Previously I wrote of temporary insanity in a market.
At the time I used the USDJPY FOREX pair as an example.
Had I waited two days to write that article, I would have had another, perhaps even better, example of temporary insanity in a market. I am referring to the E-Mini S&P futures contract.
Many years ago I attended law school for one year. Never really wanted to be lawyer, but had been told by many that first year law school was as good as an MBA for a person interested in pursuing a career in private business. So I opted for the first year law school approach, even […]
I have not been well the last several days. That usually keeps me relatively quiet, and I am sure that is just fine with many – certainly including my dear wife. But I am feeling better now, so it’s time to “let ‘er rip”!
I was born and raised in the country. Common sense was […]
The chart shown in Figure 1 is the E-mini plotted at 20,000 ticks per bar and covering from January7, 2014 to the present. This period has been pretty good for short term trading – the daily movement in price has been from 40 ticks to more than 80 ticks during this period.

Today I want to discuss the subject of risk – specifically the general risk of all short term trading. What I mean is this. There is a certain risk that the market will move against your position. Further, the potential […]
I am a short term trader technical trader. What I mean by that is that my entire trading method and system is based on technical analysis; with entry and exit are based on technical analysis. However, I readily admit that fundamentals are important in any market – in fact I will readily admit that fundamentals […]
The E-mini is currently trading in near all-time high ranges. This has been a difficult time for my trading method as I rely heavily on past data to locate specific values for short term trading support and resistance.
My trading method depends heavily on these support and resistance values (SRVs) and I can tell you […]
My New Year’s resolution for this year is a bit different; no dieting, no cutting back on the drinking, or cussing – or any other of those normal human faults. Instead I am going to try to become more involved politically – because I fear for the fate of my country.
