DMs 2009 Journal

  1. Started off poorly this year, but I'm still going to see how well I can stick to this journal posting. I'll try and see if I can add to the profitable ranks at equity trading. I trade bond futures at work but often finish early and decided to kill my day trading index futures on my own account.

    Somehow I let myself get whipsawed at the top, getting long thinking we might break out and taking several losers then flipping back to long expecting it again. Foolish for me to have lost money today.

  2. another stupid loser, was up until that massive selloff towards the end. recycled losers long on the way down- should have recognized 939 as a great short rather than still hanging on long there.

  3. three losers to start off the year, eek- atleast i bounced back the last two days.

    killed myself getting caught long over and over and over.

    made money long recycling 1/2 my position selling into every rally

    really should have gotten out +7k but i moved my stop due to volume action i saw making me think there might be an upmove but won't believe that too much more.
