One and done

Today I overslept, pretty tired from fighting this ear infection. Its turned into a sinus infection and i am having a hard time breathing which makes me pretty tired. So I slept a long time last night....I guess I needed it.

Got to the chart around 6:45AM, price had just broken the levels from the overnight down trend and a counter trend long set up. I entered, let it go and trailed out when the long structure failed. Of course there was more in it but how I view price said it was time to get out, so I did.

There was a real short signal soon after, however I didn't take it. I'm happy getting it right once or twice a day, and this was it for me.

The short would have either stopped out, had a scale out if you do that or perhaps a BE depending on how you manage your trades.

i draw the line where it makes sense. But in general, I try to catch the wicks and tails. I have found for my purposes, there was buying or selling there so may as well capture it.

Further, I am refining a bit where I start the trend line. I've not fully worked this out yet so no commentary yet but suffice to say, it has to do with support and resistance and the points where they fail. More to come if it has merit.

Two words: Neti Pot... will clear out that sinus infection like no other meds will and it's natural.... 10 bucks at CVS... best 10 bucks you'll ever spend...trust me.

Brian, I'd also recommend getting something like this for your office and bedroom. It has helped me, and Texas isn't as dry as Arizona.

Amazon.com: Heaven Fresh HF 707 Digital Ultrasonic Cool and Warm Mist Humidifier and Ionizer - with Remote Control: Home & Kitchen

I like mine a lot. Auto on/off, warm and cool mist options, and permanent water filter to help reduce 'white dust' from settling on furniture. Only problem is that it only works for a pretty small room, it stays on 24/7 here at my house.

When I first turned mine on, the humidity was around 20%. Very low, and I have very dry skin and lots of allergy problems.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
