I am very distracted at the moment. I am not seeing the market clearly. Taking a break to get the distractions taken care of.

Robert

I would say there is nothing to see, market does not move at all.

Final stats for 5-13-13

I was really distracted this morning and could not 100% focus on trading. Ended the day on the positive side of the ledger with one trade +15 ticks. I followed my rules on the trade and quit trading when I realized I did not have the focus to continue.

Morning Charts for 5/14/13

Heading down on the weekly chart. - Broke out of overnight channel on the 15 minute chart but it looks weak at the moment. Currently in a range on the hourly chart. Came within 4 ticks of making a double bottom on the hourly chart. The fact that it didnt touch it could mean it will retest again. If CL breaks 9445 on the daily this would violate the trend line. Could mean we go lower from here.

Horrible day- Missed the opening trade. My entries were too precise which means they all reversed. Jing crashed again. I need to reboot my trading machine. I will post my charts later. Ended the day -25 ticks.

Final Results for 5/13/14
Busy night. First warm day of May and I Finally had time to do some yard work. So I was going to put some charts together for today's trades but decided to show just one. Individual charts would be out of context. Below are the results and chart

I made the mistake of trying to be too precise on my trades. Hindsight being 20/20 I should have went with my two trades I outlined in my morning report. Had I done that I would have probably ended positive for the day.

Trade1
Entry Type: Selll Stop below Trend Line.
Entered to early. Hard reversal -10 ticks

Trade2
Entry Type: Buy Stop above Resistance.
Trade failed to push higher. -2 ticks

Trade3
Entry type: Mistake.
I tried to cancel the order but was too late and ended up cancleing my targets and stops. Closed trade out. -3 ticks

Trade4
Entry Type: Sell Stop below trend line.
Entry was to close to the line. Touched my entry and reversed.
