NinjaTrader 8 Struggles – Aug 19, 2020

I AM GRATEFUL AND HIGHLY BLESSED! I AM FOCUSED!

PREMARKET ROUTINE & THOUGHTS

  • Super quick yoga/meditation session – like 5 mins
  • busy morning with wife’s 0830 time
  • had to update maintenance about apartment issue last night
  • running a little late to actually go live – past 0915 already so…
  • LET’S GET IT! 😊

Remember the setup DOES NOT have to be PERFECT.

TRADING NOTES

10:06 – cancelled that order due to price action. It did what I wanted it to do before it pulled back to my entry short.

10:07 – Still working to get over the frustration of missing the trade earlier at 11400. Can’t get caught up in FOMO

10:09 – Horizontal line I drew there based on my fib extension lines

10:10 – Order place there by selling the bid waiting for the price to trade in a location where I would have had a stop limit order placed.. not my ideal way to trade. Stopped out

10:12 – 2 losses for the day. Done for the day as a result. However I just realized the mistake order I placed earlier on the DOM was in Sim mode so it didn’t affect my Leeloo account. Only 1 loss today in the Leeloo combine with 2 contracts for $-32

10:17 – NT8 Control panel visible

10:24 – At this time trying to figure out the DOM or a better way to trade.

10:28 – Sim order trying out the Order Ticket in NT8. Not going to work because it doesn’t have a section to use my ATM Strategy

10:30 – SIGNING OUT. TRADE IT EASY!

  1. hello, can you pls share your Sierra chart exit strategy? trying to build out mind and looking for ideas, inspiration etc

    1. Overall, it’s a 5-1 Strategy with a 10 point (40 tick) hard stop loss. When the trade goes 40 ticks in my favor there’s an automatic break even trigger, moving my stop loss +5 ticks. I can make a video if that helps.
