I've built a large position. Stop is about to be moved to breakeven, which will feel fantastic.



(Took 10/16 contracts off the table, and moved stop below last dip)

Nice job IT7, very professional and somewhere an amateur trader wouldn't dare go--adding. It takes cajones beyond compare even though today is a perfect day for it. I was long ES and am happily flat at this point, but I hope for your sake it will give you the pop you are looking for.

Ok, just taking off the last 6 contracts. Mainly because I'm hungry. Happy trading all.

Working on developing a trading system. Looking for that holy grail of simple rules to follow to be wildly successful.

Used to follow a lot of currency pairs, multiple times a day.

Three goals I had: make 25 pips/week, always have the correct position size for my stop loss, and cut losers short and let winners run. Also starting to realize that there is a process of BECOMING a trader. Sounds straightforward, but that's a conclusion that I came to after a lot of struggle.

Lost $7,700 in a string of really bad trades (probably half of my account at the time), and circled where I smashed the pen into the notebook when it happened a few pages back in the journal (to remind myself of that pain and ability to make mistakes).
