This journal is about a overall approach to trading the Emini market. I've only been trading it live for a couple of weeks so the rules may need to be modified as we go along. I'll keep the rules in a notepad file and post them when they change with some sort of revision # so anyone following can know if they have the current rules. I plan to document the method, illustrate with screen snapshots, report trade entries/exits in realtime, and post summary information as the journal develops. First off let me say I no longer have any other means of making a living outside of trading. I'll probably cut short some trades just to bank the money (scared money). If I do, I'll only post the results of what I do and not what the method does. I'm currently trading 6 emini contracts per-trade and plan to grow it to 10 contracts if this method keeps making money over the next month or 2. 10 contracts is important to me because at that level if I only make 1 point per-day then I'll have a six figure income (about 3x what I need to get by). For today I'm going to show each piece of information I use and try to explain what it's for one at a time. After I'm done with all the pieces I'll post a couple of trades from last week and show how everything came together to make the trade. I use four screens with this method so it may be confusing for some people to follow. Please be patient. I'll try to simplify everything as much as I can and hopefully we can have a good positive journal.
