Panda isn't that first trade before the open? Like 7:50 it looks like? Just wondering, if you trade before the open.

Heat exhaustion ...not pleasant but if you know what to look for, you deal with it ASAP.

Heat stroke...thats real bad.

My son was playing roller hockey on a real hot day when he was 9 years old in an enclosed arena, with no air. Well, there were only 5 skaters, and it was hot on that cement. Coach tell him to get back on the rink only 1 spare (4 skaters a side). I see my son shaking his head not. Coach is pointing at him and talking...I can see it from across the rink. So i go down there to chesck it out.

Well, my son is a little disoriented, he is flushed, but hes dry...not sweating... early signs of heat stroke!

Man I freaked a little. Took him out side into the shade, stripped him down to his underwear, got some water in him and on him, under his arms back of his neck, soaked his hair.

Took about 25 minutes, but he started to come around. I wasnt sure how close he was to passing out, but it seemed pretty close.

Just fortunate I went down there when i did, and I knew what to do. ( I have advanced first aid training)

Last time he ever played summer roller hockey. Coach didnt have a clue.

Was working in a neighbor's backyard doing some chores for them.....I have no idea how long I was passed out....just remember things going black and waking some some time later laying on the ground in full sun....Mid August, massive headache, no sweat on me at all, muscles severely contracted and stiff.....literally crawled on my belly to some shade under a tree and found a water hose there. Luckily it was close to the handle and I managed to get it on. Took a long time but finally got to where I could stand up and walk home. Don't remember much aboutt that afternoon....just the headache and the blackness that settled in right before I passed out.

PB,

First, have fun out there with your daughter and good weekend too.

After you come back answer to this question when you can.

I think lots of guys, including me of course, will have really hard time waiting for your 2nd signal.
My case, I'd tried long and in & out at least a couple times losing some or BE at best during the 2 hour period from 8-10 (your chart).
To the point,,,what made you wait till 10. You must have something to look forward to,,,,to wait that long I guess.
Just trying to go inside your mind...
Thanks.

Well, there was a signal earlier but I didnt take it, then I noticed the stop had not been violated even with all the back and forth going on. So I drew in the levels and waited. Right before the break happened, I noticed the price ladder was speeding up a bit. Both up and down. Truthfully I had an order to go short as I figured there was more room to the downside, but once the price started working up, I knew better than to fight the trend. So I place my order a few ticks above the level so a random HH would not fake me out and then stepped away for awhile.

Ooookay.

I thought you waited till the small bar at the 2nd arrow and placed stop just above the bar.
Also I think I found out what I'm doing wrong at the same time.
I guess I'm trying to be too exact.

Thank you for taking time to answer.

Ok on your third trade their how did you pick out that one. It didn't break out, nor was it an inside bar. And I pointed out other bars on the picture, why not these bars? How did you pick the bar you did? Thanks

Thanks!

Just a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate what you're doing here.

I've seen you around the forum for a long time, but as I'm very careful about what I read (and am influenced by) I see I've been missing out on the great stuff here.

As is often the case, I've stumbled across what you're doing here lately while I'm at the same time coming to similar conclusions: I've seen the benefits of multiple time frames, and I'm experiencing the power of trends (see my new journal for a chart or two).

Additionally, your Gratitude Project, whether you're consistent with it or not, is, I believe, extraordinarily beneficial – in every way. I was influenced, by watching The Secret and listening to the audio book The Power (both Rhonda Byrne productions – many scoff at these things but I don't care), to develop the habit of giving thanks and being grateful for anything I can think of as soon as I wake up in the morning. It has changed the way I start my day and improved my overall attitude, which is, as you have already alluded to, more important than any trading method/system.

I saw some of the Mark Douglas text in the thread here. One of my favorite passages is one of his regarding attitude:


Quoting 
It's a fundamental shift in attitude that accounts for their success, not some brilliant realization about the market, as most people erroneously assume.

This erroneous assumption is prevalent among traders simply because very few of them really understand, at the deepest levels, just how critical a component attitude is in determining one's success.

- Mark Douglas

Anyway, thanks for what you're doing here! Have a great weekend.

"Is it hard? Not if you have the right attitude. It's having the right attitude that's hard." - Robert Pirsig

I'm glad you are finding it useful. Its always nice when some one takes time out of their day to compliment you on something you've done. By the way, nice blog you have going. I started one on blogspot and was simply to lazy to do that one and this one.
