I have been browsing around looking for a friendly forum to start a journal. Elitetrader has kinda been trolled out for years.
Is everyone here just daytraders, or would it be okay if I started a daily/weekly swing journal?
I can't handle more than a couple daytrades a day before my adrenaline gets too high and I can't stick to my system. Lol... What kinda works is to trade morning session, take a break for a few hours, and then trade the last two hours. Physiology in trading is a #$*#...
I am not sure whether all or most of the members are Day Traders or not. But my educated guess is 'highly likely' that most of us are. When I see the member's profile and the instruments of their picks, I guess they are day traders.
Have you tries YM instead of ES? ES is more stressful and tortures you for long to reach your target profit, I found YM is easier and lot less stressful.
Fow swing trading, I suppose you have bigger account size. If you can afford to have one like that and most trades goes to your favour, I support you to remain as swinger rather than day trader. Lot less torture! LoL....
I use to trade the Russel futures back in 2009, but my trading style has changed and works best with the way the S&P moves. TF loves to trend. I never cared much for the NQ! YM, Oil, metals, etc... Never bothered.
Best to just focus on getting a feel for a single instrument or two and mastering it/them IMO.
I will likely be trading more later this coming year and take a fresh look around at the different trading instruments again. Nothing has ever been as reliable as the good old ES and SPY.
