Taking a break from regular posting, mainly to read back and review my three month old journal for self feedback...though i had expected members feedback more valuable. In this short span, i definitely learned something that most valuable for me , don't know about others. I got many clues about my weaknesses and strengths during this and have got glimpse of my future trading methodology.

Hope you have enjoyed, will continue after a break.

Journal is first and foremost for yourself. I am glad to see you will review your posts. I believe it will be an eye opening experience, and you should learn a lot about yourself, strengths and weaknesses, and give you a good idea of how to move forward.

To maintain consistency of background context, so it should not feel "gap" after resuming normal posting,
will post in weekend or if something when it need a look.

Daily and Weekly
Though i do not trade Options now, especially my favorite writing, but i guess next week to have a dozy type development in strong
supply level before any next decisive move...so it can be exploit to eat premium.

Possible stopping point and lower 2nd SD.
this development might take shape of p instead of standard bell, given the old excess and context.

I like to detail a bit about my today's session execution. This is important for me as i am seeing these with improved approach that i came to experience during my look-back to journal activity. This, i am also posting as a check point for future reference.

Its late start and very small duration with one loosing Long.

Entry Decision Points :

a) With breach of prior low it had made day range in excess of 72 points.
b) FP showed sign of responsive activity in G1. ( Trade was entered in G1 itself )
c) Some references like PW-high, 2-Day combine VWAP and yday TPO VAH.

Stop :
Fixed stop of 10 points used.

Exit Decision Points :
None of exit decision points considered.

It was a simple trade for me, not emphasizing a single bit on PnL, what i want to point myself are

1) Thinking and taking a Long was in counter trend nature of day trend and despite clear down opening drive.

2) How i passed a creek short entry at bar marked 2. It was a normal decision in visible limited scope of further expanding the day range to down side. My evaluation of this was not "high probable"..."its just normal situation"...i said to myself.

3) Friday and today session were recording much greater range than ADR[5] and ADR[20], this factor was really
overlooked and i think the reason of stop out. When volatility is inching up then 10 point stop is useless. And that proved.

4) Should then a stop greater than 10 point was sufficient to prevent this ? - this is only one sided evaluation based on volatility. Actually here comes need of Exit Decision Points which would have better handled issue of stop also.

5) This entry turned like fade and early - nothing wrong in this - but again it need to see momentum would have easily delay the reversal. These fade entries have performed better in low volatility regime which has been one week ago. Better execution was then creek bar entry which took momentum on its side and better suited to this changing regime.

A gap down was imminent after political turmoil and yesterday holiday. Only was to visualize where it is most likely to open and if that level has potential to sustain. It opened near lower 2nd SD of running p shape development so far...little poised to sustain and provide a Long trade with higher odds of success locally.
