Blog - 8/25/2010

My life has become crazy again. Work is very busy. My personal life is a little crazy and now I have a health issue to deal with. I have nearly stopped trading and the markets are just not fun right now.
-
Instead of posting the Big Mouth Stocks and my once in a blue moon trade, I am going to take a break from blogging. I am expect I will be back later in September. To my few regular readers, good luck trading and I will be back.

Friday Big Mouth Stocks - 8/20/2010


CREE was okay but messy. The others got you no where. The Big Mouth Stocks have turned much harder to play recently. There are none for Monday. During the summer they are usually hard to play.

Not bad after a big trend up day - these were somewhat easy.

Crap Crap Crap Crap Crap 8/2/2010

My brain and my system that I created to trade the Dow Futures seems to look a lot better on the Crude Oil Futures. I have no reason why. A long time ago I create a simple system and while I was trying to test it, the way the Globex market reported YM trades changed. My system no longer worked and I could not figure it out and I did not want to bend it to make it fit.
-
One day I started looking at the Crude and thinking it might work here. It looks promising.
-
Now if I could only over come my market stupidity (aka emotions) , I might make some money. Details on the chart.
