new pivot at 1313.59 --subtraacted that from high left approx 2.75 points

removed that from the 1313.59 have a sim long entry sitting @ 1310.75

high risk trade -just for watching as i dont feel at this time it will even p/b that far -

seems shorts are nicely trapped now down below the 1308 level

since post 235 i have tried to let you see my thought process -as the day progresses -and how my thoughts and opinions of direction change with the info given -i hope some of this helps someone -

on the long term swing chart we are still long from the intraday 15/75 chart -i believe it was 1301.50 entry -we are currently sitting at 1316.25 - for about 15 points

also i hope you practice the pivot zones-you can test different time frames and ma's and see what works in your trading plan -

also someone changed the quote under my name of creekboy -from trades for fun --to trades for profit -

i wish to request it changed back as trades for profit is too much work -i would rather it be fun -

have a great weekend and we will see you next week at some point

good luck to all
