30 min ES for the week

blue dot is shake out zone, so we waited for 2nd setup to try our entry

trade is up 49% in 6 weeks -10k is now 14.9 k

when we hit 20k -we will increase size to 2 lots

we are also cherry picking do to the flatness of the moves and if you notice the blue dot shake out area matches the closing zone are of friday 8/31

this trade is currently FLAT

@creekboy
I'm glad you have a system that works for you - I'm still working on mine -- but I think I'm too ambitious

30 MIN ES UPDATE

POSITION is up currently 62 % in 7 weeks - i used good judgement i hope in flattening todays move at 1429 even though our long term target is at the 1443 level -
10k start sitting at 16200
