I worked for the brokers "again". At least I made enough ticks to pay for the commission LOL!

I had a strategy running and its trade (highlighted in ellipse) messed up my trade log a little.

No of Trades: 6 (all 1-contract trades)
No of Winner/Loser: 4 vs 2
No of Ticks before commission: 3

I dreamed about the systems I sim-traded and studied. Maybe it's a good idea to do a more in-depth analysis mapping them out incl what I like and what I don't like etc etc. Getting closer to one that I own and meet my trading style/expectation. It's on my to-do list this weekend.

Initial Balance: 623.10 - 617.20 (5.90 points)
Value Area as at 1035 am: 622.60 - 620.20 - 619.20 (3.40 points)
Price opened @620.80
Today's High and Low as at 10:35 am: 623.10 - 627.10 (matching IB)
VPOCs: Top 646.50 (622.30 was touched) and Bottom 612.80
Overnight High and Low: 622.20 and 612.90

It climbed up 6 points when most of us were zozozo. Then dropped a few points before climbing up again. It may as well keep doing the up and down until it decides to break the range.

My fingers couldn't help pressing 2 more times ... oooo ..

Confession: I prefer doing 2-3 trades/morning (or even 1) for 8-10 ticks as a start. Let me investigate ..

Just polluting your thread a little with my TF chart.

No market profile, just conventional wisdom.

For trading, I use the following trend filters:

- price versus opening range + opening range versus pivot range
- price versus VWAP of the session
- proprietary indicator (not shown)
- moving average of NYSE Tick (not shown)

Thanks Mike for your continued guidance and encouragement since Day One!

I almost forgot to tell you "I like your new profile photo." Let me borrow some of DavidR's wordings (hope he won't mind). It's a very cute photo of a couple of doggie characters! Smile.

I don't mind at all, but I didn't use the word "doggie".

Correction in good order: I just added "some of" to my earlier post. Thanks David.

Price currently trades at 626.30 (2 points above yesterday's Close @624.20). Can tell it's trying to go further up.

Overnight High and Low as at 9:00 am are 626.60 and 621.40 respectively.

Top VPOC 627.20
Bottom VPOC 612.80

Have a Successful day.
