So sometimes you feel like you're blogging your heart out and viewers say "eh", (not EminiEdge followers of course!). I've tried a few different formats lately and wonder how they are received out there... I've been slowly updating the posts with HD video, different pics and discussions and more options to see them including the EminiEdge site (here), Google +, YouTube, RSS Readers, Twitter and Facebook, not to mention some obscure places. Also I am posting videos a little different lately pointing to YouTube as in this Emini Trading Video. So here's your chance, what would you like to see more or less of...? What do you love or hate about the EminiEdge blog? No SPAM, No sign-ups... Just a one question, anonymous survey. If there's something that I'm missing let me know.
Hello EminiEdge Traders,
Had a nice Christmas rally today that rewarded us handsomely if we were patient. Seems to be a theme lately, patience and trading discipline. Anyway, I'll be taking some time off for the holidays and enjoying time with family and hope you do the same. Take some time and refresh, it does a trader good! Had the bias right today from the get go, taking a counter trend scalp short to stat the day right followed by a few longs that took FOREVER... Choppy movement with a little lower volume is the rule rather than the exception this week and likely will stay that way until after the new year. Gotta be careful to not get chopped up in this... Anyway, trying a different way of posting the videos to the site so let me know if you have any issues viewing them or if the quality is not what you have come to expect. I seem to be whispering a bit during the trades, not sure why, I tweaked the volume up a bit, hopefully it's not too hard to hear. Have a great Christmas!
Well, patience paid off today for us EminiEdge traders. They say the early bird gets squished like a worm, or something like that. After sitting on my hands for over an hour a few nice trades showed up and we were rewarded. This is one of my difficulties historically, waiting for the best setups. Getting a little better at it, though we can all use more discipline. Anyway, traded away the morning more than usual but it was nice to see the winners rack up so I'll take it. Hope you all got a piece of it. There was a big volatility spike at 9:15 Chicago, which I think was FED talking about rates, but if someone has better info drop me a line... Hope this is useful to you, and if so feel free to drop me a +1, always appreciated.
It is crucial in my trading to find the trend direction early and "get on it and sit on it". This has been one of my biggest difficulties beyond the discipline of following my plan, that reversals seem a "certainty" at the time, but run me over. Determining the trend direction and entering continuations (rather than trading Emini reversals) is a higher probability way to go. Today was a perfect opportunity to practice that, and a couple of trades worth 35 ES points is nothing to sneeze at and come quickly if you simply ride the wave. Getting in early is key and possible, just be careful not to be married to a direction... Anyway, hope it is useful to you, and if so, don't be shy to throw a +1 my way, always appreciated...
