Nice trading man!
I gave back all of yesterday's gains. I've done that 3 or 4 times in the past 2 weeks. pissed at myself.
Like I had posted I had 5 losing days in a row but didn't lose that much money. It was so choppy that once a trade went against me I just got out. Another one I had made $150 profit but I decided to let it run with OCO and went to bed. While I'm sleeping it hit my stop and goodbye $100. Maybe this is not the time to let em run and I should consider taking less profit? I don't mean $50 but maybe anything over a $100 with light volume.
I have a few things to ask. I think one of my problems is that I'm trading quite a bit late in the day and that because of the low volume it's difficult to make money. Can you give me the best trading times for the different markets?
Another problem is that I find myself trying to trade the trend and not waiting for the price to come to me. I'm just guessing that you do the same and I think it's due to low volume and everything is moving at a much slower pace that I just get tired of waiting. Maybe a patience problem on my part?
Thanks dude for any advice you can give me and anyone else reading your thread. Have a good weekend.
I'm tired of waiting. Gimme some cash. LOL I set my stop at 12946 which would exceed the price of the low for this session. I think if it drops to this price game over for now.
Stopped out -$237. You may be right JLC and maybe I should take a few days off. I picked up quite a bit on some MU puts but these damn futures are just not cooperating this past week. I need to see how you're doing.
