Pivotal box trading journal

I will start to log my trading on a daily basis from next week. I will day trade/scalp 1-2 contracts, mostly EURO or ES.

Summary:

Use my own proprietary system developed in NT 7.
Define 3 entry points. 1st, 2nd, 3rd buy or short.
Target 500-1000 daily.

Tonight market is slow but managed trade a few 6e

my favorite is 6E not ES because I like it better since I have 24 hr trading opportunity. Day trading or scalping does not mean that I have to get in and out all the time. but trading setup presents 1-2 times on daily basis for intra-day swing and can hold a few hours based on my statistical study.

Blind men and an elephant

this is basically my impression that any TA and trading setups and this will lead to pure probability trading.

However, there maybe just maybe better trading system and philosophy.

the chart

This is how i will enter long by identifying 3 possible entries. although it might look like Elliot wave, this is not Elliot wave by the way.

EURO 30 min good long entry might be coming

prediction is not the basis of trading but I still anticipate this price movement scenario.

11/21/11 trades


current closed trades PNL at 973
but I have 2 long contracts on 6e at 1.3508 and current quote is 1.3475

I found it almost true to me when I want to hold a position for a good swing instead of scalping, I could end in losing money.

On 30 min chart of 6e and dollar index, I still hold that there could be a good up run for euro.
