JMarsh Futures Trading Journal

I started a new spreadsheet for 2013 so I will post my positions for this year. I will attach my basic open/closed trades spreadsheet. This does not contain lots of detail but I'm happy to answer questions. I get most of my trades and advice from a local CBOT trader I know personally.

This week I opened positions in May cocoa, May oats, July soybeans, March Canadian dollar, March $10 Dow, and May feeder cattle. I have open positions short April gold and March silver.

@JMarsh, please confirm you are not a broker or a vendor.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

No I am not, personally! I am in Chicago and I do work closely with broker and trader friends. I know loads of folks associated with the CBOT.

Update for 2/26

I modified my spreadsheet for public consumption. I currently have open positions in silver, cocoa, oats, and Swiss franc. Open positions are highlighted in yellow. I closed a winner in gold and a loser in feeder cattle today. I had an S&P order go unfilled.

Updated Trade Record July 2013

Nearly forgot about Big Mike's! This is my updated trade record for the year to date. I've been doing quite well but in a low drawdown this month. I work with a trader who's being VERY cautious right now. If he doesn't see the risk profile he wants, he doesn't get an entry signal. I'm hangin' in. Gotta take your losses.
