CL - 1/15/14

1 trade today - made early in the morning stopped out right away and then done for day - managed to find the lowest tick of the trading session - pretty good except on the wrong side

CL-1/17/14


1 Trade today

Early morning move down followed by basically another day of consolidation - some trading opportunities in that range but not for me.

Back Posting Charts

I haven't posted in awhile - since the last post I have moved form Tradestation to SierraCharts through InfinityBrokers. Similar chart set up and similar trading.

Ill be posting charts again with comments on them - I will be going between SIM trades and Live trades and I will note the difference.

11/12/14 - SIM - opposite of yesterday

Not a great day here - first two trades were losers - stopped after that - I have chart marked up for other trades I would have taken - more losers.

11-25-14 Sim - First 2 Trades


First 2 trades for the day - 1 loser and 1 winner. 1st trade looking for it to roll over after 2 attempts higher - it did roll over but as I trailed stop down was stopped out for small loss. Missed a second trade as price moved too fast. 2nd trade went short below reversal bar at prev day low.
