good day so far

FetteredChinos started this thread well, FTSE is now starting to play ball, and providing we dont take out yesterday's low, then it looks as though i shall be reversing and selling at todays close.

fingers crossed, as i could do with a big win!

FetteredChinos started this thread hurrah. gone short @ 4538 on the future. banked a healthy 34 points today. not always this good!

current state of play.

7 trades, 5 wins, total points 126 after spreads.

just under the long term average, but healthy nonetheless

FetteredChinos started this thread well not so much a wabang as a wa-whimper...


after the action on friday i thought we would get a bit of a sell-off today, but hey ho, it didnt happen.

got a signal to go long, so reversed @ 4536

bagged another 2 points (count'em ! lol)

so thats 8 trades, 6 wins, 128 points after spreads...

dontcha just love it

FetteredChinos started this thread Well you have got to love being long during a market sell-off.

still, im still hanging in there. currently about 120 points adrift of entry. curses. but system says up, so we gotta stick with it until it changes..

after the action so far today, we could well be looking to reverse at close of play tomorrow, but we shall see what happens in between now and then.

looking odds on for a hefty loss at the moment......

apologies, if anyone is following this "live"

kerikey

FetteredChinos started this thread Well, amazingly we broke the lows of two days ago, so the long position remains for another day. still no signal to go short.

this trade has been running for an eternity now, and with all the hoo-hah in the markets at the moment, its quite hard to stick with it.

still, a system is a system. so Longs Away chaps.

well its all over lol

FetteredChinos started this thread finally gone short at last. closed at a loss of about -175.

not great at all, but we shall see how we do over an extended period.

Dow looking toppy after strong rises from suppost at 10,000 FTSE may well follow it down early next week.

A NEW START

FetteredChinos started this thread Right, here goes...

change of tack for this journal.

shall now be using it to test out the merits (or otherwise) of the Genesis system on the DOW. Please do not PM me for details of it, as you will have to purchase it from DC. this journal is just a tool for me to see if it works over a period of a few weeks.


no trade thus far this week.

pattern for the week undecided as yet. narrow range day yesterday.

looking for a buy entry circa 9707, or a sell entry circa 9923

will probably either happen today or tomorrow. and the day it does should set up the pattern for the week.

first trade...

FetteredChinos started this thread right, late spike up on the DOW yesterday evening after the FOMC announcement triggered a seel at 9923.

now targeting 9818 to take profit, disaster stop-loss at 10023.


expecting a down day today, and the first part of thursday, before looking for a reverse and a bounce in the 9746 region..(this may not be hit)
