Another day of sheeeit, I've got to stop watching markets - just too depressing - and stick to mechanical trading.

I always get the impression you only do long? is it?

Wonder if PMI will stop the selloff :( A lot of resistance to going any higher, stalemate for weeks on end 😢

the expected US PMI is slight improvement over last month, but if comes in if is less than 50 could be in for a big drop Friday.

I mean, I don't do 5 minute charts going long and short based on incredibly fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants signals, but maybe that's the only way to profit from 3 - 4 weeks of price going absolutely f*king nowhere (on hourly, 4 hour and daily charts)

@dmedinI've a naughty question to ask, are you a compulsive trader?

for me as well, 1 minute chart does nothing, I find hourly best. But then I don't do technical and fundamentals much I do more on patterns trading.

I am, and I struggle to find other things to do during the day to keep me occupied and away from trading :(

My routine includes playing a game of FreeCell to see if I have my wits about me and there is something useful in approaching the game by only moving a card when you are confident that it is an improvement. I usually have favored indices for going long or short and set price alarms as a visual reminder of an assessment at the beginning of the session. This week most of my time has been spent reading a book and only glancing at the charts every 15 min.

Looks like the hourly time frame is no good for me, as I just don't have the patience for it.

And I've spent so much time looking at charts that I have very few skills that would make me employable elsewhere.

It's five minutes or bust - noose time :D

    • Ok - following on from the last chart One thing you MUST remember is NO-ONE knows what a market is going to do exactly, we are GUESSING and using BEST GUESSES based on PROBABLISTIC outcomes CNX1 - The ETF of Nasdaq100 - did exactly as it said on the tin We had: The Triple Bottom  The 2RSI tick up on the formation of the Triple Bottom Then the pullback Then we got a DOUBLE top formation, which for those inclined offered a shorting opportunity: Double Top  BOTH the 7RSI and 2RSI showed on the close of the bar labelled (RED) 2 - negative divergence (Lower high reading in the RSI) compared to red bar labelled 1 Break of the low of bar labelled red 2 = go short with a stop 1 penny above the high of bar labelled 2 Seeing these "swings" is much much easier by adding a swing file to ones charts - Remember also most chart patterns have logical places that INVAIDATE the trade - that is where your stop goes! Over 110 years ago - WD GANN said "Buy Double/Triple bottoms and sell double/Triple tops" - That advice still works today and I can attest it beats lots of the touted trading methods out there
