Nice fib fakeout on this one.

To be honest, I've never been a big fib fan. I guess price often does retrace 61.8% but I believe it's not because of some magical ratio but rather everyone has the fib levels on their charts.

I consider the 7-11 more of a scalp in that it did not include a runner. I've been using a +10 target lately, with a 15 point stop. But this is still a work in progress. (YM)

Did you check out the excel spreadsheet that cunparis posted? If not I would highly recommend it as it will give you a long term prospective of what daily consistency will do for you. I believe that the best trades in the indexes occur at certain times of day. Note these times and focus on these set ups.

A R/R that is greater than 1:1 is ok as long as your winning percentage is high enough to justify it.

I think you are on the right path.....keep it up.

Do you have a daily "tilt" number in your plan? It is as important as your daily goal.

Jeff

My daily tilt is 3 losing trades.

Time of day

Notice the time that trades set up in the indexes. This happens almost everyday. Even though today was a consolidation day and therefore very much a ranging market trades set up on the half hour as usual. These are the times that I look for trades to set up.

Jeff you are making it tooooo easy. Thanks for all the work on and for sharing the dots they work pretty well. Weird how sometimes one little visual thing can bring order to chaos.... or give you that extra confirmation.

a set up with slower "dots"

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



A setup with faster "dots". Any sling shot/wave traders...? Once you set up the dots with the right slingshot then you just take the retracements when you get a colored dot the same as the slingshot... nice
