Trade journals are crucial in preventing us traders from becoming complacent or content with our trading plan or the markets because without having the ability to review archives of past trading days in a forever changing market...we won't know it's time to adapt when change occurs in the markets because broker statements alone doesn't help us keep that edge in comparison to a trade journal. In addition, although this journal contains advertisements involving my trade methods, it does contain useful trading tips a few times per week. Thus, if you're looking for trading tips that can improve your trading and understand that profitable trading involves more than just entry signals...consistently read this trade journal and the #FuturesTrades chat room logs where I post my trades in real-time from entry to exit (see link below) via my IRC user name wrbtrader that's the same as my user name on twitter.

Today's #FuturesTrades chat room logs is archived @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=443.

Quote:
Today's results are 12 wins : 9 losses. I didn't manage well a few trades today until the last few trades at the end of the trading day. In addition, I was expecting a few trade opportunities in relationship to the 3pm est "increasing volatility". However, an unexpected personal problem occur that caused me to miss those trade opportunities. One particular key change in supply/demand (WRB S/R Zone) was via the 5min chart @ 1510pm est that may have impact on Monday's trading session.

Trading Tip: If your method is sensitive (good or bad) to changes in volatility...the 3pm est price action usually has increasing volatility that last 5 - 15mins afterwards. Simply, this is one particular price action you shouldn't ignore if your method is sensitive to changes in volatility.


FYI - You can ask me questions here at the forum or you can tweet me on twitter about anything related to today's trading or related to your own trading.

Stocks Claw Out A Gain After Late Rally
By Alexandra Twin, senior writer
February 5, 2010: 6:21 PM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Stocks erased big losses by the close Friday, with technology shares leading the advance, following a three-session rout that had taken the market to its lowest point since last fall.

The Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) added 10 points, or 0.1%, ending at 10.012. The Dow had fallen as low as 9,835 earlier.

The S&P 500 index (SPX) rose 3 points, or 0.3%, and the Nasdaq composite (COMP) gained 16 points or 0.7%. All three major indexes had touched three-month lows before recovering.

Stocks fell sharply in the afternoon as worries about a growing debt crisis in Europe exacerbated uncertainty about the U.S. economic outlook. But the market changed direction as the dollar trimmed bigger gains and some of the selling pressure gave way.

"There may be some late-day buying coming in because the market has sold off pretty dramatically over the last few days," said Haag Sherman, managing director at Salient Partners.

Worries about the Euro zone caused investors to dump riskier assets and plow money into the U.S. dollar and government debt. The greenback rose to a more than 6-month high versus the euro and also gained against the yen. The dollar's strength then dragged on commodity prices, oil and gold stocks and companies and sectors that have been benefiting from a weaker dollar.

"A lot of the selling that we're seeing is technical, and it's all being driven by the dollar," said Jamie Cox, managing partner at Harris Financial Group.

He said that because there's a flight to quality into the dollar, assets that have been benefiting from a weak dollar are getting hit. However, he said that the trend was temporary and that once the panic washed out, buyers would move back into riskier assets.
Job losses continue, but rate falls

Debt crisis: Stocks plunged Thursday on worries that rising debt problems in Greece, Portugal and Spain could throw a wrench into any economic recovery in Europe, which would then influence the United States.

The news that the opposition parties defeated the Portuguese government's austerity plan provided another reminder, if any were needed, that European countries will find it extremely difficult to get a grip on their public finances.

Global markets continued to slide Friday, with Asian and European markets ending lower.

The global jitters overshadowed a U.S. government report that showed moderating job losses despite an improved unemployment rate.

"The employment report was a mixed bag overall, but the market is more focused on what is happening globally," said David Rosenberg, chief economist at Gluskin Sheff & Associates.

He said that with heightened concerns over nations' debt, risk premiums go up and the outlook for the economy and stock market gets cloudier.

Rosenberg said U.S. investors are focused on whether there will be a default or bailout in Greece, and how this will affect the euro and the dollar. "All of this is going to impact U.S. markets," he said.

On the move: The strong dollar again dragged on commodity prices, and energy and metal stocks fell through most of the session. But in the last hour turnaround, oil and gold stocks cut losses or turned higher.

Strength in big tech stocks such as Cisco Systems (CSCO, Fortune 500), Intel (INTC, Fortune 500), IBM (IBM, Fortune 500) and Microsoft (MSFT, Fortune 500) helped temper broader losses and eventually led a comeback.

In other news, Goldman Sachs (GS, Fortune 500) has surprised many on Wall Street by announcing that it is paying CEO Lloyd Blankfein $9 million in company-restricted stock as his bonus. Blankfein was expected to receive a heftier payment.

Earlier, JPMorgan (JPM, Fortune 500) said CEO Jamie Dimon was given a $16 million bonus last year, in restricted stock and options.

Market breadth turned mixed after being negative through most of the session. On the New York Stock Exchange, losers topped winners by nine to seven on volume of around 1.56 billion shares. On the Nasdaq, advancers beat decliners seven to six on volume of 2.84 billion shares.

Rally hits a roadblock: The S&P 500 surged 23% in 2009, and 65% after hitting a 12-year low on March 9 of last year. That momentum propelled stocks into the first half of January. But by the second half of the month, the tone had turned more sour and investors had begun to step back.

Between rally highs hit on Jan. 19 and Friday's lows, the S&P 500 lost 9.2%, getting close to the technical definition of a correction - a loss of 10%.
0:00 /3:37How to lose 800,000 jobs

Jobs: Employers cut 20,000 jobs from their payrolls last month, according to a Labor Department report released before the start of trading. Employers had been expected to add about 15,000 jobs, according to a consensus of economists surveyed by Briefing.com.

Employers cut a bigger-than-initially reported 150,000 jobs from their payrolls in December.

The January report had some positive signs, including an increase in the work week and an increase in temp agency employment -- both of which are seen as leading indicators.

But the report also showed that the impact of the recession on the labor market was far worse than initially reported -- making the recovery process all the more arduous.

The unemployment rate, generated by a separate survey, fell to 9.7% from 10% in December. Economists expected it to hold steady at 10%.
Toyota's troubles: A timeline

Toyota: The troubled company's chief executive apologized Friday for the recall of 8 million cars. However, he did not announce a new recall of the popular Prius Hybrid, despite reports of brake problems.

Earlier, the company said it is also examining the brake systems of the Lexus hybrid vehicles since they used the same system as the 2010 Prius.

Toyota (TM) shares gained 3.5%.

Commodities: COMEX gold for April delivery fell $10.20 to settle at $1,052.80 an ounce, after slumping $49 Thursday.

U.S. light crude oil for March delivery fell $1.95 to settle at $71.19 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Bonds: Treasury prices rose, lowering the yield on the 10-year note to 3.54% from 3.61% late Thursday. Treasury prices and yields move in opposite directions.

4:30 pm : Volatility returned to the market this week, with a sharp 3% drop in the S&P 500 on Thursday and big swings in the major averages today. However, looking at the end result the picture is less dramatic, as S&P 500 declined just -0.7% on the week. The increased volatility has stemmed from sovereign debt concerns centered around the more fiscally troubled European nations such as Portugal, Spain and Greece. This uncertainty pressured overseas markets over the past two days, and resulted in strength in the dollar.

The dollar has played a key role in the market action of the past two days, with dollar-denominated assets exhibiting a strong inverse relationship with the currency. This was very evident in this afternoon's strong rebound, as a pullback from 6-month highs in the dollar index coincided with a sharp short-covering rally that erased triple-digit losses in stocks. Technical levels have also played a role in the end-of-week action, with the S&P 500 managing to hold its 200-day exponential moving average after slicing through key support levels yesterday.

Looking at today's action more closely, stocks attempted to trade higher ahead of the opening bell, despite the worse-than-expected January Employment Report. The report showed that 20,000 nonfarm jobs were lost in January, worse than the consensus expectation for a gain of 15,000 jobs. However, a pullback in the headline unemployment rate to 9.7% from 10.0% proved a silver lining for some. While buyers temporarily had control as the dollar eased off morning highs, strength in stocks was short-lived. After declining as much as 1.8% during the first half of the day, the market was able to erase triple-digit losses (the DJIA rebounded over 170 pts) in a late-day short-covering spike that coincided with a pullback in the dollar.

Looking out to next week, earnings season continues but there are fewer major names scheduled to report, with only two Dow components (DIS & KO) due out during the week. Volatility could remain elevated as the market continues to digest macro factors and growing uncertainty. DJ30 +10 NASDAQ +16 NQ100 +0.8% R2K +0.6% SP400 +0.2% SP500 +3 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 1433/1822059383/1214 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 1326/1562194266/1740

3:30 pm : The US Dollar Index trended lower toward the end of today's session, which allowed most of the commodity complex to recover some of the day's losses. However, the CRB Commodity Index closed down 5.12 at $258.55, just above today's lows.

March crude oil fell over $3 per barrel in late morning activity to session lows of $69.50 per barrel, its lowest level since mid-December. Crude recovered more than half of the day's losses in the afternoon session as the dollar remained on a steady decline at the same time. By the end of pit trading, crude closed 2.7% lower at $71.19 per barrel. March natural gas was choppy today, putting in highs of $5.598 per MMBtu in the early morning session. The energy component couldn't hold its gains and fell into negative territory in the afternoon, but rallied back near session highs, closing at $ 5.518, up 1.9%.

Precious metals were weak all session. April gold remained in the red for most of today's session, hitting lows of $1044.50 per ounce. It recovered some losses on weakness in the dollar, but still closed 0.9% lower at $1053.20 per ounce. March silver traded in negative territory all session, hitting lows ($14.65 per ounce) around the same time as gold. The precious metal also managed to recovere a portion of its losses, but still closed in the red, down 3.1% to $14.88 per ounce.DJ30 -26.22 NASDAQ +6.65 SP500 -2.59 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 1169/2308.50/1453 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 953/1148.50/2085

3:05 pm : As we head into the final hour of trading for the week, the major averages continue to extend higher, with losses now under 1% for each index. Still, today's losses would put the S&P 500 at the lowest levels since November of 2009. Stength in semiconductor stocks is helping the Nasdaq to outperform on a relative basis.

News flow has subsided as the afternoon progresses. The was some commentary of interest from the Fed's Hoenig, who stated that the timing of a rate hike depends on the economy, but that we also "don't want to end up with a new asset bubble down the line."DJ30 -96.9 NASDAQ -11.3 SP500 -10.7 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 978/2048/1660 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 721/1022/2308

2:35 pm : While the major averages are still well into the red, they are pushing off the intraday lows set at about 2:00 ET. The Nasdaq continues to outperform the other indices, currently down less than 1%.

In terms of specific sectors, the Industrials continue to put in signficant losses, down about 2%. Stocks such as Deere (DE 48.69 -1.18), Boeing (BA 57.53 -1.79), and CH Robinson (CHRW 51.54 -1.71) are showing particular weakness.DJ30 -118.7 NASDAQ -14 SP500 -12.6 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 831/1872/1785 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 569/928.1/2464

2:00 pm : The stock market has extended its afternoon slide to a fresh session low. Stocks are currently on track for their third straight loss and a weekly loss of 2.5%. That would mark the stock market's fourth straight weekly decline, during which time stocks have lost 8.6%.

Though the latest leg down has been broad based, industrial stocks and energy stocks are the weakest. Both sectors are down 2.4% at the moment. Meanwhile, pressure is least intense in the tech sector, which is currently down 0.4% as semiconductor-related names like Broadcom (BRCM 28.72, +1.01) and Applied Materials (AMAT 11.92, +0.12) show resilience. Their strength has also kept the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index (unch.) out of negative territory. DJ30 -152.96 NASDAQ -22.91 SP500 -17.24 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 771/1.68 bln/1830 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 524/824 mln/2506

1:30 pm : Sellers have intensified their efforts to send the stock market to a fresh session low, which also marks a new three-month low. The move has been broad based with all 10 major sectors in negative territory.

Though the stock market has traded in choppy fashion this session, its intraday bounces haven't really marked any sign of real support. Instead, many dip buyers that kept the market's downward moves short and shallow during the past few months have shown little life in recent sessions. DJ30 -93.48 NASDAQ -12.34 SP500 -11.21 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 860/1.53 bln/1694 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 634/745 mln/2379

1:05 pm : Stock market participants are still in selling mode after the previous session's 3% slide. Meanwhile, six-month highs for the dollar have kept dip buyers from offering support.

Stocks attempted to make a bit of a gap up ahead of the opening bell as it was learned that 20,000 nonfarm jobs were lost in January. The consensus had called for the addition of 15,000 jobs during the month, but many expected a worse reading since Thursday's weekly jobless claims tally saw a spike in initial claims. A pullback in the headline unemployment rate to 9.7% from 10.0% also proved pleasing.

Still, the data only temporarily swayed the mood of participants toward something more positive, while a bounce by the buck rekindled pessimism among participants. The greenback's current 0.6% gain against competing currencies has the Dollar Index at a fresh six-month high.

The dollar's strength has been particularly troublesome for oil prices, which are currently down 3.5% to $70.55 per barrel. With participants inclined to sell and oil prices down, energy stocks are currently this session's worst performers. As such, the energy sector is down 1.6%.

After a slight pullback this morning, the Volatility Index, or VIX, has made its way back above its 200-day moving average. It is currently up 2.3% to 26.7.DJ30 -55.02 NASDAQ -2.77 SP500 -6.22 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 1014/1.42 bln/1531 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 797/686 mln/2190

12:30 pm : The Nasdaq has made its way back to the neutral line, thanks to the relative strength of large-cap tech issues. However, the broader market remains in the red as 70% of its components are mired in weakness. Though that's a large proportion of declining issues relative to advancers, it isn't as lopsided as the previous session, when more than 95% of the components in the S&P 500 logged losses.

Ongoing weakness in the broader equity market has propped up Treasuries. In turn, the benchmark 10-year Note is up another nine ticks this session. That has its yield to a two-month low. DJ30 -46.02 NASDAQ -0.54 SP500 -5.25 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 1020/1.30 bln/1507 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 810/628 mln/2157

12:00 pm : The Dow and S&P 500 recently retreated to fresh session lows, but the Nasdaq has yet to come back in touch with the low levels that it set in the early going.

Energy stocks have dropped to a 1.9% loss as oil prices come under increased pressure. Oil prices were last quoted at $70.15 per barrel, down 4.1%, after a brief dip below the $70 per barrel mark. Oil prices haven't been that low since mid-December. They are now down approximately 15% from their 52-week high, which was set in January.

After a slight pullback this morning, the Volatility Index, or VIX, has made its way back above its 200-day moving average. It is currently up 1.9% to 26.6. DJ30 -61.29 NASDAQ -5.03 SP500 -6.55 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 897/1.17 bln/1603 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 711/560 mln/2250

11:30 am : The financial sector has surrendered most of its gains from the early going, but is still up 0.3% for the session. Specialized finance companies (+2.7%) remain in favor, but diversified financial services players (-0.4%) like JPMorgan Chase (JPM 37.89, -0.46) are relatively weak. Shares of JPM are at a fresh six-month low and are now trading just above a key support zone.

Meanwhile, the greenback has continued its gradual advance, such that the Dollar Index is now up 0.6% to a fresh session high and a fresh six-month high, for that matter.

The dollar's gains have exacerbated selling against oil prices, which are now down 2.8% to $71.50 per barrel. DJ30 -51.92 NASDAQ +2.87 SP500 -3.08 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 1052/1.01 bln/1419 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 861/480 mln/2055

11:00 am : Stocks have bounced back from their morning drop, but the broader market remains rather mixed.

Materials stocks have made their way to a 1.0% gain, which is a better gain than that of any other major sector. The move comes as diversified metals and miners stocks spike to a 2.4% gain. Forest products are weak, though. That's largely the result of an earnings miss by Weyerhaeuser (WY 39.21, -1.18). The stock is presently a primary laggard in the materials sector.

Large-cap tech is also trading with relative strength. Gains by shares of Apple (AAPL 193.78, +1.73) and Cisco (CSCO 23.55, +0.39) have helped the Nasdaq Composite take a lead over its counterparts. Cisco's advance marks an extension from its gain in the previous session, when it was the only Dow component to book a gain. DJ30 -12.77 NASDAQ +5.58 SP500 -0.62 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 1131/853 mln/1293 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 993/407 mln/1904

10:30 am : The US Dollar Index has rallied back near session highs, which has put pressure on most commodities.

March crude oil popped to morning highs of $73.94 per barrel around the open of pit trading. However, the energy component has pulled back to the unchanged line on the strength of the dollar and is currently at $73.14 per barrel. March natural gas has traded in the black all session and continues trading near recently hit highs of $5.598 per MMBtu despite the recent strength in the dollar this morning. Currently, natural gas is trading at $5.567 per MMBtu, up 3.0%.

Outside of the energy markets, precious metals are seeing weakness due to the dollar. March silver pushed down to fresh session lows of $14.875 per ounce in recent trade and is currently 1.9% lower at $15.055. Gold also remains in negative territory and is currently 0.4% lower at $1059.20 per ounce.DJ30 -16.93 NASDAQ +2.34 SP500 -1.87 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 923/615.9 mln/1428 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 849/311.4 mln/2006

10:00 am : This session's choppy start has given way to a broader pullback that has taken every major sector, save financials (+0.6%), into the red. Losses are steepest among industrials and consumer discretionary plays, which are down 1.2% and 1.1%, respectively.

The recent retreat puts the Dow below 10,000 and at its lowest point in roughly three months. Its downturn comes as the greenback extends its gains against competing currencies. The move has the Dollar Index up 0.4% to a fresh six-month high. The buck is now up 3.1% year-to-date, which makes it one of the best performing assets so far this year -- oil is down 8% this year; gold is down 3.3% in 2010, and the broad-based S&P 500 has lost 5.0% since the new year.

Early movers: Trading up -- ARG +42.6%, PWER +20.3%, BEBE +15.5%, SOMX +13.8%, SFLY +12.7%, BEZ +12.2%, OPTR +9.8%, ALKS +8.8%, CTCT +8.7%, PKI +7.5%; Trading down -- PFWD -26.3%, EGOV -25%, DMAN -11.2%, TTMI -10.2%, APD -9.7%, BPSG -9%, XTEX -7.9%, VRNM -6.7%, AOD -6.3%, AIXG -5.5%

Advancing Sectors: Financials (+0.6%)
Declining Sectors: Industrials (-1.2%), Consumer Discretionary (-1.1%), Energy (-1.0%), Utilities (-0.8%), Telecom (-0.5%), Tech (-0.4%), Consumer Staples (-0.3%), Materials (-0.3%), Health Care (-0.2%)DJ30 -41.64 NASDAQ -7.04 SP500 -3.50 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 766/352 mln/1471 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 681/192 mln/2089

09:45 am : Stocks jumped out to a solid gain in the first few minutes of trade, but pressure has since picked up to pull the broader market back a bit. Stocks now trade in mixed fashion.

Of the 10 major sectors in the S&P 500, financials currently look the strongest. The sector, which was the worst performer in the previous session with its 4.2% loss, is up 1.0% at the moment. Its relative strength stems from diversified banks (+1.6%) and specialized financial services stocks (+1.5%). DJ30 -3.93 NASDAQ +1.15 SP500 +0.29 NASDAQ Adv/Vol/Dec 947/203 mln/1176 NYSE Adv/Vol/Dec 909/128 mln/1760

09:15 am : S&P futures vs fair value: -0.90. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +6.80. January nonfarm payrolls fell unexpectedly, but the headline unemployment rate has slipped from 10.0% to 9.7%, which marks the lowest level since August. Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar has pared some of its early morning gains against competing currencies. That has helped improve the tone among premarket participants, but a mixed start for the major equity averages still looks to be in order.

09:00 am : S&P futures vs fair value: +2.50. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +9.00. U.S. stock futures have bounced higher and now point to a solid start, but European markets remain weak. As such, Germany's DAX is down 0.8%. The country's industrial production unexpectedly declined 2.6% in December. Engineering giant Siemens (SI) is a primary source of weakness at the moment. Daimler (DAI) is also weak, though it was upgraded by analysts at RBS. In France, the CAC is down 2.1% amid wide-spread weakness. Of its 40 members, only Suez Environnement is the only name to trade higher. Total (TOT) and BNP Paribas currently lead losses. Meanwhile, Britain's FTSE is down 1.1% as 90% of its components reside in the red. Natural resource plays BG Group, Rio Tinto (RTP), Xstrata (XTA), and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A). BG Group recently missed earnings expectations, while Royal Dutch Shell's disappointment came earlier this week. In Asia, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index fell 2.6% and Japan's Nikkei tumbled 2.9%. Shares of Toyota (TM) managed to steady their fall, despite continued recall woes. Mitsui (MITSY) and other resource-linked shares took a beating, but Sony (SNE) edged up after it halved its annual loss forecast. After the bell, Panasonic (PC) said its quarterly profit spiked. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng dropped 3.3%, which put its shares to a five-month low. In mainland China, the Shanghai Composite lost 1.9%.

08:35 am : S&P futures vs fair value: -2.00. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +4.80. Stock futures are mixed after some whipsaw action in the minutes that immediately followed the latest official jobs figures. Specifically, nonfarm payrolls fell by 20,000 in January, but that was a disappointment since the consensus had called for the addition of 15,000 jobs during the month. The change in payrolls for December was revised downward to reflect a loss of 150,000 jobs. Despite the negative numbers, the official unemployment rate now stands at 9.7%, which is better than the consensus call for an unemployment rate of 10.0% and down month-over-month from 10.0%. Average hourly earnings for all employees increased 0.2% month-over-month, while average weekly hours of work for all employees totaled 33.9 hours. Average hourly earnings for production increased 0.3% month-over-month and average weekly hours of production increased to 33.3 from 33.2.

08:00 am : S&P futures vs fair value: -5.40. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: +0.30. The stock market logged its worst single-session percentage loss in nine months on Thursday, but at the moment there isn't any sort of rebound taking shape. In fact, stock futures point to a moderately lower start for the broader market as global participants continue to rotate into the dollar, which has put the Dollar Index up 0.3% to a fresh six-month high this morning, amid considerable weakness in overseas markets. However, the wild card this morning is the nonfarm payrolls report, which is due at the bottom of the hour.

06:39 am : S&P futures vs fair value: -5.70. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -2.30.

06:39 am : Nikkei...10057.09...-298.90...-2.90%. Hang Seng...19665.08...-676.60...-3.30%.

06:39 am : FTSE...5051.03...-88.20...-1.70%. DAX...5453.69...-80.80...-1.50%.
