Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Buying into weakness and Selling into strength

Warrent Buffet once said to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.

I know for myself, I concentrate on buying at a discount after sell side exhaustion and climaxes. While that's been my approach for a very long time but I can't exactly say I've consistently bought on down bars, moreseo after I've notice early enough that the selling is getting bought into by players with much larger bankrolls than myself.

What are you guys' thoughts on this subject though. I find buying strength/liquidity on breakouts to be tough business and skews risk/reward horribly against the trader much (not all) of the time. The market always seems to be in a constant state of backtesting breakouts and demand areas.
