Longed @ 5220.

I feel it made me off-tracked with too much defensive thinking.
Im restricting with this with full stop in this long unless structure calls me to quit before that.

I didnt updated this Short , just cause it was little psychologically tough and need concentration to execute today this when i got biased for cheap Long on start.

I was only trying to locate some excuse to go Long..L1 and L2 and some crappy divergence on FP....everything i wanted to work like that...down opening near completion of ATR...everything was so forcefully pushing me to think only Long. But on contrast i often remain aware of such things which looks promising and very natural dont work the way they should, and the work that looks very tough psychologically. So executed this small Short. Bar 1 formed, it was nearly good Short entry...but i still waited...i could wait easily cause i was not keen to take Short . Just one bar later Bar 2 formed and it was more better than 1...

I compare my Friday's Short , which i had to scratch for small loss, with today's Short. Though it cant be compared as simply black and white, but still i was pondering why first failed and today's worked.

1) Both were taken after substantial completion of ATR.
2) Both were same as per time.
3) Both dragged MAs such that a pending pullback were due towards larger MA. And friday got pulled really towards MA but today's went as expected.

What i see big difference in the two is overall location with respect to larger picture. Friday action was though on verge of getting imbalance but close to previous developed regions so prices got easily pulled towards that, but today's action got more towards imbalance and away from developed region , that was cause of success of today's Short.. IMO.

Nett result of day = +6 Pts after comm.

Was relatively late today at start.
At the EOD, i noticed a four step nice progression..its uncommon for me to see this in such small scale of 3 min, im sure this will help in future now to distinguish climax and continuation. There was also one more small one, prior and overlapping to my trade timing. I have a simple ( not always easy and correct ) rule to detect continuation in 4th step, that it start consuming time in one of 2nd SD of 3rd step.




There are another interesting development on larger scale worth monitoring...perhaps might post in sometime.

Today's candle is first penetration in old balance. Standard expectations in these cases are first VAL ( around 5080 ) and then Balance low ( around 5030 ). Its now on market how to fulfill this. LTZ near 5180 is good reference now.

I have a Long running since 5134. This is architect-ed on some situation filtered from last day's action...so not in hurry to get out...rather holding with some structural stop near/sub 5130 level. will discuss later.

Once again today's opening start with one single poor tick @ 5112....which is giving false visual of strong Open Drive.
Regular next ticks start around 5132 lvl.
