ES options expiration

Big Boyz will first clear out the options by dropping the value and destroying the premium---than buying them back and letting price come back up----then down again…


This is a standard maneuver that we could use to our advantage.
All we need is the price point that the Big Boyz would like ES to be for settling their open positions and the Put/Call Ratio.
cheers

ES options expiration

$1,375


Let's say Big Boyz have the same number in mind; so next week at some point in time we should expect a low around this level. -- minus few pt of course -- depends of the traders who will have market stop orders

I'm still learning the ES behaviour but in gold I've witnessed a 10-20 pt slippage during such moves -- see @ Is ES market manipulated?

Lesson learned, I hope

I went against what the market was telling me and instead went with what my expectations of the market were at 7:45AM. and went Long 1,403.

… than when market went down … I panicked and exited -- lost 4pt.

Lesson: I should manage my personal filters better so I can see more clearly what market has to offer.

Hope this helps other traders

Hey I just realized this could be a good thread.

It will be about how to manage ourselves, our personal filters, and control our perception, so we can see more effectively of what the market is telling us, for example when to when to get in and when to get out.

Mike is this new thread is ok with you -- I just don't want to receive another warning from you.
Btw, I searched Emotional Intelligence on your website with zero results

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Yes, no worries.
I am playing for a longer term that a couple of days.

Successful people will do what unsuccessful people won't or can't do!
