n is biased here towards up
(01:14 PM) johnl96:
on the es
(01:14 PM) ppusa:
after this 10 point correction PnF could contradict that
(01:15 PM) Tom_B:
lng
(01:15 PM) ppusa:
the 30 point PnF says higher
(01:15 PM) ppusa:
the 25 reversed
(01:15 PM) johnl96:
here's my thinking pp, nothing else I've said today's been right, I might as well say something outrageous
(01:15 PM) ppusa:
a few more points up and the 30 reverses
(01:16 PM) ppusa:
but a few more points up breaks the trendline
(01:16 PM) ppusa:
brach said last night hold today's low which obviously we didn't could mean several days up
(01:16 PM) ppusa:
also i think he mentioned 1440
(01:16 PM) ppusa:
google looking for a few good men
(01:16 PM) ppusa:
i mean days up
(01:17 PM) ppusa:
all points to higher
(01:17 PM) Tom_B:
Chimp lng :)
(01:18 PM) Tom_B:
added
(01:19 PM) ppusa:
70 reverses the 30 point...after this there is the 50, etc.
(01:19 PM) ppusa:
decision time here
(01:19 PM) Tom_B:
C'mon stop fuel
(01:19 PM) ppusa:

(03:20 PM) Daniel X:

(03:20 PM) Daniel X:
jimmer
(03:20 PM) Daniel X:

(03:20 PM) raz_62:
34 period channel also
(03:20 PM) raz_62:
back and forth
(03:21 PM) raz_62:
on 50t
(03:21 PM) jimmer49:
only way to play these little quick bb moves is to lay in wait with a limit order near top or bottom band and if filled grab 2 point as soon as you have it
(03:21 PM) ppusa:
nq closing beneath yesterday's low sets up turtle soup
(03:21 PM) Daniel X:
or hold till reverse BB
(03:21 PM) jimmer49:
if wrong the lose 2, but mostly right
(03:22 PM) Ira-1:
well 1091 came to pass, so much for the 60% probability. Still in a downtrend
(03:22 PM) johnl96:
no it doesn't pp
(03:22 PM) Daniel X:
PP if we close below 53/58 1400 looks promising
(03:22 PM) tomsurf:
jimmer- lol, I imagine that just a couple of blinks
(03:22 PM) jimmer49:
once reversal has shown itself is often too late when bb range only 4
(03:23 PM) Daniel X:
jimmer i meant to the oposite BB
(03:23 PM) raz_62:

(03:23 PM) jimmer49:
tomsurf - quickest way to make money I know, but not really fun imo
(03:23 PM) johnl96:
possible turtle soup on es but not on nq
(03:23 PM) raz_62:
for any interested
(03:23 PM) tomsurf:
jimmer- I think the key you mentioned is having order in and ready.
(03:24 PM) tomsurf:
otherwise it's already moved
(03:24 PM) amer_68:
JIMMER What if slide along band like at 14:53 & 150 2est?
(03:24 PM) ppusa:
if i may say 2 cents about scalping...i think it best that one waits for the best setups. inmy experience it takes full concentration to catch the best setups and if i begin looking for scalps it takes away from the biggies. Of course there are a few exceptions like the 2nd hump being worth about 10 points.
(03:24 PM) johnl96:
jimmer, is this that enthios bb scalp thing I was reading about?
(03:25 PM) JKearney:
who releases the trades in here?
(03:25 PM) johnl96:

(03:27 PM) dave_b_quik:

(03:27 PM) JKearney:

(03:31 PM) tomsurf:
ann- I woulda guessed that w/out looking I think
(03:31 PM) tomsurf:
but tells us we be doing nothing ;-)
(03:31 PM) Daniel X:
unless 65/75 gets clear
(03:31 PM) raz_62:
if we knew then what we know now
(03:31 PM) ann_87:

(03:32 PM) raz_62:

(03:36 PM) johnl96:
jimmer, enthios woulda shorted 1453 (i think) on 2 min and covered on next bb touch...is that kinda what you're talking about?
(03:36 PM) Daniel X:
pit 605 full
(03:36 PM) raz_62:

(03:37 PM) johnl96:

(03:37 PM) raz_62:

(03:37 PM) jimmer49:
yes, john
(03:37 PM) johnl96:
no luck tho
(03:37 PM) raz_62:
maybe
(03:38 PM) jimmer49:
It was one of those that would have lost unless very patient
(03:38 PM) Daniel X:
i salut all who will trade this move
(03:38 PM) ann_87:
tomsurf just to clarify i was speaking of the smax 3 min 9period adx... not the 14 period
(03:38 PM) raz_62:
on your advice ill watch
(03:38 PM) tomsurf:
ann- ah... I was mostly just kidding ya after watching all this chop ;-)
(03:39 PM) Tom_B:
nice bb shrt
(03:39 PM) raz_62:
its going down
(03:39 PM) ann_87:
np tom... just wanted to clarify what adx i was speaking about
(03:40 PM) Daniel X:
i do not have the nerves for this
(03:40 PM) jimmer49:
very good bb short because price breached the upper bb on 3 min by about 2 and bb remained flat, and then price fell through to the downside
(03:40 PM) Tom_B:
This one i didn't take, dah
(03:40 PM) jimmer49:
that is a very good setup, but must be very quick to spot and get
(03:40 PM) nell6:

(03:41 PM) Tom_B:

(03:42 PM) Daniel X:
smax BB surge
(03:42 PM) Tom_B:
pp ?
(03:42 PM) jimmer49:
on those bb trades it is always a snap judgement when to get out, but I usually expect min 2 points and try to get at least 3/4 of way to opposite bb.
(03:42 PM) Tom_B:
tnx
(03:42 PM) jimmer49:
general feel can help to stay longer at times
(03:43 PM) ppusa:
tom?
(03:43 PM) raz_62:
off duty cop shoots a child by accident in philly...

cop was giving demonstration in a school - kid was not killed
(03:44 PM) jimmer49:
willing to settle for b/e rather than give up too soon, because there will be another trade very soon unless range changes
(03:44 PM) Tom_B:
ride both sides or stay with trnd ?
(03:44 PM) ppusa:
you talkiing to me?
(03:45 PM) johnl96:

(03:45 PM) jimmer49:
usually no real trend is when this is best done
(03:45 PM) Tom_B:
Taxi ?
(03:45 PM) Daniel X:
no trend
(03:45 PM) Tom_B:

(03:45 PM) jimmer49:

(03:55 PM) Daniel X:

(03:57 PM) jimmer49:
lose a point or 2, make 2 or 3 with a success ratio of about 3 to one when conditions right
(03:57 PM) Daniel X:

(03:57 PM) jimmer49:
and sometimes end up with 6 or 7 profit

raz_62:
very helpless feeling to be wrong after 4
Daniel X:
or just cannot stomach it anymore
Daniel X:
yes very true raz
Tom_B:
cut that out, no taking sides...besides it's a specific trade...more hit & run oriented...esp after extnded moves whn the mkt's out of balace
Daniel X:
i saw PP hold a trade after 4 once and it only worked out till 4:13!!!!
Daniel X:
scared the ....out of him i bet
johnl96:
4:13's a pretty decent 1 min scalp actually
johnl96:
sometimes
Daniel X:
i no longer get myself into a pay and pray trade
Daniel X:
i'll let the volitilty take me out...and on to the next one
Daniel X:
no need to be right against some big player stepping in
johnl96:
looks like support's holding on es...
johnl96:
but then so's resistance
johnl96:
and they're the same number!!
Daniel X:

i need to just grab 5 pts...get that a lot
(04:18 PM) Daniel X:
no not u ..john..was calling chop entries but i think he was expecting to much out of the trades
(04:18 PM) nell6:
the chop is where the market is most of the time?
(04:18 PM) raz_62:
why did we chop till close
(04:18 PM) Daniel X:
he expected a breakout
(04:18 PM) raz_62:
thats not normal
(04:19 PM) Daniel X:
be cause the range from the am was put in at the 11 am low
(04:19 PM) Daniel X:
i add 15 points to that to estimate the chop zone
(04:19 PM) Daniel X:
and w8 for the break out
(04:20 PM) raz_62:
break low or high
(04:20 PM) raz_62:
either way
(04:20 PM) Daniel X:
if i get chooped up by it going in and out of that zone we ususally go nowhere and the locals step up to the plate and scalp each other to death
(04:20 PM) raz_62:
how long have you been trading nq
(04:21 PM) Daniel X:

(04:22 PM) Daniel X:
the volitlty was lost so i had to come to NQs
(04:22 PM) Daniel X:
yes Nell
(04:22 PM) Daniel X:
because of the margin rule
(04:22 PM) nell6:
nq more choopy though
(04:22 PM) Daniel X:
alot of day traders had to leave stocks and come here
(04:23 PM) Daniel X:
yes more chop ..but if you can trade NQ..stocks are a walk in the park
(04:23 PM) johnl96:
yes, daniel, I do hold too long in a choppy mkt
(04:24 PM) Daniel X:
you had good enties
(04:24 PM) Daniel X:
entries
(04:24 PM) Daniel X:
i was hoping you took every damn 3 points you saw
(04:25 PM) johnl96:
I made money today, but I gave too much back
(04:25 PM) Daniel X:
you have to remember that in chop even though your right in the direction your stopp won't hold
(04:25 PM) TheBigD:
wish there was a way to tell when it's going to chop
(04:25 PM) Daniel X:
so you gotta look for the 5 point target
(04:26 PM) Daniel X:
ther is a way
(04:26 PM) Ensign Software:
The Ensign Windows training class starts in 5 minutes in the Ensign Windows chat room.
(04:26 PM) Daniel X:

i showed you
(04:26 PM) TheBigD:

(04:27 PM) ppusa:

(04:27 PM) Tom_B:
LOL
(04:27 PM) Tom_B:
no
(04:27 PM) Daniel X:
i add 15 points
(04:27 PM) raz_62:
not
(04:27 PM) johnl96:
ok daniel, go the lo, now what?
(04:27 PM) Daniel X:
so 40 to 55 was the chop zone
(04:27 PM) raz_62:
thats only 41
(04:27 PM) raz_62:
low was 36.5
(04:27 PM) Daniel X:
yes 40 41
(04:28 PM) Daniel X:
add 15 points to that #
(04:28 PM) raz_62:
duh
(04:28 PM) raz_62:
my adding was bad on that
(04:28 PM) Daniel X:
it a rough estimate
(04:28 PM) Tom_B:
pp, remember ur name doesn't come up here, it's greyed out...to me..that's it..i'll try pm u
(04:28 PM) Daniel X:
11 am
(04:28 PM) Daniel X:
low
(04:28 PM) Daniel X:
add 15 points when we turn around
(04:28 PM) Daniel X:
add you get roughly 55 right?
(04:29 PM) nell6:
the low was at 11:30
(04:29 PM) Tom_B:
pp shud be ok..
(04:29 PM) nell6:
or 10:45 est
(04:29 PM) Daniel X:
look at where the high was made after that 11 am low
(04:29 PM) Daniel X:
no forget the low low just the 1 am low
(04:29 PM) johnl96:
are you talking exactly 11:00 or the lows on either side?
(04:29 PM) Daniel X:
11 am
(04:29 PM) Daniel X:
low
(04:30 PM) johnl96:
1444.50?
(04:30 PM) Daniel X:
reversal period occurs right there
(04:30 PM) Daniel X:
11 oclock reversal period
(04:30 PM) Daniel X:
usually
(04:31 PM) johnl96:
ok so the chop zone is between there and +15 pts?
(04:31 PM) Daniel X:
add 15 points and it goes right to 55 area
(04:31 PM) nell6:
but the low was 1445 at 11:00
(04:31 PM) Daniel X:
ok Nell add 15 points to your #
(04:31 PM) nell6:
what am i missing?
(04:31 PM) nell6:
1460
(04:32 PM) johnl96:
go, nell, go
(04:32 PM) Daniel X:
ok and where did the market go after that turn around up side
(04:32 PM) TheBigD:
so the point is to stayy out of trades until we breach this zone one way or the other?
(04:32 PM) Daniel X:
yes stay out
(04:33 PM) Daniel X:
i added 15 points to 1440 because the was support and the target on the day
(04:33 PM) Daniel X:
so it went right to 55 and fell
(04:33 PM) johnl96:
if you're gonna say it tagged 1460, i'm just gonna have to hack your isp or something daniel
(04:33 PM) TheBigD:
thanks Daniel, will review this technique because I've been chopped, sliced, diced and ground into little pieces
(04:33 PM) raz_62:
huh it went to 73
(04:33 PM) Daniel X:
lol John
(04:33 PM) Daniel X:
no it did not
(04:34 PM) Daniel X:
it fell back down
(04:34 PM) johnl96:
review what technique? I still don't have a clue what he's talking about
(04:34 PM) Daniel X:
it fell and chopped till it broke out 55 to 60 area
(04:34 PM) raz_62:
didnt go to 73
(04:34 PM) raz_62:
73.5
(04:35 PM) tkay_1:
daniel, you still trading retro?
(04:36 PM) Daniel X:
oops wrong button lol
(04:36 PM) Daniel X:
ok got it?
(04:36 PM) johnl96:
I know you add 15 pts to something.
(04:36 PM) raz_62:
ok wehen we did break that level then what
(04:37 PM) Daniel X:
when we break out it has to stay out and hold it as suport
(04:37 PM) johnl96:
on the 2 min, my 11:04 bar has a low of 1144
(04:38 PM) Daniel X:
i went long at 56.50
(04:38 PM) johnl96:
+15 pts = 1159
(04:38 PM) Daniel X:
just above 55 which was the 1440 taget and where the bounce area occured
(04:39 PM) Daniel X:
that s ok John
(04:39 PM) johnl96:
where are you getting 1440?
(04:39 PM) Daniel X:
notice the market did nothing till that area was taken out
(04:39 PM) Daniel X:
John 1440 was the low target on the day
(04:40 PM) Daniel X:
just because we went slightly through it and stopped dead it shows me that the pit respected that low
(04:40 PM) johnl96:
ok, now I'm REALLY confused
(04:41 PM) Daniel X:
y?
(04:41 PM) johnl96:
what does 11:00 have to do with anything
(04:41 PM) Daniel X:
there are key time reversal periods all day
(04:42 PM) Daniel X:
John remember what u said about buying or selling the 10 min bar?
(04:43 PM) johnl96:
you had a proj lo of 1440 and it held, pretty much
(04:43 PM) Daniel X:
yes it di exactly
(04:44 PM) Daniel X:
the pit did not sell it either
(04:44 PM) johnl96:
they you projected the top of the range at 1455 (1440 plus 15)
(04:44 PM) Daniel X:
yes
(04:44 PM) johnl96:
when it broke the top of the range you went long
(04:44 PM) Daniel X:
yes
(04:45 PM) Daniel X:
but not on the 1rst breakout
(04:45 PM) johnl96:
ok, now all we need to know is where the 1440 came from
(04:45 PM) Daniel X:
it had to go through come back and hold support then i weny long at 56.50
(04:45 PM) johnl96:
(raz, nell, you grab him from behind and I'll beat it out of him)
(04:45 PM) Daniel X:
lol
(04:46 PM) Daniel X:
every one pretty much had the 40 as a target
(04:46 PM) ppusa:
where was google today?
(04:46 PM) johnl96:
ok, like any other break of resist
(04:46 PM) Daniel X:
right
(04:47 PM) johnl96:
ok
(04:47 PM) Daniel X:
and i held it up to a test of 70 and moved my stop just under 65 support
(04:49 PM) nell6:
so you took 18pts out of that trade?
(04:49 PM) Daniel X:
and as you now know..when we fell back into the chop zone we really went no where
(04:50 PM) Daniel X:
yes i cut 1/2 my pos @ 65 target
(04:50 PM) johnl96:
ok, so are these projected lows and highs and supp/res like the decision point numbers and stuff George Angell teaches?
(04:50 PM) Daniel X:
and moved stop to 64.50 an the rest
(04:50 PM) Daniel X:
don't know him
(04:51 PM) Daniel X:
probably though..u tell me
(04:51 PM) johnl96:
I think Rose posts his numbers in dacharts
(04:51 PM) Daniel X:
oh ok thats why we have mathcing #s
(04:52 PM) johnl96:
he teaches something called LSS...long, sell, sell short or something
(04:52 PM) Daniel X:
but now about your 10 min buy sell opening trade
(04:52 PM) TheBigD:
OK Daniel, I get it...but it has nothing to do with smax and wouldn't have helped if you were trying to trade smax
(04:52 PM) Daniel X:
yes it does TBO
(04:52 PM) Daniel X:
Smax confirms the move
(04:53 PM) Daniel X:
it has to
(04:53 PM) Daniel X:
John pointed out something really interesting this am
(04:54 PM) TheBigD:
but at the second breakout at 1:18 ESTsmax was short
(04:54 PM) Daniel X:
yes and the entry was?
(04:55 PM) TheBigD:
make it 1:09
(04:55 PM) nell6:
Can someone please spare some time to explain the nuances of SMAX to me in a private room ??
(04:55 PM) TheBigD:
1462.50 at 12:57
(04:56 PM) scorp:
did anyone follow smax today?
(04:56 PM) scorp:
was there a point total?
(04:57 PM) TheBigD:
smax didn't go long until 1466 at 1:18
(04:57 PM) Daniel X:
long no dip buy
(04:57 PM) Daniel X:
long dip buy
(04:57 PM) TheBigD:
sorry?
(04:57 PM) Daniel X:
after holding a breaking through the chop zone with support
(04:58 PM) Daniel X:
after it came out of the 40 to 55 chop area there was no way i was going short
(04:58 PM) Daniel X:
whae it held support
(04:59 PM) Daniel X:
when
(04:59 PM) Daniel X:
it bounced right off of 56 like mad
(05:00 PM) Daniel X:
you see it?
(05:00 PM) Daniel X:
i barely had a chance to get in
(05:01 PM) TheBigD:
I will study this some more, unfortunately have to go now
(05:01 PM) Daniel X:
kewl
(05:01 PM) Daniel X:
now John
(05:01 PM) TheBigD:
thanks for the insight :)
(05:02 PM) Daniel X:
its just something to protect us going into lunch
(05:02 PM) johnl96:
ok, I'm here Daniel
(05:02 PM) Daniel X:
ok John
(05:02 PM) Daniel X:

(05:02 PM) johnl96:
yes
(05:02 PM) nell6:

(05:02 PM) Daniel X:

(05:02 PM) Daniel X:

(05:02 PM) Daniel X:
lol
(05:03 PM) johnl96:
nell, can we get thru this globex thing first?

(05:03 PM) johnl96:

(05:03 PM) nell6:

(05:03 PM) Daniel X:

(05:03 PM) Daniel X:

(05:04 PM) Daniel X:
if you buy or sell the second bar which is youe 10 min price
(05:04 PM) Daniel X:
what happens?
(05:04 PM) johnl96:
thanks nell, sorry, didn't mean to sound rude
(05:04 PM) nell6:
its okay i am watching this too
(05:05 PM) johnl96:
well, looks to me, today at least, if you shorted the low of the 2nd bar you had a nice ride down
(05:05 PM) Daniel X:
every time you buy/sell the 10 min high low what happens?
(05:06 PM) Daniel X:
look back over a few days
(05:06 PM) Daniel X:
please
(05:06 PM) Daniel X:
u need to
(05:06 PM) johnl96:
do I need to be looking at the globex for something?
(05:07 PM) nell6:
every 10min or just the mornings?
(05:07 PM) nell6:
i.e the first
(05:08 PM) johnl96:
ok, howza bout monday?
(05:09 PM) johnl96:
oh, wait, are you talking about that being a range? Buy above it, short below it?
(05:09 PM) johnl96:
where'd he go?
(05:09 PM) mr_toad:
anybody seen Thoff here today?
(05:10 PM) johnl96:
yeah, for a little while
(05:10 PM) Daniel X:

(05:10 PM) Daniel X:
sorry bout that
(05:10 PM) mr_toad:
ok...will check in tomorrow to see if his here
(05:10 PM) nell6:
on tuesday you get stopped out
(05:10 PM) Daniel X:
yes the trade is sell/buy the range breakout ...
(05:11 PM) johnl96:
ok, so it really doesn't have anything to do with globex
(05:11 PM) Daniel X:
but don't forget it has to be on the way to the gap fill
(05:11 PM) nell6:
on monday depending on your stop you may get a very good ride down
(05:11 PM) Daniel X:
not counter
(05:11 PM) johnl96:
to what?
(05:12 PM) Daniel X:
its a gap trade
(05:12 PM) Daniel X:
don't go against the gap on that trade
(05:12 PM) johnl96:
so you wouldn't have bought the top on monday because you're thinking it's just looking to fill the gap?
(05:13 PM) Daniel X:
exactly
(05:13 PM) Daniel X:
you got
(05:13 PM) Daniel X:
it
(05:14 PM) nell6:
how about today ?
(05:14 PM) Daniel X:
i would not have noticed it on the 10 min if you hadn't mentioned it...i mostly use the 5 min
(05:14 PM) johnl96:
ok, so on Monday you put a sell stop just below the range and they went out and played 18 holes and covered at close?
(05:14 PM) Daniel X:
lol
(05:15 PM) Daniel X:
Monday i shorted 22 covered 11
(05:15 PM) Daniel X:
on the swing
(05:16 PM) Daniel X:
went to 5 but hey i wanted the bottom
(05:16 PM) Daniel X:
so resold and was pissed too!!
(05:17 PM) johnl96:
ok, got it
(05:17 PM) johnl96:
nell asked about today
(05:17 PM) johnl96:
i'm guessing when it filled the gap and kept going down something else kicked in
(05:17 PM) Daniel X:
if you look over the last week it was the same trade every am
(05:17 PM) Daniel X:
yes
(05:18 PM) johnl96:
not today
(05:18 PM) Daniel X:
i cover at the gap fill usually
(05:18 PM) Daniel X:
and see if i can hold if we're at a critical #
(05:19 PM) Daniel X:
what not today?
(05:19 PM) Daniel X:
John?
(05:19 PM) johnl96:
today it went down, filled the gap and kept going
(05:20 PM) johnl96:
doew
(05:20 PM) johnl96:
down
(05:20 PM) nell6:
so the nq gaps down...
(05:20 PM) nell6:
you then short the break of the first 10min bar ?
(05:21 PM) Daniel X:
yes i cut 1/2 at he gap fill and the rest just above the 40 target
(05:21 PM) blurr123:
hello
(05:22 PM) blurr123:
how many points did smax get today?
(05:22 PM) Daniel X:
Nell you have to short or go long in the direction of the gap fill
(05:22 PM) Daniel X:
off that 10 min bar
(05:22 PM) Daniel X:
never against ti
(05:22 PM) nell6:
I am lost then
(05:22 PM) Daniel X:
it
(05:23 PM) Daniel X:
y?
(05:23 PM) johnl96:
me too
(05:23 PM) nell6:
as to why you went short on monday 02/4
(05:23 PM) Daniel X:
ok look i'll expalin
(05:23 PM) Daniel X:
i went short on monday because we gapped up
(05:23 PM) johnl96:
are you saying the fact that the 10 min bar being down bar has something to do with it?
(05:24 PM) Daniel X:
we usually fill the gaps right?
(05:24 PM) Daniel X:
no no just the fact that gap get filled
(05:24 PM) nell6:
on my chart of the NQ we gapped down
(05:24 PM) johnl96:
monday gapped down
(05:25 PM) Daniel X:
yes and the entry long was?
(05:25 PM) johnl96:
above friday's close?
(05:26 PM) johnl96:
which was never hit
(05:26 PM) Daniel X:
no the entry on your 10 min is 28.50 lomg right to fill the gap
(05:26 PM) Daniel X:
u cut the trade at the gap fill
(05:26 PM) Daniel X:
but
(05:27 PM) Daniel X:
u get a few points
(05:27 PM) Daniel X:
and it never takes out fridays low
(05:27 PM) Daniel X:
sso i sell the bottom of the 10 min range
(05:28 PM) johnl96:
you're looking at the nq, right?
(05:28 PM) Daniel X:
lol yes
(05:28 PM) nell6:
but it didn't go up on monday
(05:28 PM) nell6:
it went all the way down
(05:28 PM) Daniel X:
its a gap scalp trade
(05:28 PM) Daniel X:

(05:31 PM) Daniel X:
10 min
(05:31 PM) pete77_1:
Dan I have been watching, appreciate the advice. What sort of stop do you use for this opening trade?
(05:31 PM) Daniel X:
5 point always
(05:32 PM) Daniel X:
initial every trade
(05:32 PM) Daniel X:
timing is crucial
(05:33 PM) johnl96:
ok, so now I'm up $100 and I'm not finished with my first cup of coffee yet
(05:33 PM) Daniel X:
u gotta know the suport res 3s on open ....lol
(05:33 PM) Daniel X:

(05:33 PM) Daniel X:

(05:36 PM) Daniel X:
you're filled at 21.50 and bounces to 25 and my order goes in
(05:37 PM) Daniel X:
sorry you not filled on the first timeat 21.50 bounces them my order goes in
(05:38 PM) Daniel X:
i forgot to put the "not" in
(05:39 PM) Daniel X:
we could not even take out or stay above the opening range low
(05:39 PM) Daniel X:
i put the 21.50 in on the failure
(05:40 PM) Daniel X:
and got positive fill
(05:40 PM) Daniel X:
22
(05:41 PM) Daniel X:
ok kewl?
(05:41 PM) johnl96:
I think I have it
(05:41 PM) Daniel X:
hope so
(05:41 PM) nell6:
yes i think i got it
(05:41 PM) Daniel X:
try it on paper for a little till you do
(05:41 PM) nell6:
i like the little twist
(05:42 PM) Daniel X:
or back test it
(05:42 PM) Daniel X:
lol
(05:42 PM) Daniel X:
i said to myself....there has to be a way to trdae the gap fills without fear
(05:42 PM) nell6:
is this it
(05:43 PM) Daniel X:
and i cannot find anything easier...yet!
(05:43 PM) Daniel X:
it helps when you know the key #s
(05:44 PM) johnl96:
I imagine it would
(05:45 PM) nell6:
so what are the key numbers
(05:45 PM) Daniel X:
lol
(05:45 PM) johnl96:
knew that was coming
(05:46 PM) nell6:
lol
(05:46 PM) Daniel X:
they're #s that the market trades around the previous day
(05:46 PM) nell6:
S/R ?
(05:46 PM) johnl96:
when you talk r3 and stuff, you're talking standard pivot point stuff right?
(05:46 PM) Daniel X:
res/sup trouble areas
(05:46 PM) Daniel X:
yes
(05:46 PM) Daniel X:
sorta
(05:46 PM) Daniel X:
