The goal here is to document the trades I take on the ER2 . I use a strategy runner simulator and Esignal for data. Here is what I did today in EST . 800 hrs buy 716.9 stop 1.4 pt result- breakeven 901 hrs buy 708.8 stop 1.2 pt result- +9 ticks 958 hrs sell 716.7 stop 2 pts result-breakeven 1102 hrs buy 715.7 stop 3.2 pts result- -3.2 pts 1113 hrs buy 712 stop 8 ticks result- +2.6 pts 1516 hrs buy 705.6 stop 2pts result- +1 pt 1529 hrs buy 704.5 stop 1.7 pts result- breakeven The 1102 trade was real damaging and I know the stop was too much to give . I should try to trade in the direction of the trend of a longer time frame . The signals I take are on a 10 or 15 min chart . The 10 min. signals to sell were all winners today . So todays lesson is to stay objective while favoring trend , I'll try again tomorrow . BTW - I have been involved with Eminis for 2 years so far and like most people I blew up a live account , refinanced it and blew it up again . Today and for the last 2 months or so are much improved over last year .When I do get a consistent uptrending equity curve on a simulator I plan to fund an account with money I break my ass for and risk no more than 2% on each trade . I enjoy trading and am willing to put in A LOT of time and effort to succeed . I welcome any constructive criticism and especially the barbed blabber I see some dishing out .
