I was very happy with my futures trading this month.  What killed my month was I gave out on an option play i had been rolling for months and took a $550 loss on.

This was a month of back and forth. I started trading much better after the 15th but still have the big problem of letting the trades work.  If I sat on my hands after the 15th - I would have been 16-4 and had a nice couple of weeks.  So what happened on the 15th?  I do not know.  The 14th was a real bad day for me and if you took away just that day - I would have had an up month.

Slowly I am getting away from too much options trading and trying to focus on ES trading.  Not a good month even thou I was close to break even. After closely looking at my trades, way too many of them I would have graded poor. In fact only 17 trades, i was happy with my entry and exit.  That number should be at 80-90 percent for me to be at the level I want to be.
