Nice thread, keep going.

In other cases, you can better understand the poster is just full of shit. Mike

If only I had a nickel for every time I've been tempted (but refrained) from posting that comment.

I don't lose very often...

but when I do you will see all the details here. I'm definetly not full of anything especially myself so I'm not afraid to be real. Of course the losers are where all the value is for me education wise so if I don't share those then I'm not being who I am or who I say I am....and Im not getting any better.

The BS'ers are looking to compensate for some weakness. I look to strengthen myself through studying my weaknesses. The BS'ers are looking to feel good by gaining a following. I'm looking to be better by being accountable and by learning from anyone that stops by and posts here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you!

@wldman, you have inspired me to start a new journal publicly. I don't typically read journals on the forum, but if I notice a new one from someone who I have seen positive and well spoken posts on other threads I will look them over and decide if they are worth my time to continue following. (Just my personal preference) I have almost always kept a private journal the last 3 yrs I have been trading. A friend and mentor who I highly respect and learned so much has suggested doing a public journal again, but wasn't sure if I wanted to do a blog or here on futures.io (formerly BMT). I was leaning towards futures.io (formerly BMT) because there is little to no feedback on a blog and I felt that I have learned from others here and that I owe it Mike and to give back from my perspective. Like you the journal is primarily for my benefit . I will more than likely start it after the Holiday weekend.

Have a great vacation, I have been to several states out west , but never to Colorado. I look forward to seeing more of your perspective of the markets when you return.

Cheers

Thank you itrade...

I understand where you are coming from. This process just thus far has been helpful for me. I hope your experience is the same. I look forward to reading.

Okay be aware that the EU Summit is today. The market will jump all over the place on comments especially on project bonds, bank capitalization, reduced growth forecasts, and fiscal Eurobonds. Mr. Hollande's first opus , if you will..lol.

We did not find agreement on those new lows early .2620-,2615 area, those could be retested. It appears that move was precipitated by talk of containing a contagion possible with a greek exit...hmmmn Also B of E on QE...oh boy.

I tend to think the power rests with the bears and that any peep confirming will potentially be violent. I will take the long side today but I'll be wrong really quick.

Trade well everyone. DB

you could draw in a trend line that looks to be in that same confluence and dont forget that bonk at the 200 period at the top of the hour.

Ok...

zero line sell was indicated but price did not come through the bands (yet). If this is a pull back re-entry long (which I will hate) I will not participate until I have evidence above the 200 period

I will be off...

the long side here. My view of likely market moving comments would be that the great propensity would be negative. Maybe too much thinking, but I'll show a longer time frame...now that my eggs are cold...lol

R/R outlook not brilliant here imo

60 min...


in my view 1) screams short and 2) says don't trade the 3 min rally that is noise and it will cut you.

Lets see how it plays out.

3 min does indicate long.
