K.I.S.S. Journal

Well here is the start of my journal. I first of all like to say I've spent most of this year trying all sorts of methodology...I loaned out about 50% of my account. So with that said, I now plan on keeping it simple!

I will use

1. Price Action
2. Pivot Points
3. Trend lines
4. Market Profile...POC, Value Area Hi, Lo
5. Volume


Here is today's action on the 6E today I had the trend lines established around 6:45. Missing several opportunity's to get short gave me confidence in the trend lines holding for the rest of the day.

Not a good Day today, slept in. Got to the office and the internet was down, finally got everything up about 9:30 pacific. So I took a look @ the 6E and was not to confident so I simulated the trade. Worked out but the markets were so weak! So next I took a look at the YM and didn't feel to good about that ether, but I am here to trade so I went short too soon, R2 was the trade (lack of patience)...I am watching it break threw POC right now....looks like its headed to VAL low

Good point, I'll remember that. Is this why the YM opened so low?

Don't know, but today and tomorrow are dangerous days to trade in my opinion. Best to start on Monday.

I am also watching cumulative delta looking for divergence setups like the one I took today. I have found on most of these setups that I am too early most of the time and have a hard time trusting them.

This journal looks promising. I trade in a similar fashion...

As for the delta divergence, it is my experience that they could easily outlast your trading account. Therefore I have not found them useful...

Thanks Lornz, I have tried to take what makes the most sense to me on Big Mikes...Now is the time to see if I can apply it.

I look at delta as a complement to price action. It for the most part has been confirming what I see in price action. I aggree its not worth basing any trade off of.
