ES bot no trades, E7 bot no trades

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 no trades, E7 46 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.

ES bot no trades, E7 bot no trades

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.

ES bot no trades, E7 bot no trades

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

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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.

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