In trying to get my account problem solved first I tried the live text chat.
It takes several minutes for a rep to come into the chat and quite a bit of time between each time you type something and they reply.

Then they had an account connection prb with broke the chat mid session and a stupit pop-up to tell you the session was re-established - which is wasn't and keeps popping up, you click it reappears about 100 times.

---------

Then you call them by telephone.
1-877-745-4222

I waited 9 minutes on hold waiting for a trade rep before I gave up waiting
Just imagine 9 min and in a position going against you and your computer down...

---
While waiting I saw on their screen the new account referral program -the irony of it all--

..........
peace, love and joy to you

Most people misinterpret my system(s). On the first page I have an overview of the simplified rules.
These include several discretionary measures such as "looking like the top is in", direction with MA etc.
They tend to look solely at the HZ and LZ as fixed -even though I write "splash zones".

Also the system is designed for normal range days averaging about 15 points.
Less than 12 is a NR day. Today's estimate is 9.75. So one can't be as confident of the HZ and LZ especially if there is range expansion during the day.

At this time it is looking like chop or a cabbage day. Today you could look for the high or low in the 13:00-14:00CT time slot.

At this time it is looking like chop or a cabbage day. Today you could look for the high or low in the 13:00-14:00CT time slot.


Today the HOD was 1545.50 @ 10:56 so in the HZ 1544.75 to 1547.75
Today's LOD was in the 13:00-14:00 window L1540.75 @ 13:12

Today's range = 4.75 == cabbage (cabbage is NR choppy, trendless mess)

High 1545.50
Low 1540.75
Open 1542.75
Close 1543.25
Percent 53%
VWap 1543.25
Range 4.75

best rng estimate == fork
Speed est range = 15.75
Estimated range = 9.75
Fork range est = 4.75

We still managed +2.25 on midpt chg, so postive but decreasing.
From Monday forward:
Mid: 1518.25 9.00 Mid: 1537.50 19.25 Mid: 1541.00 3.50 Mid: 1543.25 2.25

9:41 AM 3/8/2013

The big spike in the preopen session and the unusual time estimates and it being Crooks' Day
and only having 3 hours sleep and being under a lot of stress make me reluctant to trade.
As we have FE=HE it is possible that we are building a V day with [email protected]:32 then a low (11:00-12:00 area?)
and then back up towards the end of the day.

my range est applied to L1542.25 at 9:13
with est rng of 12 =>1552.75
OR
with fork range est of 10.50 => 1550.25 (and so with H1551.50 at 8:32 both HOD and LOD could possibly be in place )

back to bed
