+1.6 points today per contract

(UPDATE: -1.6 points... OOOPS)

Well, today was a massively confusing day. I was thinking long, but it didn't seem to want to go there.

I have seen many days like this, but for some reason I kept going back from long to short to long again.

Had I kept my last trade at full stop, then I would have done quite nicely, but I chickened out because it was so up and down. I was exhausted too by the time I got there so I just hung it up for the day.

I didn't watch the whole video but was it +1.6 (in title) or -1.6 (on the video). ?

Ooooops! -1.6! haha..

I guess it did the auto-fill...

Or, what I really wanted it to be... It was -1.6 and I am lucky at that for the way I traded. I was up 2 points, but I decided to keep trading. Tough day for me and I just didn't have the endurance to hang out longer for the trend.

+2 points per contract today

Ok, well, I guess I needed to recover a bit from yesterday. Felt great today and I have been spending a few hours daily re-running my old videos and calling short/long, long/short etc. all day. It has been great.

The power of the 4181 and the 1597 are great. I know I can choose to get a few points clear every day.

Today I got knocked out on the tick and I would have ended with about 2 points, but I guess I needed to stay in the market a bit longer and get a nice 4 point run. It would have been a much nicer run, but I didn't feel great about that prospect.

+2.4 points today

Didn't get to trade early on as I had a breakfast meeting.

Nice long at the open, was patient, but it was a bit too choppy to stay in it with too much separation on the longer terms. It was a pleasant day trading.

+1.8 points today

Ok, I clicked so it is my return. +1.8 but the final tally doesn't tell you the whole story.

I haven't had a day like this in a LONG TIME!

I was down as much as 11 points for my one contract. I did make a mistake in that my market replay was 2x after a while for some reason and I was getting bounced. I thought it was a little fast, but didn't notice...

Wow, what a day. I was looking for short, then I would get bounced and I would change my mind to long, get bounced...

I need to have 'special' days like this out before I go back live. I could have taken a 5 minute break but "I didn't want to miss it"....

5 tick stop was tough for today and I wasn't waiting for areas etc..

I wasn't doing trendlines, I was just watching the darn bars on the 144!!!!

Today is the most ashamed trading that I have done in a while. I need to be at least 60 days out from ever trading like this again.

I am more ashamed than you are. Just because I stopped and then started to trade again. Looking back on the charts even after news when volatility was pretty high I can see a lot of nice entries but my eyes were closed and my brain didn't work. All I had was anger and with every losing trade it was growing more and more.
Would I stay calm and concentrate I could do much better. Good thing you got all back and some on the top off it. I just knew that if I keep clicking I'll go even lower because I stopped thinking after news came out.
