Traded today took 1 trade short at the open and was done for the day. Slight change of plans instead of trading full size from april 14 going to start at may 1 [ trading with higher lots, default from last year]. Need to get little more screen time before i start.

Tried taking a longer term play at the open just market was in no mood then to give a follow through [it did go up afterwards just it needed a detour first]. I was fine with it took a short on the breakout and hold on to it till yesterday's low and also major support from higher time frame. Done for the day with that single trade.

Longer term play's are very interesting and could help in day trading a lot if you know to sync them .. Here are two longer term plays which i am looking at , right now we are in range as marked in the chart yesterday and today's low is a 23/50 retracement zone on higher time frame which is significant .. for market to move lower we need to break that low if we do then we are heading at the minimum to 94.60 or 93.70. on the upside its little tricky as its packed with resistance but if we do break then 98.30/99.50 are the next stops. Lets see what we can get out of this ..

may is coming and i am planning to go live for this year ... as i said earlier i had an minor detour at the start and i tried to change many things which i should not have , back to basics for me back thats taking 1-2 setups a day.

Daily target - 20 ticks.
daily loss - 40 ticks [Hard stop]
Overall target - 2500 ticks.
Instrument- Crude Primary. Secondary - Euro , Es
Setups - Primary [Trend setup A ]. Secondary [Resistance play through higher trend]

Basically i just want to go back to normal days like last few years trading whole session is not for me trading without a daily target is not for me my normal days are simple trade for an hour get your daily goals then relax and watch the markets that's what i am going to do should have done 1st place .. but that's all past . new session is coming and coming fast .. Let's see how this goes..
