One of my areas to improve for 2012 is not to trade counter trade unless some REAL VOLUME shows up taking out resistance. DXY with A up, 6e , ES, TF etc.. with A down along with negative market internals were there all day long to guide a trader.

My last trade of the day was at 12.20 pm short from 99.92 and cover as usual early at 99.62. It was a RISK OFF day.

When " All the stars line up" set up. There is a reason I call Mark Fisher a genius. I could have waited all day to short at ideal resistance zone or let failed A up set up along with DXY and market internals guide me.

CL up 8.25% YTD (lol). CL moves 8% every week. I am happy day trading CL. No swing trading CL for me.
