Hello all,

I've been trading Emini ES for about 5 months now and would like to share everyone my daily results and hopefully get some helpful inputs. I failed miserably trading discretionary and had switched to mixing with automated strategy which was inspired by Big Mike's Automated Strategy thread couple of months ago, thanks. I feel that Money Management is important and I will focus more on this area.

ES 4 Minutes Chart
Stop Loss: 50 ticks
Profit Target: 100 ticks
Entry Time: 9:40-10:00 based on Economic Data volatility level
Exit Time: 4:00pm or Manually

Trade #: 1
11/19: + $1,150 @ 4 contracts

ES 12-09 Sell 4 1094.75 11/19/2009 9:39:41 AM 6412:35176032TN0097415 Entry 4S 11848260 Shorty 12 1

ES 12-09 Buy 4 1089.00 11/19/2009 11:30:45 AM 6412:39564824TN0282447 Exit - 11861976 Close 12 1
