Crude Oil Day Trading Journal Commentary:

Limit myself to 3 trades per session (RULE) I must follow for my time at Topstep Trader now. I will record some of the trading session today is day 2 in FTP.

I must have a reason to enter a trade on a Monday!

YouTube Live Day Trading Session (recorded):


If there is a no trade day … then take a 1 to 3 tick hit and trade for the next day so I can make sure this day counts in my day trading plan in FTP at TST. (TopStepTrader).

Make sure I make a good opening trade (do not) trade the open of the crude oil futures market. Be patient don’t be in a hurry to trade.

I will make the market show me the way … We have been tradng at pivot for most of the morning trading session.

Finally, the crude oil market broke down … I had to be quick to take profits today in my day trading session.

I had 2 trades for a net of plus 55 ticks today day trading in the crude oil futures market.
