Stops at 91.86 are already blown... major players would have had that point as another "the where is here" moment. Short positions have built overnight. ES has tried to retrace at least part of a day's worth of hopium insanity.

Yesterday's value references are off the chart, 91.30 was prior TPO bracket low area, shorts are way in the money and it is Friday. Going to watch. Bernanke speaks this afternoon. ES has pulled back but could attract buying. Vwap heavy sloping down but price has come over $2 under Y close.

I thought about it, but have some bad memories of trying to stop crude oil from falling... lol! I remember times of doing that all day.

It gave a HVS bar, but I am just gunshy.

Just sitting here staring at the 240m chart, seeing the sell zone I set and the directional move after, knowing I took the swing in 2 contracts in my mind, pretend, one on each of two different days, avg probaly 94.60. And that I did not take that swing live. And it grates at me in the background. I am really not sure why it would, because I make the choice to be in or not. Or maybe, that is the reason it bothers me.

There needs to be an indicator that shows the relative strength of confidence in a trade, and flashes every time realtime action diverges with it.

I just made a new template in Sierra, called "REPLAY". What is shown in that workspace is only what is shown in the attached image. I hit "Go To Beginning of chart", scroll forward a day or two, and hit play at roughly 8am, at 10x to 50x speed.

I have intentionally removed all prices on the scale.

And without a lot of things I think I need, I am going to play this game this weekend. I am in a good space this and am going to let this run.

My friends who had a good week, congratulations, you worked hard for it.

My friends who didn't, shake it off, relax. Money isn't everything. You being happy is.

And all of you, live this weekend!!!!
