curious why do you trade the NQ over ES or YM.... I normally trade the ES but today it looks like the NQ trends a little better do you find this is usually true ?

Thanks


-P

NQ just happened to catch my eye first. When I started doing research into Futures, one of the videos I watched was someone trading the NQ. I liked how it moved. Coming from a Forex world where the EURUSD moves at a snails pace I wanted something I didn't have to wait on to see results. NQ does trend nicely on most days. It can also be a real pain. There are good opportunities all day with NQ to make some decent money.

ES is next on my list once I am fully comfortable with NQ.

Grabbed a quick scalp a few minutes ago. Too fast to screenshot. It was profitable and I am now at +1370.

Finishing the day at +1395. No additional trades taken. It was a good day but a stressful day.

Going to adjust my risk profile for trading tomorrow. Although the account can handle the swings, mentally I am not ready to see profit/loss move that fast. It's fun to watch when it's going your way, it's not so fun when it isn't. LOL! So, starting tomorrow I will be trading just 1 contract instead of 5. Should reduce the stress by a factor of 5. This will also allow me to widen my stop some and let the trade develop instead of forcing it.

Time to relax a bit and get ready for the new trading day.

Thanks for all of the support.

Let me know if these attachments are too big. I used the screenshot tool in NT to grab it. I have large 4k monitors and I am not sure how these will display on other monitors.

I turned on the moving averages again but plan on trading a combination of swings along with my normal trading style. I don't use them as a crossover type of trading. Instead they are paired up in two's to give me information about short, medium and longer term trends as well as giving a good visual cue as to where to join a trend.
