March Comes in Lyin'

Gap up and Plunge

Bread and Butter

Man Does Not Live By Bread Alone

You won’t starve just eating bread and butter, but it’s what can sustain us while we are looking for some meat.

Muhammad Ali

“If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.”

Bread and Butter Trades

We all need a reliable go-to pattern or two. One that we know occurs regularly and one that we can count on to produce a few points for us everyday with minimal risk.

Make a sandwhich by finding Bread and Butter Trades that offer us a few points twice a day and we have elevated trading from a “Hobby” or “Gambling” to a Business.

We liked consolidation this morning, expecting range with 82 support and MATD for small hit and run or buy with 82 stop ow.ly/QEnt30nVLfG Yesterday was an outlier and not many old patterns like “key reversal day” have played out recently. Bots get it done fast. inside day

8:23 E need to beat 82/85 shorts 8:46 PM] E MATD first sell works magnet 85.5
11:28 PM E 08 we said was resistance for now 98/02 aggressive resist

Priceless. Skill is the great motivator.

Great problem nice solution. Pre-hung also works. square up both halves with 2 x 4 top and bottom shim the middle with spacer, then tip into place and shim bottom and sides, attach plum/ level and remove the 2 x4’s. Great House!

20 or so years ahead of their time Bama. I remember a real estate agent of mine gave me that book when it came out. (He was pretty riled up about Y-2k too, so I kind of thought skeptically of the doom and gloom for awhile).

Honor stop loss rule. Stopped clock trade finally works for deep long support bounce

1:10 E stop 64 for buy risk reward awful here for shorts 1:33 E must be paid by 80 if long. must must must


open gap still at 74.25 to 72 NRO

News events require adjusting plans. I thought would be range bound, but violation of 02 triggered lower targets including 95/ 92/ 88/ 82/ 75 retest. Still keeping 18/22 as resistance for now

Nice soft sell all night long after the egregious mystery move out of the starting blocks ow.ly/ILEi30nUx6J

IMHO It’s easier and less risky to buy support in an uptrend. Friday Gap fill gave committed long swing and position traders an opportunity to get on board if they wanted it.

I hope he left thru the backdoor …

Especially helpful when the market moves fast against our posted call. Oops button

It’s the process of weighing the case for both sides that is helpful imho rather than being blatantly biased. That way a violation of a stop indicates we are wrong with our judgment

Acquaintances come and go. True friends transcend time, politics, and distance

Let’s revisit this line 6 months from now and see how it plays out. I have been thinking run stops above it before a significant pullback. Ms market loves to fool the most people, including me

@Bamatrader Are you sure this is not senior citizen early dinner? If I see a piece of chicken…

Coulda woulda shoulda. Stop obsessing about yesterday and enjoy today. One day of trading should never make a difference

The Calm Before the Chaos?

The German government is coming under great stress for the two biggest banks are not really very healthy at this moment and suitors are foreign – not German…

The bail-in policy was devised because politicians did not want to have to contribute to bank failures they saw as inevitable in Southern Europe. To have foreign banks eying up German banks, the pillar of the EU, somehow strike a deep blow into the political heart of the EU.
