What a narrow range this

SPX 5

Posted by donkeyface on 31st of Oct 2022 at 02:31 pm

What a narrow range this thing has slipped,  not unexpected but always surprising anyway.  Big Green day up yFriday,  inside chop before big news week.   

I just feel like it will coil into the news but I don't know.    I can't get a feel for it today... got a little chopped around today, but surviving.         The 5min did look promising,  took a quick one,  lost conviction.   The scalping continues.   Going to stare at a cloud or something.    Bailed early on that one.    (don't worry I won't be in habit of play-by-playing my scalping.. LOL)    


RISK OFF is never a bad idea for how i do this.  

Yep,  can’t hide this one…  another excellent call.   You’d think that might get old,  but nahhh. 😊 

I need this shirt.

I need this shirt.   Also, do you sleep?   I thought for sure I couldn’t be out worked… but I do try to sleep sometimes.

The rest of my tools on a dedicated screen.  I only trade ES,  will be adding RTY (always liked that better) and CL in the future (again), but not yet.     

#INTERNALS  

top:  advance/decline,  NYSE TICK, Nasdaq TICK,  TRIN arms index                      

bottom:  60min ES, 2min ES, 2min NQ, VIX (inversely plotted)

Lolol

Wow,  what humility from this guy:  “my mistake was not trusting myself.”

We don’t talk about losses.  ðŸ˜‚

Any VIX over 25 and I'm pretty happy.    All about risk management though,  gotta scale down to survive some of these insane wicks.   And it's a little scary right now with the lack of orders on the DOM.   I do replays often and the DOM was consistently in the 100's+++ not so long again about 10-20 spots above and below...   Now its well below 100 as the norm.   No slippage issues ever,  so no big deal... But definitely interesting.



Also, i never intend to scalp,  but I don't like pull backs... so I just grab it and run pretty often.   Plus some businesses survive on commissions and I'm happy to contribute (that's what I'm telling myself anyway   ).

The 5% of us are THE BEST subscribers. LOL...   #GotJokes         

   No offense taken.   I'm one of the many futures traders... the unfortunate fact is you need to know both.  Levels (psychological or otherwise) on one have the other respond for no apparent reason, etc.      

But if I could only have one,  it'd be the futures charts because that's what I actually transact. 

All the  futures (YM, NQ, RTY, even CL) over the cash indices or etfs really.   But I don’t wanna get carried away.  LOL

This place is the best place, but I would love it for the charting to be the ES instead of the SPX for selfish reasons.    #Selfish
