Greetings, I will be using this journal to document my trades and economic/social thoughts on elitetrader. My instruments of choice are the YM, ES, QM, Gold and the occasional stock pick. Basically, the DJIA, S&P500, oil, and the yellow metal. I am primarily a swing trader who positions sizes to be able to scale into positions up to 3 times as exact entry timing is impossible. I am also trading with such a size to permit taking heavy heat on positions that the system says are correct despite price noise. However, with this said, I am not into self destruction and will bail out of positions prior to meltdown. I will not be trading every day, and I will not be revealing my entry criteria--- as you know, I don't put any creedence in technical analysis, charts, gurus, or the reality of trends helping with the here and now of entry. I'll post when/if entry points are discovered and/or entered and exits made. I'll also try to interject a bit of economic/political/social news to keep things interesting. I look forward to sharing my ideas with elite. Stay tuned for the first entry levels, stock picks to be posted as they develop. Flat for now.
