My first journal entry. I trade the Globex session in the evening (7pm to 10pm central time). I'm setup to trade the ES, YM, and 6E with my broker.

Hopefully my results below are formatted correctly. Obviously still learning. I plan on posting an evening trade plan and then posting the results the following morning. These are from the night before on 6/6/2016.

Trading is VERY slow during these hours. Like watching paint dry. Price is range-bound but seems to oscillate 1 to 2 points. Not the best time to trade I know but it is all I can do at the moment.

Strategy is very simple; buy the low, sell the high using 5-min and 1-min time frames. Stops are set 1 tick outside of an established range. My problem is that I get impatient and move my stops. Whether that is inside the original 1 tick outside the range or just moving it to breakeven and getting stopped out early.
