I guess it's hard for me to keep a promise. Yup, I'm back to looking at the CL again (for the umpteenth time). The price action in the CL is not as "clean-cut" as in the ES. Sometimes, it's downright unreadable/confusing to me. However, it's risk/reward is a lot better (over 2X better). This is basically the main reason that led me back to it. 1 CL winner can make up for 1 loser, whereas it'll take about 2 ES winners to just even out 1 loser.
I was somewhat distracted this past week by the CL (again) and by some personal matters. Was going back and forth looking at CL and ES charts. Missed some good trade setups, as a result. The ES can be slow and boring sometimes, but I need to just stick with it. Will concentrate solely on the ES and forgo (again) the CL. Also, am in the midst of dealing with some issues in Philly. Hopefully, the damage won't be significant this time around. Sigh.
The market was really slow up until about 10:30. Then it just tanked big time. Difficult for me to trade when prices moved this fast and this volatile. Suffice to say I didn't catch anything big off of any of today's major down moves. My runners were inefficient also. Will revert to trading single lots again.
