ES Pure Price Action trading journal

Discussion in 'Journals' started by jimclark, May 9, 2010.

  1. I've been wanting to start a journal for personal "record keeping" for a while now...starting my first thread today. I can't commit to posting everyday but definitely will be posting weekly summaries. Discuss strategies deployed, market commentary, etc.

    Intraday I trade ES, sometimes take swing positions in corn and wheat. I fade huge/climatic moves in ES with SPY options. As of this writing I am holding SPY 118 May and 120, 121 June 19's calls.

    I trade off 5-min chart, keep an eye on 15-min for longer term and 2-min for momentum, all patterns I trade only on 5-min.

    I don't use any indicators except for 20 EMA - trade pure price action, I use candle sticks.

    I'll posting my observations daily if possible, otherwise end of the week. I'll try to post # of contracts, P/L, if possible some charts.

    I use TradeStation for charting and TransAct DOM for my day trades.
