    Journals are very the time you reach to end and ask yourself whether you got any return of your time spent in scouring these find only number of your eye glasses increased by .25 point.

    Please do not feel offended...some threads are really lenghty that even best search engine (google or whatever) will fail to find right thread :)

    Anyway, if you want to really share, please list your best trade of year 2006 alongwith your analogy/strategy like:

    a) Contract
    b) Date of entry
    c) Paragragh on why did you this contract to trade.
    d) Trade Entry strategy (last price, your entry price, stop and exit strategy if any).
    e) Exit (Date of exit, on going price, exit price, net profit and why/how did you choose to exit).

    Thanks for taking initiative to share your best trade.

    It will help if one person list only ONE yet best trade (so far) of year 2006 covering ALL the original point.

    Please give date of trade entered, running price when you considered entry, your analogy that how did you choose this trade and what was your Stop and exit strategy and what profit you finally made, otherwise putting any reply to this thread will have no meanining.
