Trading What I See — The blog is an intraday look at the markets I trade, and how I try to trade them, covering the period from August 2006 until July 2007.
Don’t assume I actually took all the trades as shown. Although that is my goal and I did take many of them, I mark up the charts for my benefit – this is the way I should have traded. I even mark up charts on days when I was not trading. These don’t show ALL the trades – just what I can see as key trades or ideas for each day. By reviewing them often, it helps me to recognize a similar situation the next time it occurs.
Right now I’m only trading the Russell 2000 e-mini futures, and most of the charts are based on three minute bars. But ALL of the techniques I use work on any market – any timeframe. When I’m swing trading the only thing that changes is the length of the actual bars. I “clean up” the charts before I post them, removing indicators, notes, and lines that cause clutter.
Eventually I may add a few pages showing what programs and indicators I depend on, and the types of setup I’m trying to find. But most of this you’ll discover just by looking at the charts and my comments. In the meantime ….
