YM Trade Today 5/19/2011

I'm still trading small but I am feeling better but not yet up to par.

2 trades 2 winners + 21 Ticks

I need to not move my stops or move them to breakeven if a trade is going against me. I did reenter which is better then watching it go downand not being on board.

My prep was right on today in the ES an YM

5/20/2011 YM Trades

4 trades today on the YM. I tried to short it 3 times before I realized that was the wrong direction. This trade is a great example of why you must know when a market is pre-corrective or post corrective both micro and Macro. The failed micro continuation at 50% retracement of the last Macro leg was a great place for a short squeeze.

4 trades one winner, 2 lossers and one breakeven + 50 Ticks

Eur/Usd Trades 5/19-5/20

I went against some of my rules and lost a little on 5/19 and missed alot of the action today because of a meeting.
I need to start earlier in the morning, I'm missing things between 5:00am Cst and 7:00am Cst.

5/19 2 winners and 2 lossers -26 pips @ 10000k
5/20 2 trades 1 winner and 1 breakeven +15 @10000k

not great for the movement, Stick to your rules and don't move stops.

Prep 5/23/2011

Both the Euro and ES are stretched and pre corrective.

Watch for both to corrective and possibly leg out for another action move.

Any signs of a correction and I'll be long for a scalp.

5/24/2011 Prep and 5/23/2011 Euro Trades

I made some mistakes in the Euro that cost me alot of equity. But I fought back to have a positive day. I can have easy sailing if I stick to my rules.

Eur/Usd +22 Pips @ 10000k

ES and Euro prep for today:

Euro and ES are corrective and I'm watch for any failure around 1/3 to 2/3 of last Leg for any shorts and hitting longs with caution.
