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.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

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.
