You misunderestimate yourself.
Scalping lots of .25's today huh
What about "I don't scalp in 2018" do you not get, Massive Turdburger??
(Yeah. I know. But I'm not going to devote a second more' worth of brain output to this..... turdburger. I mean, really. )
I notice tremendous insight here on big days.
something tells me you lost money today
This is ET...everyone loses money,
The only thing Elite about this place is the website domain name title.
I doubt there are any true...ET, extraterrestrial traders in here.
C'monnnn turdburger! Can't you put me on Ignore, like you *claim* to do so readily and often to everyone else on this *social* platform?
Purty purty please?
Now I know you lost money. Big time.
"Back in the day".....
With a 3pt-5pt ATR since 5am, and with plenty of 'hair'/wicks on those rangy candles, I can recall making a day's income before cash open on days like this.
This past weekend, I looked around a little bit, to put a sub-Account together for tick-scalping. I'm not a fad/latest-thing sort-of guy -- I'm more on the Late Adopter scale of things, really -- but I think this is vol of a substantial kind. A "stick around!" kind. Grist for scalpers kind.
Given that I've nibbled here and there over the past few years, and promptly lost $$, IB's current ES margin is probably saving me money. ......... ,...
Grace & Skills today, everyone --
and if that don't work:
For so many years I traded ES and NQ off tick charts and eyes being dragged primarily looking at them, and I kept losing money, over trading, entering trade too early, exit winning trade too early, until one day I came to recognize that was like looking through MICROSCOPE; it was a turning point once started trading off minute chart, focusing on a few swings of the day, firing a few shots of the day. Taking the eyes off the microscope makes a big difference. Only align and take a final glimpse at the telescope - tick chart at trigger time.
