The most vulnerable part of the trade is the beginning because the market hasn't shown whether or not you're holding onto a loser, a winner or a great winner. For this reason, you give the market your ante for playing, not the size you can scale into, which is held in reserve (piecemeal) until more information is shown in your favor.

Thanks for this gem. Best thing I've read all day
Great journal btw. Keep up the good work...

Books

I'm an old trader always looking to expand my horizons. The other day you mentioned Alexander Elder. I haven't read any of his books. Which one would you recommend reading first? Thanks for the thread, keep up the good work

Nothing mind blowing, but "Trading for a Living" is a good book.

Trading style

Steve, can we infer from your comment that you are basically a breakout trader as opposed to a range trader?

Reviewing some of the missed action in the markets for this past week.

Here's an example of how I look at momentum displayed right on the price action and how it might give us clues/hints to future action.

Monitor the depth of pullbacks against the trend, and the depth of new legs in the direction of the trend. They don't give information by themselves, but when you compare one pullback vs the last pullback... THAT is information as to what the momentum is doing.
