Post ES Trading

I have decided once again to tighten my STOP to 0.75 points. The 1st trade was made with the original larger STOP size of 1.25 points and suffered some slippage. I expect this month’s result to be a little erratic as I refine my methodology.

Re: ES Trading

new_trader started this thread I was busy Friday and most of Monday (Yesterday) so I havenít really got into sync with the market. However, I was confident enough to make another trade with the 0.75 point STOP size. I cut it early just to be safe. It is going to take a few trades before I am sure my methodology is sound enough with a tighter STOP...or not.

Re: ES Trading

new_trader started this thread Trading with a tighter STOP certainly focuses the mind. All trades were in the right direction which means my market reading is 100% correct, as usual, but I just need to refine my entry. I have (I think) pinpointed where I have been going wrong, which is good.

Re: ES Trading

new_trader started this thread I was anticipating at least a 10 point move down from the mid 1150's which would make the target mid to low 1140's.

And there you have it - Market@1141.50

"It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight! It is no trick at all to be right on the market. You always find lots of early bulls in bull markets and early bears in bear markets. I've known many men who were right at exactly the right time, and began buying or selling stocks when prices were at the very level which should show the greatest profit. And their experience invariably matched mine--that is, they made no real money out of it. Men who can both be right and sit tight are uncommon."

Re: ES Trading

new_trader started this thread I notice someone has started a live ES calls thread. Good on him/her. Today isn't a day to trade for me, unless it starts acting right for me. But in any case, the trade to make would be a long around 1250.00 for a move into the low to mid 1250's...probably 1253 to 1255. Market currently @ 1250.00
