That is what I am thinking, buy the gap down, but the first bounce will probably not go far, then retest the lows after most of the day. Not confident of a big bounce, and most of it could be overnight, then another big gap down tomorrow.

I can't find any news for the overnight selloff.


Volkswagon scandal? I don't think so...


==================


Other than exiting long on a bounce, do u have a follow-up plan?


Yeah, back to my regular day-trading. :=)

I'll be looking for long entry first, and we'll see how the market set things up after that.

Thanks for the update. Btw, vw scandal was known before monday's open (hence the weak dax). Dont think that is the catalyst for today's selloff.

Five minute MACD looks sick, new lows first.

Out at approx. 1947 (-10) and just bought it back at 1939 with a 5-pt stop.

Long is not an ideal trade at this juncture... we are about to go into a no bid type market

Adjusted my stop to -10 instead. Probably should've waited for European bourses to close before jumping back in.

Out at breakeven 1939 and reloaded at 1930 with the same 10-pt stop. Unless you carry short positions from yesterday, it's been trading mostly in a 10-point range. This hasn't been an ideal session for day-traders. Things could change in a hurry. The only trader that has posted his short positions here since yesterday is Salam. Congrats, buddy.

Not pretty and a lota extra work, but a trader's gotta do what a trader's gotta do. It's just another day at the office.

So, once more, with feelings, I'm holding this swing long position with the above referenced 2000 target in mind. However, I may exit and go to cash tomorrow ahead of my aforementioned concern over the post-holiday Tokyo session.

In less than one hour, China Flash PMI will be released. I am seeing spreads widen slightly, as if they were awaiting a NFP number, lol. The Fed's 've made China watchers out of a lot of market participants.
