Posted for a friend. I did not sell it, I bought 107.61, exitted RTH VWAP, as the market compares current value to last week. Currently flat again and more interested in being open to what the market says about price.

I wanted to see what happened at Friday's TPO POC 107.55. The two charts above show two ways to look at absorbtion.

You never KNOW, but since Monday is overwhelmingly my worst day in the past, I am trying to not go with the flow on Monday, but trying to feel out if prior value is still relevant. Trading very lightly, might even be done for the morning.

Hi @GaryD, I hope you are enjoying your much deserved break from journaling.

I thought about you when looking at the chart today. Today CL opened at the prior 6-day balance VPOC, drove up into the more recent 3-day balance, found support at its low, and then completed its journey to the upper VPOC. I am posting this because I check in on various markets other than mine from time to time and find it quite amazing that the basic behavior of most markets is the same. I'm not saying that this example is going to happen every day, but it is hard for me to see a market without seeing value overlaid on it, even if only in my mind. And I think about how you came across similar ways of expanding your trading horizons and how much it seems to have benefited your trading, and I think it's awesome. Happy trading Gary!

Yes, opened at the NPOC, open drive, it was long only until it got into the prior POC area around 107.25-.30. I am beginning to see a lot of predictable behavior related to that way of looking at it.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
