This weeks Results 5/16/2011-5/20/2011

Above are 3 charts of the July Crude Futures. If you waited and watch and waited until the setups formed - crude presented really great trades this week - 1 on Wednesday, 1 on and Thursday and a bunch on Friday. I was not watching on Wednesday. Thursday I was stupidly wasting time on the Dow Futures when the the Thursday trade happened. On Friday, I watched carefully and took the trade on the break of 99. Unfortunately, I did not size up and I could not move my target stops before getting filled. I made $400 when I should have made a lot more. I was not watching during the bounce.
I had an okay week for myself. I made made $400 from the crude trade and $300 on a stock trade but wasted a lot of money doing stupid trades on bad setups in the Dow Futures.
Again as always - I would have had a much better week if I attacked when I should have attack and SAT ON MY HANDS. I really need a person to help me sit on my hands.
The results:
Crude Futures: +543
Dow Futures: -405
Stock Trades: +321
Total: +459

I am not dead yet but I tried to die - 5/14/2011

The last couple of weeks has been crazy. As I stated before I was going on vacation. My other half and I went to Hawaii for 8 days and it was great. Not being use to the heat and humidity was a bit of a problem but I love my time there.
The only problem is I made a near deadly mistake. I drank water out of a city fountain that the birds used more often than humans. I did this on the last day (thank god) and within days of being home, I could not keep anything in my system.
Over the course of the next 7 days, I lost 7 pounds, had a fever of 104.5 and was seeing things. At first it confused the doctors because each morning I had no fever but then my fever would peak at dinner. Really strange.
Anyway the doctors got me on Cipro and now I am better but still weak.
I did do a little trading over the course of these 3 weeks and as I have done for years - I try always to post my results.
Futures: -127
Stocks day trades: +186
Stocks swing trades: -191
Total: -132 although I am sitting on a swing trade where I am up about $2000.
Hopefully I am back to a normal life again.
