my day was with a short bias. Shorted too early 2210.75 added another at 12 but covered too fast. shorted again covered 1 handle profit. either i add too many contract too fast or get out of position too fast. than went long got out with a small loss and shorted again at 2203.75 (POC) the moment the sell imbalance was over a billion. Added 1 at 03.50 than added another 03.75, seeing vix go up and ticks increasing.
2 contracts now riding it overnight for 94 (if it get there)


Tell me about getting out too fast.

Nice bias though shame you didnt have any on from the morn.

What was your short bias based on?

Am long eth down here but small size as great support levels just below, will be surprised if it doesnt tag 92s at least.

short bias: NQ was struggling to get up, Russel started selling off, amzn, googl, fb all negative, Russel and nq became negative and es was going up. the major players that were up were gs and oil stocks (cant keep the market up unless others participate. and endof month, usually the fund managers run out of money and sell off happens around noon. The only reason i got worried because this is December usually bullish.
what was your basis of long bias?

Makes perfect sense. Far too much info for me to compute though intraday.

Purely technical long bias cos of uptrend: buying dips for last 10 days has worked every time, stong eth also, and oil ramping.

I still cannot believe i forgot gap fill whilst caught up in the moment....how stupid. Pleased though i got out on small retracement as was down trend day.

Hope the 92 level comes into play today. Prefer it when price has retraced back into price structure. Trading at ATHs is a mind tester.....do i go long for aths or fade double tops etc etc.
