    Recipe:

    Cofee
    Sugar, lots of sugar
    Peanut butter
    Cookies and Vodka optional
    (2) Altoids

    Optional use for Altoids:

    • eat two Altoids
    • lick your lips
    • SURVIVAL substitute when the glue on your rolling papers malfunctions
    @vanzandt made the call this morning: buy at the open because you are an American and won't let some fat fuck spook us!

    Tell me again how trading is unemotional! I would love to see an algo do that!

    Coulda, woulda, shoulda:

    • certain days pure momentum plays are the way to go
    • still attempting to find out how to recognize those days

    2 + 2 =:
    • crumb/key level - yesterday's close
    • expansion candles with small wicks on the 60'
    • how did price REACT at tgis KEY level?
    • 10:00 ascending triangle on the 5'
    • 11:00 pause on the 5'
    • breakouts
    Putting it together:
    • The market is not psychological.
    • It is HIGHLY emotional
    • FEAR is an emotion
    • Traders make emotional decisions
    • I must not fear my emotions.
    • I must embrace them.
    • I was not afraid of nuclear war.
    • I was afraid to make the trade.

    You better be darn afraid of nuclear war, sir. If you mean that you are not afraid that we will GO to nuclear war, meaning that you do not think it will happen, then that is different.

    How is your account balance, after considering all the broker and exchange fees?

    Hello, yes?

    • yesterday's expansion bar was on low volume
    • downtrend resistance on the daily
    • 5' is messy (looking for ascending triangles or tight flags at the top, coinciding with the highs of the 1st 30' bar (not shown).
    For now, I can't see going long.
