don't need to show every trade because I've said dozens of times how I trade which is obviously a lot more helpful.

So for the hard of thinking I'll repeat again that I post the important levels because price moves between levels of supply and demand. The levels posted in advance were in the past important so may turn out again to be levels of dispute between buyers and sellers.

Between these levels are areas of range expansion, this is were I look for pullbacks on the lower time frame charts for entries to ride price onto the next level target.

However knowing what to do is not enough for some, they actually just want someone to continually give them the answers, they probably picked up this appalling habit in some cr@p socialist inspired education system.

guess this worked nicely for NDX recently..?  if you assumed at the Wednesday overnight low last week that the range is established, you had two full round-trips - four times 650 points or so..? 1197740991_USTech100Cash(1)_20200917_12_39.thumb.png.0d28a1a9744a15377a26a3d1d198e478.png

A post about trade management. I did not follow my playbook with respect to the hourly charts and at this point on the charts I was sucking the air between my teeth sitting on a loss short the Nikkei. But the longer time frame aspect of the trade idea was not invalidated. The resistance at around 23400 had not been breached and the Dow was still below the 50 Day MA. I was prepared to start scaling out at a loss if that resistance was breached but a series of lower highs emerged on the hourly charts. As Mr Dante says try to open a trade as close to the point where you know your wrong as you can, which I failed to do.

sorry for being block-headed, are you saying that it was wrong to short too far away from the resistance, because closing at the point were you would have considered your trade idea as invalidated would have come with a too large loss?  sounds like good advice..

why had you opened the trade anyway?

Well although it is one scaled into trade, for me it is two trades. A bad entry not following the playbook where the risk/return (distance) and probability would have been better and a good trade where I held onto it when the prospects (distance) were better.

So on a hourly time frame opening the trade was a mistake, but the trade management at a key level was better.

thanks, understood - was just wondering what made you enter it in spite of against your playbook - there must have been a valid reason, as in the end it worked out well

Just the general weakness in the US and European Indices and the view that they were unlikely to rise much further in the short term. But I did not have a specific set-up for the Nikkei which was showing strength at the time. I was also trying to trial trading longer time frames which I am not very good at. It is 1.45 AM Sydney time and it would be nice to change the hours I trade, but I doubt that I can.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
