Current position. Well balanced day, fading the lower end of the range with this long.

You can see where my stop is. Target is upper end of consolidation.

Slight addition to the plan... just in case the TL holds.

Also, you can see stop is now at BE@ .11

Glad with the mid-flight adjustment!

Remainder scratched, given strength of sellers off the TL.

I took a short pullback trade, it went in my favor a good bit, but turned around and got me at BE. Now, same setup as before. Even better chances of it working now.

Mostly through with this trade. 1 lot left on to see what it can do. My expectation is for the RTH highs in the 60's to hold, but I am not right very often, so we'll just let price tell me what it's doing. I'll trail below swing lows on the 250tick until proven wrong.

And that is that. Sharp sellers print across those highs, i'm out.



Trade well executed, with a proper mindset. Check.

Today went quite well, psychologically speaking. I did a really good job of staying in the "now moment opportunity flow". A session like today, with practically no winning trades until the end, would typically have really frustrated me. I didn't feel frustrated at all today. I'm not over the hump entirely, probably far from it, but I can see improvements; and that is all I can ask for.

Here's the trade analyzer with today's trades.... ignore the first trade, it was a crazy fill thing and is not accurate. A data issue.





I really don't have much to say about today's trading in itself. It was a business as usual kind of day. A grind for most of the day until a nice winner at the end.

Here's something I've noticed so far in reviewing my trades for the week.

I took almost 70 trades this week. Get ready: Only 7 of the 70 trades had MFE's greater than 20 ticks.... this. blows. my. mind.

In today's session alone... during the time I was trading.... CL moved a new directional 20+ tick swing EIGHTEEN TIMES... just today. And I've managed to capture 7 of them in 70 attempts this week????????

Merritt, a glance at your MFE vs your actual exit is a bit concerning. Are you all in/all out or are you scaling out? I'm still trying to get used to reading the S5 analyzer report, trying to remember what FT71 said about the BSO column.

I'm sure you've done research in this area to determine what your optimal targets should be?
