On the topic of not thinking about the money, the Chart Trader negative $210 is where it keeps sticking in my head. That is frlom trading 4 contracts, so really nothing as I thought about a trade and then dropped it 2x already, really roughly 5 ticks, but it is still an interesting thing to overcome.

Indeed!

I don't use fixed time bars; but a nice doji/inverted hammer top (very short timeframe 1m).

Have a purposeful trading day!

peace

I am ignoring the inside wave. No, not ignoring, actually very aware of it. But for fibs. It does not show on the 120 minute. We have a range bound market, possible DT.

Fading is my least favorite activity on higher size. Still flat...

Yes, I am just sitting. The euro may let go, the conditions are building for it. But in conflict of that, ES 1333-1335 has a target on it's back.
