No trades today, felt rough and tired, had to work then went to local bike shop, did a deal and walked out with a flat bared CX bike for road training and mud plugging, rather than wear out the MTB! new toys


Will try to trade tomorrow!

Suppose I should have a quick skim through the charts, see how I'd of done in theory ( it's so damn hot and humid here in the UK, it's hard to be bothered to do anything )

DAX, mad move down, then 26 uptrend, which went on for a bit, then basically multiple long entrys with trend near the 26's envelopes, then 100 flattens off and chop between, then we break down again big, few areas might of cost me but over all, highly profitable.

FTSE pointless compared to DAX.

YM was okay, respected the range until big news then chart goes wrong, must of lost feed.

SPX well it's SUCKY, very very sucky, why anyone trades that ??


That'll do, made the effort and sleep with a fan blowing air over me atleast!

Hot, Tired, got other stuff to do, okay I start making the effort next week, weather should break over the weekend, which will big time HELP!!

Over 1/2 wage this week, slowly slowly, no point rushing it at this stage.

There's a nice shrinking stairs pattern on the Dax now....could be worth a long if we get a dip on the figure.

Should of been shorting in quite a few places, but it's too hot for me here and sweaty just haven't got the focus, hate trading Fridays, ruins your weekend if it all goes wrong.

See the attached chart, arrows mark the entry points ( entries won't be as nice live, why I run 2 trades for when 1 runs away a bit )



Sorting out new bike, so I can go for a long run after dark when it cools down. And watching Expendables 3 that's out on DVDrip already!

If your dealing with the same Spot numbers I've got, Nice take thy profit and run already



No biking till it's dark and cooler up and down the street fixing the brakes has killed me.

Notice you don't get many losers unless your trading STUPID, 1 up 1 down annoys me, consistency is key.


I'd be rich already, if I wasn't so easily distracted and basically lazy! LOL

And your still learning it
