You need to free your mind. Stop focusing on the front month. You are trading futures, so look into the FUTURE. I am a bit down on my technique this current cycle, because I should be scaling into September, not March. Oops. I may take a hit on this current swing, but we shall see. The foundation is still there for a long outlook. Today was a great example though of looking for certain profit points, in NQ. The thing has a 90 point range. Surely when that 90-point range was hit, going long for 20 points would yield profit, yes? I was long at top of range unfortunately for today because I have a different metric in mind, not an intra-day scale of things, but longer-term, so I sit on hands and suffer for a bit. If I can get out of the March contracts with profit I will be shifting my attention to Sep and Dec contracts, because I trade the FUTURE! Wheee!
