Tuna: apparently Churchill once said: “If you put 12 economists in a room and you ask a question, you will have 12 different answers…except if one of them Maynard Keynes, in which case you will get 13 distinct answers…”

net net, screwed up my 4k profits, and cut them in half.

lesson...overtrade = overkill.

i have my own system in place for trading, but i benefit A LOT from this board, sometimes helping me confirm, but more often keeping me aware of aspects that i don't always think about. my particular view is to keep your system fairly simple and repeatable. if you can do that, then i think you can move towards the higher level "optimization" process which is where i feel like cobra is. even with that being said, sometimes, like this morning, your system says up, you think up, and the market goes down and vice a versa, over and over again. i've been at this for 8 years, 5 professionally, 3 for myself, and i can tell you that you are still vulnerable to even the basic mantras of profitable trading.

hate myself for pissing away what i generally target as 2 days of profits, but...we learn and learn, and learn again.

i'm short a small position into the weekend.

good luck trading, and thanks for everyone out their's time and efforts in posting up their ideas, thoughts, and most especially charts.

have a great holiday weekend,
john


Great post because so true. I'm still new at this too and my list of what has burned me since I started goes like this:

Overtrading
Greed
Not following my system
No System
Too tight Stops
Too emotional
Not Paying Attention
No goal
Lack of Plan
No analysis of Mistakes
Preconceived Ideas
Going Against Pros (Why being here at Cobra's board rules!)

Looks like the week will end flat since we closed at 1173.43 last Friday.

Have a great long weekend guys & gals!

Hi Cobra,

Could you please update your thoughts about whether you still expect another push up before wave 5 down... your target last night was 1150 then wave 4 up. do you still hold this view? Also what is your view about todays selloff....does it feel strong to you? Thanks much!!

Can you be more clear about your count. I run a short-term count and have S&P in Wave 5 down from 1231. It sounds like you're talking a larger degree and an Alternate Count that is Bullish. My larger degree count is Bearish and it's heading to 1160 area.

(I understand silver and golds fundamental long term....but dont understand this intermarket move currently....)
Sitting here stumped......


Gold and silver are playing into the hands of those that are thinking either safe haven or QE3, aka more inflation. Gold has already taken but silver hasn't confirmed the move, so now that it's over the $43 range it should hit $50 or even more.

And I understand gold as safe haven...but silver as safe haven????
Or the traders are speculating that there will definently be QE3....ahhhh fundamentals dont make sense....

I didn't give target, the chart is for direction only.

As whether there's one last push up, I have to check my charts, don't know yet.

hard to see whether the selling is strong today, need see the close. statistically, big gap down, lower low after 10:30am ET, 90% chances Open > Close, so I'll assume we close low of day today? really not sure.

going to hold my BAC shorts through the weekend.

not sure if this means all THAT much as it always tends to be a bit lagging in my experience, but i find it very interesting that there's NO buying on weakness in BAC today, even with it being down far more than other financials. in fact, there are no financials being bought on today's weakness (unless you count TRV).

does anyone else find that interesting?

gold & silver long , run up to 9/11/11 then sell?
spy short , run down to 9/11/11 then buy?

who will hold spy long over 9/11/11? not me

1st of month look at monthly charts of your holdings, trend is macd + or - 0.

now for bla bla, "In 2010 central banks began to buy gold rather than sell gold, as a group. If you think that is because of some “epiphany of understanding the nature of gold” :lol: , you are free to believe so, but the reality is that central banks are buying gold to devalue the dollar, and all paper money. These buy programs have only just started, and they are not going away."
kitco.com
if so, know your trend :mrgreen: and trade with the trend :evil:

alert for flash crash :shock: max pain is fast up clean shorts, then fast down run the stops :mrgreen: must be many stops at August low :lol:
