I have found that trading ES has gotten fairly "challenging" for me this summer. My profitable trades are smaller on average, and I have a larger proportion of losing trades than was previously the case. Equally frustrating, I also find myself missing meaningful moves more often because they were preceded by messy price action that precluded my consideration. I'd like to think that it is a "summer thing" as has been the case in the past, but I am also well aware that previously profitable trading methods can lose their effectiveness over time. And so, I am always looking over my shoulder. With this in mind, I would be interested to know how other traders here on ET have been doing with their ES trading lately. Specifically, I refer to intraday trading since I enter and exit a few times a day. However, I would welcome comments from position traders as well.
