In my pre-market video I gave 95 as a target for ES today and it hit it and even went a little lower. Next target is 78. You can see the video here if you missed it:

!

I had a terrible day trading crude today and I decided that I was going to put crude aside for now and focus 100% on the ES during US RTH. I can read ES really well but crude is a bit of a mystery.

Here's the ES trades. I really scored on that last one. I was establishing my short position and I kept scalping to improve my cost basis and then catch the nice move down into the close.



This is why I love ES. I can read it well, I can safely trade size, all my tools work well with it, and I rarely have a loser. I'm not bashing crude, crude is great. It just takes time to master it. I've put in 2 years on ES so best to stick with that. And if I can trade size on ES, do I really need to trade anything else?? So I'm just going to stick to what I know and see if I can increase my size to achieve my goals. My basic unit has increased from 1 to 2 contracts. If I scale in I can have several units. That last trade shows 7 but I only had 5 open at one time.

Sup CP, Welcome back to the ES-only brotherhood ....


In your Chart above , I see many "sois-disant" professional activity ( blue bars) .... in the trends ( actually more often than on tops)...... Unfortunately I cannot use this chart when I trade daily ( I am limited to IB workstation) so could you please tell how do you check that it is a counter trend stop activity instead of continuation activity ....coupling this with Pot or cycles ??? or Bid-ask ? Or even volume ?

Thanks

This morning I finished trading early so I had time to make a video reviewing my euro stoxx trades. I also made a video going over one of my ES trades from earlier in the week, I'll post that one this weekend. I think they will give you some more insight on those "sois-disant" professional bars.

Month to date results of the euro stoxx are quite impressive. 20 trades all winners for 1000 euros. I started out wihtout many trades but have become a bit more aggressive and increased my unit size from 1 to 2 which increased profits:



Dax results are very impressive, I've traded the dax only for 6 days yet made as much as I did on EuroStoxx for the month. Thanks to Jeff Castille for the idea I'm using to trade the Dax.

Well done CP,

What was the DAX setup Jeff shared with you?

I'll have the ES results later, that's where the money is.

For the dax thing, since it's Jeff's idea, I'll let him decide if he wants to create a topic for it or keep it private.

Yes I am in Italy.
I like the FESX opening, which is at 8, and I need an hour or so to get my brain working ;-)
When I'm live at the FESX opening, I usualy get a couple of good trades before 11 am.
Then I may trade the US opening at 15.30, looking for a couple more trades, or for a trend-setting one.

The FESX opens at 8 but the cash markets in germany open at 9am. There are usually good trades from 8-9am as FESX will test the nearby levels of the day before. Unfortunately I'm getting the kids ready for school. In September I should be able to start at 8:30.

I trade the first hour to hour & a half of europe and then I go for a run in the park, go out for lunch at a restaurant, and if I have extra time I work on some of my prototypes. Then I trade ES from about 14:30 to 18:00. I also trade ES from 20:30 until I get a winning trade and then I quit. I really like the last 90 minutes of ES. The levels are defined and I can always find a good trade.
