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

Candle pattern only valid in 5 min chart

It will not that accurate in other TF - showed that majority use 5 min candle pattern.. But it will not make  me the champ with the golden gun. To be a champ, I need an edge.

btw.. for my current templates are:

1) Daily candle (standard)
2) 5000 volume - for SR (edge)
3) 5 min - for candle pattern (standard)
4) 1500 volume - for drawing lines (edge)

I called this.. D5515 setup , yaeh I know readers of this blog will laugh at how much I changed the setup since 2009...hahaha...even now my sierracharts file still  full of setting names across the screen from left to right that left ..after I deleted previous hundreds of chart settings

Profitable SIM today and yesterday, and I plan to SIM D5515  till it burned into my subcon mind.

This setup is my jungle now.

Burn baby burn. Take me to a clear path.

I will be ready to live NQ this March..one year after ditching crazy CL

The mystery of trading mind

The manual sides of trading (not robot)
Just for thoughts
Hundreds of sim trading is not like one real trading.
Dont get me wrong..newbie needs hundreds of sim tradings.
But once we get one RELIABLE idea, it need to be tested with real trading.
But if real trading is ended with failure, does it make that idea is wrong ?
Nope. Becos it ALSO depends the state of trader's mind.
AND ,state of  mind can be influenced by (charts) environments.

I found that my additional sma has changed my original idea in live market yesterday.
The origimnal idea will show the money yesterday, but it ended with failure becoz of 1 additional sma that not synhcro with my trading idea
So now I deleted that sma.
Same idea and same charts now... but now I will look for..

a) horizontal location of T8,
b) look for the 'close out' location
c) by using ema T8....dont look for pullback, look for current trend action.

NQ drop as expected..

Decided to use my robot only during fast market.
I sim my chart reading skills, seem to be competitive in SIM.
So I hv 2 methods, to be used depending market conditions.
I have to trust my methods in real mkt.
Probably live from Monday to Thursday and Sim on Friday.

So near yet so far

Marks on charts had showing that a trade is near, possibly a long
But decided to off pc  due to sleepiness ..and  put a closed mark on chart.
Open it in the morning, if i gave extra 5 minutes yesterday then i could double my account in one trade. Not losing the lesson, I know the signs and will put the autotrade next time

Jumanj Grail: The autotrader signal visible, fired, then went invisible...

Ghost trader trying to be clever and spoiled my fake money.
Solution:
1) I have to record video to show to my programmer.
2) I have to manually on off autotrader at certain choppy time for time being
Sighhh.

Testing SIM one little idea

One old trader saying, "let winners run" seems not doing well in current environment
I intrepreted that by setting  a far dream target and when it not achieved, manually changed it. In practical, I'm frozen - because I want to be objective and hands off the action.
So the results were near always negative.
It takes me a longest time to accept that fact.
How can I know which one is the winner ?

Another old saying  is "get it and run"
I set a realistic target price.
Result ,,won 2 sims.

This is I called "Target settings".
By using semi auto trader, my brain has extra RAM to think about this..
So after a brief thinking... I think 'target' is more important than a stop loss. Both are exit/END orders, Right ?
The diff....Target will give u profit, stop loss will you give a stop..uhh... LOSS
I think I will begin with the END in mind.

Khai Bahar - Luluh ( Shattered ..in English)



This Malay song is quite resonates well with my past life ..Currently popular in Malaysia...

I have been afflicted by chronic headache while I was studying in University in 1984/5, till today..thankfully now quite manageable..

The problem with headache is it is invisible and the University specialist told me that I'm a liar....Imagine answering tough examination whilst your head exploding...So I decided to quit like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs...Some moons later,,, I fell in 1st love with a damn sweet girl...then lost her... betrayed by my own trusted distant relative...After that, my life is in series of mishaps...my eldest brother jailed, my youngest sister died young, followed by the death of my old father , brought along with him his feeling of frustation with me not completing my medical degree.  I got work as a clerk and I managed to pay back all my loans related to my study..every single cents.

(Currently my old mother is suffering from dementia and ailments that every old people supposed to have)

Even in pain everyday, I decided to marry in 1997 with other girl with the same name... as I belief the pain  in my head and in my heart will slowly go away, healed by time....

Difficulties are quite norm with me...no wonder I keep on 'trying' trading that I started since 2009.

May Allah grant me,  his forgiveness.

Sorry for telling you all my past, sad stories. This sad song triggered my emotion..Emotion of a nearly old man :)

Commissioned a programmer to build custom study

Yesterday I commisioned a programmer to build a custom study.
This study is probably 1800th set up that I created and used since I started trading since 2009.
After I used it within a week, I felt confident enough to further programming it for entry decision.
Something that never crossed my mind.
The good thing is after Q&A with the programmer, I have clearer picture of what I expect from this custom study and it strength and weakness.
On my part of weakness, I usually 2nd guess my entry, so this custom study will focus more on entry.

I talked too soon ..-ve USD 112

To be fair to my system..
My system is okay..
But I failed to check the correct  "environment".
I'm human and old age probably magnified my human side.
Today I emailed one programmer to code my system
So I will have semi -auto trading system

The system will enter, I will exit thru simple bracket DOM.
The system will be the sniper, I will be the platoon that protect the sniper.

My brain capacity to think will be preserved and that will help me to focus on defense, stop loss while my semi auto system will do the offense.

A long journey has begin with a single step send click.

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
