This freaking short taking toll, I was able to add to my short at 16090 and covered at 16049. Oil is down but $VOLSPD is jot giving up, if we close above yesterday's high I will give up on the remaining short.

Edit: Stopped out at 16065...today is a total useless grind mainly because of me going against the trend thinking market will do it's thing i.e selling at the end. It did but came back up.

Again it's the same story today too...no trades as I got busy with some other stuff. I might not trade tomorrow also, I am too afraid of loosing and converting a good month into a loosing. Also, I am not finding anything to trade it's too volatile, my stop of 100 points on YM won't be enough unless I get a very good price. I am utilizing this timeframe to automate the stratergy but first I need to find a platform so I am leaning towards Multi Charts but I don't have proper data feed (Currently, I use TOS for data and IB for execution). Any suggestions for good data feed for MC?

Damn damn...contrary to everyone on this forum I screwed it up on the last day...Still neutral/slightly bearish but with hedges and now I have to work my ass off to properly dispose longs and shorts...
Still not a bad start but last day of the month screw up, still might work out but I hate when I get into this managing situations, I thought I am over that bad habit...what happened? I was short YM and somehow when I tried to close it market was already closed so couldn't close it so in order to protect from the gap up over the weekend I had to get in to TF long as a hedge. Now the idea is to close both longs and shorts properly or for small loss.
