This is a simple rule for staying out of trouble: pay attention to Professional bars on the 4,500 tick chart.
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been in a trade, wishing for the trend to keep going my way, moving my target way out, willing it to turn into a monster trade. And then the Professional bars pop up on the 4,500 tick chart. I try and ignore them but I know it’s trouble.
Happened on Thursday. Happened again on Friday. And I had to dump Short trades that had been nicely profitable and get with the Professionals.
Good luck with your Emini trading next week.
