Now somebody has to be the thimble...

Or "symbol" which was tried once before. Damn lisp.

Oh, come on @josh. Be the frog, Feel the frog.

Or, I'll be the frog ,and you can be the pirate? LOL!

I know, I am a nut.

If I had to decide, I'll be the nut, you be the pirate, and @greenr will be the frog. But who will be the thimble? Hopefully a thort theller.

Being the pirate sounds more appealing, but I'm not sure I want to be either! What are my responsibilities as frog or pirate in this little scenario??

I am SOOOOOOO glad you asked!

I was just going with the criticism of my new avatar. Played with it again today. Actually, I think I want to stay the pirate. Sail the high seas, life of adventure, it's all about the booty...

But, the frog is available for a small fee.

The frog, by the way, is a little guy who sits in my wife's office. I shot it on a black background and then dropped the background out to pure black. It is something she loves. She wants me to some day do a photo of her and the frog in the same pose. Goes with her yoga thing, which is I guess not just a thing after however many years.

How are you doing this week? Did you ride that ES beast? If it was like that all the time I would consider leaving CL. (shhhh, I hope it did not hear me. It is one moody little b... eautiful thing. Well hello, CL )

I have been knocked out of two great shorts two days in a row.

I "know" that is the place, and it is almost like someone else knows, who has about 1,000,000 times more influence on the market, and only takes it there in K period.

I called it on Sunday, and that should be respected as if I called "shotgun". Don't those other traders follow the rules?

Price broke the LSP 94.47 yesterday, made it all the way to 94.48...

It broke again today, which CL is known for finding every possible stop out there, but never could get outside the redish (black charts are cooler, I hate pink) resistance area. And still the overlapping action continues. I am remaining downside biased as of today's close.

The over all directional conviction the last 4 days has been up

We had a nice healthy up auction yesterday

The s&p has been smashing its all time highs

Trade with the order flow?


I can talk making the few stupid mistakes I made last week trying to buy and fade the lows into that sell off


But just saying

" I will follow my rules, I will take my stops, I will be disciplined and i will work with the market....NOT AGAINST IT! Professional mind control is the key"

We do sometimes make "stupid" mistakes, but not often. Most mistakes are instinctual mistakes, without which we would not be alive. My guess is that is where you were. But, the great thing about trading is that is old news.

I know, I see ES, and did think CL had set a major bottom not that long ago, but my take is still waiting for CL to prove it can get out.

I traded long and short today, and probably will tomorrow. But I am not taking my sights off that zone until it can escape.
