+4.5 points today per contract

Well, I held a little longer than normal, but I didn't get the whole 30 point run! haha...

What a beauty! What a beauty.

I'm surprised you didn't take a single long today.

The sound on your videos is really low most of the time. Today I couldn't hear you at all.

Sorry about that, will fix the Mic.

I guess I realized the trend was down. Finally? There was I think clearer trading much later in the day as far as the Indicators in my opinion!

Yes, I have been focusing on trying to figure out how to find that trend without getting mixed up. If things get volatile again like a few years ago, then I would like to get into those larger runs. Been looking at a few different things to see it from a different perspective. The key is to keep the small stops and hit the trends...

Horst is great... I don't know how he squeaks the 1.5 points every day off the ES, but he does... Amazing to me. Imagine doing that with 400 contracts. The ES reminds me of trying to dance with a lubricated alligator. haha...

TF like a sassy Argentine dancing the Tango and needing a lead partner!

Where are you catching Horst's videos, please.

no trading today

Well, I was traveling today and caught a glimpse of a significant drop, so I will not get the opportunity to trade it fresh. Might miss tomorrow as well. Interesting days it seems.

+6.4 points today

This is my best day in a very long time. The volatility was immense which was quite beautiful!

I made a couple mistakes fighting the trend early on! What was I thinking. I got stuck on the hidden divergence and kept thinking long for some reason after the open!

Dangerous mistakes, but lesson learned and I decided to take a late entry on a breakout to see if I could get some points back. I have never seen a move the upside like what happened later today. All I can say is WOW....

Times like these I just need to hold em'!

Look through the attachments on this thread and you will find the indicator from Fattails.

I use the default from this indicator.

+3.8 points today


I probably could have been up as much as 15 points had I traded large stops, but that could easily work the other way as well! I couldn't discover the pivot, and have time for the other 2 seconds to click the button before it took off like a rocket ship.

I was able to find the slower entries and get those which were a little more uncertain, but in the end, it really didn't matter on a day like this. The reward was there.
