3:30 Update

Two games in the NFL Tonight and so far I do not see anything that would lead me to either side of the games. Although that could change. I will update if I see anything develop.

The market was down 350 today …It was a brutal day with the market plunging during the last hour. I made one swing trade in after hours for an overnight trade. Its a high percentage trade and win or lose I will be out shortly after the open tomorrow.

11:30 Update

The markets are off almost 300 right now and we are getting very close to my SPY/SSO swing trade. Not quite there yet though. A further washout to the downside might get us there although I am hesitent putting on the trade going into Option expiration friday which tends to be weak after the open.

Right now I am flat with no swing trades to Monitor. I have done well considering the bloodbath the markets are experiencing right now. I am only off about 2,000 for the month which in the scheme of things is very little for the trading I am doing. I have managed my trades well.

Needless to say if you get stubborn and over extended in these markets there is nothing to save you. In poker you might get saved with the game quitting if you tilt. In the markets you do not have that luxury so you have to have discipline. If you do not have that best not to trade at all. As sooner or later your going to take a big hit.

I will update in the morning or maybe after the close if anything significant changes from here. But so far does not look good for a relief rally and may be a complete washout into the close…Panic is starting to set in.

The markets are gaping down this morning .5%. Well its clear my call that the last week in august would be the strongest of the month did not quite work out. The only thing that did work out was on Monday with the reversal which was supposedly going to start out a strong week going into thursday before the close or Friday after the open. But as with everything you have to adjust, keep your stops, and not get stubborn. Thats what we did this week and including the three trades that are open we are only off about 1300 going into today for the month. To put it in perspective…If you play 30-60 limit hold em or limit omaha 8 thats just over 20 big bets:) When things are going the other way its nothing to be ahead 5000 at this point in the month.

Like I said yesterday there are traders that wish that is where they stood for the month. This has been one of the most difficult months I can recall for swing trading.

So what do we do today? We manage our existing 3 trades. In addition I may try a day trade or overnight trade but as of now I am not planning on doing much today. It is not a good sign when the fed statement comes out and they are surprisingly dovish and the market rallies 200 pts but then drops 150 pts into the close. One of the things you look for is how the market reacts on good and bad news. If it acts as expected thats good. If it acts opposite then you need to take notice!
