I saw the following cartoon at ZeroHedge.com – the link to it and more is below:
If there was no other reason to be a short term trader, the cartoon above visually depicts one that would be enough for me.
As you read the above cartoon from […]
A friend of mine and a fellow trader called me after my last post and, after wishing me a happy new year, asked why I make such a big deal about volume when my futures chart does not even include volume.
To his surprise, I had to tell him that my futures trading systems chart […]
I am not trading during the holidays. One reason is that volume, even for liquid markets like the E-Mini often goes flat. Such markets, as far as I am concerned, add an increased element of risk. Since trading has enough risk for my blood in normal markets, I just avoid markets when the liquidity drops […]
The Christmas Holiday season is coming at us and I will not be trading next week. When a holiday like Christmas falls in the middle of the week the markets are usually very thinly traded during that period.

Am I Alone?
Once upon a time, now long ago, I traded the precious metals markets – concentrating on Silver more often than not. The reason I chose silver was fundamental – not technical. Silver and gold had historically traded at a price ratio of about 16 to 1, gold to silver. Then that price […]
When Not to Trade
Often a losing trade is the result of simply trading at the wrong time. I have written much about when to trade and even some about when not to trade. Today I will stick to when not to trade.
I am going to strip away all the other technical indicators I […]
It is generally agreed that the markets are moved by the bears and the bulls doing battle – the war of the bears and the bulls. If markets are moved by a war, then traders must think like generals – with an army to command.
Short term traders must take it a step further and […]
