Net for March 8 = $-87.50


Observations:
Once I finally got on line (10:30) and missed the FE at 9:12&9:26 I should have closed up shop.
My trading rules say that if I'm not in a trade by 10am to not trade.

Mistakes:
  • not paying attention to trend and trading against it

Friday 9 March, 2012

Est Range =11.75
Est High = 1377.25

11:01
Slept in and started late. Missed FE=LE equal L1366.50 at 8:36
1366.50+11.75=1377.25
It is dancing around the HE and could stay here most of the day.
Trading this, at this time, is - so today's trade in ES just for the contest.

Friday 9 March 2012 trade 2

I made a second trade - I guess I'm not really happy with my progress towards my goal so far.
Lots of work - little results, so I pushed it a bit.

Trade 2 Day end gambling = $137.50

Monday March 12, 2012

Slow start - had to update charts to Jun contract for ES
got up late 5amPT - DLS started Sunday.

8:54CT
Dir 30 up to 1367
looking like a narrow choppy day.
3dma 9.75 and on est 7.25
ADX on 2 min<20 at 9:10am = chop zone
est H=1370.50
Actual:
High: 1367.00
Low: 1360.25
Range: 6.75


A retrace 75%=1363.25
L=1363.25 @ 8:35
H=1367at 8:42

9:15CT
I'm going to try the long side:
BOT 1 at 1363.25
Orders buy 1 at 1362 and 1362.25
Coffee break--
In the trade 9:42
Before trade 1 2012-03-12_0940 - aquarian_ian's library
11:52 lots more buys and sell to close
Trade 1 =$250

Corn trade = $125
Corn trade Monday 2012-03-12_0957 - aquarian_ian's library
bot 1 654.25 at 9:46:49
Sld 1 656.75 at 9:50:56
+2.50*50=$125
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



Looks like the short side would have been the better way to trade ES.


12:55ct
corn trade2 = $87.50
Sld 657.75 bot 656 =1.75 * 50 = $87.50
Trade 2 Corn 2012-03-12_1244 - aquarian_ian's library

ES trade 2 = $375
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


ES trade 3 = $0
Es Trade 4 = $250

ES trades $250+375+$250=$875
Corn trades = $125+87.50=S212.50
Both $875+212.50=$1,087.50

Total all trades = $1,087.50
End of the day $23,132.50 from $20,000 initial capital on 1 March

End of day:
Today was a "V" day. I was slow-footed from my late start, so my big challenge is to get to bed early enough so that I can get up on time in the morning. This means stopping working sooner and "leaving it til tomorrow:.
Starting with the short side would have been the better way to trade ES today.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
