Blubaru's Gold Trades

Discussion in 'Journals' started by Blubaru_555, Sep 18, 2008.

  1. My 2nd journal, the first one is here.

    I started my account with 20K in February. I had a rough start trading things like YM, ES, HSI and some other random contracts but finally settled for gold. Up until last week I had a peak of 48K, but today the account sits at 22K.

    My trading style has been to counter-trend trade, often without stops. It's worked well until last week. I need to learn some discipline now, before I lose this chance to make trading a career.

    I'm taking out 10K to the side, and using what's left to trade.

    I'll be trading 1 contract at a time, using stops of 200-250. I hope to use this journal to make me more accountable for my actions.

    Starting amount: $12,250
