Real happiness lies in gratitude.

By expressing daily gratitude we will learn how to understand and deal with difficulties. It will make us pay more attention to everything that has been bestowed upon us rather than focusing on what we don't have. Happiness is a state of mind. You can be a millionaire and get anything you want in this world but still end up as unhappy. The trick of nurturing your own soul is to give thanks. The important points are to look at your past and give thanks for the many favors that Allah has already bestowed upon you.

It was narrated that Aa’ishah said: “When the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) prayed, he would stand for so long that his feet would become swollen. ‘Aa’ishah said: O Messenger of Allah, are you doing this when Allah has forgiven your past and future sins? He said: “O ‘Aa’ishah, should I not be a thankful slave?” Narrated by al-Bukhari (4557) and Muslim (2820).

O Allah help me to remember You, to thank You and to worship You properly.

shukr-dua

Allahumma A’inni Ala dhikrika wa shukrika wa husni ibadatika

65% and I thought i Passed Win Lose ratio SIM test

my SIm xperiment is over and i feel that I could trade live NQ after this.
4 years trading CL on off was differentt compared with NQ
Yeah I have another 7 rounds of SIM ..but I bored to do SIM...I prefer live trading
My win/lose ratio is 65% with the current set up.
In prevous posting my pass mark is 60%. Thats the 1st key

2nd key to win this crazy trading game is to consistently apply the trading rules .
And I managed to follow the rules via some indicators with price actions.
Price actions alone is difficult for me..becoz intrepretation of situations differs...
So how to trade if the intrepretations/situations keep changing/confusing my judgment ??
So in my trading mind ---
""The indicators are the the rules and price actions is the trigger""

The 3rd key is the bottom line -the cold DOLLARs  you may asked..
Well I dunno how to answer that becoz that is the market's job...

I hope I can get the financial freedom through 2 keys and let the 3rd keys hold by the crazy mkt

Trading the Lines seems all times legit + Stoch

"Waiting Outside The Lines"

You'll never enjoy your life,
Living inside the box
You're so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?

Rules and regulations,
Force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
It's time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
And looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
The time is now

I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I'm waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
Even if it's just tonight
How you gonna walk ahead
If you keep living blind?

Stuck in the same position,
You deserve so much more
There's a whole world around us,
Just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
And looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
The time is now, just let it go

Don't wanna have to force you to smile
I'm here to help you notice the rainbow
'Cause I know what's in you is out there

I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I'm waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I'm trying to be patient (I'm trying to be patient)
The first step is the hardest (the hardest)
I know you can make it,
Go ahead and take it

I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting
I'm waiting

I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting
I'm waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

You'll never enjoy your life
Living inside the box
You're so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?

Indys

After done several live trades, NQ behaviour is different than CL, of course...
I have to put again 2 indicators on my NQ chart -- DMI and stochastic.
There are no sins using indicators I supposed...
Simply becoz I want to trade like a robot, and no emotion, judgement, whatever (laugh, pls)

However, these indys also not accurate, becoz actually the trading is in price.
So I will put a line in chart price...
My objective  is to trade REPEATABLE PATTERNs when
DMI=SMI=PRICELINE (so 3 filters are in)

Once repeatable patterns achieve 60/40 right/wrong  % ratio, and ROR is 2x return/1x risk..
I will trade live again...

-use mkt order but gone wrong as it touch horizontal sr (to observe that potential horizontal is far away, has space)

-next -- to say a prayer Tawakkalillallah before trading.

I need to change venue of my trading PC

Current location is not conducive to trade, I think..feel isolated from family..

As my son growing older, I think i can trade NQ in front of them all...

I dont want to grow old alone while trading in the room..

Got a potential grip

After about 45 days simming and observing NQ, it seems I can got a grip on it.
NQ have one trait that consistent, dominant behaviour and I start from that dominant behaviour.
THis will make it easier   more potential to trade than CL.
Next month comes the holy fasting month for MUslims - the Ramadhan

Aladdin lamp ?

After I convinced my brain that actually I'm gambling, something weird happened
The gambling mind made me think that actually i bet on chance..
And chance is uncertainty...

and remember that famous post from Ziyad to Michael ?

http://www.eminiplayer.com/2009/06/learning-to-become-successful-trader.html

Well, good luck to me.

I had to admit that I'm gambling strategically

After near 6 years of trading I have to loose it a bit.
As the loses and profits sporadically recorded, I have to admit that I'm gambling - based strictly on results.
If based on my planning - this is not gambling, this is trading.

See the conflict ?

So let me make peace with my own brain.
This is planned gambling.
So, moving forward (ha ha ha , rhetoric !),, we'll see If I will get profit

-42 usd

DONT: Entered too late after a signal, it rebounded then followed the original direction
DONT: Entered at SR Lines - If it not break. it will rebound

Correct analysis NQ

Shorted but use joint limit order that not filled up.
Correct direction.
Next time for quick setup like this I will use market order (MO)
For second setup that the slower type I will use  Joint Bid order (BO)

Reasons for Ditching CL


1) Tight play range compared to past 3 years
2) False breaks becoming more common
3) Season changing - Active hours 9am behaving like inactive hours
4) Inconsistent market behaviour that require multi changes to strategy used.
5) Could be unforgiven for small mistakes
6) Becoming irrational and random that made university professors proud of themeselves ;)
7) Its time for "*moving forward"
8) Its becoming more political play.... and politic can ruin business


* Moving forward is a popular rhetoric for the time being in my office

SIMming NQ

I decided to ditch CL at the moment and trying sim on NQ and ES.
I found NQ brings more stable result than ES.
