No trades on any bots today as well. I guess it was just a choppy week. May be next week will be better.

I did one discretionary trade today on M6E. It was good for 50 ticks.

ES bot did not take any trade today.

I go 46 ticks on E7 bot on IB breakout. Good trade after long time.

I did one descritionary SIM trade on M6E when it came down from Pivot point and yesterday's high in afternoon. But it did not work well so now I am exiting it with 5 ticks loss.

No trades on any bot today.

I did one manual trade on M6E. It was good for 40 ticks. M6E formed double top on 30 mins chart. I saw it late but then thought I could still get on the rally.

No trades on any bot today. I missed to turn on both bots until afternoon. It caused to miss one opportunity on ES.

I did 2 manual trades. First one was long around 11.30am on M6E. But then quickly realized about FOMC news so exited with -3 ticks. On another trade I did short on M6E around 2pm. But then it did not move, so exited with -15 ticks after 3.30pm.

hey safin, i to sometimes play in the M6E and its hard to get hurt if i feel i need to work out a few kinks in my system. my question is, the M6E is pretty terrible to trade, and how do you overcome the stagnant price while the bid/ask jumps all over the place?

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

Hi madLyfe,
I should have mentioned that these are SIM trades, so fills are not real. I did some real trades before on M6E and they are not identical to SIM. I usually place Limit orders. Sometimes my orders do not get filled because of large spread in bid/ask on M6E. But because I trade 30 mins chart, i usually have enough time and room to get on board. It would be lot hard to trade on smaller time frames.

ES bot did not take any trades today. E7 bot took 1 long at 11.30 but it was a loser. Then it tried to short at 1.30pm, but exited at Break Even.

I did one manual SIM trade on M6E. But then exited at Break Even.
