Don't fight the fed.

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.

Ditto on that. Why fight the Fed? I'm expecting to take advantage of short opportunities but it I don't want to place myself in r/r ratios that I am uncomfortable and unfamiliar with. That being said, I am thinking about a longer term short swing in a few months.

I have to go with what the market action is giving me. I can't predict these events confidently enough to follow through.

Short on DJI now

Ok just took a short on IG index, my entry was 13985.5 - stop 14085.5

I don't feel that it will necessarily reach the 2007 high, i do feel that a big correction will happen soon.

Goals with this trade:

Well it all depends on how it pans out, if it drops but struggles at the 13920 area i may close there.

Ideally this would be a long term trade, but i'll only hold for more than a day or two if it shows clear signs of a reversal.

If Vista - Open MS 'Paint' and Paste into a new image, can then use the select rectange and do Image->Crop, then Save As new JPG before posting.

If Win7 just use the Windows snip tool.

Or lots like 3rd party tools like SnagIt, Jing, etc

Travel Well
