Just to clarify... Is this thread for trading the TF? For people/traders to post stuff in regards to the TF?

If I am wrong ...Please forgive me!!!
======================

Got stopped on that last trade - Now short 54.58
======================
Done for the day - Took a 2 tick stop out on that... - Hope you guys have great night!!!

I don't think indextrader views you or I as a trespasser ....there's nothing wrong with posting a trade idea once in a while. I don't come to this thread that often but I suspect you won't be blacklisted

Same thing happened in ES. In fact, within 10 seconds after the precise 4pm EST cash close, there were huge 'buys' placed on ES, meaning, very likely the next level of shorts getting stopped out. (I monitor the GOM ladder for ES). And, the total number of 16K+ buyers on the 4:05 close bar is the single biggest of the day on a 5-min ES 09-12 chart (second biggest buy/stop out run was 7.7K buyers) IMO, a suckers rally and stop sweep for the day - I'd not seen 'genuine' or real buying, only those forced.

Word is that stops are up to at least 1321 (which is the 50% of yesterday's decline)

From the first post in this thread:

Quoting 
I hope having this journal will help me continue to grow and keep improving. I look forward to sharing what I know, helping, and learning from you.

The key words are: "...will help me continue to grow..."

In what posting trade ideas or entry/exit can help him to grow? Maybe you are ready to start your own journal.

Aside from that...... substitute "badges" for "journals"

What is special about 57? I don't trade TF, but it looks like perhaps 760 might be appropriate.


Victory Trader View Post
...SUPPLY there at 57 which could hold the price action down there.

If it gets through there the 62 area would come into play!!!


Boomer34 View Post
56.9 is Pivot

The attached chart shows yesterday's area of consolidation in the afternoon, with the selling pressure really starting around 61. While 57 may be the pivot Boomer, and while some traders may pay attention to it, it's just another number, and 57 was mostly in "no man's land." Put another way, given the attached chart, if you were selling, where would you do so? Anything can happen, but where are serious sellers more likely to actually step in (whether they are closing longs, or initiating new shorts)? It could have gone higher (though not likely given time of day), or it could have reversed from 56, but we're talking about likely targets. As I said, I do not trade the Russell any more and I'm much better friends with the ES, but markets are markets, and often looking to the left yields the simplest and most appropriate answer.
