This was still written on my chart from Thursday. I did not add these lines or words b4 I posted this.
Yes @josh the screen shots I show in my journal of the trades I took are scrunched up. However.... I do take a top down approach every morning and draw my lines in on the charts. For instance.

60 min view. Lines are drawn based on high volume s/r.

@greenr trade Friday morning. This was I was looking at.
I see your point though.. Yeah I draw in those lines but I think I still lose that perspective when I am only looking at a 3hour stretch.
I need to do a better job of looking at the bigger picture.

Hide anything that shows your account number, then post a "PRINT SCREEN" image to show exactly what your layout looks like while you are trading.

Some wise trader once said to me, "There are no magic bar patterns to enter off of, there are only areas to enter with risk management. Better traders can use volume, order flow, the foot print chart, or whatever as a secondary confirmation, but they only do that at an area that they want to put a trade on in."


I must have been channeling someone smart.

Starting a new summary view for my trade reports, something simple that takes the direct NT export with a few added ratios and general commentary instead of trade-by-trade. Hope to generate some additional info out of this with moving averages as I gather more weeks of data.

Price had come down into deep support, this time being a cocktail of some favorite numbers; Major 618, Major trendline, Major pivot area, and XFib2, all within a 30 cent range. The only thing more I could have asked for was the exact mindset I neeeded in that moment. I bought around 89.45ish, then jumped out to think. I was not looking for a long distance trade, I was looking to get positive on the day. I know the saying, "Be careful what you ask for", but had momentary amnesia from being shaken too hard.

I have been stalking a reversal for at least a week now, 5 entries today, all from the long side.

I have stared at every version of this chart I can come up with. I get nothing. I don't mind deciding I don't like it, but just wish I could determine why. Not understanding it is not the same...

Going to bed. Feeling very comfortable with trading, discussing trading. The trade desk in the middle of the house is ideal for me. Share, live, invite friends to participate, or just watch on a Friday. My relationship with trading is coming back to full fire without intention.

I'm not sure about this post.

Documenting that this is what I am staring at tonight. Drwaing lines, then erasing them and starting over. Or drawing too many and leaving them all there for awhile. Watching them live get hit, or not, and how they react. If there is no certainty, I'd better be aware.

Market Profile is like support and resistance in high speed. It forms as you watch it.
