Where are we going next? I have no idea … but what I have learned over the years is to never try to catch a falling knife …

I find it interesting when I am in the TST Energy Room how many different opinions come in … it is all clutter to the mind and it will leave you standing confused and brusied to listen to it all. What I know from my experience is this … you MUST be CONFIDENT in your trading signals and take them.

I found a nice trading signal short today and it continued to advance down during the trading session. I thought I would be able to carry the short trade d0wn to the S2 level today, but it wasn’t meant to be … but I still earned 52 ticks on the short and only gave back 8 ticks to the market on my trading session.

In time, I find that you simply have to say … “That’s Fascinating” when you are trading. The market will do things you thought it would do when you are done on your trading day. And it will do things you will say I am glad I am not in there any longer just as often.

“That’s Fascinating!” – Jim Rohn

The story goes like this … why doesn’t a person do something the way you want them to do it … or why is there so much traffic at rush hour and why am I always stuck in it. Well, there are things out of our control and the quicker you can come to this same conclusion the better off you will be as a day trader. Mr. Rohn used to say it’s just the birds … there is a lot of wisdom in that saying.

Simply put … you can’t control much of anything in life … but what you can do is control your entry and exit point in a trade. You should know this before you enter the trade. KNOW your out point before you even take the trade on!!

So take the money and run is a good saying to remember … it goes back to Trading Rule #3 … Take Profits on the Ride!!!

 

Good Trading,

P.S. I finished the trading day up plus 44 ticks. I attempted to short the market, but my timing was off and took an 8 tick hit.
