I am surprised they could not sweep 82.80

But that has kept me long only, fade entries all day

Up is down, down is up.. "Wonderland".






Buy black, sell white. But not if it turns white again. Perfect logic.

Euro 125 is going to be tough to break.. that may have caused the stall.

ES is really messing with my plans for the day... 10 ticks, but can't find the correct symmetry.

I may walk at +90. 6E is on the ceiling, ES is scared. Maybe the afternoon. I was in the correct trades to have made goal, a few ticks would have made the difference. Maybe if I learned to count.

I quit. No more trades since +90. ES is not feeling like getting up right now, and I could be doing something else.

Another day shy of goal, but I support my decision today. Had I caught the market before 8am I would have had a good day, as I was "buy ready" since last night. Timing. Sleeping. Working. They all interfere with my trading

@GaryD

Be done you little pimp; eh?

Better CL trading (methinks) on Tuesday.

Perhaps a tiny taste in last 45 minutes of pit session.

Don't you have a lunch date or a workout or a cleanse or a nice $200+ per hour consultation to 'bill out' during lunch while you are probably making us all look bad eating your organic stuff and also making Charlie Sheen (yea; he is back 'bangin' 7 gram ROCKS--oh well) look like a LOSER compared to your indefatigible energy????

How 'bout that run on sentence; and I am Sudbury Canada trading on my vacation day!

Camping in Algonquin Provincial Park for some canoeing and fishing a bit later today; no friggin' internet there--WINNING!!! (Sheen reference).

I'll take a 2.5 hour lunch now.

peace & blessings!
