Ah..Dow is trading at record high..Ah…So what? Who cares?
It was another boring day for dummy trader (DT). I did not have any DT. Instead, I started my scalping here and there using squeeze technique. And I named it Moron Scalping. Basically, it is a break out trading based on bollinger bands and Keltner Channel. Nothing really fancy. I am still learning. I am refining my game plan now. No big profit, but enough for me to get some nice coffee for breakfast.
It was not a bad idea to scalp some small trades during the days like this. Market did a turn in the afternoon and moved up. It was just another tough trading day.
The only interesting event during the day is the excellent eCBOT was down AGAIN. What is going on there? Technical issue AGAIN? I am a IT guy, I know “Techincal issue” is BS. That’s what we use to answer customer’s complaints.
