Excited to see how Horst handled today. What a trendy period we are in.

I didn't trade the TF today Gil, but Julia and Danielle each took the same run up from the 76 for 10 points each. Watch the vids they are awesome........

Cool, will do.

I already blew my 3 trades (actually 5) as to not over-trade.

As Danielle just mentioned. Sit on my hands.

Oh boy, my timing was shite today.

I couldn't seem to pull it out for some reason. I honestly could have stopped at just under a point negative, but I kept going thinking I was seeing it. I wasn't....

I have tried for the life of me to understand where the big pivots were today and I still have no CLUE. Any help?

Wow. I decided more than 3 trades today is ok, but I didn't expect this. Back to 3 trades.

Video is coming. It is quite large, so still putting it together.

ouch, man! This is a little step back, the 3 trades rule worked good, so stay with it. I am looking forward to your video. My session will start in couple minutes, so I hope that I will handle it, but everything can happen

Please comment on this review. I've taken the 7 day NTF trial. Thanks.

Looks like today was mostly sideways with 8 pt range.
If you missed the high at 5:50 AM, it's tough to catch a gradually declining run. That lasted until 8:40 AM.
At 8:42 a nice foot formed on 377. However, it didn't run far before a big pullback.
Quick market action at 8:47 made a long difficult to catch.
A long at 9:04 was one of the few clear signals.
9:30 to 10 usually lacks opportunities, I've read.
A 377 foot at 10:03 was an awesome opportunity. So was a long at 10:34.

1. 8 point ranges can be very nice for a countertrend trader. The trick is that you must understand this and identify with it. For instance if it is hovering within a longer term fib pattern and you know it could hang out here. Or, you are in a wedge (which we were) and it may not be ready for a breakout.

2. "tough" is an interesting word. I also don't know what time zone you are on without double checking. I am guessing you are on CST "Houston".

3. Yup.

4. Yes, I tried to get that long I believe if I think I know what you mean. It moved quicker than my brain.

5. Yes. I was in lala land.

6. Disagree. Instruments change patterns and sometimes you will have the best opportunities in that time.

7. Tried to get long at 9:59 your time, but it came down and knocked me out one last ime and I just gave up. I think 10:03 would be a bit late. 10:34 was nice.

8. I wanted to hit the 76 retrace at 11:01/11:02 area. I was tired and couldn't wait.

GM All,

Looking to take my trading to the next level and wondering: is there is a number of contracts I should stay with, considering how small ICE is? Currently trading 5. Look forward to your replies.
