no ZN trades today. I was short biased, there was huge volume 2 ticks above where I wanted in and price never made it below that edge....there was a signal to go long, but with the bearish sentiment I had along with the bearish filter tools I use, I was not excited about the longs. I did put a limit order to go long after the signal bar had closed up but it never filled and I'm glad it didn't. While there would have been no heat on the trade at all, it was definitely against the current bearish sentiment I was observing. So it might have worked and currently it still is but its not going anywhere and for now, I am flat and just observing.

If I get the short signal I was looking for, I'll take that....otherwise, no go....

I filled my daily quota in CL or at least what I was hoping for today so done with that instrument for today.

why were you short biased?

My feeling about the larger time frame at resistance, broken structure to the down side on my trading chart and the filtering tool I use that says if below, then generally bearish.

The long eventually failed today and so did the short I was waiting for. Overall ZN did not follow through on any of the trade set ups like it has been over the last several weeks.

I did take the short which was a loser. My first net losing day on ZN since u began trading it three weeks ago.

would love to see what you look at (seriously)
market is going sideways w/ an upward bias
market opened up in balance
never took out yesterday's VaL
never traded below the pivot
not perfect, but still a classic range day
if you traded the edges there was very little risk and more than a few good moves
like the es its intraday pattern was very similar to the previous day's

Are you using the 8:20 ET pit open as "open" here? And measuring yesterday's VA using the 8:20 - 15:00 pit hours only?

ZN thought.

Don't be caught lulling at your desk do to the upcoming holiday. Today seemed to be the precipice of volatility grinding out over the last few days. Quite a lot of fuel for the fire tomorrow.

Dramatically reduced posting schedule

I am completely out of stuff to say, I am trading less and less each day as I learn to hit my entries and let my trades do their thing....and I am a full time dad as well as having just taken on a time intensive project....add to that a full time school schedule in the fall and I'm pretty much done with anything other than my newly expanded to do list.

Therefore my postings will come fewer and farther between.....for the foreseeable future....

I still read some threads by email and will occasionally pop in to make a comment or post something I find interesting or important. But for now, my daily posts are over....

On a side note, I've added forex to my trading portfolio, I find I like it and I can manage risk really well and stay in the trade for hopefully days and weeks at a time. I am in my first EURUSD trade and so far its been 5 days and I like it. Just doing small size for now while I learn how things go.....should be fun.

Cheers.

PandaWarrior,

Anyone who is on this journey is genuinely and deeply delighted to see people progress. Your story, documented as it is, has all the twists and turns of a cold war thriller and all of the lessons of a classic fable. It seems yet again that less is more.

However ... however. Yours has been such a journey and in particular the past few months where you went from a shortness of breath , literally and in your trading, to being able to sing that I think that you have something more inside you that can help the whole community.

What I'm getting at is could you please think of doing a follow up to your webinar "10 things ...." ... it seems that your discussions with the @Gary the CL Assassin and @tigertrader himself (or is it herself ??) have stopped you choking those trades. I'm pretty sure they agree it needs to be wrapped up.

Let me help you out with the title ...

"10 more things that I wished .... etc"

I think it is pretty catchy ... no?? I also think that if you do it it will stop you from trying to write a book .. which by all accounts gives a very poor return on investment !

best regards from your

p
