I have been trading NG for a year now and i can tell now that it trades very similar to NG.

The 15 minute was a Great set up with Spike Down Candle , and the MACD Signal....i have not been able to keep eyes on all the Charts....Great Trade.

Post a chart when you get a chance. I do not look at MACD etc. It will be interesting to see how you look at 15 minutes spike and MACD combo. My trade was just based off bullish trend pullback long.

Trading


" I will keep shorting as price bounces to 78 area without give me a flush down first and cover some of the shorts as price pulls back to 77.30 area while keeping some shorts on. If buyers come in, i will get long even if CL is at 78. Most probably till 1.30 pm CL will be in a box."

All shorts today except one small long.

Short 78.16 Out 77.50 into close. Price is back upto 77.97 but i did not take long as long set up never showed up for me.

As usual i tried to act cute. After getting out from long shorted NG. Luckliy realized it's not the right thing to do and got out with little damage.

Trading

How to reduce pressure while trading? One of the ways i am trying to reduce pressure is not to worry about every twist and turn. My main job is to identify trend and then trade with it. Beauty of trading with the trend is that one does not have to live and die by so called " Perfect Entries and No Heat". I do not like to take heat on my trades but there is no way around it.
