Hi Everyone, Been away from ET for awhile but I check things out from time to time. It looks like there are still some nuggets on wisdom being passed along so I thought I would start another journal. Here is my first try at day trading:Working on Consistent Profitability At the end of my journal I called it quits because I really wasn't enjoying trading and had way too many emotional issues that came along with trading. Ok...so why am I starting another journal? Well, I have been options swing trading for the past couple of years and doing quite well. I must admit, IMO,its not too difficult to do well in the market the ways its been for the past few years. But, I contribute a lot of the success to what I learned day trading and reading charts. Not only picking big winners, but one thing that I immediately noticed was exiting out of my losers or taking profits before a big reversal. When I first started trading options that was my biggest flaw and source of major drawdowns. Those have been minimized for sure. I'm still options swing trading, but with the choppy market as of late, there are fewer good set-ups thus Im in fewer trades. So I thought it would be a good time to revisit day trading to see if I can improve on my trading in general. I have no grand aspirations of doing trading full time right now. I just want to keep trading better and better. I am not too sure if I will continue with my options trading or not while I do this. We will see how my time management works out and if I lose focus on one end or the other. I'm not posting any options stuff here. Maybe that will be for another time. I am going to be trading the ES as that is what I have been comfortable with and although I have not been day trading for the past couple of years, I watch it on almost a daily basis. I should mention that I already starting with this little project a couple of weeks ago and have been operating on somewhat on a B/E basis, but the past week I had a few bad days and bad trades. Perfect time to take a break over the long weekend. On Monday, I will start with my first chart for the second try which is open for all the feedback you guys want to give me.
