TopStepTrader Live Funded Trader

Crude Oil Day Trading November 15th 2016

Crude Oil Day Trading

Today was Day 1 of my Live Funded Trader with TopStepTrader (4th time around). I had a early trading mistake that took me down 6 ticks on 2 contracts.

I was able to earn 10 ticks on my 3rd trade of the day and get positive on the trading session.

With that being said, the real entry today was to be long at 4464 (roughly), but I did not have access to my tick charts until 8:27AM CST … so this was a trade I was unable to make.

So … what happened?

I wasn’t able to trade until today. I had to wait for TST to release my practice account which has all of my settings and more importantly the tick chart settings.

This is my trading chart. I had an error to start my trading session, but I was able to recover. This goes back to when in doubt get out!

And … that is exactly …

What I did during my trading session. Remember hindsight is always right, but there was a long signal at 4464 that did go to a 3P profit target.

The short trade went down 1P and then to the R2 line on a retracement before recovering and running me out at my breakeven profit stop.

Anyway …

I was able to net out 4 ticks on 3 trades … not the best start … hopefully tomorrow will be more fruitful.

I don’t want to say I wasted a day of my funded trader … but … it took a lot longer for them to release my stuff this time around.

We will see if November 8th (what the trade report is showing) VERSUS my real starting date of November 15th comes into play or not.

 

Good Trading,
