July 19th Trades

One trade today, stopped @ BE, got distracted this morning and did not have my home work done. Definitely notice I am feeling substantial of FOMO today. After noticing this I decided to stop trading and call it a week.

July 24th Trades


Took two trades today, all three profit targets filled on first and stopped at BE on second. This second trade would have filled all profit targets if I had trailed on PSAR. However, Market was really slow and it came into the noon hour and I was getting anxious to get out of the trade. I did trail my stop according to plan.

July 26th Trades

Two trades today, full stop on first and 1st TP filled on second then stopped on remaining contracts. I will consider adjusting my stop policy based on the results of the last few trades, however I need a few more trades before I make any changes.

Looks like you are doing pretty well. I have not traded ES much so this has been a very good exercise and my focus has been on executing my plan and controlling risk. Thanks for the comments!

I trade only NQ and Micro ES NQ and RTY sometimes.

My R:R has been fallen since few weeks and gave back good $$. Lost my balance and trying to controll it.

July 30th Trades


Two trades today, full stop on both.... I followed my plan. However, after a few more trades I will analyze my strategy and make adjustments as are necessary, I need about 10 more trades to have a min of 30 trades to make any changes to the strategy. Market possible settling into balance waiting for FED numbers on Wed and I will be very careful trading tomorrow and it is OK if I do not take any trades.
