I think I have found a leading topic for the webinar Big Mike had suggested. I would like to talk about my view of trading, system development and its utilization, approach to risk and importance of understanding market microstructure for ANY type of trading, from investing to HFT.

Very slow day, volume traded was above average but little movement during the pit session. I had few resting orders on and none triggered while I was away. Got one trade late, it moves 4-5 ticks my way and quickly reversed. Manually closed, old habit, but lost just 2 ticks (due to spread). -125 on the day. No more setups.

Am I right in assuming that LP has to be completed on same instrument that you passes combine on? I thought I read something somewhere along those lines. if that's the case it sucks cause everything else incl es and esp. cl were really volatile

Narrowly dodged a bullet today. I made 900 but after traded realized I did not roll over to August contract. I was wondering why volume is real low today and decided due to end of the month. It was low but still tradable. Then I found out it rolled to August. Hoag contacted me by the end of the day. They let me go with it but took away todays profits. I think it's fair. 3 days in seven to go. Easy to bring another 2500 with no sweat.
My live account is funded and I plan to start live testing tomorrow.
