No trade today

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.
