" NOTE: Stopped out on NG short. Looking for longs"

What i find interesting they all trade the same way- more or less if one is willing to give enough room via stop loss.

Ttrying to pick bottom is never a good idea. Out of CC long after 3 days. Neither here or there. I should focus on bounces so that i can short rather than being a bottom picker.

It's good to have 6th sense. After i got out of long in CC - it has dropped 33 points. When i took long 2 days ago, i knew it's not right because long was against the trend . Got lucky and pulled the plug before next leg down.

I am trying my hand at Euro futures. So far only 1 trade in 6 months. By the time i am done with above mentioned list, i have no time or energy left. So for the time being no forex and just instruements from that list.

Went short at 80.24 at the top of the OR . Having a wide stop loss kept me in the trade.
