How does the market know what I’m thinking? I’m in a long up about 2 points. Looking to go 3 points more. I move my stop to protect some profit. The market retraces, goes up, retraces again and hits my stop and goes only one tick more! How does it know? It must be because I’m part of the herd. Moooo. Then the market prodeeded to the lofty point I had in mind. Anyway, I’m grateful for a profit today on a day where the market lured one to believe ten points were easily possible. Crafty fellow, that market! I am pleased that I was initially thinking short for trend today, then adjusted when market showed the way. I am often stubborn.
Sorry, sound on recording is weak. Will correct it for tomorrow. Good luck trading!

One trade today, a short on a short-term fib. Oops, MACDs not in agreement. (Against my trading rules.) Oops, no ATM had been set! No problem...I'll wait it out...and luck followed through. Got a 1.9 point run. Bounced at a low of yesterday, but I didn't pick up on that in time. Indies said today difficult day to trade...at least for me. Best of trading to you!
Am not nervous trading. I hope that shaking hand problem is behind me!
Yes, I watched the vid, but wondering where you would have stopped it. Usually when I see something like that as a mistake I close it without even thinking about it and then verify my accounts are all in order.
Saw significant down trend. Waited for pullback and shorted. Couldn't stomach shakeout even though mid charts said stay in. Need to work on that. Traded calmly and am thankful for that. Consistent profitability is my goal. Don't feel I need big gains, but they are nice.
