I can name a dozen different things better than staring at charts




Back at it again in the office for a few trades after the Memorial Day break. I took one trade more than I wanted to, fat finger a short in CL, I closed it quickly for a breakeven trade, ironically, it continued moving down, No regrets, I'm working on trading only the morning session, if the position is working past lunch, I will stick with it until a profit stop is hit.
