Aug 16 Trades

Choppy market in both CL or GC, but managed to catch a couple. Demonstrated the value of having risk/reward of at least 1:2. Was up at the open on Gold, then gave all plus back in Crude...Frustrating, but fought my way back by following my rules and not trading "scared". Took the setups as they presented themselves and managed them. Not a great day with the amount of trades taken, but any day in the BLACK is good. My trades follow.

Aug 19 Trades

Traded a lot of contracts today, mostly in Gold, but a few in CL. Never really caught any runners, but scalped my way to a successful day. More importantly, I did not hesitate to take trade setups as they presented themselves in accordance to my plan. I felt I was prepared for the day mentally and emotionally. I'm back in black with some cushion now, but will still only take single and double lot trades. My trade report follows.

Aug 20 Trades

prepped for trading with a look at charts for support and resistance levels in both CL and GC. Longer timeframes ie 30,60 240 were long in GC so was only looking to take longs. They worked out well and did catch the breakout runner I was trading for....approx 46 ticks. NICE! Did not do as well in CL. Oil was going down in the early trading and I didn't catch any trades for any real moves. The bottom was put in at the support level of 105.2 and also defined by a bull convergence in momentum. Moving averages crossed and further confirmed the move up. However, I started taking some shorts, initially....got my head out of whack and when got on board the longs didn't hold them for the run up almost 80 ticks. All in all, not a bad day $760 net, but most of it in GC. I need to take the signals in CL and let them work, might need to use a bigger stop, been getting stopped out only to see trade move in direction of trade.
Trade report follows

aug 21 trading

Rolling along. Another decent day. Was up then pulled back in profit then got most back. Traded more successfully in CL today. I am trying to concentrate more on CL, but GC presents more trading opportunities. What to do???? Gave CL time to figure out what it wanted to do after EIA report. I have what is called a Z play where after news' initial move wait for a pullback then go with the trend of the initial move, some call it a 1,2.3 play where you go with move 3. Either way it worked out well in CL. My trades follow

Aug22 Trades

Did it again....started taking losing trades and then "rushed to make it back". only to lose more with stops and emotional trades. Anyway, stopped trading before blowing out the account and getting locked out. Showed a minuscule amount of discipline. LOL. So I lost $1900 plus, limit is 2000. This was all done by 8:22 CST. Then I turned on my live account simulator and traded by my rules and made almost 2500. Lesson learned: Wait for your setups....then take them, take the loss if that's what the market presents. Do not try and force the market to do what "you" want. It will almost always do the opposite (the market has no emotion). With all that said, going forward to complete this combine. I need to trade for a rollover (which means I don't pay for another combine). The profit objective of $8500 is out of reach with the remaining trading days available. So I will trade to make CL profitable and press on in the next combine. My trades follow:

Aug23 Trading

Somewhat stuck to my plan of trading CL. However, did not wait for the setup that I am used to. Jumped right in and built a position only to close it for about flat, made a couple bucks. The reward was no where near the risk taken. I did wait for Gold to pullback to my entry level after a buy signal and made a couple bucks. Was ok only because it was in the black. My trades follow.

Aug26 Trading


Got on board GC today, traded well, following my rules. Started in CL with a trade, that stopped out, but stuck to my stop and target. Next trade in CL was a winner....not as big as I would have liked, but traded for flat. Then waited for market to open up...and never really got on board the moves in either direction. Was a positive day, which is good. Tomorrow is another day. My trades follow.
