The trick that I started to use, since I often have (ahem) long posts, is to type up and proofread the entire post, without images, just leaving space for them, and then uploading them once I am happy about the text and am ready to post it all. This stopped it from happening for me.

Since Yellen speaks tonight, I donít expect major movements.
Today is likely going to be a low volume, low volatility range day.
Iím expecting price to be trading between 2099 on the downside and 2012 (R2) on the upside.
I will be looking for fades from the extremes.
This will also be my first day trading 2 contracts.

- Overnight made higher highs+lows and got above Fridayís range.
- After the opening, price made a higher low and then moved up towards the weekly R1. Itís chopping there for an hour how
- Not sure what price is going to do. TICK has a couple of +600 prints, but and no prints below -500. This might indicate that itís more likely for price to go up than down. TSI(VIX) is neutral and chopping insignificantly around the 0
- Price is making a now HOD with 3 ticks (wow, better buckle up ), a TICK divergence is showing up. Iím not taking this short since there are too many signficant price levels in the next 3 points down preventing a nice move down (weekly R1, Fridayís high, VWAP and R1)
- Price does move through the price levels though and is at VWAP. First -600 TICK print today. Tempting to take a long, but VWAP is too close to HOD. Not forcing any trades.
- Price retraces to overnight high and seems to find support, taking a long (trade 1)
- I realize that Yellen is speaking when I get stopped out. Stupid ET/CET/am/pm error, ofcourse Yellen does not speak at night
- The day is pretty much done. Price seems to be grinding towards R2 or perhaps ADR high. Iím done for today
Trade 1: -2.25 points
- Pullback to support level (overnight high)
- TSI(VIX) is getting stronger while price is getting weaker
- Long 1 contract, risk 3 points, profit target at HOD
- Stopped out
- Hindsight: If I knew Yellen was speaking, I would not have taken this trade (donít trade around news). Unnecessary loss

There's this other site which also provides an audio feed. It's free, hence it has a 5-mins delay on the news. However, for important news and events they usually pre-announce 10 minutes before (which in a delayed fashion equates to 5-minutes before).
I'm expecting that price will be testing new highs today, so Iíll be primarily looking for longs.
On the downside, price might test the 2106/07 level which is good because that is where I will enter to try my new 2 contract trading.
First trading session with Squawk
