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.
