CrudeOil Intraday Trading Diary - alex_fin

#1
Dear Friends,

Iam attempting to record my trades in this trading diary .

I am trying to follow a system , and hope this diary will help me to follow the system rigorously. i will write about the system in few days as it takes some time to explain about the system .

Trading capital is 60000/-(Sixty Thousand Only). Trading is done with 2 lots of crudeoil , as long as my capital is more than the margin required for 2 lots.

If there is not enough capital for margin of 2 lots due to losses,trading is carried with 1 lot , and if there is no capital to trade 1 lot also , thats JAIHIND (goodbye) for the time being.

If account grows :) (yeah..Dreamz Unlimited), another lot will be added after 50000/- of profit.

Chart looked at is crudeoil 1 hour chart. Margin for 1 lot is 26140/- for today.

Please Dont look at percent of appreciation or percent of depreciation of capital as these trades are overly over leveraged trades.


Trade1:

Long 2 lots @ 5229 SL hit @ 5215

Points = 5215-5229 = -14; Loss= -14*200 - 150(brokerage+charges) = -2950

Trade2:

Short 2 lots @ 5215 Trailing SL hit @ 5211

points = 5215-5211 = 4; Profit = 4*200-150(brokerage+charges) = 650

Trade3:

Long 2 lots @ 5211 closed @ 5209 at 11:54pm

Points = 5209-5211 = -2; Loss= -2*200 - 150(brokerage+charges) = -550

Total Points loss = -14+4-2 = -12

Total Loss = -2950+650-550 = -2850

Capital = 60000-2850 = 57150

Happy Trading,

Alex

Dear Friends,

Alex,

very nice to see someone with similar resolve here. I too trade crude daily.

I started with 1 lot, made consistent money; became impatient, pumped in more money for 2nd lot, made money. However, tried to experiment and lost. Now down to 1 lot.

My advice to you as a fellow trader:
Please stick to your strategy and stay disciplined.

That said, i wish you all the very best in this venture.

Do share your style, methods and charts if possible.

cheers.
