Trading


Trade #1. Got stopped out 76.50 area and long on Flush down. Out 76.98 area. Gave 10 minutes to see if 77.50 area gets tested but no go. Nothing magical about 77.50, i am just using low of 75.84 and adding some ticks to it to expand the range. Higher bounce makes it easier to short. CL back to 130 ticks rotation range

Trading

I was talking with someone who asked me how can he transfer his results from SIM trading into LIVE trading? he told me he is quite relaxed during SIM trading. The reason he is relaxed because he is using

1) Wide stop loss to stay from noise.
2) he does not mind position going against him as long he is trading with the trend.

I asked why he can not do the same during LIVE trading? His answer " He can not afford wide stop loss". I told him to either quit trading or practice in SIM ONLY what he can replicate during LIVE trading. there is no point oing one thing in SIM and something else during LIVE trading. The problem is he is not relaxed even in SIM mode with Mikey Mouse trades. I think he is close to getting it.

Trading

NG short not looking good. One can not be just focused on one trade. Waiting for a flush up to add to short. So called pain has a tendency to clear my mind more than gains.

Holding shorts into Globex session.

1) TF short 1168 area.

2) CL short 79.95 area. Will add to short into bounces.

3) NG short 3.30 area

4) Aussie $ from .8713 area.

5) OJ (Orange juice) from 134.50 area.

6) Short PL from 1259 area since last week.

Was short in GC from 1129 area but no go. Basically Scratch.


#1, #2, #4 ( added to short) , #5 neither here or there and #6 working. If a trader has aspirations to trade/manage a portfolio of positions, one can not MESS around.

OJ

I Believe #5 is Ready to Drop out....the Only Factor to be aware of is if we get a Cold snap down here in Florida.
That will cause a Scare and OJ could Rally to the upside on Freeze concerns.
But Technically on the Daily if we Break below 132.50 level...it should head toward 115.
I just keep the Freeze Concern in mind.,,,,you Never know about this time of the year on that Concern.
