Tough to be a buyer today Gary, but I also am long ES down here. After such a sharp overnight plummet, the market has mostly rebalanced, and is not doing a very good job moving away from the balance to the downside (though I must admit, a better job moving down than it has moving up so far!) It seems that it may want to try to get back up into balance above. We will see I suppose. Good luck with your long here buddy.

Oh shoot, what an screw up. I just accidently hit close whileI was talking to someone... While I am up, not I have to re-enter...

By habit I hover my cursor over the close bar as a panic stop for myself, and I guess the trigger is a little loose.


The problem now is more about rules. I was in a 104.67 with a stop at 104.50. No matter what happended, I was up for the day. Now, price is around 104.91, so the same stop puts me at a far great risk. I need a new "trade trigger" to follow my rulkes. I am not allowed to just jump back in.

When it is tough is when is may be the best.

I don't trade ES for a reason. Crude has a lot up upwards pressure right now which gives it somewhat of a safety net.

I mentioned earlier I may need to wait until tomorrow, and it is not over yet. I might not get back in. If I were in I at .67 would hold though.

World powers to resume talks with Iran


BOSTON (MarketWatch) -- Six of the world's most powerful nations have agreed to jointly resume talks with Iran over that nation's controversial nuclear development program, according to a European Union statement on Tuesday. EU foreign affairs adviser Catherine Ashton said that she has accepted Tehran's invitation to resume negotiations, and plans to represent the interests of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, China, and the Russian Federation at the summit. "We hope that Iran will now enter into a sustained process of constructive dialogue which will deliver real progress in resolving the international community's long-standing concerns on its nuclear program," Ashton said in a statement. The time and location of the talks have yet to be determined.
