No worries mate--rollover is one of my least favorite things to do, if for no other reason than the fact that familiar numbers have to change. And the question of back-adjusting amounts and procedures are different among different traders, so really the way to roll a futures contract and view past data is not a science (unfortunately). One of the things I don't miss about crude, I only have to roll 4x a year, compared to 12x.

I went max down today. Recently read in Dalton's book that a full out trend day is the most dangerous, and even though I agreed when I read it, it does not make me invulnerable. Even though I have been nailed by it many, many times, it still can sneak up on me.

Looking at the MP chart, the thin and elongated shapre is easy to see now, but harder to see during. One time framing is the only clue, but one time framing also ends and becomes a different day typ more often than not.

What a reversal crude had today. Very surprising to me.

I read Ryan's post, made a winning trade, a losing trade, then listened to him.

Of all the trading pains, max down is the most painful to me. It is temporary, but it suggests complete failure for the day, and nothing I can do about it.

I would like to say it is easier for me to deal with them, and I guess in the context of how I handle them, or whether I can stop, or if I take it into the next day, then yes it is easier.

But the momentary feeling is not that much improved. How I respond to that feeling is. But it is a learned response, and does not come naturally, requires effort and awareness every time.

I have found I typicaly do not trade as well the day of rollover. Not that I can explain why, maybe just the sudden shift in price that seems to want to stay in my head.
