  6. Reality in the trenches: main trading computer is sketchy today. Had a monitor die on the second system. Charts kept freezing up in the first computer. I wrenched my back this morning while watering Holly's horses and goats. I'm suffering from a head cold that migrated to my "stomach" after lunch.

    Was short ES 1181.50 premarket and 1179.00 at the 10am turn. Should have just crawled back on the couch and let that run until now. Instead I covered way too soon and missed most of the early downside to follow.

    Hindsight is such a beautiful thing.

    These are the distractions we deal with in real-time when trading real money. Life doesn't care about first session of the new year, FOMC minutes, wide ranging swings, etc.

    Traded 6-lots ES and 1-lot ER a few times each. No records set, but we'll pay some bills.
