1:55pm CDT - Had some chances to make a number of these losers winners, but going for bigger targets was not working.  So clear in hindsight.  As usual, my discretionary trade management sucked.

In other news, I'm glad to see the new 1/10 size Micro E-mini futures are doing so well.  Today for example, their volume compared to full E-mini contract was 13% for MES/ES, 15% for MYM/YM, 30% for MNQ/NQ, and 22% for M2K/RTY.  Not bad!  Saw this trading contest too if anyone is interested.

1:25pm CDT - I'm such a newb! Too long of break or researched too many ideas in past week?  Traded new method today and took 8 signals before I realized I was trading them the wrong direction. Epic Fail! You just never know when the market or your mind will throw a wrench in your plan.

1:25pm CDT - Testing day on a Gold method. Did not go well. Guess I was the April Fool! In other foolish news, I was hit with a $15 inactivity fee on 1 of my 2 accounts that I apparently didn't trade at all in 1st Qtr.  Thank you Gain Capital!  (my equity I report on this blog is the combined total of the 2 trading accounts I have)
