After market replaying 6E last night, I really like the price movement compare to ES. Will sim trade it this morning between 9:00 am and 11:00 am (SOH for the 10:00 am news) and resume trading ES after that.

Note: Only 1 instrument at one time. See see I'm learning else the former aggressive me will try to manage two at the same time LOL!

I believe we had a valid Set Up bar (highlighted in ellipse). I just placed a Buy Stop at 1121.75 (1 tick above the HH of the past 5 bars incl the Set Up bar). Let's see if it may play out.

Note: If the Trade text (top left) changes to CHOP, I will cancel the order.

I use totally different indicators, but I think, yes it is a valid setup. Your chart does not show the open of the current session. I would have bought, after price retraced to the open, so a little bit later than you.

You can tell from the enclosed that my Buy Stop got filled. Then struggled a little before they filled my SL 6 as well. Then "might" have hit the first PT 4 (not 100% certain because of Bid/Ask). In short, one had a bigger SL (than mine) should have a profitable or BE trade when it did not look good anymore.

Thanks to Fat Tails for validating the entry!

It's too close to lunch .. sim practice is fine .. smile ..

Well, for one who has patience (+ a bigger SL cushion) would enjoy a profitable trade for the one I took around 11:40 am. 50 minutes in the trade!

I took one more trade minutes ago and am glad that it's closed profitably before 2:30 pm (bond closing - SOH).

Official record for ES: 2 Long -12 + 5 (1 winner and 1 loser) = -7 ticks before commission.

Hmm, I'm really tempted not to count the one close to noon LOL .. smile .. Consider having an educational 6E session in the morning, I'm done with my sim trading. Oh, no real trades as I'm getting myself more familiar with the set up.

Guess what I did during lunch break? I created a strategy capturing the EMA rules (be my eyes on some and I focus on a few IF successful). Will run it and see if the triggered signals work.

I got lucky and spotted a valid Long signal. Both contracts' PT @4 (did try to get 6 for the second one) and it's based on HH 1125.25 .. not sure if it might go higher after breaking 1124.25 (my entry price).

I'm thrilled to be back to the Green zone (8-7) 1 tick EOD though it's not enough to pay for commission. Will get better ..

Nelson just called and asked me how's my day. I told him it's very productive. Then he asked me when am I going to trade real? Oh, I hope soon. That's what I am going to do. I believe I have some months of 6E and ES data (Jun contract). If yes, I will market replay them this weekend to speed up my learning.

Some of you may recall my efforts in automating one of The Wizard's set ups in March. I do continue my automation efforts sideline .. Just created a BETA strategy based on Perry's Set Up (Method 1). It seems behaving normal. I just released it via Perry's thread hoping that it may benefit some members (at least as an audio alert):
