Update

I passed up on trades on both the CL and ES. Market moving way to slow for me. Time to go to the gym. Have a great afternoon!

I will post my Combine Trade Report later today.

What a Day So Far


I tried a new scalping method early this morning and got killed. I won't bother showing you those trades because they were useless (at least I was). It has taken me awhile but I have managed to dig myself out of a deep hole. I am now about $20 to the positive after commissions. We will see what the market does from here.

Rough Day

I should have stopped after digging myself out of that big hole but pride can lead to destruction. Here are my final results for today:

Crude (CL)

S&P500 (ES)

Here is a snapshot of my last trade for the day. It was a picture perfect setup and I blew it. I didn't expect the last move up before the fall to be as strong as it was and I got stopped out to the tick. This happened to me twice today (where I got stopped out to the tick). However, had I not been trying to squeeze in a few extra dollars after a super difficult day and waited for my setup entry it never would have been a problem.

Slept in & Missed Out

Not a great way to start after the holiday. I definitely wasn't thinking. I missed 2 perfect setups that would have yielded me over $1500 with 4 contracts. Tried taking a 2nd test of my area instead of waiting for a HH above 47.76 and got stopped out now I am down over $500. In addition, I missed my SHORT entry at 47.43 It is going to be a fight today!

Trade in Progress

Expecting price to go to 47.17. Entered at 46.81 with 2 contracts. Initial stop: -17 ticks. T1: +16 / T2: +26. We will see what happens. Not looking good at the moment but I will let it play out as this is one of my favorite setups.

Back in the positive for the day!

Both targets filled and price did reach expected target of 47.17. Looking to reenter as I have another new high.

Trade in Progress

Entered on pullback @ 46.92 with 2 contracts. At this point I am just wanting to get a little cushion so I have both contracts set @ T1 for +16 ticks. Just filled.
