Ok, so I've been an active trader for many many years, primarily equities and currencies until I had a major account blowup three years ago. I had been holding an equity for several months and was deep in the red. Without all the gory details, a major news outlet erroneously reported one morning that the company was consulting with a bankruptcy specialist firm. The stock dropped 50%, I was on margin, and well I dumped trying to salvage what was left, walked away from the market devastated. I'm talking allot of money to the 99% of us. Anyway, I vowed not to "invest" ever again. If I'm going to be in the market, I'm cleaning the slate everyday before market close. So, I've just started trading futures, ES specifically, trading only 1 contract at a time. On my first attempt, I made 15 round trips during US market hours. At the end of the day I was up a little over $1500 minus commissions. Trading mainly PA and support /resistance. I lost a small amount on 2 trades mainly due to slippage. Now I'm a little concerned. It seemed like it was too easy and was just a lucky day. I'm stepping away and rethinking what happened, but now I'm worried that thinking about my approach will just muck things up. Anyway, some traders are probably thinking....ahhh fresh meat in the ES. But, I'm determined to take some money from the market by being conservative/protective and trading price action. Thoughts?
