Hello Traders,

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


Markets are quite sensitive to news breaks, especially with the Syria situation.


I think the following holds true EVERY day and every trade but even more so when the markets are tense like they are with the Syria situation right now:


When you think you are are about to get into a trade, take a few extra seconds to answer yourself the following:

Where will I place a stop?

Do I have a first target profit?

If I get my first profit target, what do I do with the remaining of the trade?  Do I use a trailing stop?

Do I have a final target?

What is the trade size I will use?


I know that sometimes you have to trade with the flow and make decisions on the fly but the more often you will think these steps out and plan your trade, the better chances you have to follow your plan and stay disciplined.


In between a daily chart of the mini NASDAQ 100 for your review as I feel the NASDAQ 100 is the leader of the indices recently.


Many have asked me for the meaning of the diamonds, arrows, plus signs etc.

It is actually part of a trading methodology I came up with and plan to have a series of webinars in the next few weeks where I review my indicators, money mgmt concept and more but to give a brief explanation:


Red Diamond is possible sell if we can take out previous bar low.

Blue diamond= possible buy if we can takeout previous bar high.

Same applies for Blue/ red triangles AS LONG as we get what I call price confirmation.


The lines are either FIBONACCI retracement or extension. More details will be explained in the first webinar which will be next Wednesday and an invite will follow this Friday.
