Some Recent Days

The markets have continued their increased volatility in 2019 and that has meant much better days continuing for us!

Here are recent sessions in June 2019:

July started off HOT with a great Add-On Day:

July 1:  We started the day in my LIVE! Trading Room with a Game Plan calling for price in the stock indexes — the E-Mini S&P (ES) and the E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) especially — to re-test the highs and make new highs.  They tried several times, as you can see, but couldn’t follow-through.  When sellers started coming in, market structure started to support potential selling and when price action also supported selling, we went straight to Plan B and became sellers — grabbing a super Add-On Day!

* * * * * * * * * *

July 2:  Once again the markets proved a little more difficult than we like in my LIVE! Trading Room, with the Game Plan calling for a pull-back and a re-test of the highs — which we got, but not everyone caught it.  That was the full Daily Profit Target in less than 10-minutes.  However, we kept going since the E-Mini S&P (ES) was just ping-pong whipping and the E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) was also whipping and Crude Oil (CL) was moving straight down.  When market structure and price action both supported a sell in the NASDAQ, we scalped the Daily Profit Target a second time and stopped to enjoy the day trader’s lifestyle and the rest of our day!

July 3:  It’s nice to cap-off a short week — especially into a holiday — with the FULL Daily Profit Target from day trading the stock indexes, E-mini S&P (ES), E-mini NASDAQ (NQ), E-Mini Russell (RTY ) and Crude Oil (CL) in my LIVE! Trading RoomWe took what the market wanted to give — which we try to do every day — but which today were scalps.  It only takes ONE (1) good trade and we grabbed ours to start our holiday before 10:00 a.m. the day before!

July 8:  Everything we saw in the Top-Down Analysis was telling us the markets wanted to go farther down and our Game Plan was to be sellers. We caught the E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) and the E-Mini S&P (ES) right after the 9:30 Open, as they started down harder than anticipated . . and we got nice winners in both markets for the Daily Profit Target PLUS! or maybe even a small Add-On Day.

* * * * * * * * * *

July 9:  We had a two-part Game Plan but when the Stock Indexes opened so strongly, we bought a break of the green S-R Level in the E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) and grabbed the FULL Daily Profit Target quickly — before price started chopping or whipping. We couldn’t get a fill in the E-Mini S&P and, since I don’t like to “chase” price, we just let that one go . . . but still got the FULL Daily Profit Target in less than 10-minutes.

* * * * * * * * * *

July 10:  We were buyers from the 9:30 Open because FED Chairman Powell made some ultra-dovish remarks at a breakfast meeting well before the 9:30 Open and the Stock Indexes shot up.  After they topped-out, you could only take counter-trend sells on a strong up-day or wait for the expected deep retracement (which I told Members about) — but which would have kept you off the golf course. LOL!

* * * * * * * * * *

July 11:  Even though we were front-run by the HFTs in the E-Mini S&P (ES), we had the FULL Daily Profit Target in the E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) right at the 9:30 Open but price whipped us out of an excellent Entry before turning to the Profit Target. That happens. So we kept going. We took a long break in the LIVE! Trading Room for FED Chairman Powell’s Congressional “testimony” and came back and waited for market structure and price action to scream “SELL!” and we did in the ES. There was a companion trade available in the NASDAQ but not the same market structure so it wasn’t an official call.

* * * * * * * * * *

July 12:  With the Stock Indexes pretty much dead and stuck in either WHIP or UGLY WHIP, we turned our attention to Crude Oil and caught a great Entry and sat through 4-5 candles of dead whip until price turned down fast-and-hard just like I told members of the LIVE! Trading Room to expect. It came right back but we had milked that one for a solid 20-ticks and the FULL Daily Profit Target.

* * * * * * * * * *

July 16:  Conditions were tough as we day traded the stock indexes — mostly the E-Mini S&P (ES) and E-Mini NASDAQ(NQ) — and Crude Oil (CL).  After price bounced off support, but wouldn’t go higher, I got us trapped short, going with market structure and price action, when the HFTs started chopping price up.  So we took a small, intentional loss an avoided the bigger, full stop.  We tried a couple more times but price just wouldn’t follow-through.  I was able to get us into a little counter-trend scalp buy that wouldn’t go to the Profit Target but got us out-of-a-hole and gave a little lunch money.  Sometimes that’s the best you can do — walk away unhurt.

* * * * * * * * * *

July 17:  Today was a bit easier.  I told LIVE! Trading Room Members in the daily Top-Down Analysis the stock indexes — especially the E-Mini S&P (ES) and E-Mini NASDAQ (NQ) — were set to push up and form the top of a trading range and then move lower.  We sold near the top of what developed into that range — AS it developed — and grabbed the FULL Daily Profit Target in less than 5-minutes.  Members then had the rest of their day to enjoy . . . having finished their “work” quickly today.

Please understand that I try very hard to be different and so I don’t create and publish marketing videos every day/week or month we enjoy success.  I only make them when I think there’s something that will help new or struggling traders.  However, even though my style and approach in the LIVE! Trading Room has stayed the same, here were some days in December I put together as a special Holiday Trading Series as a gift for those who watch my YouTube Channel and they’re still relevant:
