Back trading futures as daylight savings has kicked in and i can trade a reasonable hour 11:30PM as i prefer to trade open.

Took a few days to get my Q trader platform activated so Friday was my first day.

Need to find my groove again and looking forward to net week.

Been slacking off updating my journal. Markets for me have been clear as day to trade but i am not taking advantage of it.
Only taking 1 contract when i would normally have 3-4 on that particular trade.

Traded only 3 days this week -

Traded the open on a tight long position before watching buyers and sellers battling out in the 5402 - 5403 range before sellers eventually showed up.

I missed the dump as had a early night hopefully we can get a decent profit soon but for now slowly grinding away..

Went long too early yesterday and got murdered. My stop 4185 was 2 points too high ouch! Had already gone to bed and market reversed.

Finding it hard with a large balance as i feel i am trying to protect it!

Have withdrawn and left 2K in balance so lets come back from this in a big way.

Started the week trading on a small account not sure what it is psychologically but always seem to do better.

Markets are interesting at the moment just trying to pick the best spots and not over trade.
