1 trade today, +18. Was watching the market since about 7. Would have been nice to have more of a price range on that, but what can you do.

Reading... Finally I got my hands on a copy of this book after looking for it for years.

I first got a tip about this book from Vic's "Education of a Speculator". He praised it as the greatest book about speculation ever written. Wasn't kidding, fantastic content.
Crucial lessons on:
1. Contrarian thinking - copper (bet against) the public's bets at all times.
2. Swichitis - what beats you is not the market / track, it is your inconsistency.
3. The Law of Ever-Changing Cycles - what worked recently is likely to stop for a while... and vice versa.

Vic has some quotes from the book posted here.

Where were you able to get a copy? I've been looking for this book for awhile myself

Prior to the trade, I thought 44.40 on my chart was a good candidate for support (see the attachment). In any case, I do take profit on the trend extreme test. Scalping.

The book magically appeared on google as a pdf recently. We owe a thanks to some guy who had a copy and finally bothered to scan it.

Yup, you're welcome. I've been googling the book for years, to my amazement it popped up just this month.

Pullback or reversal... that is the question.
You can't tell with 100% confidence, but there are signs.
I was watching the market earlier. There was a 2-legged PB to EMA...
Things to consider:
- it came late in the move
- price dipped below significant support and then bounced above it
- first reversal bar at EMA was very weak
- second bar tested support and didn't like it
Lot of signs that what was forming was a higher low, a reversal, or a transition into range... not a PB.
