Who knows, this might be just another short-lived gratuitous and facetious thread. Too early to tell. So what's up with the title? Well, now that I've finally automated my trading system, I want to take things slow and trade a smaller account on the side. Personally, I've been trading for too long and, being no different from other greedy traders, I was too damn obsessed about money. My obsession had no limit. I'm sure a lot of you can relate. C'mon, fess up, you know who you are. So without further ado, let me get right to the point. My goal is to make $300 trading 1 ES contract. Why $300? Considering there are 22 trading days in any given month, that would be $6,600 profit for the month. Geez, ain't that enough to live on? Yeah, I'm a born-again minimalist. For those who are not in the know, 1 ES point is $50. So I would need to score 6 points. This could be done in a single trade, or in multiple trades. Either way, the objective is to make $300 and close shop. No dicking around afterward, as they say in the boondocks. Needless to say, this also applies to the losses as well. If, in case, I lose $300, I must unplug the computer. So without further ado, let's begin our journey into the discovery of the Tao of Minimalistic Trading.
