Trade 1 : + 4 pts.

Its actually the entry point when adding to the winner.
But I was late to home and missed the first shorting opportunity.

My trading strategy :

Long - buy first dip above opening range
Short - sell first rally below opening range

Today I hesitated to sell short because price dropped very quickly and rallied very little.

I got first benefit out of public journal. It kept me from bottom fishing.
Bottom fishing and top picking has been my weakness.

Changed chart type to RENKO. It allow me to see swings better. It will be only change. As Big Mike recommends if you made changes keep it 20 day. In 20 day I can see will it be useful change or not.

One trade today + 2 pts.

Keeping process score. Things I will follow :

- Entries by plan
- Exits by plan
- Missed trades


There were 6 signals to open position.

Entries 5 / 5
Exits 5 / 4
Missed trades 1

Cost of mistakes 6 pts.
Result + 4 pts. ( 1 point = 4 ticks )
