Today was a scalper's paradise. Just reward after Friday. Friday I couldn't get a winner to save my life. Today I couldn't lose. Well almost.

How did everyone else do?

I totally agree. I've been writing about the ES market profile. ES is ready to move and down is more likely. Judging from overnight, the move may have begun. A retest of the high would make a good short setup. I'm looking for a pullback to get short ES..

Here's the ES profile as it looked after Friday's session:



Euro moved too. I was well positioned in my currency swing trading at the end of last week. Was negative over the weekend but they all went positive today so I think the move is starting.

I'm experimenting to find the optimal stop & target for the markets I trade. For Euro I took 2 small stops and then I had one going my way I moved stop to my entry. Price came back, hit my stop and then dropped. It's still dropping. So the experiment continues.

To use a small stop like 4 ticks the entry has to be perfect. Which is very difficult in a fast moving market like the Euro.

Man those currency swing trades are all negative. Looks like the Euro is going to retest its high.

In the mean time, I took 3 bund trades today:



Basically the bund was balanced and I was fading the unfair highs & unfair lows. If you're unfamiliar with market profile I wrote a more detailed explanation in my blog.

Hey Paris -- Had a look back to see Friday 8th results...but didn't find them. Am I missing something? Would be nice to see posts of your bad days as well as the good.

You know I was thinking about that earlier. Some days I experiment and in that case I don't always post everything. But if there is interest I can do so.

On Thursday Oct 7 I did an experiment: Trade 7 markets at the same time. I am working on a setup and so I thought I'd see if I could trade it on 7 markets:

European session:
Bund
Stoxx
Dax
Euro

US session:
ES
YM
NQ
Euro
Crude
10 year notes
Corn

I was really surprised at the results. First it was much harder than I thought. I didn't have time to work on context so all I could do was trade what I saw.




I finished -$61.88 not including commissions. What really surprised me was that I was roughly breakeven. That told me to focus on one market, two at the most, and really focus and take these trades in context. and that's what I've been doing.

As I said earlier, I was totally off on Friday. What's interesting is a few others have told me they were off too. I don't really have an explanation but I have noticed two things:

- the bund is much more straightforward than ES - in short i love the bund! I'm even considering trading that during the US morning session and skipping ES.

- the euro is a great market but it's very volatile so one has to use more context & bias to try and pick the good trades

here's the results, quite bad really:



Monday was the opposite. I think I posted it earlier but I couldn't lose.



and yesterday:



So you're right, if I'm going to post i should post every day. so I'll try to do that.

Also keep in mind that I'm experimenting with ways to keep my stop at 4 ticks. That may not be possible with ES and if not then I'll focus on the Bund & Euro.
