This is a journal where I will be trading my ES system exclusively and posting my account blotter at the end of the day. I have been trading futures full time for 2.5 years. It has been a journey with both many triumphs and failures... probably similar to what many experience on their path. I have a couple accounts where I trade stocks but wanted to fund a separate account with 5K initial margin for this system which is my baby. Why am I doing this journal? In part to inspire others, also for my own entertainment. Please save the "He's trying to sell something" or "Photoshopped" comments. If I try to sell you something then please disregard everything!!! The truth is NO ONE with a profitable system would EVER sell it. I would gaurd this system with my life. I will not post any details about the system but here are some of (what I consider obvious) basics. 1. Only trading ES. 2. No overnight positions. 3. Both long and short setups. Let me be clear. This system does not win everyday. I believe after all my experience that even the best systems have a win rate of about 60% when taking into account risk/reward ratios. This may not seem like much but remember the majority of a casinos are built with a 1-2% edge. I will commit myself to posting on this journal for two months. After which it will disappear into the Elite trader archives. My account should fund sometime today so I will hopefully post a blotter at the end of the day. I have seen many journals that go nowhere or get abandoned quickly. Will this be another one in the long list? Time will tell.
