  1. Did you make or lose money today, Monday, Sept. 29, 2008 when the $700B bailout package got voted down?
  2. You need the option, sat on hands. Anyone that traded today likes gambling, and doesn't care about trading for a living. These are the days when you watch and wait for the bargains that are coming very soon. Keep your powder dry and you will soon have some opportunities of a lifetime given to you.
  3. Currencies were friggen fantastic today. My man Chood got me into buying yen a few days back and it's been magnificent.

    I edited the poll for "sat on hands". I hope the OP has no issue with that. If he does, I will put it back.
  4. Cash.

    Went long just before the close (swing trading).
  5. What are futures showing? I don't trust my quotes anymore unless it's FX.
  6. I agree. I sat here for almost 10 hours without trading a single contract in ANY market. It wasn't fear. it was just a total lack of predictive ability.
  7. ES -0.50
    YM +13.00
    NQ -0.25
  8. cheers!
  9. bbqbbq


    short +3p in 3 seconds. (was moving stop to breakeven and couldnt even change target)

    and then i stopped for the day.

    figured it would be like a casino.
  10. I made one ES trade today(only 1 trade in total)...the trade lasted :42 seconds and netted $215.00...I'm very happy...it was at about 12:46PM Chicago time...(real trading and not simulator)
