i don't, but

I no longer take a CME feed, but do occasionally glance at these for relative purpose....



Taken a look over the ledge?



Dow is relatively trendless over the same period while, strangely in Europe, Fesx is stronger than Dax. All in all a bit of a puzzle for both sides, unless we accept Naz and Dax as the usual leaders in which case hairier changes might be coming after all.

While Ndx remains in that channel I'm still not sure, but at least the cold's gone.

chop-suey day-glow

Choppy Dax had me for -20T for an unwelcome start to the morning, but fought for a +54T to put it straight in the middle of the session, a decent day after the recent cold spell.

Sad that I still can't sit on them, happier that I am seeing my edges clearer again.

Happiest of all that I can now use my Acer hardware BIOS power management to wake up my deaf Compaq over the lan, so they can both rest when Eurex does. Geek fun.

a final fiveday


Chucked yesterday's gains away on silly Friday Dax hops and jumps to make for a tosh week.

Really, really, really should know better at my age by now. I need to develop a much more professional approach to determining when to even consider an entry, let alone squeezing the trigger. I have so many clear and present setups and yet find it astonishing how easily I do the opposite to what I am thinking, what is that all about?, I mean, seriously - still?

I have spent the afternoon pondering and I fear the circle will just continue it's fruitless path unless I make some major changes. I will work through a more formal set of methods next month and see how it goes, I'll only start a new journal if I think it will mean anything.

It's end-of-the-month, week and day and Five-A-Day has had it's day, it is not yet fit for purpose and I humbly request @Big Mike to close this thread.
