1.) the PnF bars are helping to find a breakout

2.) it's difficult to see here. the trend was still up, but the down volume started to increase.
sign of possible reversal

3.) the VWTPO is a good indication for a pullback

What kind of a fib pullback? 38% 50% 62%?

what's next?

nice action today. but what is the next target? another leg down, or a rebound? normally that kind of news would be a terrific buying opportunity. the day greece and portugal entered the eu, you knew there could be trouble. so that shouldn't be a big surprise.

since we reached more or less the mentioned 1220 area (think 1217 was high), I would take a neutral position for now. from a technical view it looks pretty bearish. from a fundamental view still very bullish.

who knows, maybe the fed has some interesting news on wednesday.

computer programs working overtime

has been a while since I've seen that kind of 5 min candles. 3 in a row with a range of about 40 points. very impressive.

a real paradise for trading.

I've followed Jeff Clark's market view for some time and he seems pretty accurate with his market analysis ...... (post #16) ....... now, let's wait for our think tank to come up with some awesome reason why this correction occurred ..... oh, wait a second, they already did .... it is a trader error ...... wooooow ......

Stock selloff may have been triggered by a trader error - Yahoo! Finance

Of course it wasn't. That rumour started the rounds within 30 minutes of the crash, how would anyone have known by that time. In anycase it was reported to be Citigroup who made the error and they have denied it and investigations have also not found any such error or out of the ordenary trading.

Now the new excuse is 'computer glitch' and they are investigating what the glitch may have been. So it's now a computer glitch, but they don't know what glitch it was. Sounds like the 'glitch' of panicing robots to me. Or maybe it was a some just a bunch of fat cat bankers all shorting the hell out of the market while they knew it was vunerable.

It's just spin to try to put confidence into the market that the bubble didn't burst. 95% of traders know its spin, but it dosn't stop it from becoming the headline that the average person / investor sees on the news ' Computer Glitch Causes Crash', 'Dumb thumbs cause crash' etc etc.

It really annoys me !

To me, it boils down to this:

Retirement account = gold bars, safes full of cash, lots of guns

Day trading account = more volatility = good, regardless of why

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)
