbDown MP PP MP
  11. Missed the first hour of trading today, had a Doctor appointment. Nasal/Allergy checkup only, nothing serious. Again today I was very disciplined with the "No Strategy" problem. I watched all day long and only took one trade! WFC Mountain Pass I did not like the lack of enthusiasm (Volume) after the second bottom, so I took a partial at the 50SMA. then the lack of enthusiasm once it crossed the 50 was another sign that this didn't have the juice that most of these setups have. I exited before BE once it lost the 50 a second time. Here is a trade I should have taken, but when I typed NKLA in chat, Aiman flipped to it and said "Nothing is happening here". I have to remember, this is my TradeBook setup, other traders have different setups and indicators they like.....this looked good to me and I should have taken it. Would have easily reached 2R on this trade. maybe more. Aiman doesn't care much about volume, he is a candle pattern genius though. I really liked the Volume spike at the bottom and the long lower wick. then when the next low happened, another long wick. Lesson learned. Solid first week back to a LIVE account. I had one bad day of "No Strategy" but have put some tricks into place to help with that. For the week I was -0.43R. Excited to take my new discipline trading into next week. See you all Tuesday.
  12. Nine trades today. All were TradeBook setups, but I did break two rules. Traded before the first 1Minute candle finished, and traded in the last hour. Two days in a row that I have stayed away from “No Setup” trades.
  13. 3 Trades today even though I was trading all day, that's a big step for me. Only had one winner, but all three were nice TradeBook Setups.
  14. UGGG Max Loss today -3R Here is how my open started. Yesterday I requested they change my trading permissions to regular hours only, no Pre or Post market trades. They must have f'd it up, because when I went long on WFC for a 1MinOrb it gave me a Trade Time error. It would have been a minimum 1.5R Trade, and maybe even a 2.5R trade. It sucks psychologically to start the day that way. Once I got CMEG to straighten it out, I forced some trades that were not setups. Tried to force these AMD trades, Short, stopped out, LONG stopped out, Long again with a couple partials UBER Parabolic Pullback, but I did not wait for a reversal candle.......Not good. The second entry was just 10 shares, I was testing to see if my account was working properly again. OSTK Parabolic Pullback, This is one of the main struggles I have with this TradeBook, Sometimes the 9onthe% is good R:R, but I know the 1Min chart is not steep enough with big candles, I still get tempted by the R:R it provides and enter. I need to be self aware during these times and pass. I should probably take the stock off of my screen completely if the angle looks like this, even if the (on% looks nice. I had 4 Trades today that were not in my TradeBooks, I was thinking of a punishment....I hate clutter, so I printed them out to clutter my desk up tomorrow, and be a reminder I don't want to add to the clutter with more "No Strategy" trades. Let's see if this works, lol.
  15. After that trade, I'm pleased to say that I sat at my station all day, and did not take another trade in SIM or LIVE. I consider that a good sign that my discipline to stick to TradeBook setups only is improving. Let's go 2021.
