It seems everyone has a journal these days, so here is mine. My biggest problem is cutting winners too soon and letting losers run. I am hoping that by recording my trades here and receiving feedback that I may finally be able to kick this flaw. My trades are completely discretionary although some of my entries will be loosely based on a mechanical trading system that my bot uses. If the market is not moving too quickly I will try to post my trades as close to real time as possible, but when the market is moving faster or I am unsure about my position I may not be able to post at the time. I will mainly be trading the mini dow YM, and mini nasdaq NQ. I am going to be using a relatively small trading account, approximately 7K. I will try to never have more than 1 contract open at a time to avoid huge losses that could wipe my small account out. My personal goal is to net $100 a day. I do not plan to post a daily screenshot of my P/L, however I will if asked. Todays Trades thus far: Bot 1 Ym 10782 at 8:14 Sold 1 Ym 10796 at 8:21 Bot 1 YM 10825 at 8:37:03 Sold 1 YM 10834 at 8:37:34 Net thus far: $106 PS: all trade times are listed as central time.
