Trading

and my lady is doing what she does on most days. Small long 94.08. Needs to clear 94.50 area with FORCE for some more up side move. Will be taking off ahead of 94.50 area.

Nice trade, you read my thoughts.

So far day is going well, 3 trades for me so far, 1 BE, 1 -16ticks and the last trade +40ticks.

" Needs to clear 94.50 area with FORCE for some more up side move. Will be taking off ahead of 94.50 area"

Short. Just trading the box and done mostly for the day.

NQ

ONLY shorts in NQ. Never got good enough of a pullback to try long.

1) Short 4059 right after DOE announcement. Cover some 4051. Held some. NQ bounced from 4044 area. Held on to shorts. Added to short 4072 area. Cover 4064 flat.

2) reshort 4080 area. Cover 4064 area.


Reasons for Shorts: New highs in US $.

Since financials were green across the board plus market internals were +ve, we had 2 sided market. Trading FOMC day is not for most traders because risk is tough to define.

Trading

short CL 94.50 area and holding some shorts into Globex. Strong $ is not good for commodities and rate sensitive assets.

NQ

4044 to 4081 (37 points) $ up. That's the depth of analysis. Short. Where would be stop loss? Far enough to avoid noise.

Thanks cacfuture. People generally do not click on links, so posting video. It's too good to be ignored.

Trading

Opportunities come for the prepared ones. Yesterday was a massive day for the ones prepared. Days like yesterday can make a trader month, quarter etc. One just has to get in with the trend instead of looking at jumping prices.
Reflect upon what were you doing yesterday during FOMC minutes.

For lovers of country music. I paint a pretty funny picture dancing to a country song but i like all kinds of music.

I will post articles, thoughts, notes, charts, pictures from other traders, coaches whom i respect and have myself
tested whatever idea, trading set up etc. i learned from these wonderful members of trading community.

I will encourage other members of futures.io (formerly BMT) community to post they feel like worth sharing.


I chuckle every time I see this thread come up on the most recently quoted threads, on the home page of futures.io (formerly BMT), solely because Common Sense, isn't so common, and not everyone has "sense"

now that's my two cents on the subject, and you might want to ask for change back....
