This week's result:
This week vs last week:
Over the years that I have traded, I found that it is not difficult to make 5k in a month trading futures - I simply traded without stops. I also found out that it is not difficult to lose 5k in half or even a quarter of that time - just trade without stops.
I have this wonderful spreadsheet that I've kept with me for a long time which shows me exactly how to go about managing my position sizing in order to grow my account exponentially. I haven't had the chance to use it because I haven't passed the criteria of being even consistent with my entries and exits. I know for a fact that I am a day-trader and I like fast moving instruments that are not crazy, but other than that, it seems I haven't quite settled on a method of identifying high probability trades, of how I would enter and exit a trade. The reason is because I am spoilt for choices, and I don't want to have to choose. Simply put, I want them all. And I didn't think that was greed. Ha.
So I have come to a point where I realize that if I don't stop sabotaging my account, I might as well stop trading because if I don't, it will soon become a very expensive hobby.
Here's to stupidity:
