That DB this morn on 5 min had a nice .50% retrace too and if you look farther to the left, it sits on the .14.


It filled the pending orders of suckers first though on that second leg of DB before it took off

Good trading to you

Yep, that was a nice entry right at the pit open.

Slow day today. I'm sitting in a long at 92.66, looking for 93.11, which is just over the overnight highs.
took 1/2 off at 92.82 in case we don't get through highs.
Rest off at 92.72.

Avg gain: +11ticks

Didn't do much else today. Had a few quick scalps in the afternoon range. That never went anywhere. I was out by the close, so didn't participate in the upside move.

A brief update:
I have decided to prepare for the TST combine. I had been trading an underfunded account, and it affected my trade management and psychology negatively. I will still post post trading day summaries here, along with thoughts and comments about the day.

From now on, until further notice, all trades in this journal are SIM.

Plan your trade, trade your plan.

@kisskais I trade a discretionary system. The essence is decoding price action to identify low risk areas for entry and also identify price targets. I do this via fib retracements as taught by David Halsey. I also use the ACD method taugh by Mark Fisher to give context to the day and manage expectations. I also have picked up bits and pieces from the many great trades here as well.

Plan your trade, trade your plan.
