I just came across this interesting thread and decided to follow it.

I ought to, and will, read it from the beginning, but the first thing I noticed is that, at least in the recent posts, you often take just one trade in a day, and also often skip the day. Is limiting your number of trades a choice in order to limit your exposure to the market, or is it just that you have to wait for your setups? (And of course, it could be both.)

Anyway, it's interesting to see someone taking relatively few trades, when most people posting here probably take too many....

(By the way, results to date show you're doing something right .)

Thanks for the journal. Good luck in your trading.

Bob.

Thanks Bob. I have a very specific setups so that limits the number trades. And I only trade the first couple of hours of each market in only trade 3 markets (GC, CL, TF). I am done trading by 8 am (PST) each day so that limits me as well. I do like the return of this approach but it takes a lot of patience.
