You tried it one way, lost money, tried it the other way, lost money - exactly what happens to me when I try to trade on short-term charts.

no not quite, both took off ok but turned around at the 'first trouble area' (remember that lesson?), so just bailed.

Thought about buying a call?

I know nothing about sophisticated trading instruments. I stick with what I know and works for me.

remember that there are 2 pullback entries, the candle reversal pattern at the pullback fail and if you miss that the second is the breakout passed the prior high (for a long). The prior high is also the 'first trouble area' for the first entry type, if price can't make it past there you don't get the breakout traders joining in to push your earlier trade entry along, time to start doubting the whole move.

They've got hung up on the Dow daily pivot which would be an approp place for the bears to make a stand, if can clear that should see more movement to the upside.

You spend hours a day watching charts, and come away with nothing :(

For us retail investors day trading, it only make sense to bet substantial (relative to each individual) and GTFO when we get the our own target.

There's nothing sophisticated about buying a simple call.  Regarding options in general, people have turned them into something ridiculously complicated with various 'strategies' and all sorts of permutations and complications and other b*llocks.

🤔

I don't see how anyone can day trade with small sums of money.  I simply see it as an alternative form of investment that is more interesting and potentially more reward than index tracking.

Depends on the time frame?  This is not likely to be a long-term decline.

5 th Wave triangle my friends...choppy. rough and a turn signal,  DOW and DAX. 

For your further viewing pleasure the 'SELL' side of the market is the left button. 

Some of you not old enough to remember a bear market  may need to view slo mo replays of 1987 , 2000 and 2008.  Braces and fish tail haircuts like Kevin Keegan were obligatory.

See you at the bottom.  I m taking my dogs for a walk.

What level are you talking about when describing a bear market? Dow 20000 or lower?

 

If so, no chance.

People who live here and don't have their heads up their @rses (people who aren't Tories) have known it for a long time but Britain's economy really is in bad shape:

Quote

The plunge in profit, though in line with analyst expectations, showed Lloyds paying a toll for past misconduct while the rise in bad loans hinted at potential trouble ahead for Britain’s economy.
