Closed, looking to re-enter


It was testing the edge of RTH value. Could have targeted VWAP, but...








I would be just as likely to sell this here as buy. But it has not said which to do yet.



There are the sellers coming in. Possibly algos.




That is ETH. On RTH we are right on VWAP, and on TPO we are right on POC





On the 180m 95.92 is a key price to watch.

Bought the stop run for a quick 20 ticks. Still seeing if sellers are still interested up here.



There they are, but this area is tricky for me now. Going to watch.





I would just about kill for vvscreenshot right now.

I missed that trade, Keep getting phone calls today. Damn job... Don't they understand that I have some whispering to do? lol


But the sellers were still there. Pushed price right back to RTH value.






They came up and tested this NPOC.

Not interested in this area, net 116. Going to talk with my wife...


EDIT: 1:37pm, I may sell this around 96.22, would already be short, but cumulative delta (numbers in black area at bottom of chart) has been slowly rising all day and price is so floaty right now. Watching to see if anyone is willing to join me.

Another phone call kept me off an earlier entry, but grabbed another 19 as price crossed RTH value



My exit was 19 instead of 20 due to my late entry combined with the edge of RTH value being 95.76
