Hi,

I started this journal for show my trading style to others. I'm and orderflow trader and i have been using this tecnique for several years. I'm learning every day and i think that show to others my style it can help and helping others will help myself. I'm only a trader surviving in this wilderness.

I apologize if i make some mistakes, but i'm from spain and often don't wirte in English.

Every day i'm looking to find where are the controls in the market. i'm looking for buyer control, or seller control. For locate this zones, i use ofav6 that plot this areas for me.
I use this areas for my entries zones and my stop is over 4-6 ticks. I find my targets looking at the oposite control. If i'm long i look for a seller control and i stablish my target in this area.

I will post my analisys for the day and what I'm thinking about it. I will began for this friday and my analysis from it.

My analisis for today.

The three lines that you can see are the previous high, low and close.
CV: seller control
CC: buyer control
AV: value area
RS: responsive sellers
I like specially the zones where two oposites controls find the same prices. I called it pivot zone, and i used it for enter at market.
This friday was and excellent day for show that.
I made three trades. Two winners and one in brake even. I attached and screenshoot with my analisys and entries.

My analisis for today

CN: neutral control

3 trades, 2 losers and 1 winner
result day: positive

I was finding a reversal in the low of friday. the last trade and winner was in the low of the day. a buyer control was establish. The problem was the hard zone up to this area, with a seller control and neutral (pivot zone)
The reason for take this trade was a buyer control, divergence of volume and a low volume area in the bid size from 1399 to 1402.
This winner trade was take it quickly without waiting to confirm de buyer control. This was a mistake. The problem to do that is that my entrie was a bad prices. if i wait i take better prices. i put my stop with 8 tics. Abnormal stop.
In the future i need to avoid this kind of entries without confirmation
Finally they run in the long direction. I'm out of the trade in 1402.25 sellers controls

Today, i made my first trade. Retest the accepted prices of yesterday, i try a long in 1401.75 but don't filled.
Before with a formation of pivot zone i try long again in 1404.5 and filled. First target out, and waiting. Now we are in the high of yesteray and the prices react at this zone.

My first operation was positive. I made 3 more. The first one was in the low in 1401.75 but i leave it and go out with 1 tick. But finally was a good trade. I miss it and my emotions was the problem. i was in a buyer control and in yesterday acceptance zone.
I try the second one in 1405.50 but my stop in 1406.75 with only 17 contracts was touched. The tird one was positive and the best for the day. I attached a photo with my entrie and targets done.

Hi,

Today we open above yesterday range. Fast move in the opening. I take a long with 2 contracts. The reason 2 neutral controls in the same prices, and volume stairs. The first target reach and the second two.
Good entrie and good result.
Below this double neutral control was and option for shorting the move, but above was for taking a long entrie.

I'm done for the day. I attached the screenshots of my analisis and entrie
