[SIZE="5"]ES update 30 min ees trade for 10/12/2012[/SIZE

this makes the 12 week or 3 months we have ran this pattern -we gained 21.5 points per contract for 43 points for the week -
last weeks total of 28 k plus 2150 for this week gives us $30,150 . we have now tripled our starting point in 12 weeks -
i generally dont trade the next 5 months full time , so i will stop this here .




will most likely restart this in feb /mar 2013-

I have been a member of futures.io (formerly BMT) for 76 days according to the notice that I keep getting at the top of the forums, since I have not posted. I finally decided that this is where I should put my first post since this seems to be where I have been spending the most time reading. My apologies for being a lurker, but I wanted to spend enough time reading through this before I started asking dumb questions that were answered already. I must say that this journal has intrigued me and although I'm not sure that I truly understand the methodology here, I can't seem to stay away. Creek, thanks for sharing and thanks for your diligence in keeping this going. I will continue to pour over the pages here to better understand and I'll add some questions and input when I feel I have something to contribute.

Thanks,

PJ

Creek, I was going to post my first chart for your review, but I found that I can't post with an attachment until i have at least 5 posts here at futures.io (formerly BMT). I guess I will have to wait until I post a few more times. Anyway, I followed the 6E today and marked up a chart according to what I have learned here so far. I like how it worked for me and I will continue to work on it. I did save the chart and I will post it and a few more as soon as I can. Thanks!
