After years of trying to time market tops and bottoms for who knows what reason and failing consistently on it, I've decided to start doing the opposite today. Note tone may be humorous, but content is serious. I'm just bored. It started with the premarket hours as I was trying to time countertrend top. Even though I knew that the trend was likely up. It seem easier to me to try to bet on the top. Only my risk management sucked. Then I took a nap. I woke up and decided I'm going to stop doing that. At the open, I will make one trade when I see the signal. I will place my stop. Win Fail I don't care. Either the trade will work or it doesn't and I am done. Turns out the trade worked and I let the profit ride as far as it can go and I exited. $200 instant profit right away. Not bad. Would have been much better if I had gotten into the trend right from the start. But I was sleeping and I have a rule about sleep and not trading. At the least I try to obey it. But really bummed that the market was trending while I was asleep. I hate those days. When you know it'll go up but it goes up overnight and you miss it because you needed your sleep for the morning. I actually woke up at the middle of the night and saw the trend developing. Again, I have a rule about sleep and not trading so I didn't do anything. On my to do list, I need a system to compensate for these scenario. Trade with the Trend. Be Like a Leaf in the Wind. Go where the wind takes you. Be like a crocodile. Anyways, the profitable trade felt easy. Maybe it was just luck and favorable market conditions. So is trading this easy or am I missing somethings???
