E-mini Trading Room Conversation April 18, 2013

This is an early entry of the e-mini trading room conversation transcript. None of my entries will be excluded from these conversations and the only edits will come from those who wish to not be included and those who violate room rules. I hope that you can grab the bits and peices to make sense of reasoning as well as approach to trading.

This is meant to be informative and educational for all traders including those who may have arrived late to the room. The room begins for each trader as they enter and some information can be missed. All kinds of events can occur that would prevent me from including the day's conversation such as temporary internet issues which log my own account. It is my goal to provide all transcript, but it is not a guarantee that I will be able to do so. This early conversation was not accompanied by time stamps, but future conversations will include timestamp's for greater use.

Chris: Been one of those days ladies and gents...a whole lot of nothing on my end...unless my charts are just frozen...I've just been staring...I should have looked for more opportunities this morn, but didn't see this coming
Chris: we're finally startin to get some sort of movment...hopefullyl it will continue
Chris: just been a lot of choppy mess
Chris: right now we finally made it down to the lwoer support area
Chris: trendline support*
Chris: but the fast to sluggish inconsistency is holding me back a bit from placing any trades
richyrich: Chris do you ever watch the VWAP? It looks like it wants to bounce down off that this afternoon but if it breaks through it could go long. Its actually forming resistance on ES at 1549...
Chris: no rich I don't keep an eye on it....I've heard of it and possibly tried to take a look, but never really studied it in much detail
richyrich: Yeah its something new I've been looking at... today it worked like a charm typically at some point price reverts to that avg price line and it will typically do 1 of 2 things. Break through it or bounce off it.... today it bounced down..
richyrich: 3 times since lunch would have been good for 3 pts a piece
jake: rich do u use Ninja as your platform??
richyrich: yep... 5 min chart
jake: i've been looking for the VWAP , haven't been able to find it. Where do I locate it? Any suggestioins??
richyrich: i found mine from a 3rd party source outside of ninja... it was from Big Mikes forum I think?
jake: Thanks
