... Als stuff is hard. It takes lots of time to process. You can join his room for free for a couple of days and hear how he does it live. Also big mike has done a good job on the elusive price action thread of explaining HH and HL stuff. Have fun.

Thanks trippen for the additional tips. Yes, Big Mike's videos are Great! He definitely did a great job in clearing up my HH/HL myth. Thanks again Big Mike!

Beth, btw good job on your futures.io (formerly BMT) photo albums, I think it's great and I really encourage the community participation with such things.

Also people can use this to store "setups" or trading related screen shots, too. Just throwing ideas out there.

Mike

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

My Price Action (PA) Learning


As of this moment, I have come across the following PA set-ups:

1. HH and HL - when price breaks the earlier HH - go long / LL and LH - when price breaks the earlier LL - go short (3)

2. DT (Double Top) - when price breaks DT - go long / DB (Double Bottom) - when price breaks DB - go short (1)

3. 1-2-3 Top or Bottom Reversal (2)

I rated their probability of success in ()strictly based on my instinct and nothing else. Appreciate additional tips/ideas/comments to enhance my PA learning. Thank you!

5 May Wed Trading Morning $57.50 after commission (back to MP)

It's another baby Green morning. I did a 1-contract one because my earlier attempts (at better prices) did not get filled. It's another Open Drive "down" morning and I was unable to identify a short entry based on Perry's 4-Range set-up. When the Lower VPOC 1161 got touched (no rejection), I spent some minutes to locate the next one. Should have it handy - lesson learned.

The next VPOC is 1154 and price went close enough to touch it @1154.75. Considering the time lost in finding it, I missed entering a long at a more favorable price. Actually my first long attempt was around 1157.50, then 1158 .. ..

At the time of writing, it's moved back to the previous day's value area (2nd 30-minute bracket). It may try to get as far as up to the Top VPOC (also yesterday's POC) at 1170.75 or simply trade within today's IB (it's over 10-point range). Well, just my expectation and forecast LOL!

Goals Accomplished:

1. Followed the Trade Plan (back to MP and Perry's set-up).
2. No Over-trade.

Confession: I did look at an ES Naked chart for price action occasionally .. haha ..

Have a Great day.

Beth (Thanks Mike for including a Photo Album link to his post. You are welcome to have glimpses of 2 "big" kids who are always young at heart .. smile ..)

Post-Trading Realization

Instead of finding the next VPOC, I could have traded with the Initiative Selling since no rejection and no responsive buyers on the drop!! It's just too early and I prefer having the first 10 minutes getting a feel ... Well, Perry's set-up did have a great short aligning with the MP Gaps Initiative Selling trade set-up (first big blue ellipse).

ES Trades based on Price Action

Funny that we had an Open Drive down pre and during market open, yet I can only identify long trades on the enclosed .. based on my limited PA knowledge!?

When I checked them against Perry's 4-Range set-up, both aligned.

Continue enjoying your day.

Beth (I will do market replay on CL later today.)

Try labeling the LH and the HL also in this chart, it should give you more clarity

Another MP Practice


ES went all the way up to the Top VPOC (also yesterday's POC) at 1170.75 with acceptance. Then proceeded to yesterday's VAH @1173.75 and stopped at 1173 with more selling.

I practised my MP set-up (Fade the Extremes) and sold 2 @1170.75 (tried higher price and did not get filled). It's lunch time and more uncertainty I've found. Got the first PT 4 ticks and tried to realize more with the second contract. It touched 1169.25 (my second PT) a few times without filling me. I moved SL to a tick in my favor and closed with another 4 ticks profit.

Done with my MP practice for the day. It's not an official sim trade LOL!

I'm glad that I have started seeing more in view of my limited exposure and knowledge. Well, I don't need to trade a lot .. a few high probability trades or even one will be Great!!

Beth
