Ahhhh! Then "lol" ... but I deleted it.

No, not laughing... shameful, that I do not always allow myself to not care about the outcome.

Or rather, my mind argues that I have to care, in the fact that it is a goal, or maybe better, a focus. And yet not be hindered when it goes against me, not to allow that to change my opinion, no, position, the next time...

Where is the Smilie for this emotion?

The tightened stop worked against me. I had targeted 93.55, price hit 93.52 then rebounded...

The target had been set at just above a high-confluence zone. Possibly a little too close, but the target was hit. But now that zone sets up a long potential.

Today should be a wild one. Jobless Claims, PMI, Home Sales, Philly Fed, EIA, all on the back of FOMC and a high volatility move

Early buyers are defending the 93.50 top of the confluence area.

Net 38. Trading entirely from the long side, I had nearly every trade come back on me to some degree, would be up 30, close +10, up 22, close BE. It might seem like the easier thing would be to sell the market, but for me I prefer to have structure (today's was higher level) and I do not agree with going against high-level SR until it breaks, which today's did not.

I also often find it easier to read volume at a head-on collision than at a continuation. One of those things about trading where I give up one thing to have something else. High accuracy, lower profit, high profit, lower accuracy, etc.

Had I used 15-20 tick targets I would have done very well today, and I need to keep that in mind for the future. I noticed in an early post this morning I did expect a wild day, and it was.

The lower end of support did put up a fight, but there was too much fear in the equities market for CL to go any distance.
