p.s. no more posts until you've sat on a couple ....you know it makes sense

Just closed a Dow short for +59 points, had to go get dinner to force myself away from the screens.

p.s. if ES 26 goes I've probably left 200 on the table...., but I now know it really doesn't matter. Beer beckons.

Nice one !

Thanks, appreciate the support, first time in aeons I've stuck by my own analysis, still not long enough but I am content and, more importantly, comfortable with who I am, what I do and how I do it. Fear still prevented me from posting the trade while open though, incredible bareness of soul that trading exacts, guess I'm not alone there though.

Also got a bit over-excited talking future action, fortunately exercised a woman's perogative to not specify time, date or direction.

Cheers! (Theakston's Old Peculier for an old peculiar tonight )

Yesterday just one dumb experimental trade for a full -10 slap. Then quickly realised Fed type chop in Europe so went out to play. Might be similar today but hopefully not the first bit.

Am long 8220 stop 8200, possible EW 1-2, i-ii up from lod, else if it's just 5dn from hod then I get dumped out quickly.



Edit: Thinking ES mid-range makes this a bit of a no-man's land dumb trade

Edit2: Stiffed for -20

Hmmm, got that bit right. Tomorrow's another day, ho, hum.

Lesson 1 - why ignore 90% of evidence on my screens and focus only on the 'hope' bit, have to let the market come to me, it sure isn't going to happen the other way around.

Lesson 2 - today already felt like a 'deathwish trades' type day - why ignore that feeling and press on.

Lesson 3 - success is a trader's greatest enemy, having read one chart correctly we think we can read them all.

Lesson 4 - stop trying to read all the posts, watch webinars and deal with external stuff in job time.

Ok, bullish 5up, abc2 dn and watch out above if 8285 gets taken out, OR bearish 5dn and expanded flat abc up, watch out below if 8190 goes. For now am short 8235 stop 8245 but this might just be one of those no-go best in the garden days. Thinking either ES beaks out topside in extensions and the bulls put themselves in a long tight squeeze to defend through Benspeak or it wants 32-33 first, lower if 29 goes.



Edit: Stop now b/e, if they fetch it we're probably going much higher and scenario 1 likely true instead. Short for now.

Closed for +44 points to repair earlier day donkey account damage, it can go much lower from here, but on a Fed day anything's possible so that'll do into 1600GMT.
