Stopped out of SPX500, -3 points

Extremely messy price action right now, very frustrating.

Edit,
Closing the CL short at -3 ticks, it's just way to messy.

Had to try one more short at 1340, stop at 1343

Stop at break even, limits at 1337, 1334, 1331.

Edit,

Out at break even. That was the last trade of the day.

I think this will be another day of shorting for me, mostly based on the fundamentals. Will be a bit careful though since the short term trend in EUR/USD, oil and SPX500 is undoubtedly up.

Sold 1 contract at 96.60 with the usual stop of 20 ticks.

Sold another contract at 99.40 without waiting for 99.30 and a retracement. Stop at 99.60.

Stock indices making new lows, just waiting for EUR/USD to start dropping and this short might actually pay off.

Short SPX500 1341, stop at 1344.

I was 1 tick away from being stopped out of the first CL entry, so it's still alive.
