KEEPING THE RISK TIGHT IS KEY


In slow times like the recent days, I find NQ to be the ideal trading product, as it moves a bit more than ES, giving me more trading opportunities.

This morning I missed part of the action as I was trying to set up a screen recording program, but I was still able to take a some nice trades.

After this nice rally (which I completely missed..), there was some sideways action, but it looked like they wanted to go take the 40 level so I got in with a small position at 35, only to get stopped out one point lower. So I waited for the price to come back to the LVN of the higher range VP and got in long as soon as some buyers stepped in at 32.75 and got out at 36. Then shorted the 40.50 to 36.50, then again another short from 37.5 to 34.50 and 33.25

I don't mind at all taking a 1 or 2 points loss as long as I can get 4 points or more on my profitable trades.

Risk Disclosure

This site is for educational purposes only. Past results are not indicative of future returns.

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
