Mini Dow & E-mini Nasdaq charts ended 03-August-2006

Here are 30-min charts of Mini Dow and E-mini Nasdaq Futures after market closed. It was a repeat of Wednesday session. Long opportunities were found in both futures. I guess, I might need to consider getting an additional monitor or workstation to view more charts at the same time. It is a little bit tedious to day trade few futures at the same time using a laptop.

Anyway, you can’t win them all.

RE: Dummy day trading 02-August-2006

Here is the recap of Mini Dow and E-mini Nasdaq Futures, let’s look at the full picture of today’s action. It involved a little bit of luck, I exited Long position of Mini Dow near the top of the day after hitting 2~R gain. Mini Dow futures pulled back after hitting 11255, and failed to make new high in the rest of the trading day.

I had, in fact, missed out LONG opportunity of E-mini Nasdaq. Initial R was a little bit bigger comparing to Mini Dow. I was trading on a single screen Laptop, it was a little bit troublesome to switch around my chart/spreadsheet/calculator windows. Mini Dow and Nasdaq took off around the same time , so, too bad, I can’t have it all.

Dummy day trading #1 31-Jul-2006: E-mini Nasdaq composite: Long trade closed

I was looking for Nasdaq-100 futures to move up further to resistance level around 15550. A nice setup during the opening, I have decided to get LONG above inside bar. Bull failed to impress further and my intial stop was triggered with 1.13-R loss.
