Sharpshorts Day Trading e-mini Futures

Trading for a living, not a killing

I have several reasons for developing this board - it should be useful for:
1) Analyzing my trading and keeping me focused on sticking with my trade plan.
2) Illustrating how the signals are spotted and how they are used to day trade.
3) I hope readers will gain by reviewing the charts and comments I post and 

perhaps get something to add to their trading bag of tricks.


My trading set up in a nut shell



 Be clean and green at the end of every day 
 

Definitions of the terminology used most frequently in the posts and on the charts:

[HH, HL, LH,  LL] - Higher High, Higher Low, Lower High, Lower Low
[P/A or Price Action] - description of price movements, i.e. a series of HH's & HL's describes an up trend 
[TLB] - Trend Line Break...[TLB-retest] - price returning to the level at which it broke a trend line
[Divergence] - Price going one direction while indicators do the opposite
[2xD] - two indicator divergence...[3xD] - three indicator divergence
[RD] - reverse or hidden divergence...example: price making a HL while indicator(s) make a LL
[DIV] - divergence . . . . . . . .[MT] - MACD EMA slope...MAC Trend
[MOF] - Money On the floor, a pull back that reverses before reaching a previous low...
(often it's the first HL that marks the reversal of a down trend)
[Slingshot] - describes a pattern in the stochastic indicator, usually from the over-sold area...aka SLING
[2B Dragon or 2B] - a specific double bottom pattern where features of the mythical creature can be described:
Starting on the upper left of the chart - a 'Top-of-Tail'  followed by 'rear feet'  + 'front feet'  with a 'Hump' in between
followed by a consolidation area that defines the dragon's 'Head'

Indepth explainations and details of my terminologies can be viewed on my blogs.
