volatility coming back in will step up time frames to account for noise as needed

trades today
1) +1.75
2) -2.50
3)-1.75
4)+2
5)+.50
6)+4.25

note: I do add more contracts if one directional move fails so it doesn't take as much to make up loss, also trades 2/3 price moved so fast on small time frame noise got me before I could adjust, hindsight you cant see speed

early am targets where 1416,1418, and 1424.75 these are if market has enough movement to get to these points, on retrace I use prior levels for support

Vwap, pivots etc are just here for reference, price action rules!!!!!!!!!! imo

done again for day since I set daily target rest of day is stress free, might come back and take a trade depends

Open up pc at 10:58 saw entry did 2 trades while taking care of other stuff, I knew market would be consolidating today so not to interested in playing ping-pong

trades
1) .50pts
2)1 pt

done for day 10:58-12:30 not to bad for the time invested

Goal for next week be active in markets more, still trying for good R2R (risk to reward) throwing around idea of trading for 6 pts a day min

Doesnt matter which bar type you use, areas of support/res is the same. You can look in downloads here on futures.io (formerly BMT) for BetterRenko bars they are similar to the Rjays Renko Hybrid that I am using, but I also use Tick,Min and Vol bars. I switch around to keep from getting bored

1)trade -1
2)trade +2
