Stagnation. The POC from the last 30 days matches the POC from the last 5 days... to the tick!

I've been long for real since Oct. 16. I've more than made up for recent loses.

This trade is from one of my systematic systems. It will hold until either the market strength is extremely strong, in which case it will go flat... or, more likely, will reverse to be short when the long is no longer valid. It's in the market more than it's out.

I've turned my attention back to programming trading systems. I'm also taking some discretionary swing trades and doing alright with them.

Sorry but I don't have it there right now.

Please, can you make it for NI7 or TOS? Please, it really look like some promising results for the ES. In my view, it makes sense that if the vix goes down, ES goes up because there is less perceived risk.

Stop trying to "solve" the market by testing out indicator combinations. Waste of time for everyone.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Lessons relearned

I stopped trading stocks years ago in favor of the ES. It was a good decision. One of the reasons I stopped was because of a lack of reliability in stock price prediction. The most troubling losses stemmed from poor executive management at the companies I was buying and sometimes outright fraud.

For some reason, after years of absence from stock trading, last night decided to dust off my old stock portfolio trading systems and try again with a small allocation.

Today my first long position was filled for Straight Path Communications ( STRP ). Just last week it was trading near $50 and I picked it up for a bargain at around $23 Ė 50% off the high!

Within minutes of my re-entry into the wonderful world of stock trading my 1st position plummeted. I lost almost 50% within a few hours. The position is 1/10 of the portfolio, so in portfolio terms itís only 5%. That loss can be made up for but I just canít stand the feeling that comes with getting burned like this.

The company is being accused of fraud:

Straight Path sinks 41.4% on new report alleging fraud - Straight Path Communications Inc. (NYSEMKT:STRP) | Seeking Alpha

If you trade stock itís only a matter of time that something like this will happen to you. There are all kinds of ways to lose money in markets, but this is the worst and is good reason to stay away from stock.

Same thing happened to me a few times. It helped me learn the lesson of portfolio diversification.

I still believe that when it comes to new traders, they should be trading equity ETF's like SPY, and swing trading them -- not day trading them -- and not trading futures with their increased leverage.

With SPY, what you described won't happen. This is true of most ETF's.

Now short from 2070. My autotrade system closed the long from 10/16 for a 52 point gain.
