Eur/usd was in an almost perfect stuttering mode during my absence. Obviously the stakes are elsewhere for now : on eur/chf (spectacular drop on Aug.9th and rebound), on S&P future, not mentioning Gold of course. It is again the "casino fever" feeling in the markets (which I profoundly dislike), due to new fears about world economy.. This mentality is dangerous for a scalper, it can keep him trading endlessly and greed is the best way to lose money and your mind.. I will try to trade less and selectively in the next days..
"When i trade at home, I often watch the sparrows in my garden. When I feed them bread, they take just a little piece at a time and fly away.They keep on flying back and forth, taking small bits of bread. You will never be able to shoot a sparrow, it is just too fast. That is the way I day trade". M. Weinstein.

There is nothing to sell on this blog. No signals, no "systems" for sale. Just my trading plan and the recording of my trades on eur/usd and the fx euro future recently. And the books, the music, the films I like.

I risked on the first trade only, then I saw the shallow market and I went for the (very) little.
