Today's Ideas:
    for morning of Wed. Dec. 5, 2007

    IMPORTANT: Below is what we're looking at currently, but pay attention to our UPDATES on the side of each page for actual entry/exit times and prices. Refresh pages often! You will witness our winners AND losers; something that is rare in our business.    TO VERIFY ACTUAL PRICES AND TIMES, PLEASE CLICK ON  A TICKER ENTRY TO THE RIGHT.  ALL TRADES, WHEN THEY OCCURED, ARE VIEWABLE.  

    Whenever possible, we have included the ETF symbol for those who are not experienced trading futures, etc.

    POTENTIAL setups for today include:

    T-bonds short (ZB future)- 30 year Treasury Bond

    FXC long (CAD future)

    UNG long (Natural gas)

    CRESY long (Cresud, Argentina agriculture blue chip)

    Next few days watch JPY(yen) and QM(oil).

    Position update as of 10:30am:

    We are short 2 units ZB (T Bonds avg. price 117 31/32)

    We are long 2 units FXC ($Canadian avg. price $110.02)

    We are long 2 units UNG (avg. price 35.45)

    We are long 1 unit SB (Sugar avg. price .09987)

    NOTES: That's our position update including prices. So far today we have not changed any positions, however that we see trades signals by 11:15 am. Focus on potential adds to ZB (bonds) short, UNG long, and monitor (no add yet) the FXC.  Importantly, we might alter positions, so watch the Update Ticker and refresh it often.  It's the quickest way to get NEW trades out to you. As we  write this, UNG is breaking higher and bonds weakening.  We will cover a portion of the bond short if we get spikes downward.  Going forward, we'll include in the text of this page some articles we find timely and interesting.  People often ask what our time frames are for each trade, and that is different for each position.  In general, however, most trades last about a week or two, BUT we  trade around the positions as you saw today.  Hence, we DO day trade at times.  We encourage any questions and comments on how to improve our site, and hope you find it useful.  This is a great business, but the learning curve can really take awhile as most successful traders don't have any reason to share ideas. This site is our way of giving back to the trading arenas, in the name of the few mentors we found that helped us along the way. Good luck.

    We can't always explain the reasoning for trades, but they are often a combination of technical, fundamental, and "gut feel". Pay attention, have fun, and make money!
