Trading

Aussie $ which starts trading 6 pm eastern time can be a good trading instruement. I have ben testing it for some time now. When there are macro head winds then it makes sense to trade. Otherwise i do not find them suitable for my way of trading. It's been getting sold for 5 weeks now. Big gap down right at open.

Trading

Susie Wolf has been preparing for this all her life. If you feel pressure while trading as position goes against you for 10 minutes by so many ticks or whatever, think about pressure Susie has to endure with entire world watching.

Trading

My prayer for Monday morning trading session for Crude ?I will be jumping up and down with excitement if Crude moves from closing price of 80.70 on friday to 82.70 area price during Globex session. I will short it. It's easier to short bounces within a bearish trend. If CL price just lingers around $80 area by the time NY session opens- it will be disappointing. Why? becuase i will have to wait GOD knows how long for CL to go up higher to get smacked down.

It's not advisable to short a DULL market.


It's only a wish to define risk. I do not have " CL will do this or should do this" in my vocubulary. 100-150 ticks moves are quite predictable- any thing out side this band is just a GIFT and i have no idea when , where and why those moves come.

CL

CL ..Broke below ORL...Shorted below 80.70 for some Ticks, and FLAT as seems to be Staled...Watching
No time to post Chart.


Correction ...Continuation Down...

Charts showing a Nice Trade down...we Broke below ORL with Divergence set up, and headed Down until Divergence formed again.

I should have held on to the Trade until there were Signs/Evidence of a turn.
I am Not saying CL will not continue Down...just pointing out what i should have done.

Nice trade. Don't worry about posting charts/ trades in real time. Post once you have time. This is not a trade calling journal. All we trying to do is that if someone is trying to go long in an area and you took a short in that area, maybe it will help someone to see why long did or did not made sense there.

6A


6A...Example of OR levels....and Trades that could have been taken.
@mfbreakout....Shorted below ORL in Asian Session for Big Cash.......Great Trade.
Price returned to ORL for a Divergence set up for re-entry Short.

Hope you do not mind....thought this would be Relevant to your Method...although i did miss the Trade...i am trying to follow and document, as i intend to add this Strategy to my Trading.
I do have to learn to hold Longer on most of my Trades...which is what you mention to try and do.
