Sold SPX500 at 1328.5, stop at 1332

Not happy with the entry but it will have to do. Will probably reshort it if (when) I get stopped out.

Short 2 more at 98.60. Stop at 98.80.

2 more at 1077, stop at 1080 (OMXS30)

Edit,
I would really like to see a major move down now, loaded up on shorts pretty much all across the board, oil, SPX500, OMXS30, EURUSD.

Out of OMXS30, -3 points...

Just hoping at least one of my other positions survive long enough to see NY opening.

Stopped out of oil, +500 ticks all in all.

Stopped out of SPX500, +41 points

The stop in SPX500 might have been too tight, still think there's a lot left on the downside. Well, I'm definitely done for the day here. Unfortunately the oil never really went wild but I still got a good chunk out of it I think.

Edit
Here's a chart of OMXS30. Stopped out right before the move. Painful.

Considering the profits made yesterday (had some great shorts in EUR/USD as well) I'm going to take the rest of the week off.

Results for the second week:
CL: +543 ticks/5430$(6 losses, 2 winners)
SPX500: +35 points/2310
$(2 losses, 1 BE, 1 winner)
OMXS30: -6 points/396
$(2 losses)
Total: +7344$


Even though I think I'm pretty much done with the optimization of this strategy I'd be happy to hear any suggestions or thoughts. Don't want to be stuck in the same way of thinking when there might be some apparent improvements to be made.I just want to mention that the results for the past two weeks are in no way typical of the kind of profits I'm usually seeing. I've gone months without a decent winner and I fully expect that to happen again.
