Today I had great morning prep but I was a little early with my first trade. I then made a little bit in the morning when price could not break 12380 area. I made a mistake and only got off one contract and then exited at the first target. My prep had me holding until 12460 but because I only had one I took the first target. The afternoon started bad with me taking a short after some real sloppy price movement. Then price held at 12430 and I thought we could break 12460 so I went long and held till the close.

Today is another simple prep, if we break 12460, shorts only first target 12360 then down to 12300. If we hold then longs up to 12520 first target 12550 2nd and 12700 3rd. The arrow drawings are the patterns I will look for for the break or hold.

7/13/2012 prep


Today the YM is Corrective but still holding bias at 12575 if we hold this level we should retest 12400. Our line in the sand is 12500 a hold and we should move back up to test 12575 and 12650 is the next level. If we break 12500 then down we go to test 12400.

7/16/12 Prep

After the huge move Friday we should move sideways for a day. I'm looking for the YM to find support at 12650 before a possible push back up. If that doesn't hold 12605 is another level to watch. The deeper we retrace down the more likely we will not break Fridays high and push up to 12760 area, our next stop..

7/16/12 Trade

I waited for the right time to go long. The YM moved through 12650 then broke up and came back to it before moving up. My exit was based on the SP500 hitting Fridays High. I trade only one contracted today; I'm not feeling the greatest.

Nice trade. Hope you feel better soon.

7/17/2012 Prep

The 12640 area has held and YM has been trading in a range. Today with the Fed chairman speaking to congress we should get a push one way or another. I will use 12640 for my line in the sand, looking to go long with any bounce off that area or short with any clear brake. There is also a smaller level building around 12685 to look for longs.

I had good money management but I was trading only one contract, my ATM strategy was set for 2. That's why the quick profits on the first two trades. The last trade was the killer, I change the ATM strategy to 1 contract and also changed the stop to Breakeven after 15 pts. Plus 1. I made a mistake and put in 15 pts plus 15 pts. So instead of one pts above my entry it exited a great trade early. I might not have held for the 100 pts with one contrated but my first target was 12665.
