/CL Trading versus The Real World Job!

I've started a new job - accounting/office management on a part time basis and it's taken me away from my little papertrading venture here. Not that I haven't sneaked in a few trades this past week, but it's very difficult to trade if you are not sitting at the computer and focused. I have been FAR from focused as I learn a new company's routines and make plans for systemizing their computer, et al. I'm enjoying it~!

Here's the update on my /CL project. I think I've been up and down ike a pogo stick, thus losing $27 in total since May 1st. Too boring to imagine. But that's what happens when you're not paying attention!:

  • Date--------------- # of Trades--Daily Profit---$5K Fund Balance

  • May 1, 2014 (count the trades yourself)----------$7,528.62
  • May 9, 2014 -------45 trades --($27,44)-----------$7,501.18


  • Anyway, with trading, like anything else in life...you have to be kind to yourself. Be very careful and hone in on the task at hand if you want results!
