I was thinking it was going to be a dull evening. The 5 minutes into the session we had a lovely buy in the S&P with a target set for 3 points. My mum says to me “never look a gift horse in the mouth”. I have no idea what a gift horse is, and I’d never look in an animals mouth but I took her advice and the trade.
The chart is pretty clear. Well, very clear. Close first candle above the day trader swarm. Sentiment green. Target set (marked in yellow). I set my limit and just took the 3 points because I want some sleep.
I could have taken a lot more (now trading 2797.25) but you know the way I trade. In. Take profits. Leave. A nice $300 before bed on 2 contracts for myself and 3 more for my kids.
The week is off to a nice start. A $300 bonus if you like. Let’s all have a good one people.
