TF


mfbreakout View Post
Reshort TF 1109 area.

Out flat 1105 area. No longs for me in front of weak internals. Will short again if it bounces higher in front of weak internals except if FLUSH down comes down to the downside and then complete reversal of flush down. Then longs.

day dreaming

As usual lot of traders were day dreaming all day. Will TF, NQ etc go down during Globex session or bounce- I have no idea. I ONLY trade when every trader is on the playing field during NY open. As i have said in the past, if one can forecast as to how attached chart will look like tomorrow, i can guaantee 100% return. For index , i have 3 set ups.

1) If majority of the sectors are all GREEN, i am ONLY interested in longs.

2) If majority of the sectors are all RED, i am ONLY interested in shorts.

3) If sectors are a mixed bag- some green, some red, some neutral- it's a rotational day and good for 4-6 points.

I learned everything from dave the trader. In this 3 minutes video dave covers everything related to trading. I can not get enough of this video. I have nominated him for Trading hall of fame.

Since you've posted this a bunch of times, I just want to make sure you know it's fake.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Thanks Mike. I am aware that it is fake. But the message in it is REAL. Dave the trader just made a video to bring some key points home.
