Optional's futures and options trades

Discussion in 'Journals' started by Optional, Mar 9, 2008.

  1. I'm relatively new to the options and futures world._ I have been invested in stocks for a long time, but have just started trading commodities._ Since I don't have all day to follow the markets, I have subscribed to a trading newsletters and am going to post the trades they recommend and how I do._ I'm not sure if I will be able to follow the advice 100%, but I will place trades suggested and try to use my own exit strategies.
    My account size is $50,000._
    I will include commissions of $35/RT ALL IN.
    At the end of each trading day I will try to update the trades I have entered and also report when I exit either at a profit or loss.
    Not sure if I'm going to mention the name of the market letter since it's not really relevant.
  2. Ok. Today I placed the following trades.

    Sold 2 April euro currency ECJ8 153 calls and bought 2 April euro currency ECJ8 155 calls for a credit of 95


    Sold 2 June Eurodollar 9775 puts and bought 2 June Eurodollar 9725 puts for a credit of 22 ticks
