My last journal wasn't very thorough, this one I intend to make extremely thorough and detailed. If someone can glean something from it, that's awesome, but I don't intend to give away any secrets really, maybe here and there. I tend to trade off of a few specific indicators and timeframes. My analysis is completely technical and sentimental. My trading goals has always been to join "them" on the ups and downs, whoever "they" are. When "they" don't seem like they know where they are going I stay out and wait for this mysterious "they" to decide where they want to go. This is all simulation trading, by the way. I know this entry isn't exactly high probability or ideal, but the trend already took a small correction, so I don't think I'll have a great buying opportunity until it's too late. I'm very bearish right now, and I normally don't let my (elementary) ideas of the market affect my trading but with the markets as they are, I wanted to put a trade on this trend ASAP. Right now I am short TF @ $665.70 My mental stop is somewhere around $669 I don't set targets, I let the market take it's course, and liquidate my positions based on TA not upon my "fear or greed".
