Those last two look so lonely now, and that position seems so small. Funny how the mind shifts with relativity.

I think the key is to do it while lying down

That might work. My first year, desperate to understand short selling, I mounted a monitor on it's side so the motion was left to right, not up to down.



Today's trade had NOTHING to do with indicators. It had to do with previous motion, chart pattern, support szone, psychology, and day of week, no news reports...


AND, the boatload of shorts in the market...
