I noticed you trade before the stock market opens, have you ever analyzed your trades in premarket versus during market hours? Being more or less profitable during certain times of the day?

This is only since monday (since I switched to NT)

Poll


Ok, I'm done for the day. Would you guys like a video for:

A) Normal trade recap?
B) How I analyze and define the trend?
C) How I manage a trade once I'm in it?
D) Stats video?
E) How I pick my entries?

FYI... I think B is the most important, followed by C, and then least important is E... but whatever you guys want.

The one that gets the most votes wins. A, B, C, D, or E ?

Well then, vote for what you would like to have me do a teaching video on.

But my overall "method" is:

1) Define market structure with support/resistance.

2) Define what's going on... uptrend, downtrend, rangebound within the overall market structure

2) Trade tests of levels, pullbacks within trends, etc, etc = discretionary price action setups that make sense, given the market structure and trend.

That's it. Sometimes I put keltner bands on the charts to get a feel for how price flows within it. I use multiple timeframes (short, med, and long) to get a good picture of 1 and 2 listed above.

Indextrader7..... my vote is B, then E, then C

that is: How you analyze and define the trend, how you pick your entries, and how you manage the trade (i see you are using targets in ninja).

thanks
