So lets do a fast recap excerpts from Briefing

 

20161230121028201612301109sp5002016.gif?f

 

 

The S&P 500 declined 5.1% in January; meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 5.5%, marking the worst start to a year for the Dow ever

 

 

China's stock market dropped 7.0% alone on its first day of trading in 2016.

 

 

The meltdown didn't end when January came to an end either. The first half of February brought additional selling pressure that left the S&P 500 down 11.4% for the year at its close on February 11 -- and then the selling ended.

 

 

While the S&P 500 declined 0.4% for the month of February overall, it surged 5.6% from its close on February 11 to the end of the month.

 

 

Then up from there!

 

March was a huge month, producing a 6.6% gain for the S&P 500, which was followed up by a 2.7% gain in April, and a 1.5% increase in May.

 

June 23rd Brexit Vote

 

That vote proved to be a stunner as the majority of UK voters voted in favor of the UK leaving the European Union. That decision flew in the face of conventional polling wisdom and it triggered a knee-jerk sell-off that knocked the S&P 500 down 113 points, or 5.3%, in the two sessions following the result -- and then the selling ended.

 

Briefly, the stock market meandered its way through the months of August, September, and October with a somewhat negative orientation that was rooted in falling oil prices, a weak health care sector, and rising bond rates.

 

The biotech stocks in particular were hit hard as talk on the campaign trail of drug price controls clipped their wings.

 

Donald Trump stunned conventional polling wisdom and won the electoral vote. In turn, the GOP won enough seats to have majority control in both the House and Senate.

 

There were huge declines in the futures market on Election Night when results pointed to a Trump victory, yet there was even a bigger reversal in the cash market when trading began the next day.

 

The post-election rally was powered by the financial sector, which took off on a pro-growth trade that featured a steepening yield curve, and cyclical sectors that would be in a prime position to benefit from faster growth and rising inflation.

 

The final tally for the year is impressive

This market is not only sitting for hours in front of the computer watching graphics and doing operations, that is the final work, there has to be a whole preparation prior to that moment, a good operator must have a plan of their own.

    • EU is still trading in a range. I'm heading out of town tonight and won't be back until Sunday evening. 
    • Came back to check on price after an hour of meditation, EU came within 3 ticks of target... Fascinating the ego brings up the story of betrayal, as if the market was out there to get me. I then reminded myself cool, this trade went over 2R. Even better yet, I acted consistently with executing my trading plan! Let the market do its thing. 
    • I took this limit long on the retest of the earlier 123 and support area. Target is near top of the zone. I notice that my target needs to be more mechanical in the sense that I may be influence to have a more/less aggressive target based on the results of the last trade. I have collected some modifications for the next batch of trades. 
    • Correction: the GU made it to 45 out of a 49 tick target. It was a 2.5R full target, not 3R. The EU long trade was 7:15am EST. I will refrain from getting up even earlier with the goal of not missing the next one. I notice after each trade, the mind, with the desire of wanting to experience a win, subtly pushes me to deviate from trading plan. My main concern with this set of 20 trades is build a greater sense of consistency in my execution and self trust. I realized the outcome of each individual trade absolutely does not matter. If I started to care about it, I am assuming that somehow I am responsible for the market's movement, which I am not. I am only responsible for following my trading plan, which can be adjusted after the 20 trades based on the stats I collect. 
    • GU closed for -1R. It made it to 2.8R but not quite the 3R. There was also a EU long trade that happened about 4:15am EST. FOMC is over now so let's see if we can get a nice trend setup today.
