-1.6 points today per contract

Ok, so......

Too much, too soon, as you can see there were really only 2 areas and they would have been gifts.

However, I did see a few of the moves, but I didn't see the power behind them.

1 BE trade, 3 gifts.

too many trades! Self Control....

Don't feel too bad. Henry dropped 8 ticks the same day, two gifts. He espoused patience and confidence that there will be good trades the next day.

It blew by areas pretty happily.

My fault for coming out too hungry though. Did the same darn thing today. I was close to the turn-around, but already expended my trades.

Just missed some good moves. Very close, and I am waiting a little bit longer.

3 trades, 2 BE's, 1 gift.

NO trading for me today. I have been busy working. Got a great possibility that will allow me to retire and trade all day and all night for the rest of my life. I am in big hopes it flushes out! This will be my third time hitting it BIG, but won't get there for a few years as these things take forever!

Took 4 trades today.... I broke my golden rule.

There were only 2 good looking trades, 1 long, 1 short, and I got one.

+.4 points today

Well, I thought for sure that I had the breakout of the 23% retracement heading south, but it had one more in it. I think this was merely confusion over which was the 23% retracement as it had a few pullbacks.


I then took a short at the better area, but I scaled way way way too soon. I didn't let it play out as I got too impatient w/ a crying baby in the background. All the reason to only trade w/ complete concentration.

I am minimizing my trades though. Once I have broken that bad habit then I can focus on the others! Onward and upward!

Life is good!

In the spirit of helping each other, I offer this.

You said it looked long at about 3:20 AM on your chart. However, there was huge bearish diversion. Also, there was big sep on 987, 1597, and 4181.

How did we know there would be so much sideways before the drop? Big trailing bands on 377 and 610, then later 987, 1597, and 4181. Wide bands!

Nice short after 3:37. Thanks for pointing out that 76 fib!

The bottom that followed hit a 76 fib, BTW. The bottom pivot was a pullback, not the days low.

I had the 76 fib pullback on the longer term chart on that long. You are right, that would have been a nice entry. (I was done as I couldn't focus)

If you trade off bearish divergence after a big run, then I believe you will make a lot of challenging shorts possibly. Since QE2 issues, there have been a TON of setups just like this where the market then shoots up up up.

Separated (WIDE) bands just means VOLATILITY or MOVEMENT and it has two choices. 1. BULL FLAG (which is what has been happening regardless of separation and 2. A retracement to some good area.

I am now cautious on what you have perceived as it is what I learned also, but take a look back in early February and boy, oh boy, that would have killed you much like it did me. I pretty much use divergence as a last indicator after AREA, MACD's, the way the bars are moving up/down (strong/weak) and then divergence last. I got my ass handed to me the last few weeks trading divergence.

I have pretty much given up on divergence unless the market has been open for a while, trending well and then forms some divergence. With the government intervention it has been like standing in front of a freight train. The market dynamic using this system has changed significantly in the last few months and it is eye-opening.

That is why I believe it o-so-important to see different market attitudes to know what is possible, likely etc. if it doesn't work out.

Thanks for your input, and it is greatly appreciated! I just have a block accepting some of it. haha...
