Every once in a while you get a day when every single breakout you come across works. Those days are very rare. When you put on a trade you should always ask yourself, "what will make someone buy this after me?" If your answer is, "because it broke out and less supply exists above resistance" you are destined to fail. True, less supply may exist up there but someone still has to buy it. Think about it....a method of trading breakouts is based on someone paying a higher price than you at an already elavated price. What is the probability of that? It's not zero for sure but it's not near 90% or 80%, or perhaps even 70%. Buying a breakout AFTER the market has run a bit is a poor trading method. Add a random (the market is both random and technical), wipsaw element to the market and you have a recipe for disaster. Your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd attempt at catching that breakout will give you nothing but losses until the 4th one works when you have given up. Sound familiar? Are buyers more likely to buy after the market has fallen some? Yes. Can't the market fall some "more?" Of course. The key to trading futures - at least one of the keys - is to buy the market when prices have fallen to extreme levels or sell the market when prices have risen to extreme levels. Naturally you don't want to do this when the Fed cuts or hints about cutting rates. Never fight the Fed! And never trade breakouts. If you want to succeed in this market you have to come up with something a little more sophisticated than, "I need someone to pay a higher price for me to win." Buy down, sell up!
