    This week was awful for me. I consistently lost money every day except Wednesday (made a few hundred on Wednesday, while at the beach, trading on my phone with delayed quotes). This weekend I have some serious evaluation and criticism to conduct. I cannot afford to keep trading so poorly.

    One of the most painful things about this is that my analysis has been good all week, but my executions have been atrocious.

    video review. sorry for the tone, but I'm a bit bummed out right now

    There's a good chance I will post again before Monday with some thoughts and reviews of my trading. I also still have to post my trade records for May (which was a loss by the way).

    Thanks for being a part of Swing-High.com! Always trade with a stop loss and manage your risk appropriately.

    Stay classy,

    here is my advice for you:
    short any stock or commodity you like, and do it incrementaly , like for example if you short oil, short it every 1 buck or so, with small position size. or on the DOW short the futures every 100 points. At the end of the move, you will be booking a lot of money and you don't have to check for resistance/supports, indicators or whatever technical junk there is.
    This market is entering into a long term decline, for months, all "the stuff" will be down, and the dollar will be up big time (check my instablog for charts), so if you want to make a killing just short it in an incremental trade form. Because the market will do retracements all the time and you won't know where, so if you trade one position of your typical lot size and use stop/losses you will earn much less, than programming sell stop orders in advance and waiting for them to execute. You even don't need to be at the trade station, just confirm on daily basis the market is going down consistently. Check my blog, I will post when the downtrend is over.
