For this reason, we want to ask you:

    Trying to wrap my head around the psychology of executing a predetermined plan (no thinking) vs. being a discretionary trader that executes more on feel. A lot of the material focuses on the logic of trading (stats, setups, etc.) but then there are sometimes references to trading based on intuition / right-brained thinking that seem to be a different approach. Is the goal to ingrain the logic of the left brain so it’s automatic (no thinking) at execution time? Or is it to train ourselves to trust the intuitive flash from the right brain that tells us to enter a position once we’ve mastered (or at least have a working knowledge of) the logic of trading?

    Techniques (trade management) and areas of entry have been the most valuable for me (your prior description of the retail trader entry was spot on- no consideration for the area to initiate a trade!).

    Thanks for the daily commentary FT! Very interested in your background as an ES scalper. Would like to get as much info, training as possible on ES scalping. I feel that scalping suits my temperament, thanks.

    conflict between the recommendations to watch one’s risk and yet allow enough of a stop to give the trade a chance to play out. Or take a lot of trades (smaller stops is the only way that is possible) and widen stops and targets because of the increased volatility of the current market.

    Market auction theory and volume profiling make my quantitative methodologies seem arbitrary, but for know it is my only known edge.

    “……the path to discovery is not impeded by ignorance, but by the illusion of knowledge.” Or maybe more succinctly, one can not know, what one does not know. To me the only absolute truth. Hard to live by though.

    Thanks for all your doing, Paul

    P.S. Just changed my Trading Level from Seasoned, but Cautious to Figuring Things Out.

    I generally freeze when there is an intervention by the central banks and/or outside forces. Unfortunately by the time I realize that it is a bit too late. At times, I know the price retraces back to the scene of the crime, but what I have learned is that it may take some time and it may not happen during the same week.
    Also, with futures, I feel like that you have to subscribe to RT software otherwise you are a bit in the dark.

    The fear factor. There is nothing to fear but fear itself but for raders who have struggled in past and are still struggling fear is a major factor that makes you take counter intuitive trades, fear paralyses you, makes you take profits early and keep losers longer than you should

    Is it even possible to trade the ES without using IRT and just using basic candlesticks on a platform like Ninjatrader?
    How to psychologically recover after multiple losses?
    Is it better to use Hard Stops or just watch it and get out after you can’t take the pain any longer?
    How does a trader develop a broader vision of the key volume profile reference points and begin to make his own hypothesis?
    Does a trader have to have an account with Stage 5 to gain access to the room or can we pay a monthly fee to gain access?
    How long does it take to learn how to use IRT ?
    Is there a training video somewhere or training manual on using IRT,
    Can a Prop Firms such as Topstep or any other prop shop use the S5 platform?

      Thanh…I’m sharing this every day in the Trader Bites. It is also covered consistently on AMAs. My best advice to you is to join the conversation in the Stage 5 Trading chat room where we discuss this daily. If you trade futures, I strongly suggest you become a part of this community. In my opinion, all futures traders stand to benefit from it and it from all traders.
