Today was a great day. I posted my plan before the open and I actually didn’t take the short & long that I had planned on, but that’s ok because all my trades were in my plan. I tweeted a few thoughts about the plan, for example I didn’t short the move up to the CLVN because it was a strong move up and because German unemployment news was due out.
So I took only two real money trades actually. First was a short at yday’s high. Second I bought a pullback to a yday LVN & today’s DVPOC.
After that I decided to trade long only and do it on sim. I took a few more trades on sim and all were profitable, including one on EuroStoxx. I’m looking at Eurostoxx & Euro as secondary markets to trade when I don’t have a setup on the Bund.
What’s interesting is both my trades worked, so there was no scratching. Both trades I stuck to my planned target for the second contract and didn’t cut the winners short. As a result my expectancy was 5 ticks per contract per trade and that’s double my average for the month (0.02). If I could do this every day then it’d be great.
I’ll post the month stats later and will be releasing my spreadsheet very soon have released my spreadsheet used to make my stats! Finally!
