A pretty eventful night before I got up as i suspected it might be...and it continued.

We had a +10 profit goal hit, but we were already out as had an 'extreme' a few minutes earlier.

the losses were skinny in both series traded and we took profits at 125775....and it went on to 125425 without us..

Net profit 9.5 before comms...13 contracts...

Here is the chart from yesterday's trade...unlucky as had to take a loss on the series as it hit the extremme then rolled through to +10...it happens

Net loss 6.75 points plus comms...65 contracts...that hurt

Since then there have been 4 more +10s in a volatile period...no trades taken,unfortunately.

No trade available since 1.30 am EST either...wont take up a new trade until 9 am ..

Not trading today...never really like Fridays...focusing all my day on Multicharts and probably annoy the hell out of them with some specific needs in order to justify buying their product...

Happy trading all..

Have had an exacerbating weekend trying to get data from MC..don't know whether it was them or broker feed or CME/Globex...but was not fun

As a result of Friday's fortunate lay off from this strategy I have made a specific change to the EMA setting which will bring in (hopefully) more profit hits from the CMO 'extreme' range. In essence, I will be in effect reducing the potential +10 profit goal for the sake of less ,but more frequent profits at the extremes while,and more importantly, reducing potential exposures to my stop loss method.

I will not disclose the specific change for a week, but will be (am) running the change with the current EMA100, meaning I am running double contracts ( exposure) where both levels trigger a trade.

In effect, if it goes totally wrong over night I will have 2 losses.

Currently was S at 7675 and 7525

L 7600 and 7675...might be a little confusing but in time will resolve itself.
