Two trades today on the ZN. One was +3 and one was +6.

The first trade I just got nervous and exited +3 with no reason, should have got my target of +8. Happens to all of us.

Second trade I just kept a real tight trailing stop, it got hit before the target got hit.

Today I had two ZN trades.

Trade 1: Long 117'140, 4 ticks
Trade 2: Long 118'100, 8 ticks

I've posted before my rules and talked about them in videos and etc.

The first trade hit a close trailing stop after being tapping the target for a while, second trade went on to full target.

Four trades today on the ZN.

Short 118'035: +4 ticks, it went 7 ticks and came back and hit my tight trailing stop.
Short 117'295: +2 ticks, I wasn't feeling good on this trade, got out.
Short 118'010: -2 tick loss, I got a bad entry, I jumped it. I managed my loss down from +7 ticks (was against me 6, my hard stop is 8) down to 2 tick stop and got out then when it came back and tapped me.
Short 118'050: +6 ticks, it came back and tapped my tight trailing stop.

Mike, on watching your video on "ZN 09-09 11 range chart: critical to scalpers" you mention that two indicators on the chart (i. e. your versions of Supertrend and LinRegScopeSFX) are available to your VIP members ONLY. So, can I join the VIP club ? What are the requirements ?

VIP members are those who donate money to support the site and offset the costs of me running the site.
