Hats off to you guys, as I won't lie, so far I am finishing a majority of the days in the negative (SIM).
Further more, my negative days average is higher than positive days, definitly not a place you want to be.
In summary, so far, I am unable to have positive results, by my own fault I am sure.

As said before, this is probably the difference between a man and a boy.
If this was easy, it would be known by now, thus no choice but to keep pushing forward.

As I feel I am going nowhere for the last 3 weeks or so, and focusing far too much on trade management (going in circles... such a classic!!) then back to basics with a little bit of a binary experiment.

Only 2 results possible,12SL and 12TP.

The entry, that is all I need to focus on, and that all is needed, then the price get filled for the exit either at +12 or -12.
Let’s see where that will go, focusing only on entry.

Today: +12 -12 -12 -12 +12 +12

I wish you all green ticks nearly every day, and hopefully I will follow at some point.

Enjoy your week end guys
Cheers,
J-F

I was looking for a pullback to 7365 yesterday but it didnt happen before today. So I am short now from 7353. Stops above 7367.
Stop moved down to 7347.
+24 ticks locked in.
Waiting to see if we will dip below 7300 today. So far it's been an inside day...

Not fully focussed at the start of the session and missed a couple of nice trades in the first 20 minutes. Alos unlucky with a no fill. Ended with -9, 3 trades. One loss and 2 BE's all on the Russell. This week 3 Green days hitting daily target and 1 small losing day, not bad.

Have a nice weekend all.

NQ can be and has been dirty lately. I think ES is even cleaner nowadays, but has less range. Maybe take a look at YM instead. Here's one of the shorts you got stopped out on, except it's on YM. You can see that there's a little less volatility and the trade wouldn't have been stopped like it was on NQ. It's just one trade, but there's less overall volatility on YM than on NQ.

Just got the boot on my short. Ouch!
Guess the Italian situation was hardly noticed by US markets...
