Consistency in the Air?

Pretty quiet day over here. Took two "bounce trades" one got a par, the other went for a solid winner. These are the trades that are designed to let run and don't have predefined targets. Both were great trades and I did manage to perfectly execute and manage them both.

However, the second trade really spiked the interest of my evil douche-bag gremlin. My trade rules state that i'm to only get to par on a close through the high or low of the swing. And the trade bounced around for a full 16 minutes before doing just that. I thought the trade was done for soooo many times and the evil douche-bag gremlin was screaming "get to par you dipshit!". But I didn't. I beat that gremlins ass with a bat, stuck to my rules and had a damn nice trade.


If I keep this kind of crap up I might accidentally turn into a profitable trader - what a weird reality that would be.

Trade Results:
2 Trades, 1 Par, 1 Winner
Gross P/L: $120.00/per

Good stuff matt. Keep up the good work. Seems like you have some consistancy going there. You keep trading like that, you will reach your goals in no time.
