11:05am CDT - Played it safe and got out before inventory report.  I noticed the same dollar gain made 1.1% yesterday but only 1.0% today, due to rounding.  Guess that means I'm heading in the right direction.

1:45pm CST - If you caught comments from yesterday, you know I averted a large CL loss by exiting my long that evening for a small gain.  It's nice when luck erases my stupidity!  Today had a couple "WTF-am-I-doing" moments so hopefully those are all past me for awhile.

Tues. 3/07 -2.7%

9:45am CST - Gold has as much volume as NQ and YM combined yet today was a good lesson how thin it can be.  21 ticks slippage on a stop on a short (Edit) LONG trade!  Many expletives were muttered. Then NQ shoots up at open, fails quickly into new lows, fakes me and other suckers out and marches up to new highs.  Some days you're the bug, some days the windshield.
