TRADE JOURNAL MARCH 9TH HIGH VOLATILITY

Good morning everyone! Today was pretty volatile to start off with. The indexes were circuit breaker halted to the downside right off the open. Once things settled out we had some decent opportunity I was actually green a couple of points, and gave it back plus 1.25. That is a very small loss and am completely fine with that. As volatile as it was today that loss could have easily been more significant.

I was trying to review the trade but there looks to be some sort of issues with my positions window in AMP futures and will have to rework it out later. Normally the trades populate on the chart but I have been having a few issues with small technical issues in sierra charts, no biggie as it hasn’t hurt my trading.

I need to take a moment after each trade to journal it and screen shot it. This morning everything was moving so quickly that I wasn’t able to do that this time. I know I jumped in on a dip as the ES was moving to the upside, but, my stop was too close and I was stopped out fairly quickly. In high volatile situations like this I need to move my stop just a bit further out!

I hope all of you had a great day trading, here’s to tomorrow’s trading!!!
