Hi....i'm a fairly new trader (been trading about a month and half or two) I do pretty well recognizing patterns during the day (that is most of the time after 10:00 EST or so) but how to buy on the open is beyond me. I am constantly watching as the markets morning move just doesn't run out of gas and I'm stuck on the sidelines waiting for a bull flag a triangle anything. I've been to several chat rooms where people are popping off trades starting at 9:30 on the dot! I can recognize patterns intraday, but what patterns you guys are looking at in the morning (i'm guessing there really aren't many) are beyond me. I'm not asking for your bread and butter strategies...just if you'd point me in the right direction or tell me what i should do differently...I'd really appreciate it. THANKS!!!
