we took 30 trades for a target of 2 ticks
we ended with 29 (2tickers )
and 1 (1 ticker)
59 ticks total x 12.50 = 737.50 less 150 commish=587.50
took nearly 15 points gross today
38 +26+15 =79 for the 3 days using the edge

p.s. took 2 more 2 tickers up top here (32 for 32)

I had a question today in a private message -

the person wanted to know why i decided to 2 tick yesturday after catching runners the last 2 post series -

this was because in another conversation with a trader that was having a slow time getting started -

so i suggested that they 2 tick -then mark each trade where taken on the chart -

then at the end of the day go through and see what your total could have been if you would have held the runners and dumped the fake outs -

also the other point i want to show is with the edge -you can start to trade at any point during the trading day -

-i have the luxury of being able to sit here all day -

so with nothing better to do -i choose to trade all day most every day
