For all you newbieâs and more experienced traders who wish to improve their performance, here is what I suggest. Forget trying to get someone else to teach you how to trade because chances are they don't know themselves and even if they do, their style may not work for you. Here is what you need to do. Print the chart of the market that you trade and mark where you should have entered and exited that market and then jot down all the data/evidence that was available at that time that would have indicated that was the correct course of action. Here is my chart of ES for June 19. Ideally I would have entered short at 10:40 Chicago time at 920. The evidence that was available to me at that time was: a) at 9:10 price formed a lower low and moved further down than it had been able to all morning. b) Price moved back up but was unable to make a higher high, instead price formed a lower high at around 10:00 c) Price is moving down off of the lower high and the MACD has crossed down below the zero line.
