And another thing I really like about Sierra is that the chart window shows live net PL, not just trade PL. It ties in with the "banked risk" thought.

And that stops and targets are always independently movable, and that they have lines that tie them together. Those lines are helping me visualize core position versus scalps.


Cool to me that I scalped right around my "core"

And the little yellow window at the top for trading without having the trade box open.

Or "symbol" which was tried once before. Damn lisp.

Off +30 on #2. Will wait for EIA. The high inventory levels are presumed discounted, not planning to look at the number, but have seen anything happen. I hope to some day work my way to holding through a number, but not today.

So you put F to the other side. When the day is over could you give your rationale? Wait, I think I just got it myself. Give me a chance to think on it before you answer. Price did not come down to it and find buyers, it came up through it as in the K period.

F period was the imbalanced TPO bracket and the remaining were balanced.
