hi BoltTrader,

Am I correct your ES is -218 $ only?
My opinion: make 1-2 trades with 1 contract, if a winner let it run & forget the ES in the Combine.
You have great results on CL, focus only on that still can make your combine successfull. Like today many possible trades on oil.

I failed my last combine too, made more loss on ES than CL profit, split my focus and made me sick. Decided to trade CL only. Nowdays ES hard to trade, if you watch 2 instruments and 50% focus on each, will be far from enough to profit on emini.

Wish you many tick on CL, and an easy correct of ES!

Thank you! I have pretty much decided to quit on the ES I just have to get it back above positive. Going with 4 contracts for 8 ticks. One successful trade today with 4 contracts at +5. I am hoping that with just one more I can get my stats back to the positive on the ES. I just missed my 3rd setup a little bit ago which would have worked for me. (I will post that shortly).

I Made It By One Dollar

Yes, you read that correctly I have the S&P 500 (ES) trading average greater than zero by $1 (lol). Thank you, Lord! Now, all that remains is one more good day on Crude and I should be evaluated for a funded account. Here are the Combine Trade Reports for today:

Crude (CL)

Hey, a dollar's all it takes!

Good work digging out of that hole.

Good luck with Crude, and then in your next step.

Bob.

Trading Update

Decided to take the day off for several reasons. First, today was non-farm payroll day. Second, I needed a break away from the charts. Third, a bad night's rest and finally my mindset wasn't right. I will replay today's data over the weekend and see how I do. I'm looking forward to Monday.

Have a great weekend!
