CL showing weakness right at the start of this week. What to do? No set up for me either for long or short yet.

Looking forward to trading Brazlian ETF today. Elections outcome on Sunday is not what market was looking for and everything in Brazial got hammered and will continue to get hammered till something changes. No longs just will be looking for shorts today and for rest of the week etc. unless something significant for bulls comes along.

I stayed up late almost to London Open ...baby sitting a Trade on CL, could not keep my eyes open or chat any longer
so i placed a Stop far enough above, or was trying to be technical with it, and Target,,,and went to bed for 3 hours.
just wanted to post the Trade...it was only 29 Ticks...as i placed the Target just before yesterdays Low...wanted to make sure it hit.
and as i am typing i have missed another Short..

Ignored RULE # 1 in NG and got reminded RULES OF THE GAME. Luckily, i knew i was ignoring RULE #1 so was cautious and thus no damage . This is how i test set ups and get confidence either by being proven wrong again and again or proven right again and again. This again and again excerise becomes uniquely yours and becomes a traders edge.

" German Ifo Business Confidence Drops for Sixth Month" plus run up of US indicies of last week- is there a high probability of some pullback? One has to try to find out.

" Which of the traders within you will have contol of your trading on Monday, Tuesday etc. "

I want this trader to be in CONTROL everyday for me.

1) Trade way below trading limit. Truly understand the impact of leverage for every set up.
2) Hold a trade till the context, evidence changes.
3) Do not imagine things- support here etc without evidence.
4) Do not be scared if trading within the trend that as an example Crude will reverse and take away all the gains. When CL, TF , NQ does reverse- it will be pretty obvious. It will not be hidden.
and many, many more wishes but these 4 ones are important.

No longs in CL. Covered short around 79.85. Looking for shorts or longs around 80 to ORL area on pullbacks.

What to trade today is SHORT exactly!

Until it comes back UP tomorrow... Have an idea of the general tendency someone: all are short for the next weeks here?
