    how do you define a swing trade? Overnight? Weekly?

    That's the only thing that I can see, but with Naz breaking out and MACD confirming extremely bullish set up I doubt you'll see a top here.

    Swing trades are those that are intended to be held overnight--perhaps multiple nights and sometimes weeks. It depends on what the market does.

    You came within 2 points getting stopped yesterday, and now the beneficiary of fortuitous if not an outright ridiculous PA.

    I don't understand why you don't get out?

    Will you take a retrace all way back up?

    ES dropped 14 pts in a half hour. thats a GIFT, imo. i would have taken it. don't care what i called it "swing" "daytrade" or a scalp :)

    I understand following your rulz. However, the rulz must also take into account events that are extremely rare, and adjust for them.

    That's where the human trader steps in, imo

    got to know when to break the rulz

    (not trying to tell you how trade, just trying to understand)
