Tough day today.

Trade setups for 3/10/2014...

3 for 4 today... 75%
on my 1 loss need to take less than full stop out especially when thr
following candle closes at its midpoint of setup candle.
This is quite different that the following candle pulling back 4-5 tix of heat but ends up closing at its hi.
Again, implementing some money management would have produced a better results day.

Keep in mind I showed Pullback [PB] trades to 50MA. I don't take those but
still showing it as a viable setup within the rules.

CGQ had historical data issues on CL, so no CL trades today!!!

8:33am... NG (+5) PB 50MA
8:47am... NG +5 3LB below Red 15/50MA's
8:56am... GC (+5) PB 50MA
9:23am... NG +5 2LB below Red 15/50MA's
9:39am... GC -10 3LB above Green 15/50MA's - money mgmnt from above 6tix loss tops!!!
10:12am... GC +5 3LB above Green 15/50MA's

Trade setups for 3/12/2014...

2 and done!!

Slow day early on.
Patience for good setups and vol to return

7:14am... GC (+5) ABC Green 15/50MA's
8:56am... CL +4 2/3 cross 15MA Red 15/50MA's [adj to 4tix due to entry slippage]
9:22am... GC +5 Power Green 15/50MA's

Note: for managing trades going forward I will do an initial 10tix trailing stop as to limit the amt of
full 10tix stop outs.
Adj my profit if neg slip on entry.
Trades are based on 5tix or 6tix total move from entry....

Trade setups for 3/13/2014...

2 and done!!!

Going with 4 contracts now with my trailing 10tix stop
This way should limit the amt of full 10tix stop outs, which should be more
beneficial to the bottom line...

9:34am... NG +5 2LB above Green 15/50MA's
9:52am... NG +5 3LB below Red 15/50MA's
