Dummy day trading #36 17-Oct-2006: YM Long trade closed

Dear diary,

Market seems to know my frustration(just fed up with them) over those people who are questioning dummy trading. It gave me some small rewards today. Short position of YM was established below the low of 6th candle (945am NY time candle). That was a fast trade. Target at Fib extension 61.8% was achieved at 8th candle.
Cash market was losing -90 points. I chose to close my position since first target was hit. One trade closed with 2.38-R gain (27 YM points gain)

Trade Grade:
Trade score: 1: Target hit
Execution score: 1: Followed trade as dictated in my plan

Here is the beauty. Kiss her.

  1. when ugly was banking 20R/month, they were quiet…now he is sharing the battle that every trader faces, and they pile on…at least the dummy traders will have most of their equity left when things do turn around

    btw, how is your cat’s trading going?
