So here is my new day trading strategy for the Live Cattle and Lean Hog Contracts. Daily goal is $300/day minimum with a strict policy of not chasing extra profits once threshold is reached. Principles are: do not trade the opening volatility, 1 or 2 trades per day, trade break outs and persistent trends, place tight slop loss orders after entry. The strategy entails following the daily trade and placing 1 or 2 trades each day of 5 contracts or 10 contracts. Each tick gains $50 for 5 contract positions, $100 for 10 contract positions. Commissions or just under $10 per contract. My question is, does this strategy of short 'get in get out' trading have a high likelihood of making the $300 per day objective assuming on 1 or 2 trades will be made each day with significant evidence of a daily trend? To me it's an aggressive trade witha conservative strategy as opposed to the deadly 'scared money' systems of aggressive strategy and conservative trade.
