A list of things that rose to the top of my list of requirements last night. No system, no required indicators, no probabilities or expectancies or win %. That stuff is also important, but the things above are more important to me.

So at this point, would we be expecting a test of the NPOC, or expecting balancing for the remainder?

Volume can barely break 500, so it is a tough call for me

I would expect some version of balancing given the 1) potential major pivot in the 89.30 area, 2) Friday with additional media about potential conflicts in Iran.

But I would wait for volume to suggest where, and I may not get that until later

Something I said in a conversation last night;

" "Banked Risk" hit me like a truck. Interesting concept. I can scalp very well most days, but shy away from it for many reasons. Too scattered, trigger happy, risk to reward, knowing that overall I do better with "wins greater than losses. Look at my percentage wins, usualy not exceptional, but overall I do well at Max Win vs Max Loss, and Profit factor. The scalping is a slow grind."

I left the input page of the spreadsheet so copy and paste is a no brainer out of NT standard reporting, but then called on that data from a 2nd sheet so I could get some clutter out of the way and group things in a way that I would prefer to see them. I added a 4 week average, and will do additional averages as I go forward.

I want to compare the week's performance to an average (not the prior week), identify specific areas I want to focus on in the coming week (this week's highlighted in yellow again).
