What a great trading day.

As I said in the last post I was having a tough month after a fantastic trading performance in April.

Have you ever heard that its better to be lucky than smart? Well, today I feel both lucky and smart. I closed my short S&P Futures position at 896, pretty close to the lows of the session. I lost 2 full points in the contracts that I was carrying, but it was enough to put be back in the plus column for this month.

I had a few scalp trades in oil and despite losing some bucks in this ill timed short position, I am again profitable in May.

Now I only have the short oil position, but I am very confident that I am going to make a few points in that position. Oil was lifted by the positive sentiment in the stock market and I think being long oil at these levels is a pretty asinine play. Time will tell if my confidence in this trade is misplaced or not. Have you read the Krugman article I have recommended you?

Have a good trading day. I will be back tomorrow.
