Hey Guys,

I have been following/trading the 6E and wanted some feedback from other 6E guys...

I have been trying to trade the first 1.5 hours of the European open as well as the US open..now I'm looking to possibly add another time slot, and was wondering what times do you guys prefer to trade the 6E?

Mostly between 2AM eastern and 10AM eastern.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I'm just wanting to confirm this, but the cme pit for the 6E closes at 2 CST?

I ask because today, volume died well before 2:00 CST.

What would be the optimum time to trade after the lunch slow-down?

Well I'm back again...this time I think 1.3130 can be had now that the wind is at my back.

Being that it's the euro it probably will chop around all over the place but I'm thinking it should make it there this time.

I hope I don't have to come back again with my tail between my legs but thought I would throw this out again and see what you guys think.....

Honestly I haven't spent much time looking at it but it sounds plausible just taking a quick look...any thoughts ?


Am I the only one that saw this....Might be a good place to short tonight...about 20 pips over todays high with a 20 pip stop....any thoughts ?

Good call although when the market was selling off down to 1.2930 I thought it would have eaten your stops for breakfast. Truth be told, I don't bother making predictions, it ruins my trading! Strangely in a sort of voyeuristic way I like to see what other people are doing like you are making public, but I don't use the information in any way for my own trading. OK if God came down and told me that tomorrow the Euro will hit 2.0000 tomorrow then I would undoubtedly go long, but it's like that clicheed old sign at the bar: In God we trust - all others pay cash.

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.

To be honest I haven't been paying a lot of attention tto the euro lataly and when I go back and look I just post what I see after just taking a quick look and that's why I ask others if they have any thoughts...kind of just bringing attention to it.
My primary focus these days has been the TF ...I've backed off from the euro with all this crisis stuff going on though what I throw out here is not necessarily just blather just some areas to maybe keep an eye on and look for PA if it makes any sense kind of thing.

Your smart to not blindly take trade advice and just see if it makes sense to you. I don't blame you for ignoring what others say...that cost me more money than I care to think about. I think over time though if you were to see someone be consistantly right (not saying I am) then you might take into consideration what they are saying more readily but like you say trade decisions should make sense to you and pulling the trigger should be a result of your plan.

A "crisis" has nothing to with trading. If you consider price action, the big picture tells everything. No one fools the market.

If anything, moments of "so called" crisis reflect even more truly the emotion of fear and greed, and of the 5 stages of human behaviours. The patterns on the chart are not random.

...Your telling me for example to trade as I always would knowing some crazy headline out of Greece could come out at any time and wipe out my stops etcetera....I prefer to just trade something else during those periods

Edit: I know what your saying and don't necessarily disagree but I'm talking about being exposed to whipsaws and spikes and so forth that can and do happen in these periods

No one fools the market.

I think it would be better said "no one fools the market for long" Case in point, the Fed's goosing of the equity markets. Once the LSAP was over, equities started to realize they were walking on thin air and ended up free falling. News and headlines do affect the market but sometimes it's only on a limited basis and dependent upon many variables such as source, etc. which will often create a knee jerk reaction which plays into price action. The Euro has been very good at that lately. If you disregard key economic events and announcements, you will definitely get hurt.
