Plan your trade, trade your plan. Stay focused and ONLY try to day-trade when you are focused. Remember to stay disciplined and know that no one trade or trading day will determine your trading fate.

On a different note, below is a daily chart of the Mini Dow Jones. I got a red diamond ahead of tomorrows session. For me, that means that ‘the futures market is possibly over bought ‘. The way I like to play this set up is that if we break below 10550, we have a chance for a stronger move down. On the other hand, if we can keep above it, we may see 10720 soon.
Daily chart of Mini Dow Jones futures contract for your review below with possible Elliot Wave scenarios. The 82 reading suggest the current uptrend is strong. If the 3rd wave we are in will continue than next target will be 10723. If the market pulls back first to possible 4th wave, support is at 10490. Of course, when its all said and done what matters most is price action and not what we want or hope the market will do.
