Got here late. So I entered in at 62 for 8 tix. I reversed to the short at 64 too. This was too choppy for me. I didn't like this trade but I hung in there bc creaker said the ad was at a -10. and did another reverse at 61.75 long.

61.75 long and got out at 63.25. I didn't get back in this time because i was too deep in for my 7 tick max loss.
It's raining here all night and all day. Puppy is hyyyypppperrrr.

Yesterday Ninja crashed on open bc of bad indicator I added it was not one of creekboys so i didnt get charts up correctly, and chop at end of day and not understanding rules I had real bad day live, today understanding rules better and tweaked setup a little, running two different time frame Ma one is shown other is same one Creek runs... Today is ALOT smoother, thx Creekboy

Also added 3 rd ma that shades between short and long ma so its adds a quick reference for 50% of other ma's on bigger moves. and I use 6 tick target box but stop is 1 tick below high or low so its still 7 tick i just do it a little differently
