Nothing was going my way today. After the NFP release, I put on a few trades. The first was a short t-notes trade that ended up turning violently against me within minutes. The other one was a long natgas trade that hit my stop and exceeded it by only 2-3 ticks before turning around in the right direction. I would have made a nice profit of course if I wouldn't have used a stop in the first place. Obviously, there's no prize when you finish second in this business. The third trade was my second attempt with a long wheat/short corn spread trade (you know the one I had lost yesterday). Well, although the conditions were even better than yesterday, this spread only produced another losing trade today. One point to mention here: wheat has not sold at a discount to corn more than 3-4 times in the last 25 years. So, this is a rare event. Unless, we would be confronted here to a new normal in the grains market, this discount isn't likely to hold for very long. Therefore, believe or not, I might be back at it again on Monday given a chance. Thanks God, the other trades I made were winners including a long gold/short euro spread and one on crude oil. Net result for today -$1220 trading 2 contracts (commissions included). Details below. Have a good weekend!
