Up $605 net. The result is reasonable but the trading behind it was extremely sloppy. Around 10AM I ended up jumping into ES last minute without proper preparation and in a very cavalier way, enter...

Up $911 net. Fully focused today. Big issue is that I am getting caught up in the details and end up focusing too much on smaller opportunities, missing the big turns. CL was a good example of...

Up $996 net. I had a number of solid, planned trades but unfortunately I took just as many emotionally driven trades with no basis. Trying to scalp and swing creates real issues. When I am holding...

For last 2 days Up $1326 net. Trading was focused on ES, CL, and NQ. CL was the net loser - 10 trades and only 1 winner, but most of the trades were scratches. That, alone, tells me there were a...
