Haven't touched this market till yesterday since my last post. Got stopped out on a badly executed fill after having price go in the direction I expected prior to this trade, which gave me the confidence to make the trade.
Saw big buying cluster (now green, used to be red), then expected price to stay above VWAP but it didn't, got stopped out with -5 tick damage.
I'm 26 years old and have been trading for over 2 years now.
I have no formal education about trading. I just read many good blogs like Market Rewind and Brett Steenbarger's Traderfeed for ideas.
The more experience I get the more clear the market looks like and the easier it is to control my fear, greed and hope when trading.
I'm a technical trader.
I used to swing trade stocks a lot more often when there were plenty of technically appealing mean reversion set ups. The melt up of '09 has shut me out of stocks and made me adapt to other markets. Now I mostly scalp currency futures and sometimes even swing trading in very carefully selected situations.
