Former Middle East analyst for the US govt. Trading the news the right way: with risk:reward always in my favor.
The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Don't expect the market to behave exactly the same way twice. The market is an artist, not a computer. It has a repertoire of basic behavior patterns that it subtly modifies, combines and springs unexpectedly on its audience --- Wyckoff
I was a blue collar worker for 25 years and traded for 10 years before I became a pro. Now I work 10x as hard. It's all worth it tho! My posts are just observations, not cause to take action. Do your own due diligence.
Been actively trading since 1999. Last two years, I concentrated exclusively on crude oil futures $CL_F. I only used technical analysis to enter and exit the market. Trading hours: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM. Love music and work out 3 times a week. Married.
