At 8:25:38 AM Eastern Time Friday, 987 reversed down sharply. That was three bars before the employment news and price reversal! 610 reversed sharply 2 bars before news and price reversal. How did they know?

I noticed that also. I have no idea, sometimes the news works like that and my guess is that it was leaked or just a strong feeling it was going that way?

That was very interesting also!

My trading on Friday almost shouldn't count. Whenever I have to rush out and don't have time to trade I always FORCE. I don't know why I overtraded etc. but that day could very easily have been profitable. Frustrated and until I can really focus again (too much workload right now) then I believe it is just too hard to really be there 'mentally'.

I think that all big investment companies have their own sources of news besides CNBC. A lot of times information get leaked few minutes ago. It think about couple weeks ago it got leaked almost 30 minutes before report came out.

One friend of mine works for big security company and he said they can get news before everybody else and I think it work the same way with all big investment companies. ( for example he told me date when iPnone 4 gonna come out on verizone about 4-5 months before it happened.) So big companies open their long term positions way before other traders. And when traders like you and me get that information we get the last pop of the whole move while they start getting profit. "Buy on rumors sell on fact" that's what they say!

That's why when you open position on fact news already included in price and it start moving oposit direction because they are taking profit.

-.4 points per contract


Wow, what a great movement, but terrible trading.

I broke my #1 rule of limiting myself to 5 trades. I wasn't angry and I had to speed the market up to get my trading in as I am waking up later and later these days.

I had one good trade, but not enough to bring me back to 0, but technically it told me to hold it but I didn't.... Why... That 14 point short was very smooth and told me a lot of people liked short!

Interesting couple weeks.

I like trading just 1 contract as it gives me a way to recover more quickly.

+3.6 points today per contract

Amazing how trading the live market made me a bit clearer. I need to start heading to bed a bit earlier and get up early to hit the market.

I noticed something is that if I am 'wrong' with the general market condition, then I tend to give up for the day and walk away. So, I start off strong, the market does something that I don't understand 'yet' and then I give up. Interesting...

Check out the short I took today, as I think it was the 3rd trade. I called it quite a bit ahead....

Yes, I did too. It seems to me to be the first day of being very clear to me in a while!

+1.6 points today per contract

Wow, why didn't I wait for it to hit my target!

I could have walked away! I felt a strange hint that it could be going long so I bailed and would have looked for a new entry.

Happy with my trading, except I didn't see the long long long except on the 1597 possibility.

out of curiosity, have you, or do you take into account @bugsbunny's numbers?

these seem incredibly accurate, and it seems @kbit also uses them too

either way to Sunday, both of you are and have been doing some impressive work

Well, yes, I have used Bugs Numbers to help me out some on seeing s/r lines, but not in the last week or so. I am mixed on his #'s as I could probably pull out many of these pivots ahead of time and do the same thing. Not taking anything away from Bugs, much like some could do what I have done and do much better or similar etc..

So, in a word, my feelings over bug's #'s are that I have 'mixed' emotions. They seem interesting thus far...
