#FuturesTrades September 25th Thursday 2008 Trade Log

 

Trade Posting Chat Log Info: My name is M.A. Perry (a.k.a. online as NihabaAshi - martial arts & Japanese Candlestick term) and I am the moderator of #FuturesTrades.

Simply, my job is to keep the peace and ensure #FuturesTrades is a useful community of traders from around the world that have gather in a virtual trading office.

In addition, I personally use the below chat log as feedback for critical trading information that's not available when I review my broker statements nor any statistical analysis of my trading.  To maintain the usefulness of the below chat log, all of my trades were posted in real-time within 5 seconds after entry or exit unless otherwise noted in the log. 

  To read behind the scenes details about my trades posted below such as explanation of position size, stop management, chart interval choice et cetera...click here.

Further, although I'm not familiar with the trade methods used by most members of #FuturesTrades, I use a rule based methodology (very objective) that involves price action only trading (no indicators). However, some of my trades are intuition via market experience in combo with many concepts from my rule based methodology.

  My own current performance record and broker profit/loss statement is posted at the bottom of today's log.

With that said, today's trade posting chat log is below and it contains trades posted in real-time by #FuturesTrades members including all of my own trades that were posted in real-time. 

Last of all, if you want the instructions for gaining access to our free #FuturesTrades chat room...click here.

<ItalianSharp> You guys surprised economic data came out negative???08:56
<+ItalianSharp> LMAO
<Nesi> buen dia all
<+ItalianSharp> Data will keep coming out real negative until Congress approves the $700B bill08:57

after that, we'll likely see something positive to "justify" the bill

just put the pieces together: 9PM last night, Bush goes on tv and warns congress to approve the bill or else we'll fall into recession08:58

today we have horrible economic data

<+pat255> N what stop u use for Es mostly?09:21
<@NihabaAshi> -4 points09:22

It's an emergency Hard Stop
<+pat255> k...thks
<@NihabaAshi> Thus, internet not 100% perfect :)
<+pat255> y looks like u take stop much early when see it is going the other way09:23
<@NihabaAshi> Yeah...took me a few years to learn that a Hard Stop doesn't imply I have to sit there and let it be hit :)
<+pat255> y ...:)09:24
<@NihabaAshi> Thus, if price action sucks AFTER my entry...

I exit the trade
<+pat255> good point ..
<@NihabaAshi> I don't sit there like a fool and let my initial/stop loss protection be hit.
<+pat255> oh no ...that is emergency stop
<+ItalianSharp> that's really hard to achieve Niha because most traders refuse to accept teh loss and would let their hard stop get hit...also because they refuse to accept a re-entry09:25
<@NihabaAshi> ItalianSharp...I think most traders make the "mistake" of correlating their Hard Stop with some sort'uv risk:reward setup.
<PapaJon> gm all09:26
<+ItalianSharp> agree
<@NihabaAshi> My hard stop has nothing to do with risk:rewards
<+ItalianSharp> the main reason i believe risk:reward is a flawed proposition is that out of the two variables you can only know one for sure: risk09:27
reward is something you have no control of
<@NihabaAshi> Has everything to do with how much of a loss I'm willing to take if my system, ISP goes down or emergency family distractions occurs while in the middle of a trade.
<+ItalianSharp> i can have a 100pt stop and a 200pt desired reward...so my setup may look good on paper
<@NihabaAshi> I determine that the worst case scenario is -4 points for me.
<+ItalianSharp> but what are the chances of reaching a 200pt target???
<@NihabaAshi> I think risk:rewards may work for those using a "scalping method".09:29
<+ItalianSharp> right, those who think in terms of ticks
<@NihabaAshi> Yep
<drt> mornin' everyone09:30
