Part 2 + .8 TF Sept 20 2012

I heard my audible alert and came to the system to find a shorting opportunity.

The result was an 8 tick gain.

+ 5.1 TF Sept 23 2012

Keep things in perspective, I tell myself. Drove my son to the airport this morning. Told myself the one-on-one time is to be cherished. No need to trade every day. Came home and opened the system. Voila, a short opportunity. I felt daring but placed the trade.

Learning a lot from futures.io (formerly BMT) and the members.

+ 3.4 TF Sept 26 2012

Took short based on MACDBBLine 987 tick chart cross from above. Felt too late and retrace took one of my stops out. Nice ride down though on the second car.

Good job, Orin. I kept trying to take longs on the retracements......all the way down


I noticed Horst did the same thing and then salvaged it! Oh well, tomorrow I guess.

Please try using the 610 tick MACDBBLine chart to help you stay in. Yesterday I would have had another 1.5 points if I had watched the 610.

- 4.0 TF Sept 28 2012

Had virus illness yesterday and did not trade. Felt good enough to trade (SIM) today, and jumped right in. That is likely not a good idea after illness. Better to ease right in.

First trade was just ahead of news. See? Not good to "jump in." Learned from Silvester17 that Chicago PMI is available a few minutes before official release time...thanks S. But still, I shouldn't trade before news. I know that.

Second trade was a "catch up chase the market gain back your stop outs trade."

Third trade was good. Bought at trend line. It seems like trend lines are coming to rule the roost lately.

Did you notice that on H's video of yesterday the 27th that he moved his stop on the first trade...increased it when the trade went against him?
