My apologies for whatever I said that made you felt the need to say my apologies! I was busy and just relayed that data from my perspective. If you feel that it's something that is to really be looked out for then by all means share more with us and enlighten us!

Sorry probably overly sensitive on my behalf. Seemed like you asked what other people were thinking pre-market and then immediately dismissed my comments as they didnt match your style of trading. As I said sorry - probably just me being oversensitive,

Shorted retest up to yesterday's highs and upper part of the overnight distribution I've been mentioning. VWAP also lined up here for extra confirmation.

I don't have any strong expectations for how far this will/won't go. Just letting it run or stop me out after a +40 scale.

Trade update 11:49CST I'm sticking with my pre-mkt plan here and going ahead and flattening this short. I just don't want to be in a longer term short trade up here. Happy with the 40 ticks.

Are you using 24/7 profile or just from the pit open?

simply too much absorption of the buyers so far today... technically we're bullish, but bull orderflow getting swallowed easily so far.

So I wanted to be a buyer today per my pre-mkt analysis... and it doesn't "look" like that would be a good play...

I bought on the open and got scaled, but then had to scratch the rest per my orderflow comments earlier. The trade just wasn't there.

Next time I bought was at 81.75. I campaigned around that position until flattening at 82.82

The point is that even a rotational day can still provide great opportunity to act on your directional bias.


Here are the trades for that 2nd buy and all of it's adds/scales

Well done, may I ask how many ticks are your initial stops?
