About Me

Who is Helixtrader36?


As I mentioned in my first post, Welcome Letter, I am using this opportunity to be completely transparent with my process and journaling to the next level by publicly posting my process and journey. Because I am more interested in how going through the act of all this will develop me as a trader. I desire to go further than anyone has attempted, so I can freely navigate all markets and conditions. 

To do this, I must go deeper into this discipline and develop more psychologically and intellectually. How is it that so few traders can make money or that so many lose money? Or better yet, how are so many consistent traders successful yet have very different trading strategies? The solution is within their mindset and how they developed. I need to understand it, I need to experience it, and I need to innovate so that I can achieve my dream. Being able to soar as a trader is one of my dreams. I have many others, but I must accomplish this before I can even grasp the others. 

I will always be a lifelong learner. Becoming a successful trader will help me care for my family financially, but I want to continue to grow and better myself to be who I need to be. Life has such beauty, and I am grateful for many things.  So join me as I traverse my path to become a consistently profitable day trader, and who knows, you might gain some insight for yourself on how to further progress through your own journey and reach your dreams, whatever they may be.

Weekly Review: 5/8/23 to 5/12/23

  My Weekly Review Process OVERVIEW I started the week with little to show for it on Monday . I played what I was supposed to, but my thresholds were hit, and looking back, I got in too soon and sold too soon. Other than that, I was dead on with the play. It was more of a timing/patience game. Which is hard to work on when I am still trying to gain confidence. Tuesday continued to provide adamant resistance to success. I was 100% ready for opportunities, but the follow-through on my plays left much to be deserved. Nonetheless, I played what I needed to play and left it at that. Frustration was definitely building up here.  On Wednesday , more testing of patience and timing. I still need to improve in achieving profitability, but I am on the right track with my chosen plays. The opportunities were clear, but my mindset and self hindered my success. I see it more clearly than ever. Relinquishment will help correct this, and patience and mindfulness will help stabilize it. The day ended


  Updates on Future Posts MOVING CONTENT TO X (Twitter) I will no longer be that active on my webpage but will shift to my X account.  I have learned and grown from my experience writing blog posts/ recording in my online day trading journal. At this time, I feel a stronger pull to change the medium by which I document and share my progress. Change and growth is an ongoing process.  I look forward to the future.

Day Trader Behavior Cycles: The Foundations of Change

  Reward and Punishment Cycles THE QUESTION What Behaviors Do I Repeat? As I stepped into the realm of trading full-time, I quickly realized how psychology and specific behaviors can positively or negatively affect trader performance. Beginning trading full-time in one of the most hyper-inflated markets and one of the best bull markets in history, I witnessed very volatile and drastic moves. Having been learning about the market on and off for a couple years before full-time immersion, I was approaching the market cautiously. But due to the highly bullish nature of the market, it seemed my cautious approach was nothing more than a hindrance. As I started participating in the market, I slowly fell into a false sense of security. I knew this wouldn't last forever, but the opportunity was too great to not push and be a part of the crowd. People made lots of money regardless of what or when they bought. Those who held and hoped were rewarded handsomely. As the days, weeks, and months w
