Despite what some say, trading doesn't need to be complex and difficult......

PS: For those that follow me, I was able to get around some issues TOS has with certain alerts on range charts and able to print a (multi-parameter) vertical buy/short line with a background change; (I'll post it in Skype). This makes it easier for my wife, and I, to watch 24 stocks and get a heads up that an entry point maybe close on their weekly options. Comes in handy as I am fairly busy trading the CL, ES, TF futures.

Tip of the Day:

Remember we must be very very very careful of those bid/ask spreads on weekly options. Best thing to do is to worry about that spread, as it is a great excuse not to get into a trade. Later we can shake our head as we watch those weekly options double, triple, or more. But next time I will get in, I promise. LOL!!

Have a great weekend.

Friday was once again fantastic. For those in my group, thank you all the great comments and I am glad you like my little buy/sell indicator...... (with the indicator you could easily trade 20 weeklies from a laptop, just double click on the stock when you get a color change, check it out, if good buy, but be VERY careful of that spread as we all know it is a great excuse NOT to get into a trade )...

Have a great weekend.....................
