Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!


Busy morning tomorrow with some numbers out of Euro Zone and weekly unemployment here. All this will take place before the cash open ( see calendar below)


At the moment, stock index futures are a bit confusing to me….I am not getting any reading if we are about to make another leg up or if we are topping out….when that happens, one needs to wait on the sidelines.


The above refers to my “swing trading”, medium trading outlook. As far as day trading, each day has a different personality. Some days are within a range, two sided action, some days are more trend days and some days are just pure volatile. Not easy to asses what day you may have ahead when you start trading but keeping a trading journal can help you with that and much more.

In my journal I write what reports we had, market action to reports, market behavior. I also write down what mistakes I made and feelings/ emotions and much more. I promise you that keeping a trading journal will only help your trading. More on that topic in next few blogs.



Trading Futures, Options on Futures, and retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge, and financial resources. You may lose all or more of your initial investment. Opinions, market data, and recommendations are subject to change at any time.
