I do not trade Nikkie but the set up was too good to pass. Short during Asain session last night. Cover some and added to short into bounce and holding some.

1st test breakout failure short.

CC has convinced me to ONLY swing trade SOFT commodities like KC, SB , ZS etc. CL, NG, HG etc will still be day trades mostly.

Someone asked me what was the set up/reason for long CC?

A) Opportunity only comes when there is perception of change. Ivory Coast is biggest producer of CC and following headline says it all.

" Cocoa Reaches 3-Yr High on Concerns That Ebola May Spread".

1) Flush down CL long 91.15 area. Out 91.70 area.

2) Flush Up CL short 91.77. Was looking for 91 area but no go. Cover some 91.54 and scratch rest.

3) Short TF on failed A up. Cover 1120 area. Short again 1123 in front of mixed internals. After 2 days of blood bath in TF, it's just rotating.

Q) How come i show number of contracts traded for some trades and not for others?

A) Any time i have more than 20 contracts in CL, NG, GC etc. I do not share. I do not want the everyone to know where i am adding size. More importantly it's beyond scope of this journal. I do not mind sharing relatively small position size trades to show that having ability of a trader to trade size is not THE EDGE. Whether one is trading 2 cars or 50 cars- set up is same. Execution is different.
