Taking one shot at a long here on the premise that we'll see short covering at the end of the day. Maybe too early. We''ll see.

I guess I did well today. I from the time I started trading till now there's been about a 7 point range. I've captured 6 points with one contract. From what I can tell that's about as good as the best on this site.
Edit... make that a 10 point range. Oh well. I'll take Junior Varsity.

short here on heavy volume hitting the ask without the ask moving up. I hesitated to get short at that moment and market ticked down a few ticks so I did not get the better price.

long for a swing. market openned down. went up. came down. Stopped near d-vwap for lunch. time to go back up. That's my analysis. Don't like it? too bad. It's all about risk management.

Not as good today. Lost 6 points. The silver lining is that one of the losing trades... a big one point wise, was with 2 contracts whereas all the others where with one contract. On the 2 contract trade I was thinking about averaging down my price and holding all day but that's not what's been working for me lately. I was less than cool in my approach. The market's been scaring me.

Back in business after a break. Scalping and trading around high volume nodes in this choppy day. I've been looking at order flow more closely. I've also decided to use more lots ( 2 or 3 ) per trade and manage multiple targets. Using the order flow I'm trying to find support and resistance to attempt to trade with tighter stops.

I'm practicing trading the SPY today on sim. Just set up data feed from TS into NT. My plan is to trade SPY on a real account after I build some confidence with it. This way I can scale my position size better than I could otherwise with the ES. I'll need a larger account to trade the ES live. One or 2 contracts just isn't going to cut it ( except for scaping ).
This is just a little scap trade on teh SPY because that's all that's available now. I just set this up and wanted to try it out.

Yes... for day trading. I'm getting better at it. I'm not posting all my trades. Very few. It's too much of a distraction.

I've been working a new swing trading system. It's turning out better than I thought (except for recent extreme market moves). Tonight it's signaling to go short ES/MES. Will take it but only a minimal position to leave room to scale in. Will hold this position until we have a lot of selling over at least 2 days. The system will tell me to cover.


A shorter time period version of the system ( 240 min bars ) is also signaling to short the ES. I'm only taking the 2nd entry. If price closes beyond the next level the NinjaTrader automation will add to my short. This could happen while I sleep.

Was short at 2955.75 from last night covered at 2890. My 1440 min system says to stay long but I want out until after Apple and Amazon earnings after the bell today. I may re-short after.

long 2894.25 on AAPL and Amazon earnings expectations.
edit: closed at 2894.5 . Earnings did not move the market at all or news already was out and knocked spoo down before I entered. Either way I'm not going to try again with aapl. I'll wait till after they announce and maybe reshort to re-align with system.
