Chaos Clinic Recap
Here are Al's comments
2;02 stopped out. Done for the day. Thanks for coming. See you next week.
1:47 I'm trying to hang tough because I see 1-2-3-4 moves and I want to be in on 5
1:42 got confused on 20/110, minor down crossing now turning up just after trade time; rebought 1306 stop 1303
1:36 on my other trade bought one more to lower average cost to 1307.512 stop 1303
1:34 stopped on hotline trade for -3
1:26 may get stopped
1:11 posted a fractal grid chart in the CCT Room; that pattern is from the Chaos Trading Made Easy course
1:08 bought one at 1307.25 for hotline trade, stop 1304.25
1:02 backed off my stop on my trade to 1304; Mars flux is too close to 1305
1:00 coming into the second hotline trade window; watching for a continuation buy
12:49 pilot looked good so I added 7 ; average price on 8 is 1307.79 stop 1305
12:43 in my own account I trade multiple contracts. I start buy buying one as a pilot when I see a setup on a pattern.
Jesse Livermore used pilot trades to test the market.
12:40 the white 440 EXMA has turned up; bought one at 1307 based on FOG pattern-not the hotline second trade
12:38 testing high-looking bullish to close
12:24 I'm back- see 1-2-3 moves of 7 in an up Chaos Clamshell. Hopefully get a move 4 pullback into the second trade time
11:22 looks to me like the market needs to chew on things for a while; taking a break. Back before second trade time
11:20 posted a second Fractal of Pi chart in the CCT Room
11:11 posted a Fractal of Pi chart in the CCT Room
11:04 The jobs report was all over the evening news last night-sure sign that there was a lot of angst about it
Got a big drop on the news, and a rally that erased most of the drop
11:01 We did hit my 1307 cover, which was based on the Saturn +S225 flux; the Saturn +S270 set yesterday's highs
10:55 when you trade, you are trading two things-the market and yourself; you will make errors; sometimes you can't tell if an entry is and error or not.
But if you suspect it is, protect yourself from yourself.
10:52 now I'm not at all sorry I pressed my stop on that late entry; my goal is to do no harm to my account
10:45 the other thing that made me nervous was the 440 EXMA overhead-just touching it now
10:39 50% retrace of two day range made me nervous
10:37 out for zero; I didn't like my late entry so pressed my stop
10:35 will cover 1307; stop to 1304.75
10:33 my entry is a bit late
10:30 not strong at all. taking continuati0n buy at 1304.75 stop 1300
10:22 rally did stall; watching to see how strong the decline is
10:15 range exactly 9 points since early low; watch for a 4.5 point pullback
10:11 getting close to the +O135 flux at 1304
10:06 watch for a fade now
10:04 I have placed a Face Of God chart in the Certified Chaos Trader's Room. That room is open
to graduates of my 4 main courses. See http://moneytide.com -> Courses for details.
9:52 rallied up to the 110 EXMA- should slow the rally
9:41 on a gap down day, there is often a rally until about 11:00, near our trade time
9:35 a bit of buying as the outcry sesion opens
9:25 prices bottomed on the Node +O090 electric field flux at 1295; 9 pts=45 degrees up is 1304, possible high
9:22 it looks to me like prices hold up in the morning and rally a bit in the afternoon
9:17 trade times today are 10:50 and 13:37 - so just watching for a while
9:15 bad jobs report created a good drop-now look for some consolidation
9:00 Good morning from Chaos Manor

6/3/2011 12:05:51 PM MT LEM:: Anyone short here?
6/3/2011 12:02:43 PM MT LEM:: And another crossover down; aren't the rules saying short here?
6/3/2011 11:48:59 AM MT LEM:: This is what is frustrating about trading moving averages; the back and forth whipsaws even the trade window doesn't seem to help.
6/3/2011 11:46:08 AM MT LEM:: Now crossover UP. Flatten and reverse to short didn't work either.
6/3/2011 11:39:11 AM MT Al****:: yeah, I mis read it
6/3/2011 11:35:18 AM MT LEM:: Looks like crossover down on 20 and 110ma right at the trade window time.
6/3/2011 11:34:15 AM MT LEM:: Ok; thanks; I see the trend continuation discussion. But if it doesn't dip and curl away now we get stopped out.
6/3/2011 11:16:28 AM MT Al****:: 20 dip to 110 - be sure to read the tutorial on Trading The MoonTides, right side of ListOfCharts page
6/3/2011 11:13:47 AM MT LEM:: Please advise what you are looking at for setup for continuation buy.
