IncreaseNow's "Sell/Short" Futures Journal **this is a real/live active trading journal. My futures account has been freshly funded with real $$$ and all trading is for real. No demo or papertrading** Why not stocks? need too much cash Why not options? clumbsy platform and takes a huge move in underlying to make real $$$ Why not forex? did not like the move down to 100-1 leverage and looks like heading to 10-1 leverage...oh boy. Also, do not like that there is one centralized exchange with actual transparent trading with actual volume reporting Why "Sell/Short"? You must become a specialist to suceed...I believe I have better ability to perceive/discern "sell/short" set ups rather than "buy/long" set-ups...I have heard other traders mention this also...so, with the futures contracts I am trading there will always be at least one (most likely more) contract giving a strong sell signal SPECS: Daytrading Futures only with daytrade margins FUTURES CONTRACTS TRADING ES YM NQ 30 YR CME Globex EURO CME Globex AUD CME Globex CAD CME Globex JYEN CME Globex SFRANC Comex Gold (large contract) Crude Oil (CL large contract) What will be in this journal: perhaps some trade mentions...might mention some winners and might mention some losers. This will be a place for sharing observations, some trades and to disuss my thoughts and other's thoughts on the various contracts mentioned...not gonna mention very trade. Well, let the fresh trading journey begin afresh...!!
