Slow start on ES it was a grind to turn a profit missed the dump as had logged off for the night. Time difference is a killer..

Finally hit the 10K mark on account.

Got some of that after hours dump as i was watching monitors.. it was like 11am here.

Again didn't hold on long enough and over traded a little with 17 contracts.

Done for the week and time to size up and get some big numbers on the ES..

Likely to fail on this adventure but keen to give it a decent crack.

Will withdraw 7K and bring account down to 5Kish and go from there.

A very good day actually, its rare that a move is so well forecasted and played out. in addition to my russell short I had a volatility long. If you don't trust your process you can't lean into a trade. Its the missed opportunities that really sting isnt it?

Yeah i wouldn't have predicted a dump that big mid 4180's is where i had it marked.. I don't get too fussed on previous moves always opportunity to make money in this market.
We will probably see some sort of recovery come Monday.

US to AUD conversion was too good not to take some money off table and looking forward to the 5K challenge come Monday..
