I will be trading only CL for the combine. Too many instruments can affect qualifying.

Scalp trading for 5-15 ticks. PM for rules, etc.

Day 4

Have to reset the combine. Too many contracts blew the daily. Will lower the number of contracts to give the trades room. Will resume tomorrow.

1st you have to have a system with an edge. But that's not enough. Money management is key for the combine. I have the edge but have blown 2 combines on the daily loss limit because I was overconfident in the edge and traded too heavy.

Getting stopped out while the trade is still working is frustrating. Winning days become loser days because of the daily loss limit and getting stopped out mid trade.

Position sizing will be the goal for the next combine.
