  1. I am not sure how useful it is at the end of the day to post trades as though they really happened well after the fact.

    Long ES at 2496
    Profit 10 handles.

    I think you do know exactly how useful after-the-fact calls are.

    profit : negative 8 ticks / lot

    Whole Market rather lethargic.
    MSCI Taiwan rather dead.
    So will stop trading.
    Now going for exercise.
    What a great life after retiring from full time trading.

    28 Sept Thurs European premarket analysis

    euro-BTP, bund went down significantly yesterday. today it might continue to go down, or remain still.
    DAX, crude oil, soya have been sleeping many days already. it will wake up soon.
    us $ (eurusd, gbpusd, gold, jpyusd, audusd ) have been up for few days already. soon it needs to rest.
    copper has been ranging in tight range.
    natural gas. yesterday moved up significantly perhaps big boys buying it before tonight EIA report.

    perhaps I will skip trading India CNX nifty today since yesterday it has very long red candle.
    Most likely today Nifty will take a nap.
    So I'd better take a nap too.

    28 Sept Thu European session

    shorted gold @1284.0, 120pm. This trade is risky as gold has been down for 2 days already.
    so taking small position.

    shorted CNX Nifty @ 9771, 148pm

    gold profit : 14 ticks only. I realised this is late entry. There was an earlier signal at 1044am this morning.

    CNY Nifty. profit negative 10 points. sigh ... itchy finger. most likely Nifty will take a nap today.

    28 sept Thu US premarket analysis

    US$ (eurusd gbpusd gold jpyusd audusd) has been strengthening. It seems to have no more momentum.

    crude oil moved at 4.30pm today. missed this signal.
    So I guess I will have to wait for 2 to 3 days as historically crude oil needs to sleep for 2 to 3 days.

    Heating oil / RBOB gasoline - move quite in tandem with crude oil

    US index futures. yesterday long green candle. today it might decide to sleep.

    Natural gas. yesterday long green candle. EIA news at 1030pm.
    it might continue to go up, reverse down significantly, or sleep.

    I see that copper is going up since 2pm today but then based on big picture, it is ranging. trying to decode this pattern.

    live cattle / lean hog. not much movement lately or rather movement has been rather jerky. perhaps spreaders already spreaded what they wanted to spread.

    28 sept thurs US session

    longed Heating oil 18406, 912pm.
    not taking big position as I missed one signal at 455pm

    profit : zero. flatten position. not worth the risk. entry entry very important.

    ok. calling it a day. catching first signal extremely important.
    if not, very difficult to profit from the market.

    29 Sept morning pre market analysis

    Asian index futures appears to form close wedge.
    us$ which went up has no more momentum and showing sign of reversal.

    crude oil, heating oil, RB gasoline correlation getting closer.

    Overall it appears market is sleeping but signal might come out of no where.
    so be calm and alert.
