No Trades 100% For Following Rules!

Today I took zero trades but had 100% accuracy following my rules.

There was one grade B short setup that I passed on because NQ had double bottomed and I did not want to trade into that...

Nice trading today Zach!

Kudos to you for having the patience to watch the session and wait for an A+ setup knowing that it may not appear at all. Taking no trades feels better than taking bad...

Lets take a look at my YM trades today.
1st:
I thought that we would continue to the downside as there was nothing to stop price. Neither ES nor NQ had made this same downswing to LOD, thus...

6.14.19

Not a very boring day but devoid of setups. That V move was unusual and irritated me in a strange way.

I wanted to short the first test of 26110 and double top around 11am. As you can see, price...

Followed the Rules!

Good day of trading despite the lackluster result.

One trade today for little better than a break-even.

Break-Even

This is shaping up to be a Break-Even Week!

First trade was because ES reacted off of yesterday's close price which also had confluence from a few other harmonic factors.
Second trade was...

Boring day.... BUT I followed my rules!

Today was somewhat slow.

I watched one harmonic trade setup that ended up being a blow-out! I decided last week to not add harmonics to my trade plan until I become proficient with them. For that...

I think that is exactly right. I would hazard that many algorithmic trades are executed Market-on-Close which causes a surge of volume in the last few seconds of the cash session.

Nothing for me today. Saw one potential trade but believed that the trade "didn't have legs." I was correct. Trade was a winner albeit a small one. Not worth taking.
