I Can Help with the E-mini, Spookywill

I trade the E-min and make money every day. I do some swing trading, and I regularly trade the NASDAQ, Copper Notes and Bonds. I am an auction market trader and I use a combination of CBOT Market Profile, volume at price analysis, and pattern recognition techniques.

I have been a screen trader for thiry years and have tried everythig. What I have now works for me.

I made 22 points in the NASDAQ today, shorted the ES a 1370 and am still holding, shorted copper at 3.6600 and am stil holding.

You don't have to believe me, I will post set ups staring tomorrow, the proof is in the trades.

I generally make one to 3 trades a day. The first set up is usually between 7:30 and 9:30 CST in the morning.

I hope I can help you in your trading. The ES is the hardest to trade because it is, like today, frequently range bound, but it can be successfully day traded.

Hpe it helps,

Spookywill

Interesting. Where is your stop on this one and what is your target?


By the way, your keyboard seems to be missing some keys...

Re: I Can Help with the E-mini, Spookywill

The stop was 1373, the target was the lows of 4.10 I got stopped out on copper for penny $250)loss.

I reversed the S&P position and went long at 1366.50 the rational for which I covered in another post. THe S&P profit was only 3.5 points.

The resulting long position gave me the big profit I was attempting to get. The stop is at 1362.50 which is just below the Globex low. Target potentially is new highs. The next resistance area is 1392, then the 1400 area.(3:42 pm CST.) I am still holding the long position.

I am still trying to determine how to deliver timely trade information. I will attempt to post someting premarket tomorrow.

I have to figure out how to share the methodology as it can't be done with out charts and more verbalization than I am willing to atempt.

I did post a thread warning not to go short the ES at 1:30 (PM, CST)when there was a small consolidation formation around 1380 which hopefully was helpful

Thank you for the information. Forum management will let you post in real-time after you have posted several times. I guess, it's part of their quality management process.

Don't worry about posting trade information - a handful of example trades are statistically meaningless. Show us how your approach would have performed over the last ten years. We're all interested in long-term consistency, I'm sure, and not a flash in the pan fluke that happens to have worked well over the past few months.

Thanks

Spookywill,

You just go right ahead and post whatever you want, and try to ignore the folks who don't appreciate your generosity.

Thanks for your kindness.


Luv,
Phantom

I'm curious, what happened to the "that you can test for yourself and take to the bank" or else it's BS? Not that I'm saying it should be the litmus test to post but you seemed pretty emphatic about it yesterday.

No matter, you're still my favorite chief trading advisor for a hedge fund listed on the internet. (Just kidding!)
