Going into pre-market tomorrow. This is my only game plan. Had a little typo there but too late to change it.

Mid-day update before going into the doldrum.

Last night's trade went 30 ticks in my favor before stopping me out for -16 ticks. If I was awake, the stop would have been moved to breakeven. But because this is an overnight trade when I cannot monitor, it is the risk that I am aware of and have readily assumed.


I'm in two positions now.

Not sure how to attach images...it crashes my browser every time I clicked on manage attachments.

Edit** yay it works now

EOD report.

One can assume Monday to be a slow day but today has been even slower. I'm thinking maybe due to tomorrow being May 1st? A short squeeze was anticipated at the 50% retracement which was where I entered long. Holding through today had been a real test of patience. Slow grind + slowly losing positing took its mental toll. The 61.8% proved to hold its position and we finally saw price climb towards the EOD. I will be holding my position into potentially filling today's gap tomorrow and towards target at 1408.

Euros first target is at 1.3253. However, I am thinking about aiming for the larger PT at 1.33 now that we saw participation at the 1.3217 50% retracement.

So far for the day, I'm in the red from last night's trade and my gains are still unrealized.

Going into pre-market tomorrow I don't have much to do besides trailing since I'm in two positions and cannot open anymore. I have moved my stop for /6E to breakeven and /ES stop remains unchanged.

Currently, /6E is at +17 ticks and /ES is at +2pts. Still small compared to what they will be if they hit their PT. Have to be patient with this one.

No problem Big Mike. I think the error was on my end. Everything is fine after I restarted the computer

My /ES trade from yesterday is finally doing something. There's a potential to add on a position.
