Trading

After a flush down- traders trading with the trend can ONLY hope for one thing- a BOUNCE to reshort. Anyone coming up levels of so called support against a trend till it is backed by PRICE ACTION , does not know a thing about trading. I learned my lesson couple of years ago when CL was trading similarly.

NOTE: Covered some around 80.48 and added back to shorts as CL bounced from 80.37 to 80.98 area.

Trading


It does not matter which instruement is one trading- concepts and context are the same. Finally shorts in PL are working..

Trading

ONLY shorts in TF and holding for 2 hours. Same mistake again. Should have been trading NQ instead of TF. More bang for buck with NQ since last Thursday.

Trading

If there is a day where stop loss needs to be wide and one has to be patient- it's today. When P&L is jumping up and down to the tune of 50 ticks and one has to HOLD and ignore Jumping jack- it takes CONVICTION to do that. Only way i know to ignore NOISE is to trade with the trend.

Trading

I have not taken any longs in CL and TF since 9 am eastern time. ONLY shorts. Obviously there were some long trades but not for me. Another thing i controlled is to add to my position during lunch hour ( 12 to 1 pm). I just held my shorts till i got paid and still holding in CL and TF. Added to TF shorts around 1051 after lunch.

Trading

No longs in TF. Gave up all the gains from ealier short as i kept shorting when TF moved from 1045 to 1075. How? Not a pretty day but got the job done.

Trading

Same thing with Crude. No longs . All shorts. Luckliy no significant intra day drawdowns. I probably had best 4 days of CL trading in 4 years. Prior to making chnages in my trading days like last 4 days i will just be a SPECTATOR. Too afraid to do anything or if i took a trade , it was just successful due to random nature of my trade. I did not think my successful trades were random at the time. If i got 30 ticks within a 400 ticks opportunity, i was happy. Now, i see it was just nonsense.

CL is still moving to me. Cover some. Looking into 3 options 1) Go flat and reshort on break of 80. 2) Go flat. Go long for a bounce from 80. 3) Reshort into bounce off 80. I really like #3.
