No good trades; took a couple of bad ones

Thursday, January 16I did not have i any breakout so I tried and faed at a couple of short term shorts of the bonds using MP. They did not work out well and I am down 1100 with commissions.

I need to stick to my system.
I did not trade Friday.

Postive results but...

...I am not very satisfied. My general trading method is to set my trades after the ETH close.

I had several setups though most were pretty far from previous day's trading. The Bonds (long) and Crude oil (short) did not trigger. CL got to within one tick on the sell side (a skirmish won).

British Pound: Trade triggered at the open and there was a small gain. I set in a little more profit when I turned off the screen and ended up with + $156.

Nat Gas: The order was placed (2.910 STOP) before the night session of the first bar shown below

This morning I had a small paper gain and moved my stop to break even. I then tried to press with another contract on sell Stop and turned a small gain into a small loss. ($80). What is clear after the fact is the lower bound on the VA (-1/2 sigma) was continuing to decrease even with the small price recovery at the 6;15/6:30 bars and should have been held with the existing stop.

Comments?

Gold: Again, the order was placed before the night session of the first bar shown.

When I looked at 5:00+, I did not have a stop or profit target in place. The trade had been up some 800+ so I set my stop near break even (where it would have been if I had use my ATM for gold) and watched as my paper profit eroded away. Again, a stop of (-)1/2 sigma would have resulted in a generous gain. As it was, net gain $40.


Comments?

Net for the day: $116 BC so about $100.

Does anyone else use a similar entry method? I would like to hear from you. Do you have a journal?

Lost $57 today

There were no trades over night. I tried a couple of different techniques,

I sold Bond early this AM intending to flatten before the ECB news conference. Alternated between a few ticks up and down and eventually moved my stop in tight and held on. I lost 187 after the announcement.

I shorted CL in the Early morning and though I sold a little early, I booked $640.
Then tried to reverse and go long and lost $510.

I need to work on this second entry. I am satisfied with the first two even though the Bonds lost. Not satisfied tryin g reverse the CL..

Traded overnight

Overnight on stop sold 6E 03-15 stopped out before I got up (156)

Overnight entry Long ZB 013-15 @ 150 11 sold at 150 22 for 344
Overnight entry Long GC @ 1284.4; sold at 1288.3 for 350

traded several ES contracts for 137.
I did better with these short entries.


Net today 415 BC.

Tomorrow I won't put my breakout trades in until morning when volume picks up at or just before the RTH.
I have potential trades on the yen (OCO), NG (OCO), Sell BP. Sell CL.
I have a second set of trades that will require another look in the morning.
Buy GC, Sell ZB.
I have a price limit in mind to BUY ES

Happy trading.

All the breakout were losers...

For Jan 28 non of my trades worked.
For give me for whining but they would have worked big time the next day. I also dropped below the starting value of this account (new in September).
My ES limit was also a bust.

I have not traded the last couple of days and my set up a TST-like SIM account.

After a few SIM trades...

Since my last post I traded three days

Tuesday: 1 GC for loss of (100) in what i will describe as a mistaken entry
Wednesday: +146
1 ZB for loss of (94)
1 ES (50)
3 CL 290
Friday:
4 CL for +$90 BC
My largest loss was (180)
My largest gain was 250 when I saw I was wrong and reversed.

So that is 10 contracts to net about 100. Not very efficient as commissions are 1/3 of the gross profit.

My planned traded on NFP did not trigger.
I am away a few days...
