Public Defender

We advised traders to ignore the hype and snarky comments that are prevelant on sites like Twitter. What value does it add to our life to argue with the silly traders who want to taunt the bears or the bulls?

Their Bias is so strong they need to defend their opinion publicly; a sure-fire method of missing some good trades that materialize in BOTH directions.

I noticed some Bulls acting if this 300 point drawdown wasn’t a significant achievement for the Bears. Wait until next year is their motto.

Why wait? Traders love the opportunity to play the game and capture pieces of the swings as the market moves.

We have undermined many milestones, including year middle, last year’s high, and this year’s open.

Note the 2 year range fo better sense of locating ourselves on the GPS. We look at objective criteria to make educted guesses about what the market may do in the immediate future.

No guarantees, but using educated guesses to try and take 4 or 4 points per day per contract out of the market with as little risk as possible.

Business as usual with the strong gap up in overnight trade to threaten shorts positions, after the longs were flushed when Turkeys had a hard time flying last week.

Game plan today was to think small realign with longs for testing 72/75.25, with aggressive support at 52.

Mondays, especially after a long layover require a bit more patience to allow the market to establish a tradable range. We suggested conservative traders stay sidelined for this open and get better odds for a short from a higher high after early shorts and trapped shorts squeezed. We acknowledged that the odds were better for small hit and run shorts than for longs, but the charts suggested bot type buys were possible for the longs despite the 40 point bounce that already had occured.

10 minute RTH was elected as our primary chart, along with the 15 globex.

We reminded traders to ignore the posturing on Twitter and treat this like a business: Try and grab 4 to 5 points per contract on average per day. Plan was to allow aggressive and trapped shorts to be stopped out then look for backing and filling as second or third mouse. #EMWS
