Isn't that a kicker!

Dragging myself out of bed at 3:30am PDT to be ready for opening, day after day, waiting for the big break. Last night I broke training and stayed up til 10:30am. After having PM someone about taking a break, I decided I needed one and slept in.

I've awoken -showered etc and had my morning coffees and I'm now online.

The price fell from 1358.25 to a low of 1334.75 so down 23.50 or $1,175 in a few hours on one contract.

My o/n order missed getting filled by 2 ticks.

Ah well, there's a reason for everything...
Now to figured out the reason! hah, hah.

The big irony is that I had today marked as a change in direction.
I guess I was so tired and worn out I missed it.

Live and learn.

peace, love and joy to you

Review:IB trades against retail customers, delays quotes by 7-10 seconds so that they may fill orders for the firm at better market prices than those shown to customer, routinely "scalp" retail customer like it is their right just for being in the business. Customer service NEVER gives an adjustment you are entitled to - tell you submit a "ticket" for review by their "committee"

I am sure it does trade against its customers. They will only fill you on the opposite side of the spread when they have a matching IB customer order to net it against. Their adjust their prices by the spread later to cover their "appropriation" I have even been filled above the high of the day (or course on a protective posted stop) so this means the trade was never passed to the exchange. Now what is a bucket shop again?
gotta laugh - people talk of low commissions - IMHO the commissions are just a cover so you don't look at the trades where they take the other side against u.
(Disclaimer: IB abbreviation is for a fictional firm "Interesting Bob(IB)" Any relationship to any entity real or imagined is only coincidence.)

-----Week 8: 16 May to 20 May -------
Monday - no trades.

Overnight sell was not filled.

The spreadsheet estimated FE=LE at [email protected]:33 versus actual at [email protected]:32.
(I did not take this order as my account is not strong enough for a countertrend and I believe we may have a roll-over tomorrow. I am really looking of FE=HE and in my HZ. The second reason is that I am still struggling to be ready at open. Though I was up on time today there was lost time in attending to my infected finger - which isn't healping my sleep much either and adding to my worry and stress.)

The HE estimate was 1341.25 and the actual was 1341.25 wow! exact!!
I almost took this sale but it was at 10:06 and the full range of the day was already in place, making the odds of a sharp fall reduced. A second factor was I did not get the topping action of the 1 minute CCI that I like to see. With the potential for a sloppy balance of the day being a long T-top and I am looking for nice sweet 15 point move the setup did not score 100% green lights across the board. Net result is that I am fine with not taking the trade.
