Fri. 7/28 -0.8%

2:45pm CDT - Nothing like waiting 3 hours for price to move somewhere, only to be taken out. ES is dead.  After a great start, I only netted +$37 on it this week. It is good for practicing patience but I really prefer my trades to move sooner than later.  I'm going to do more homework on my new method. 6E looked okay after a very preliminary look. We'll see...

1:30pm CDT - One discretionary trade today to end the month on a good note. YTD -11.9% (if I had held my crude long from last week, I'd be up 4% YTD.) Hopefully will turn the ship around in the 2nd half. Happy 4th of July to all, Happy Birthday America!

Thurs. 6/01 -3.7%

11:15am CDT - Sabotaging myself to start out the month. Chopped on 3 trades prior to inventory report, then I had the brilliant idea to put in bracket orders to capture any inventory spike. F'ing brilliant. Slippage on both orders too of course just for good measure.  CL may get kicked to the curb again for awhile.
