I am going to slow my posts down, I don't see a real benefit for myself posting. Good luck all.

Doing a 50kTST.
Traded 7days, building incremental gains.
At 51,400 after day7. 1600 more to go for TsT combine.
5/7days positive/negative.
Have only used 2lots(of5) at a time max.
I trade about 1to3hrs in general.
Tighter stops have helped me stay in the game. Trades generally have to be 2:1 reward:risk, greater than 4:1 is plausible at times.

Hoping to finish in the next 7 trading days, before I get the monthly charge. I'm usually happy with a +200 to +500 a day, and for this combine I am planning to just take profits at times vs having a winner go breakeven.

Now that I have a surplus I will now consider adding contracts to winners.

Great job, nice work!

Is this in CL?

Black Friday is coming up, considering another cpu and nt license. I run a nt7 on one and nt8 on another. Thinking of adding a third cpu and license as I regularly have cpu or nt issues. This would give me 3 cpus to enter or exit from.
I do not need the full gamut of tools, just the normal nt8 stuff.

Likely scalping early in the week and trying to scale in midweek for good moves. Hoping to close out tst this week, I believe I have till oct10 till I am charged again for tst.
This week I focus on
"1 trade at a time"
Managing tight risk.

Today I let a few singles turn break even. Not happy about that. The total exceeding $1000.

I had some things to work out on my orders and I figured it out. Adjusted some exit strategies.


Mon
+90
Tues
+390

I have about 7 trading days to go till I rebill.
I will take my time.
I have about 1110/3ooo more to make my TST combine goal.

I want to hit a few more singles, before I try for runners. I let 3 runners go and could have easily made more. I am feeling singles are safer and higher frequency. I could see myself running 4 singles, and 1 runner as full size. With my singles being 1.8:1, and my runner being +4:1 reward to risk.

I'll post my TST dash soon.

Looks like you're doing really well after the switch to bonds. You don't find it too boring after trading CL?

No.
I do watch and sim other markets. But as for consistency, I am much more consistent as far as my STOPS. I know when my idea is on the wrong side of the market. This clarification is important for me and much harder to see in cL as the wiggle room is bigger. More games are played by algos and traders in cL as it is thinner.

Are we doing this as a business or entertainment, please?

Is it exciting for Jeff Bezos as routine order after order comes in....or is it mundane yet revenue....
