I took a trade today on my live account. My intuition just gave me such a powerful feeling that I couldn't justify just placing it on SIM. I managed to take about 14 ticks of profit. I planned on taking more but the NQ shot upwards so quickly that I got filled before I could even move it but hey, I'll take $70 in 3 minutes any day

I am a short-biased trader. I came from shorting NASDAQ small caps that were garbage companies, and so I tend to always look for a short trade, not necessarily a good thing. But I know when I get the feeling to go long, I should probably take it, since I much prefer being short.

Don't think I will be participating in this morning session I admire those that can trade this crazy action. I actually tried to get short this morning at 7274 right before the open but didn't get a fill I'm gonna check back in around 11:00 to see if the action is still at this pace.

I notice when the market is this volatile, the pre-market session (is that what you guys call it in futures? That's what we always called it in stocks) is actually pretty clean and has decent volume. I notice that most of my trades are occurring before the market even opens.

So far today was a pretty good day. I had trouble getting to sleep last night, I was testing espresso till 10PM. I still got up on time though, which is honestly a big feat for me.

Do you guys trade this action? If so, what kind of methods do you use?

It is 8:55 AM as I write this. I have already traded for the day. I managed to take 21 ticks short on the NQ. That is a big step up for me honestly. I opened my futures account back in August and I lost money consistently for awhile even while employing proper risk management and minimizing bad practices.

This past week I finally feel like I started getting the hang of things. I have won two days in a row, but that's no big deal. But these past two winning days I have been a totally different trader. I have been patient, waiting for a proper play to reveal itself, and then when I see it, I am aggressive and do not hesitate to put on my position.

I have noticed some issues I have to work on, and that is letting my profits run. I managed to take the entirety of this pullback, but still. I want the winners to be big enough to pay for the losers. I feel like if I could put 2 contracts or more on it would help with that because of taking partial profits.
