Trading Session Recap (Week 39; Day 1)

Looking at the week behind 1 day @ a time…..

Good trading is always going back over the trading day and reviewing the setups that may or may not have worked out and what kept you in or perhaps took you out too early. Looking for the trend move and remaining in the trade is the objective. It’s your patience and discipline that will continue to grow as a trader when you implement such tools.

Kenneth Polcari Newsletter Highlights

Oil,, which got crushed on Friday is making a small rebound this morning, but the concern is that the Mkts are all of a sudden worried that OPEC will fail to agree to any production cuts at all….ARE YOU KIDDING?  Whoever said that they would – other than the media…..remember – OPEC members never committed – there was only speculation.
