There are still 3 weeks left (till 9-11) before the Westgate Super Contest starts – If you need a proxy service to enter – “lasvegascontestproxy.com” I know the owner of the service and can highly recommend this Proxy service. So if you’re from out of town…or out of the country and have the urge to enter the Westgate NFL contest this season …give them a call. I am not affiliated with this service nor do I get any remuneration for recommending them.

Well at least you can say about my MLB picks is they are consistent! 0-3 Thursday. Can it get any worse …probably.

I do not anticipate any more plays for today in MLB. NFL preseason games tonight. I will update with any setups I see a bit later.

I am flat on my swing trades now and do not anticipate putting any on today. Our overnight trade gained 1.05%. I will post more on the market and swing trading Sunday.

Looks like we may get a break today with a gap only in the .6 % range. It just does not feel right without a gap of over 1%. But we have 30 min left before the open so who knows:)

The market for me is in no mans land. We have had a nice 2 day bounce …one of the biggest on record. But these days the market has been setting records on both sides in addition to intraday swings. 200 pts moves in an hour are normal right now!

Until the volatility stops swing trading is going to be very difficult. I did place one swing trade on at the close yesterday and will exit this morning at the open. It was on the short side of the market fading the incredibly strong two days of movement. Right now the trade has about a 1% profit.

I may take a day trade today but nothing in the swing trade category as the risk reward is not very good right now for my style of trading. Nothing worse then getting whipsawed in these markets. That can really eat up a trading account fast. So……better setups will come along soon. Ideally we get a quick fall to retest the lows of last week washing out retail traders and at that point it will be time to consider getting aggressive.
