ES Tuesday 9-8-15


Good morning to all. Since I am running late, I will keep it short and post a few charts. We are in a narrow trading range not knowing whether we made a lower high (1992) or a higher low (1899). That should be our focus for providing us direction and is the ~90 points of range. Right now we are smack in the middle of it.

kool, what is your time frame on the position trade? multiple days? or shorter? i see that you have a 3-min chart here
yeah, only because i showed the 30 min chart late yesterday. i know most are daytrading. My position trades are generally 1-3 days
that is interesting to know. i have a couple of questions.
if i may ask, what is your target and stop? i have not traded this long of a time frame so am curious. thanks again for the explanation.
also what made you change your time frame from day trading to short term? time commitments, etc?

First , for the past 3 months i have used a pat 10 point stop when opening a trade , rarely do i let it go the full ten. Only once so far. This trade ,since the 30 min chart and the short term 3 min chart were both very bullish ( with prc bands pointing up, avgs positve with red over black , and price action positve) i exited at 1972 for a 3500 dollar loss. Winners range from 5 to 20 thousand. Cycles point to a top tomorrow , so i will look for selling oppurtunities soon.
