Lost today on the JY


I tried a short term trade on JY selling market. This was from a different signal than my normal Stop Entry. I only saw a drop of 10 ticks before ti reversed and was stopped out for -12 ticks (-150).

The Yen ended up today. I would not have triggered on longer set up stop.

three trade, two wins

I bought the ES @2009.75 STOP and after a nice run up moved my stop up based on my newly installed MP. I am not sure it was much different than I would have without MP but it did confirm my price only placement. Stopped out for $325.

I was short the yen and got weary of the fluctuations around my entry and bought it back at for one tick loss.
I then tried a shorter term signal and sold the ES for 62.50 gain. I was very satisfied with my exit.

+ 375 for the day

Not a good day--

--Some not so good trades and mismanagement
My main problem was I over traded the CL after my paper profits vanished.

I bought Gold. Entry was not very good. Sold on a STOP very near the low of the session. Stopped out for ($510)
Sold the ZB-03-15. Good entry, good exit for $437 including moving my stop down and a LIMIT exit
Sold CL 02-15. Good entry but I held it too long then over traded the CL on both buy and sell side. CLnet loss ($100).

Overall for today ($173) BC

NFP trades

I had a BUY on the British Pound overnight. Here it is just before the NFP. I moved the stop up to protect just before the report.

Good entry. I set my target based on getting back to stable pre NFP level. There was more to be harvested. Gain $375

Gain 317 for the day.

No good trades

I did not find anything for the overnight session so I decided to try some short term trades this morning.
The first two were minor winners for $90 each, then 180 loss, followed by a 90 dollar loss.

Net loss for the day (90) BC. All four trades were based on selling tHe +1 standard deviation of the daily market profile.

Too many trades, too many losses

I lost $567 today in a volatile day.
I had three trades based on my break out signals and several other shorter term trades. I was satisfied with all the breakout entries, but can't seem to manage the trades efficiently once I am in them. I either get out too early, or like today, give it all back. I do have more fear than greed but today decided to resist the urge to take my profits on all three trades.

I went long Crude in the day session and was 500+ up. I moved my stop to break even and I broke even.
I was short the bonds and $500 ahead and moved my stop to break even an I broke even.

I traded four other quicker trades and lost $67.
I am traveling and did not realize my short in the ES triggered late in day and I was up $300+ when I was through with he quick trades, but I ended up loosing $500 when I was stopped out.

I had a short in Gold that did not trigger. I may keep that active for the night session.

Stopped out on Gold--Trying some SIM rest of day

Lost $500 on a gold trade that was not a good entry.

I have a number of SIM trades that I am trying based on the market profile I am playing with. These will be set and check back later with ATM management.

The other trades today


I had three break out trades and all three triggered.

The Gold in the previous post, Crude and bonds.
I made some serious mistakes that resulted in my not getting the potential profit on the Crude. My BUY STOP was at 47.96. Unfortunately, I used a short term ATM rather than my Break out that only had 10 tick profit before the trailing stop kicked in. So all I made on trade was $90. To top it off, I proceeded to over trade after the price peaked selling and buying on price action and ended up losing an additon 120 for a total of ($30) on the Crude. I did stop trading before it became serious but I should have stopped earlier.

Then late in day my Bond SHORT triggered and I closed out on the open for three ticks.
Loss for day (436) Before commissions.

As I get some time I will try to review the sim trades I made during the day. I am trying improve my management of the trades using MP. But what I did in real time was not based on MP at all.
