The charts remain the same for the most part. I mostly just took out stuff that are redundant and don't need.

Back after a hiatus. Spent the past month in the L2ST room learning Kam's way of reading the markets through AMT. Again, learned a lot and will be back in his room next year after I complete my move back to the states.

I didn't trade Monday's session.

Tuesday's (11/27) plan is below. Glad I stuck to my plan. I got in one trade with three lots. All targets hit.

This was the plan for 11/28...I took two trades trying to fade back into recent developing value. I was stopped out on both tries.

A chart showing my trades for the day. Both were losses, however I stuck to the trading plan and the risk mgmt plan.

Took one trade in the afternoon. Met all of my targets.

I decided to take off the 1415.50 level due to the fact that it was a HVN and the developing VPOC.

Interesting to see the market reactions at all of my "areas of business" (which all happen to be LVNs). Even though there were market reactions earlier in the day, I wasn't seeing the delta divergences that would give me the confidence to enter into the market. It was a serious test of patience and discipline seeing the market move on without me. Glad I stuck to my plan, as it paid off in the end.

I took one trade in the morning that was in one of my areas of business. It didn't get all the way into my buy zone. I would have been more comfortable had price made it to 1411.50, but it was close enough and I had delta divergence with order flow showing me that buyers were stepping in and taking over price. I decided to put in 2 contracts instead of three, mainly because I was trying to manage risk, seeing that price could have moved lower into my buy zone.

Here are my visions for the day. Gonna keep an eye out for delta divergences in my areas of business. If nothing happens, then I just sit on hands and do nothing.

Two trades today, both losers, but kept it under my stop loss for the day.

The first trade could have been avoided had I been more patient (hindsight is 20/20). The delta divergence was fairly weak. However, order flow was showing that the sellers were starting to overpower the buyers in my area of business. Psychologically I was afraid of missing out on the trade. I have to learn to be more patient with weaker divergences and enter in on trades that show clearer signs of reversals.

The second trade, I got tagged on my stop loss. Price then immediately turned around and went into my intended direction. Unfortunately it's just one of those things that happen in the market sometimes (or so I hear). I wanted to enter back in to catch the ride, but I was at my stop for the day. Frustrating to see it move, however glad I stuck to my risk mgmt plan, as I know it will save my @$$ in the long run.
