Trades on ES for Tues, 6-Jan-2009

My goal is $300 for the day. Today I grossed $337.50.

Total Trades = 17 (2.75 hrs from 12:36 pm to 3:21 pm EST)
Max Contracts Used at 1 Time = 2 ($500 margin/contract)
# Profitable Trades = 10 (59%)
# Costing Trades = 7 (41%)
Range of Profitable Trades = $50 to $225 (was trading in 1 contract positions)
Range of Costing Trades = $25 to 237.50

Total Profits = $1025.00
Total Costs = $678.50
Commissions = $43.89
Net = $269.67 (27% ROI of capital used)

Notes: I don't really remember what I did here, except that I was really distracted and didn't get much sleep the night before. Trading this day was so challenging and I'm not quite sure why. It seemed like a huge battle.

I made my goal far less and decided to just trade with 1 contract sizes and didn't really do legging in but maybe once or twice. It made trading a lot longer.
