Re: attempting ES futures

piggybridges started this thread -300

Having all kinds of technical issues today so just a quick daily update.
No statement today, but a losing day of about -$300

Was up a few hundred this morning and was tempted to quit, as I always am when i'm up a decent amount on the day. Not sure whether its correct to quit for the day or not in such circumstances. To quit for the day sort of says that one doesn't actually think they have an 'edge' and are just happy to have made their money and don't want to push their luck.

This guy netted about 12 ES points today which seems quite typical for him. It's inspiring, but also terribly frustrating to watch someone kill the market on a daily basis! Called all his trades out in realtime as always. He trades quite big size too.
Must be nice to have the market as your own ATM machine!

Re: attempting ES futures

Take a look of this chart on the Russell 2k e-mini, might wanna trade it

Daily chart. The Russell is a little different than the S&P e-mini, the Russell trades in tenths and the value of one tick is 10.00, so 1 point = 100 dollars!

Re: attempting ES futures

piggybridges started this thread OK
Im up about $1100 since starting about 2 weeks ago.
Although I feel that I could very easily be DOWN by the same amount, really. For example, on some days where I stopped trading early due to having a nice profit, a look at the end of the day showed that I would have had losing days on most of them if i had have carried on trading! worrying.

Guess we'll see what next week brings.

Im doing better than my mate though, who blew a similar amount of money to my starting balance in a matter of days on his most recent attempt. Still, he's a LOT richer than me!

Re: attempting ES futures

piggybridges started this thread Oh, and the guy that i've mentioned a few times who trades on Skype who always kills it has made about 11 ES points today, as usual! Long from 1198.25, believe it or not. A few ticks from the very low! Really winds me up, lol.
