Hello Traders,

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


Volatile session with average volume as some traders are still out.


Monthly unemployment report tomorrow! Be aware as this is a market moving event.
The gap open on Wednesday morning “needs to be filled” so we may see some more pressure down but over all I think the market is still strong so my output for swing or medium term trades is wait for lower prices to buy call options ( to “fill the gap” we need to see the market at 1425).
As far as day-trading, there are many ways and techniques to lose…and make money. I think the main factor for most daytraders is money management and discipline.



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.
