12:35pm CDT - Slow markets, even CL. Everyone is trading the July contract already (double the June volume). Many brokers, mine at least, are allowing liquidation only on June.  ES very sleepy. Had a good signal while at lunch in kitchen.  Oh well...  Net for crappy week -$512.

12:55pm CDT - Quitting early to lock in a positive month.  All in all not too bad. I knew that one +20% week was not realistic and ended with +8% for month. That would be fine with me if I can repeat that most months.

Let's see, if you bought at a penny, and sold at $22 in a month (June contract price) = 220,000% return! Where can I store 1000 barrels for a month?

2:25pm CDT - Net $2560 for week. Not bad, +20%. Hopefully I can keep it in the days/weeks/months ahead.  I know it's only a matter of time before things won't go so well on a given day.  But it's nice to step on the gas a bit this week while conditions seemed favorable.  It still feels like a very fragile edge, if any, these past 7 trading days with this new ES approach.  As always, time will tell.

2:50pm CDT - Very tough day and frustrating with signals firing in many wrong places. Glad to come out ahead. I think I had 10 stop and reversals which is indicative of being caught in the chop.  By the way, thanks for recent comments Trin and Michael. Just realized I had turned "on" comment moderation (f'ing spammers) awhile ago and forgot. Will add checking this to daily routine.
