Enjoy reading your journal. I am a new ES trader, so I'm interested in your progress. It would be great to see what else you are trading. Keep up the posts. We are reading them!

I'm mainly trading Oil(CL) and the eurobund(FGBL). The whole point of the journal was to trade the ES; My results definitely seemed to improve when I stopped trading it, although I keep coming back too it. I'm working on some stuff at the moment. it's a kind of choppy market. Certain things seem to be working with it so far in my experience. Maybe it's simply a matter of certain markets having certain characteristics (for whatewver reason)and exploiting them.....

PS - I may have lost a boat load of money at the casino last night, but I've made back some money tonight at the pub quiz! 5th time i've one in 7 attempts!

Re: attempting ES futures

piggybridges started this thread would have done brilliantly on CL if I had have carried on trading today, but would have had lots of losing trades on the ES.
Don't like the fact that my good results so far seem to be a result of stopping trading for the day when i'm up a decent amount! lol
Still, account is doing much better than I had planned so i'll just carry on as i've been doing I guess.
I thought i'd be down to only a few K in the account by now, as opposed to being up a few K.

Probably stopping here for the day. Nothing working for me today. Hopefully better conditions for me tomorrow.
I'll update if anything jumps out at me that I can't resist and make any more trades.
