No trades for today (31st).

Looked like a pretty volatile session, hopefully the new year will bring some fun trading.

2016 is going to be AWESOME.

What a start to 2016! If this is the markets' way of saying "Happy New Year" I'd hate to see her when she's mad!

Pretty major selloff in ES so far today.

First trade (first chart) was shorting at support, literally sold the bottom there. Plus, took a trade outside of the day session where my best trading occurs.

Day session trades were better, managed to dig myself out of the hole from the first trade, but still ended down on the day.

I let the first few trades run better than usual, but got timid with the last two trades.

If we disregard the first trade, I feel pretty good about my entries today, not shorting support and buying resistance all day long like other days.

Looking forward to the rest of this week.

After the down day on Monday I decided I need to go "to the woodshed" and figure out how to do 2 things:

1. Better entries.

and more importanly

2. Hold my winning trades.

Well, I think I may have made some progress.

Review and what I figured out coming later.

Stephen King Fan

I like your icon. Gunslinger got me through third tour in Iraq.

This whole week has been a sneak attack by nightly bear traders.
I had some trouble yesterday too and had to make some adjustments.

Should be able to trade tomorrow's session until around lunch time, then the rest of this week full sessions.

Couldn't trade today, too much to take care of starting early this morning.

Full detail journal and session reviews coming tomorrow.
