I know it seems insane, but I am CLOSED down 5 ticks on the day, trying to get positioned into a W5 potential

Well, the good news is that somehow I ended the day up. The bad news is list is much longer. But #1 on the list is that I scalped the long side, and #2 is that I can't recall looking at any of my new indicators, which never once said "up". I decided I was going for a w4 "preferred zone" and there was no talking me out of it. Maybe I get a C+ in risk management today, but that is as good as it gets.


And I hope I can hold some of these thoughts until I get back from a DRs appt.


I rely heavily on volume.

I get scalping tunnel vision.
