I wish you luck with this system I really do but and this is a big but please be careful I would hate to see you lose your whole account and trading without stops or some max amount you can afford to lose is very dangerious at least put a stop in there some where. If war breaks out somewhere and this things takes off you could be in big trouble in a flash.

I placed in a stop that I have a better chance at getting hit in the genitals by a meteorite then being hit, but for the case you suggested it’s there, for some safty.

Just went short at 96.92 with a buy at 96.62

looking for 30 ticks when you already have been 87 ticks in the red?

i dont wanna sound like a smartass, but i see no logic behind this?

Ok I made 380.00 but all because I made some rookie mistakes, and I shouldn’t ever trade with my phone app. As you'll soon see I didn’t stick with the original plan and got jumpy. I set a stop for safety at 97.97 but ready for this I placed a stop to sell 1 more contract, whoopsy. So I though I was out with a (1050.00) loss, then after the inventory numbers came out the price soon started to plummet so I hit trade thinking my positions were even but I was short 2 contract so when I went to buy them back I shorted 1 more contract (again in error) at 97.49 and then noticed I was short three contracts and bought all three at 97.20. And then made two losing trades shortly after. I’m going to take a couple days off and reassess. That didn’t take long. By the way the price came within one tick of my original buy point I set on the 11th.

Short 1 96.92 buy 97.20 (280)
Short 1 97.97 buy 97.20 770
Short 1 97.49 buy 97.20 290
Short 1 97.21 buy 97.46 (250)
Short 1 97.28 buy 97.43 (150)
Total 380
