Emini Dow Trading Journal May 23, 2017

May 24th, 2017

Today was a fast day. A quick short at 20920 and exit at 20900. I finished up around 9:40 AM !!  Spreadsheet is showing my gains of $2,630.64 (minus that 5 bucks from yesterday) and a win rate of 77.78%.  With only 5 sessions left in May I think I can safely say it’s been a great month.  I will probably start trading 4 contracts in June but I would like to see my gains around 3K this month as I am adding it up like I discussed in the Money Management Video.

Here’s the charts, and spreadsheets and hopefully we get another winner today!

We took a loser today and had 1 tick of negative slippage. When you look at the spreadsheet it says I am up $2,351.16 – you need to deduct 5 dollars from that as one of the 3 contracts had 1 tick slippage.

I had missed a long winner and if you look at the chart you will see my short actually went 17 ticks in the money before reversing!

 

Win rate is 76.47% for the month!!  Here are the statements and screenshots:

Today was a bit of a lucky day! I jumped in on a long signal and it quickly went up and then right back down.  I was pretty sure I was getting stopped out. That’s ok, it happens!  But it ended up bouncing about 3 or 4 ticks from my stop and made a 20 tick gain!  Ended up a great day as this trade was done around 940 AM!!

This is now the end of the 3rd week of my posting about this system publicly. I’ve been in 16 trades (one day I cheated and took 2 trades)  out of the 16 trades 13 have won and 3 have lost.  After you add up commissions and fees my net profit is $2,671.68. This is just trading 3 contracts!

I will start trading 4 contracts in June and if June is as good as May I will trade 5 contracts in July.  The premise here is to slowly build it up while only using 2% per each trade as I discussed in my previous video.

Have a great weekend and here are the statements, charts, etc:

I took a long trade this morning about 15 minutes before the bell. I filled 20550 and bailed at 20570.  With the fantastic moves the past couple of days I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t thinking about going for more gains – like 30 – 50 ticks. In fact with higher volatility it’s prudent to widen out your profit and stop loss. However, the VIX is still at very low levels (14.66 at the close).

I’ve had a lot of questions about scaling up my contract size.  For the record, I do plan on  going to 4 contracts in June – assuming this month is a nice month. As of right now, it’s a great month. I’m enjoying 80% winners. I’m up $2392.20 (that includes commissions and exchange fees).  And that’s only trading 3 contracts.  I will take last months gains and my gains from May and move up 1 or 2 contracts. Probably one contract but MAYBE 2. We’ll have to see how the rest of this month plays out.

In any event here are the statements and all the other screenshots I include daily. As always, feel free to email/call with any questions:

Today was an interesting day.  I had family over and a lot of distractions. Long story short, I missed the first 3 trades!  I caught the 4th trade for a nice 20 tick winner.  With the move up in volatility there were some real nice moves as you can see in the chart below.  Pre-market is down again this morning (May 18 as I write this) so it could be another wild day.  But until then, here are the trading statements for the dow emini trade:

We took a loser today and a quick one at that!  I went short at 20972 and stopped at 20992.   That takes our win-rate down to 7.92% and our gains to $1,833.24.  10 winners and 3 losers so far this month.

I did a video yesterday that I think you will enjoy. In this video below I discuss money management. Give it a view when you can!  Below is the video, and tradings statements:

Sorry for the late post but my son’s birthday party is this afternoon and I’ve been running around like a mad dog trying to get ready. Finally found a moment to update the blog.  So far May has treated us well!  We’ve had 11 trades with 9 winners and 2 losers.  After you deduct commissions and fees, trading 3 contracts I am up $1,874.28 with 81.82 percent win rate.  With day trading margins so low you really don’t need a ton of capital to trade something like this.  As time goes on I will, of course, add more contracts.  But even trading one contract you’d be up $624.76!

In any event yesterday was a quick day with a long triggered at 20845 and an exit of 20865 for a nice 20 tick gain.  Well I’m off to the party – enjoy the weekend!! Here’s the statements:

Today was an interesting day. My one trade a day became two trades today!  I posted a video discussing what I did below. Basically I took a trade that was invalid. It lost and it cost me a winner.  I decided to take a second trade so I could recover.  I ended the day flat. Below are the trade statements and the video!
