+ .9 TF July 31 2012

Returning from trip to the city of the CME and "The Bean" (a must-see sculpture), I traded gingerly. Missed big runner at opening + 2 minutes. Felt left out and wanted to trade NOW. But controlled myself trying to feel like "there's always another trading opportunity coming up." (Easier said than done.) Everything aligned for a small trade at the open + 10 minutes.

I've likely got it wired in my head that things need to have a minimum level of complexity. If a thing is too easy it's not right, good, correct, or worthy. This is balderdash. Some great things are easy, some are difficult. When they are easy, take them easily. Oh, that's so hard for me, I believe I'm observing. But observing is the first step towards fixing.

For example, I accepted an invitation to attend the Houston Texans training camp held yesterday. It was awesome. But I couldn't keep it easy. I had to have my picture taken with three cheerleaders. I made sure my wife found out about it and a brouhaha ensued.

Tuesday a sweet fat TF trade opportunity presented itself. I didn't take it...because it was too simple? I don't know.

Anyway, a sweet fat TF trade opportunity presented itself today. I took it. It went to target. I am finished for today after 20 minutes of prep work and 4 minutes of trading.

TF Aug 9 2012

No trades today. Market moved with low volatility and volume. A bias for a short kept whistling in my ear but I fought it off.

Succeeded in neutralizing my bias this morning...at least I think I did! Thanks to a futures.io (formerly BMT) member for first helping me realize one MUST control bias in day trading futures!!! I was tempted to take a pre-market long but I felt the risk was too high. (Maybe later when I'm more experienced I'll take those.) Waited for the signal, a big signal came, and voila.
