Trading strategy for Mon-Fri Sept 17-21 Special daytrading strategy notes: available at http://188.8.131.52/gapopen.htm Hi all, here's my thoughts re playing gap trades long for this coming week. After careful consideration, I must concur with the sentiment that shorting in the current market is morally wrong, so I will not do this, rather waiting instead for bounces as they may occur this coming week. Shorting and donating a part to charity doesn't seem right/enough, I am encouraging all of us to trade long if and when the signals present themselves. As traders, I would like to see us do our part to rebuild America's financial and consumer confidence. For what it's worth, I have documented my thoughts on how I will be trading this coming week, with a chart pattern example, I hope the ideas are useful for all of you: I believe the market will be volatile and challenging, and caution folks that this should be for experienced traders only, the next week on wall street. fwiw, I plan on donating a lot to the relief agencies and others in the weeks ahead, I'm too old (37) for active / reserve duty, so at least I can help financially. Best wishes traders, Ken http://184.108.40.206/gapopen.htm p.s. sorry if my 'shoot osama' game page offends some, most of the response (and 25686+ hits in 48 hours) has been positive. like o'reilly, I'm a straight shooter. Semper fi.
