Gonna keep this short as there isn't really much to say about today's trading and there's other stuff I need to attend to tonight.

I let a relatively good morning go to waste as I put on a few too many pointless trades and ended up losing quite a bit.

I guess I just couldn't sit still during the sideways markets that persisted the entire day.

Though there were some movers on the day (RSH and WEN in particular), I wasted most of my gains made in these stocks in poorly timed entries on other stocks and I probably gave those poorly timed positions a little too much room to roam before I cut my losses.

No good or bad trades.

Just waiting for tomorrow....
