friday
9 trades
+$245 net
i decided on thursday, that when we have contract rollover, that i would use my practice acct, not my sim acct....sounds silly, but, my sim acct is the determining factor for me to go to cash.The market has been wild this week, with all the news.The spreads in the cl were iffy because of rollover.The only choice i see, is to trade the plan, but in the other acct.There are times when market conditions will effect trade probability, and rollover is definately the worst.On thurs, i had 5 ticks of slippage on 1st and only trade.In speaking to Todd, i will try to use limit orders, with a max 2 tick slip on entry.that is logical, and acceptable...Ok, back to today.The 1st trade was a 30 tick winner, nice.the next 8 trades , i never got back to the high .I think there were 3 or 4 fat fingers.That is indication of 2 things.market is very fast, and lack of focus.I think it was both.IN looking over the ytrades, i feel they were all good enough to take.The big setback of the day, came , when i closed a trade at +6, and it went to +30.That is a no no.And that needs to stop.Its been a while since i did that.I might change the trigger on my stop strategy to start at +5.It should be interesting, to see how that works.Hitting +9, then getting a be, doesnt sit well with me.
Closed the week out at a modest +425 net, not counting today, as today was in the practice acct.I am realizing, that, sticking with my method, regardless of market conditions, is the only way i can be profitable so far.It is just a matter of what the market will give me.Even during rollover, the trades do happen, allbeit less frequently, with seemingly more break evens.No need for pics today, its all mental now, and the work continues
next week..until 1030, FOCUS.....me and the mas

well, here it is.i have 2 weeks of gains in the bag, and i always thought, if i do 3 weeks positive in a row, then i have permission to go to cash.Obviously, this is an important week, and i am readt to move forward.I seem to have lost interest in everything, except for my prime setup, which has a very high success rate.I just dont want the mental baggage of taking lower probability trades, regardless of how many trades i get a day.I just want to ride a few good waves, and shut it down at 1030.And focus on my mas.This has been working well, and i really dont want to backtrack.Today, there was enough movement, but very rangy.I got the 1 trade off early after the open, and didnt get any more.There were a few that werer close, but didnt qualify.

today was a little dissapointing, but, i stuck to the method.Maybe its just a matter of what the market will give me each day, and the 2 i took today were ok.Taking signals at hod or lod, is not really my favorite, but thats what i was given.I included a daily shot, because, we are pulling back, and price has been very rangy.There were some good ct trades today, but , i would prefer to have a good gain in the bag before i take the cts.These were decent setups, so i guess they would be ok to take.It just seems like the risk is a lot higher with a ct, even with a good setup.Tomorrow we come back, and look for more waves to ride

5 trades
+$105
wild day, made 1 mistake, but the same scenario with the cl as yest, until it got volatile.Got a few decent trades, and the ranginess cut my profits to small gains.I actually considered lowering my profit target to 15, then i stopped myself.I did start to watch the tf , as well, man does that move.Didnt get any fills on that tho.Towards the end of my session, i finally got a runner on the cl for +20.That put me into green, and i was happy to shut it down.This is a milestone day.with the weeks total net at +$335, this ensures that , regardless of tomorrow, i have just put in my 3rd positive week in a row.I dont really expect much out of tomorrow, with jackson hole.Imo, the trading has definately changed a bit.These are the times, in the past, where i would think about making changes.Im not thrilled about the low gains, but i know enough to know, this is progress.
total net so far 3 weeks +$1570.We do have a few days left in the month next week, and it would be nice to add to the tally, as i close the books each month, and start afresh

the day after hurricane irene, so i wasnt sure what to expect.Fro the beginning, it seemed that the follow thru was suspect.Vol was low on the cl, even tho evertrhing was in rally mode.This type of day in the past would have chopped me up, so , i wont be dissapointed with such a quiet day.

8/30/2011
tuesday
4 sim trades in tf
-$50 net
started off at 9:30 with a mistake.Nevertheless, lets get it back.that 1st trade was right at the 200, dont do that.I have been practicing with some new entry types, and the % isnt as good.They essentially are cts, so that figures.What got me to this point, was all trend trades.Cts, more than not, seem to struggle.Because this week is lower vol, there are mostly bes and +2, +4, etc.You get the picture.In the future, lets just stick with my method.It works, and when the vol is low, just practice.Make this choice before the open.The thing i liked about the last 3 weeks, is that, i just show up, catch a few waves, and see what the market gives me.The mental baggage is so much less.Just stick with the plan, and be disciplined ...dont deviate.And attitude is important too.The market loves bad attitudes..and it loves bad discipline.,..be stubborn, and patient.Wait for the setups, and take your best shot.The idea, is to start with 1 contract, and over time, increase to more, so, just trade correctly, and u will be fine.tune out the noise, on all levels, and focus on the candles and the lines
