The second set was completed +10...1 contract...this of course is as a resultof default from yesterday.

Although if (I don't like that word in trading) I had left it alone from yesterdays sequence the profits would have been greater., but then again I would have been forsaking the exposure of the 1st set up which was in excess of 50 % chance of being stopped out eventually.

Bottom line...not what you make...it's what you don't lose.

so you dont add at all to a position that you know is going in your favor?

Hi Family Trader,

Thank you for posting your chart. I saw you have two EMAs now. I know one is EMA100. What's the period of another EMA? TIA

Finally got out of todays pathetically boring action right near the close with an 'extreme' exit

Profit for 1 st set up was only 3.5 and 2nd set up was 2.25...1st set up took 9 trades and 2 nd set up was just the one trade..

Still profits though...

Will post chart later.

Chart for yesterday's trades

At the end of the month I will make a few comments related to trading and hopefully try to offer some useful advice related to 'funding' a strategy and survival.

Not everyone will like it,but if it helps 1 trader, I will be happy.
