  8. just started trading real cash (again) wednesday.
    yeah baby +$6.25 after commissions for today.
    +$63.73 for the week trading (1) 5 year note. i only trade the mornings around 8am-10:30am because of work.

    scratched (BE+1 tick) yesterday after a great entry - fear setting in.

    fear so far the problem. i scratched (BE) today because setup did not look good - was looking at wrong charts so covered but no fear.
    then scratched (BE+1 tick) because of upcoming reports (was long but didn't want to hold into 9:45 reports). but then setup looked good to fade the spike in 5 year notes. i was set to short on retry of spikes high. then pulled the order when price hit my sell limit. setup looked great but fear set in.

    need to work on the 'don't worry' about losing attitude.
  9. 73+ NQ heh :D

    who's your daddy?


    ps drinks on me ! :)
