/CL Stats

I guess as long as I'm playing with sweet crude oil, I'll just keep posting stats until something happens to move me along. Oops the date is chopped off the photo, but it's 5/2/14 on Think or Swim;s Cash & Sweeps page.



The thing to remember in this experiment is that I started with $5000 on March 25, never having tried futures before, and it seems to be working. I only do one contract at a time. (the limits of a $5K fund as the margin requirement is $3500 approx. per contract. I suppose I could actually do 2 now?)

As you can see, by the BOT (bought) and SOLD, I've been playing the upside. Is there anything else these days? Jeez.
