ES support Level


SPX 1980 is kind of clear support but is 2012 a CLVN support?

Not a good day, I did lot of trades tried to improve average on my ES longs, Into the just close just before plunge I hedged my 2 ES Longs with Dec ES Short...

My average for ES Long is 2003 and My ESZ5 entry was at 1975...I need prayers but that's not the best way to trade, I know...

My average for ES Long is 2003 (down from 2044 but swallowed losses) and My ESZ5 short entry (Overnight hedge) is at 1975...I need prayers but that's not the best way to trade, I know...

I still have my oil long i.e QM but closed DUST and VXX (Short - opened to day) for $280 profit...I was scalping longs and short on ES for few handles that's I got my average down...Hindsight, Once break of that range at 2044 and 2036, I should have forgot trading ES or should have got out when damage was less but last 4 or 5 years dip buying always won big time and changed my mind drastically...

Edit: Scalping gave me 13 handles (but too much of stress), Dust $240, VXX $48 and yesterday's ESZ5 short gave 2032 - 1997 = 35 handles...this is freaking nuts what happened to my following trend from now on...

Why do you hedge? If it's wrong just shut it down. Hedging with a contract further out only means you're paying two sets of brokerages and now you got 2 headaches instead of 1. You only have a clear mind to be objective if you are flat, by adding another one you are just making it worse for yourself.

Learn to love the loss, it's just paying for the chance to test your hypothesis about the market - an expense.
