NYSE e-Mini futures facing strong resistance at the 105500 area. A break of this area for the futures will be a good signal for entry in ABB.

ABB price is now at 19.48. Just shows you how important Time and Sales is in reading the order flow and keeping you out of trades that don't display enough momentum.

amit,
I didn't like ABB personally at all due to strong resistance at 19.53 (everyone is different) so didn't alert my members to it but I saw momentum and snatched a 5c scalp out of it exiting at 19.52.
Perhaps we see momo in different ways
Good trading to you.
Richard

amit1986 started this thread Hi Mr. Charts,

I did see strong buying pressure on the Time and Sales on ABB around the 19.48 - 19.49 area, however, I made the decision to enter the trade upon the break of the 105500 price level of the NYSE E-mini futures as well. I guess, in a way, I was not planning to scalp ABB, but was looking to hold it for a while, so that is why I did not take the entry. Momentum was strong around your entry point, however, it died around your exit. As momentum died around your exit, futures also turned around. The only difference is you were able to quickly take advantage of it, while I didn't.

NYSE E-Mini futures on their way back up now. I'm sure you have it on your watch list, but check out XOM, it might present a good move as the futures break that area.

You're very welcome
I took a 17c bite out of LNC.
Someone has sent me an email basically calling me a liar about trading ABB and saying I'm raining on your parade.
In case anybody else thinks that I'm showing a screen shot of my broker window as a one off as I really don't have to prove anything to anybody, but maybe he has a point about this being your journal and so I won't post here again. Sorry.
Good trading to you, amit.
Best wishes,
Richard

Congrats on the LNC trade. I can probably figure out where you took your entry and exited. I guess I was too slow to enter. But hey, your experience speaks for itself.

As for the email you received, please do ignore that type of rubbish. I completely believe your trades and you are NOT "raining on my parade". In fact, I very much welcome your comments, suggestions and opinion on my journal. So please do continue to post here when you feel like and ignore others who say stuff like that.

Hi Richard!

I am surprised you are listening to this person. Do not let the good flow stop.
anyway, if someone does not believe or just donīt want to read it, the solution is simple, do not take a look at the thread and let the rest enjoy and even learn from the good comments and viewpoints.
And as you have done before with insulting people, just ignore them. I am very happy reading your and Amits threads, which I consider very full of good info.

Congratulation to both of you.
