    22 Dec US sessioin

    Asian and Eur session - no signal except XBT.

    longed copper @ 910pm

    XBT signal :
    short @ 923am
    reversal up @ 1204pm (you probably get few ticks).
    short @ 223pm
    still don't like like XBT spikey chart. It is spiky because very few people trading xbt.
    BTC is worse !

    US session might be dead. anyway better be alert.
    Luckily I already plan for vacation next whole week.

    cont ...

    profit : +ve. good

    russell shorted @1020pm
    profit : +ve. good.

    another BTC short signal @900pm.
    seems like it is aiming for 10000.
    anyway will top up account before end this year, and start trading btc starting 2 Jan 2018.
    now it is at 11900. so still very very long way to go to reach say 10.
    ie opportunity is humongous.

    2 Jan Asian session

    A fresh new year. Again there are tons of opportunity out there.
    Surgeon, engineer, lawyer ... need to be study and work very hard.
    They need to think in complex manner in this complex world to survive.
    For day trader, it is the reverse.
    The simplier the mind, the more money we earn.

    Day trading will overflow your cup.
    So get the biggest biggest cup possible.

    Asian index futures - day range has been rather healthy for the past few weeks.
    Last Fri US index futures went down alot. so asian index futures will gap down.
    after that, will asian index futures go up/down/sideway? no idea.
    aud, jpy - day range has been rather pathetic.
    gold - day range started to be healthy.
    copper, natural gas - healthy day range.
    bitcoin- day range getting worse. volume pathetic. also not worth taking risk trading it as leverage is very poor.

    hmmm. what is happening to crude oil? must monitor.
    is it a laggard?

    signal missed: china A50. well. can't possibly catch every single signal.
    anyway, I had longed Hangseng.

    profit : +ve. good

    my long eurex btp
    profit : +ve. also good

    cattle and hog - day range has been pathetic.
    soya bean - day range has been pathetic.
    I am sure corn, soya oil, soya meal, wheat day range would be worse.
    harvest season over?
    US index futures - yesterday long blue candle. today it might sleep. anyway better be alert.
    I see that heating oil and RB gasoline are up. I got tendency not to trade these.

    bitcoin - day range getting smaller at 870 points. this is untradable unless we trade options. no more excitement? novelty worn out already?

    tonight 3am FOMC meeting minutes.
    sigh ... why must I wake up in the middle of the night trading FOMC news?

    4 Jan Asian session

    The greater the number of lots you trade,
    the longer you hold to stretch target profit,
    the more money you earn.
    Don't be afraid of earning too much money.
    Because you can easily donate the money to help the unfortunate.
    Don't hold on to it till your last breathe.

    OK. shorted gold just now. profit 50 ticks / lot

    Asian index futures appear not to move except for taiwan index futures.
