The first week of seriously trading this strategy is over.

In CL I'm risking about 10 dollars per tick.
In SPX500 and OMXS30 I'm risking about 66 dollars per point. Remember I'm trading CFDs so I can choose the size of the positions pretty freely.

Results:
-77 ticks in CL (9 losses, 4 BE, 1 winner)
-7 points in SPX500 (2 losses)
+45.5 points in OMXS30 (2 losses, 1 winner)

Total: +1771$

A pretty normal week trading wise, always nice to see at least some profits(most weeks I don't). Will continue next week doing the same thing, waiting for the big one.

CL trading at 98.70, no extra contracts this time. Stop is at 99.00

edit, moving the stop loss back to BE, giving this some space, if price gets back to 99.10 I'll pick up another contract.
