Added to short @ 1402, average @ 1400. Gonna try to get out of this thing breakeven.

Riduculously low volume, but it is Friday afternoon.
Covered ES short @ 1400 B/E. At least my broker made some $$ today.

Looking back at the chart, I think this was the trade of the day. Of course, hindsight is 20/20.

Not sure if the order at 02.75 (one tick below previous HOD)would have been filled, but still would've been a decent trade.

Too bad I missed it, got in front of the screen after the open, and didn't study the market properly.

"gmst" caught it though, nice call:

long 94.5, a bit risky but strong support at 93
Easy come, easy go.

Thanks I feel very appreciated

When I took that trade I was thinking of a target either around 98-99 or around 1403-05. However I got duped by market and sad fact is that I sold the position at 95.75.

Edit: So I planned the trade well, but I didn't trade my plan

That's okay, at least you have the satisfaction of knowing you were right. That's better than making money any day...
