Nov. 21st, 2014

#7 ES Entry: 16:57 Short at 2068.75 SL=8, TP=12, TS=(8,4)
Exit: 17:07 at 2067.50: +1.25P

Trailing stop filled.

#8 6E Entry: 20:03 Long at 1.2389 SL=8, TP=12, TS=(8,4)
Exit: at 1.2381: -11 ticks

Stoch didn't cross yet the 20 line, but DMI did change direction. I tried to hard to find a trade, so entered against my roles, which cost me 100$ at the end of otherwise good week.
Need to learn staying on the line...

Nov. Week 3 summary

Less trades this week, but much better results:

trades: 6
winners: 5
Lossers: 1
PnL:+6P = 300$ before commissions (274.5$ net)

Trades: 2
Winners: 1
PnL: 3 ticks = 37.5 before commissions (26.5$ net)

Much better than first 2 weeks, and if not the last trade, I would have covered the losses of the first 2 weeks.

Still, all is simulated trades only, but looks better.
