Five Outcomes to A Trade

My goal is to be either "Profitable, Neutral or CLOSE TRADE"

  • CRITICAL ASSUMPTIONS NOTE - 4 Contracts are used only once per day per symbol.  The goal is to capture the best setup for the day and get as much out of the market as possible.  Any trades AFTER that trade, (if there are any), have only 1 contract and stops are managed aggressively.




/ES  Shorted it end of day and allowed the stop to take me out on the spike prior to close.  Price did turn over as expected but I am not keeping a position overnight.  So, stay out and wait for tomorrow to look for new set ups.

/ES may have an interesting Asia / London session.


  • /CL   
  • The last OIL chart, (looking back) provides a clear view of how the alert sequences develop overtime.  Of course, the ideal entry was at 6:00 AM but I do not trade that time.  So, I must be able to review price action, alerts and enter the position during the US Session.  As you can see in the transaction detail, I was completely wrong in every instance practically.  (I was focused on the support lines causing a bounce without giving the importance priority of the alerts).  Alerts override the supports.

WEEK #4 Net Loss -$4,963

(Tuesday was a simulation of a negative day trading -$4,317) On this day, I hit my $500 limit too early in the day, so I decided to make it a Big Loss day and hopefully illustrate what it would look like when committing the common mistakes made when trading carelessly.

Otherwise, the week was Small Loss.
