Buying 2 nasdaq micros 11,200

Buying 2 mes micro sp500 @ 3682

Looking to sell my long 10 yr to cover and take profits up petty good

Selling 10 yr at 116.12

That's 1,060 profit

Took profits on options 4 days ago around 1000

Took profits on my 3 June micro nq

But still way down overall on this trade.

I consider this entire set of options futures and tqqq to be part of my k ok ng swing trade
Which was started very early into the massive sell off. I'm not doing all that badly yes down about
15k on paper nothing realized except profits so far. Won't take much of a rally or retrace
To get me back above break even and into nice profits. I am averaging down and into this trade management of this trade is what will allow it to profit and luck of course. Still on the road.

I'm still bullish this mkt down here as I have been. I like buying into dips even if it means holding losses .
Notice that I am playing very very small. This imo is the key to trading swing successfully. Making sure you can add at lower prices and not to get taken out by adverse mkt moves due to being overleveraged.

Have I been wrong on my trade so far ..absolutely...am in trouble or worried or have I done too much damage this far absolutely not. I am very comfortable with my position.

Still long on all positions

Micro nq and micro es

And 18 options


And tqqq long.

I will state clearly as I have been about my entries and exits

At gains or losses. I look to pull out 5 to 10 k profit on these trades
However being in the mkt this long is a huge risk with this much leverage .


I prefer in and out on the day or scalping over this buy and hold swing style. A bomb could go off anything and the
Nasdaq could be down 400 to 1000 depending on what happened not a good place to be ever especially when already down on the trade overall but I am happy with today.

I anticipate the rally to continue thru the week

Looking great a classic bottom


I'm still long all positions just holding and waiting.

If up around 12k on nas then I will sell some options and micro futs to take some profits. Keep buying

Still long all positions that I have been holding.

I see the bulls being in charge in the day and not much strength at night
As the algos munch on all the sell stops of the week longs but the ones getting stopped out are not giving up. They jump back in with buys and the shorts are a lil nervous
Short term here.

I will take some off today on a nice rally say 160 plus points in the nasdaq but

I need to hold some to capture the real mark up and not be out of everything too early.

Btfd is back for now

Swing trading is redundant in a journal and not much to do once your position is set except trim the sails
So to speak on good up thrusts or hard sells.

With this position I have been very passive. Set n forget. I will do more trade sets in the future
Showing all kinds of different ways that I trade.

Passive on the hold that is .very dynamic on the entry and will be a little dynamic on the exit.
I was very early and on the wrong side but about to get paid

Going to take some off today on a decent rally

I am still inclined to buy dips
At short term or long term bottoms the final bad news is the catalyst for the turn or reverse to higher because the odds of the next report being even worse is very so slim and if you need to trade or reposition huge dollars then in order to not miss moves you just enter early and during chop in order to get decent average pricing

Selling half of micir nq and half of micro es.. options gaining slightly
Not as much as I hoped tqqq in the 27s holding tqqq

What a great day so far finally getting some traction on this trade

Need a nice steady climb out and up to get my options moving properly as far as value
They are long short option trades and if volatility is too great it reduces performance but I'm glad to see what I have been working on for the past 11 days finally paying off in a big way.


I'm not sure if anyone is interested but I can do some screen shots of my phone texts with some of my trading buddies where they try to get me to sell and take profits over and over again but I stick to my plan. Again I did not sell I did not waver I added into the face of adversity I went into the wind I paddled up the current to grab the best most ripe and delicious fruit understanding that very few others were venturing on my course and that soon I could ride the big tidal wave back down the river with my gains

Anyway I'll post up some of the texts
