#FuturesTrades November 3rd Friday 2006 Trade Log

#FuturesTrades is a private and free realtime trading posting chat room on the IRC Othernet server that allows traders from all over the world to communicate.

Click here for the instructions on gaining access to #FuturesTrades.

In addition, trades posted by members of #FuturesTrades in the below trade post chat log are by traders that do not have access to TheStrategyLab.com strategies except for NihabaAshi.

Fee-based clients of TheStrategyLab.com strategies use the private IRC rooms called #TheStrategyLab and #SwingTradingTSL.

Further, you'll find below the chat room time stamped text log of realtime trades (real money and simulator) that were posted by full-time, part-time traders from around the world and the timestamp is eastern standard time (est). 

Also, below NihabaAshi's trading blog like comments, you can read the time stamped trades (prices, entries, exits et cetera) and market discussions that sometimes contains trading tips or insights that are more useful than what you will see at any other futures blog or chat room.

Trading Blog Below is not your traditional trader's blog in the usual blog format. However, you will find informative commentary on a few occasions as time permits and such will contain trading tips that should help your trading as I attempt to sum up my thoughts as I traversed from the first trade to the last trade that was posted in #FuturesTrades realtime trade posting chat room.

Managing Emotions

Profit/Loss Blotter

It was another trading day cut short. This time it was due to severe data problems in both my charting program and trade execution platform.

At one point...I was see ER2 quotes that was 0.50 to 2 points too slow from the actual ER2 price action...not acceptable for trading.

With that said, I posted below in the trade posting chat log a direct link to some useful comments about managing our emotions (trading without emotions) while trading because such types of problems can cause early exits, early entries, late entries, late exits along with other trade management problems.

My profit/loss statement shown above in the PnL Blotter shows some s/r zones.

Further, if your interested in learning about how to use Japanese Candlestick charts expansion intervals or long shadows for designating your support/resistance zones (these are much better than your traditional mathmatical computed s/r levels)...send me an email.

Have a nice weekend and a safe one.

Today's results (real money and simulator trading) shown above are that of NihabaAshi only. To see his total accumulated points for the month of November...click here. To see results for the months of 2006 and prior years...click here.

Commentary by M.A. Perry (a.k.a. NihabaAshi)  

Note: Each month there are a few trading days that we consider to involve interconnecting key price action of different markets and such is represented by a particular type of price action from one of the key markets. You can view the charts and their clues that's associated with the key price action at our key market archives.

<pat255> gm all...09:20
<NihabaAshi> Good morning all.
<pat255> missed the 8:30 news..

gm niha
<yo> gm niha
<NihabaAshi> Yep...looks like the 0830am est produced some good volatility to setup a nice s/r zone for the price action after 0930am est.09:21
<PapaJon> gm all09:23
* codehead_afk is now known as codehead09:24
<ItalianSharp> niha, ISM non manufactoring numbers are coming up at 10am...these numbers are key after the better than expected NFP data...if the ISM non-manufactoring comes out decent, it could set the pace for some nice trend...if not, we could be facing choppiness for the rest of the day...
based on these thoughts, i am not expecting to see much action between the open and 10am09:25
<NihabaAshi> I hope it doesn't develop into "equalized volatility" between contracting and expanding price intervals.09:27
<RussellDaytrade> brut, setup some hotkey commands on IB, trying it out on the sim first...09:28
<NihabaAshi> Russell...how do you like the IB platform ???09:29
<RussellDaytrade> set buy on bid, 1 click, amd or hotkey, sell on bid, order cancels, and, buy and sell stops above and below market at preset price levels above and below09:30
<NihabaAshi>  Long ER2 @ 756.20 -> small size
<yvberj> Good Morning everyone09:31
<RussellDaytrade> its all i know N, so, it is ok for my purposes, likely better stuff out there, but it offers much more than i will ever undersatnd
<NihabaAshi> I have a slight bullish intraday bias at the open.
I'm also having some data problems :(09:32

<NihabaAshi> Geeesh...my data was so off...I didn't even know it had gotten above 759.00 price area until long after the fact :(
<szubaark>  Shorts NQ @ 1719 paper
<RussellDaytrade> N, do you think you may have interfernce from another open program on your system09:40
that happens on mine at tiems09:41
<NihabaAshi> I'm having more data problems :(09:42
<RussellDaytrade> at least on the charting portion, L1 quotes always stay current unless problems at IB
<NihabaAshi> Last time I something like this...it lasted all morning and I had one of my biggest losing trading day of the year (Sept 29th http://www.thestrategylab.com/092906Futu resTrades.htm :(09:43

I usually get one big losing day like that per year but not because of data problems as the main reason to get me going in the wrong psychological direction.09:44

On that note...will be back later to see if the problems still exist.

Very frustrating.

<yvberj> Just got screwed by IB. Went sht. ER @ 758. Data went dead didn't get filled till 757.1. Out @ 756.409:57
<RussellDaytrade> if using limit order, how can that be?09:58
<yvberj> I generally use Mkt. order.09:59
<deepitm>  Long YM @ 12059 10:00
<RussellDaytrade> there are no brokers in existence i trust any farther than i can throw them uphill
<yvberj> Agree 110%10:01
<deepitm>  Exited 2/3 YM Long @ 12070 --> + 11 10:02
<RussellDaytrade> good thing you cleared it, that spike just now may have 'gotten the better' of those less quick
<PapaJon> ymberj.. try using a limit with .. say.. a 3tick limit or somthing
<RussellDaytrade> just did a quick long on that spike, (sim), but no time to type and input between placing order and closing it, it as in and done and over while i was typing a reply10:04

<deepitm>  Exited 1/3 YM Long @ 12071 --> + 12 10:06
<yvberj> I use limits when the mkt. is moving at a normal pace (whatever that is). If it's moving quickly I've lost too many entries with limits.
<PapaJon> i understand
<RussellDaytrade> like i said, trying to train myself into trading outside the usual formats that i use, ie, chasing them
i have had good results in that regard with IB, using only limit orders, (buying ask, selling bid), but then again, i am usually not chasing the price, so that could make a significant difference10:08
<PapaJon> agree RD... for me.. my strats work best with limit or stop limit orders for entry.. if i get to poor a fill.. my analysis stats drop dramatically10:10
<yvberj> No data on ER & NQ from IB. Anyone else having problem.
<RussellDaytrade> yes
<PapaJon> thus.. for me.. using mkt for entry... is increases my risk too much..
I do however use mkt for stoploss orders10:11
<RussellDaytrade> data down on real, up on sim
<PapaJon> data ok here yvberj

Traders Accounting 

As traders we must treat our trading like a business if we are to succeed as traders and as a business. Therefore, waiting till the last few weeks March to prepare for April's taxes is not good for your trading and could put extra stress on your trading during tax month or the months that follow if your one of those traders that filed an extension.. Therefore, its best to be on top of your taxes throughout the year and Traders Accounting is a great resource for such especially if you want to prevent penalties or an audit several years from now.
<RussellDaytrade> 757.3 right now

back up
<yvberj> Back up here too10:12
<RussellDaytrade> data down on all
<yvberj> Just lost it again.
<szubaark> no quotes

<szubaark> ONLY YM quotes
<PapaJon> just lost em here too

<RussellDaytrade> thieves, imnsho

it'll be gapping up a buck and a half when it opens13:22

whos got live data?
<yvberj> Had to go out for a while. Good thing, I see Globex has been out again.13:24
<codehead> IB is back

ER broke out key level

reversal in place
<RussellDaytrade> the setup targets for the last setup just fullfilled at 753 an change13:25
we may be overslod enough for it to get legs and climb more, if so, it may, (emphasize may) keep going...13:26
i prefer to go by my models though, and call it good enough13:27
they hit right on time, i might add!, to the minute
<NihabaAshi> I still have data problems and will just sit and remain on the sidelines...no more trading for me.13:29

Data stalls and then spurts every few minutes.

<Brutus> I agree with Codehead, that the lows are in.13:45
When Es gets within 1 point of the lows I will be looking for ER bullish divergence to go long.13:46
If my model is correct there will be some chop with the final up leg after 1500.13:48
ES target 137113:49
<RussellDaytrade> time for somebody else to take the helm, i'll get excited again when it sells off hard and gets ugly again14:02

speak of the devil!14:03

and he appears

whaddya think brut, we see 751 agin this drop?14:05
<Brutus> No the low should hold
Yes in ER
Watch for another sharp ES leg down in 5 mins between 1366 to 1367 and a ER dump14:07
If ES breaks lows then I'm full off it:)

Mentally getting away from trading is much harder to do in comparison to physically getting away from trading when its time for some rest and relaxation. Personally, one of my favorite ways to mentally rest is to watch movies I've copy & recorded from the local video store via my Slysoft software that copies any copyright protected dvd's and cd's.
   Slysoft - Copy and DVD or CD
<Brutus> Time is up, looks like its not going lower14:15
ER did have a small dump
<RussellDaytrade> here's where the trend-players have the mental framework advantage, i have a difficult time piling into a spike14:18

the selloffs today, even as they hit lower lows, have diminished in intensity

relative to earlier today, yesterday, and the day before14:19

ie, getting sold out, for now, may bounce for a day or so14:20

unless, of course, we break lows with fresh impetus

don't feel like it right now14:21

<PapaJon> I just got back from jobsite meeting... hows IB data been since this mornings mess?14:23
<RussellDaytrade> had one more 'wool-pullin' session about an hour ago, right as it was taking off14:24
<szubaark> still comes in and out.. best not to trade. Definetly throws you off that kind of crap shouldnt be happening.
<PapaJon> gotcha.. thnx RD14:25

fortunately... it seems that it doesn't happen often
<Brutus>  Shorts ER2 @ 755.0 14:27

<RussellDaytrade> how do you prefer to trade PJ?
<PapaJon> profitably

<yo> good
<RussellDaytrade> i wanna trade like you then!
<PapaJon> i trade the er2 and try for 3 targets14:29
i have a couple of strategies... one for reverals and one for continuations of trend
well.. i need to get my head around it again... the last few months .. I have had some very negative distractions..14:30
<RussellDaytrade> yes, it takes focus
<PapaJon> and it has caused me to make mistakes in my trading.. thus.. got burned a couple times too many...
<RussellDaytrade> what signals do you look for?14:31
<PapaJon> just the last few weeks have I been able to avoid the "fear" psycological damage that has been done to me
<RussellDaytrade> thats goota be encouraging14:32
<Brutus>  Covered ER2 Short @ 755.1 --> - 0.1
<PapaJon> well. yes.. but I still struggle with it from time to time

Is probly the hardest part of trading imho
<RussellDaytrade> you use indicators? price action? other?
<PapaJon> primarilly price action...14:33

modified versions of stuff I learned from niha

froms niha's reports
<RussellDaytrade> look at todays chart you'all....ok... thx, will ply you for more as time goes on...
note how, in a general way, (understatement), it declined for most all morning and then soem..14:34
<yvberj> Those of you using IB. Is Globex still out for you?
<szubaark> UP HERE fingers crossed :((14:35
<RussellDaytrade> now, look at how it is 'balancing out' that 'time' and 'price' move of earlier today..

almost as if 'by magic'

it does that very regularly, trades in a balnced format, most of the time..14:36

<yvberj> Although I'm getting data. There is a message saying that "Globex is currently unabaivable for traders". So I don't know if I can trade or not.14:38
<RussellDaytrade> thats an old message, check the timestamp on it

they always wsend those out after the fact/ delayed response etc14:39
<yvberj> I did. It's 13:20, but it also says "refreshed 14.40"
<RussellDaytrade> mine was timed about an hour ago, approx 20 minutes after the outage occured14:40
<yvberj> I'll try it with just 1 contract see what happens.14:41

<Brutus> Just from todays pattern, not form the logical argument of it being oversold15:47
<RussellDaytrade> oil, rates , headwind
oeverhead resistance too
<Brutus> Lets see by thursday
<RussellDaytrade> i consider today a victory, paper trading, though i didn't extract much from it, at least i didn't have to suffer an all day onslaught, little better timing and entries, ie, got a favorable lift15:49
raed market better15:50
looks like that lift about 1530 materialized
it was a sneak attack, perhaps price holding above vwap induced buyers/covering15:53
<yvberj> That's it for today. Aggravating day due to outages, but still profitable. Have a good weekend.

Think Geek


I don't always trade nor monitor the market from my home office. Sometimes I'll do such from one of my favorite nearby Wi-Fi hotspot or whenever I'm traveling via using this little Wi-Fi detection gadget I got from Think Geek that will show more than just the presence of any nearby signal and its signal strength. It has a 12-character LCD that provides information on signal availability and strength as well as essential network information, including SSID, security status and channel. When multiple networks are present the LCD me to scroll through information for each network.
