NG came to edge of the boundaries- time to try long or if already long, add to longs.

Q) Why in front of strong internals and yesterday's price action i did not take longs in NQ, TF etc.

A) If ireally dig deep into my subconsious i will find many reasons but two main reasons are;

1) I had massive gains over last 2 weeks trading TF, CL, NG, PL etc. I was trying to curb my excitement because it felt like i could not do anything wrong.

2) I was mentally/physically exhausated around 9.30 am this morning. I decided to step back from screen for an hour or so. By the time i came back NQ, TF were at intra day highs and at that point i was ONLY left with short option for a reversion to the mean trade set up.

I do not trade E-mini. I trade NQ, TF. I am using E-mini as an example because most of my conversation was with a fellow trader who trades E-mini. He has more trading experience ( 20+ years) and knowledge. In the end he did OK but he is a prison to his own knowledge, experience and is not as flexible as i am. I do not hold positions overnight in indices, he does with 3% drop in E-mini as a stop loss from his entry etc. Stop loss plus cost of putting hedges to protect his gains brought him back to REALTY. If ES does not consolidates , hold and move up and October was end of the year- he will not be looking good.

He is experienced enough trader to be cautious now with things like Low for the year is IN and ES will finish year higher etc. He wants to see price behaviour over next week or so. In other words he is no mood to make forecasts till market consolidates, hold his levels etc.

Held 2 cars short from yesterday. Shorted NQ this morning. US traders just tend to focus on US markets with nonsense comments like that S&P is down only 5% over 10 days etc., no need to panic. We do not panic, we just trade. How about Germany, UK etc being down day after day 2%, 3% , 4%. World is a village- at least when it comes to trading. Pretty soon i will start trading DAX and FTSE.

NOTE: Will be looking at APPL earnings on October 20th to gauage market sentiment. It's just one factor and lot of money is in it. If safe heavens start getting liquidated - WATCH OUT.

i was thinking all the time that you are the person to surf on the perfect storm of dax, and now you say that , i am sitting here to watch the show!i think you love her

this thread is pure gold for me, thanks

GM,

Recently started listening to Eckhart Tolle's " Music to Quiet the Mind" and his audio book.

NG. Looking for a bounce from big balance area low's. Don't like gap down, so will cut down size.

Hunt weakest index after a massive bounce. Have all the problems from which TF got sold off 10% got corrected in just 1 day? I don't think so.

A typical rotational day. I wonder why on a rotational day like today there is more analysis of support, resistance etc when there is nothing really going on?
