Lessons for Friday 3/23/12

Time in Trade: I noticed a few trades that became profitable right away. Conversely, other trades were either profitable then stalled and came back to my entry (ES short 10:01) or never took off from my entry (QM 10:31). Perhaps if the trade does not work rather quickly then it's indicative of poor trade location and should be exited early, before the stop or target it hit.

it appears for the very first time, you stumbled upon the very fact that if and when you have an indicator or indicators that correctly, more often than not, could ride on the ridge of price action, north or south, as it revealed itself to you when you stated that--I noticed a few trades that became profitable right away....; then if you could tweak that indic to include sort of empirical price action sample....

that same indic would serve you and enrich you more than you can imagine.... is my one man opinion.

good luck and have fun. and wishing you the best.

No Trading Monday 3/26/12 due to work schedule.

I wasn't able to trade Monday, my work schedule has been pretty busy. I'm hoping it sill become a little more consistent so I can trade.

Lessons for Tuesday 3/27/12

Trade Location: I entered GC long, ES long, ZB short and QM short on a retracement to the value area extreme. All were stopped out except QM. GC and ES VAL declined after I entered it, ZB VAH increased after I entered. QM VAH stayed the same and had been declining throughout the day.

You want the value area extreme to hold, it shouldn't move against you after your entry. You are looking for good trade location, if the location starts as an extreme and then turns into fair price, you no longer have good trade location and should enter the trade. Had I done that I could have exited GC, ES and ZB early for a smaller 1pt loss.
