Best winning day so far.
Traded other instruments instead of the ES today.
Coincidence?.....probably.

So, 9 days in now; 7 trading sessions.

Daily Results so far:
-215.88
-156.8
-57.94
180.7
97.74
-160.22
474.56

TOTAL PNL = +$162.16
STARTING BALANCE $8000
CURRENT BALANCE $8162.16

Im somehow slightly UP so far on my initial balance. Not really sure how. Today certainly helped alot. Does feel quite random and each trade feels like a coin toss in terms of the actual outcome, despite my various analysis. I done alot better in demo, but maybe I just had a lucky spell.

The fact that today was my best day, (and I didn't touch the ES) may or may not be a coincidence, but, despite the name of the journal being 'attempting to trade ES futures', I intend to trade other instruments (and NOT the ES) for the next week at least, just to see how things go.

Any genuine profitable traders (assuming they exist!) are always welcome to thrown genuine pearls of wisdom my way, particularly related to method/strategy.
People often talk about trading being all about the mental and psychological aspect and that system/method being overrated. At this point I disagree. I feel I have the mental side under lockdown. I can take losses like a robot and can stick to my rules too, but if the method plain 'doesn't work' then I think it's always gonna end in tears.

Hey piggy, you mentioned you traded a different contract besides the ES, what was it?
