1000 tick chart....

Uptrend obviously.... a break of that level should be a good sign for the downside. But, who knows.... will let it play out as it will.

Kinda hope not, or at least that it doesn't make a third high. If it does, that will take me out of this one.

Has come within a few ticks of doing that already, but as always, will let it play out as it will. Hindsight, entry was poor, but that is where the entry was for me. Key thing I have learned over the years is stick to the plan, or rather, the original reason for entering a trade. No panicking! (at least not too much)

And a Mini-Me channel

I used to use channels, trend lines, triangles, pennants, etc, and found it was way too easy to fit what I wanted to see into them. Please keep in mind I am not bashing these patterns by any means - they do exist, they do have significance, and there are many great traders that use them with incredible success. I just know myself well enough to know I will find what I WANT to see when in a trade, so I use them as a reinforcement of the other things I am seeing.

Out 93.92

Long and drawn out, and not the exact result I was looking for, but I will take it.

Long pattern at the bottom there, but the last low I marked up breached the low just prior to that one, so no go on that one.

Took a very stupid long about 30 mins ago (no confirmation) that smacked me for -13. Now in a short from 93.58.

Focusing on not making any more dumb mistakes..... charts later.

First, found out that trading and trying to post "real time" is not an easy, or recommended thing to do.

Took what I would call a bad trade late morning that I shouldn't have.... not going to blame it on posting, just a mistake.

Overall, this day was a very very tough one for me. 6 trades is wayyyy more than what I normally like to have to get to end my day, but, after yesterday, I suppose it was expected.

Trades

Short -20 Did not take this one, but should have if I had started my day at the normal time, so I am including it.
Long -22 Just one that turned, nothing to be done on this one.
Short +18 Gave back a WHOLE lot on this one, but still turned out positive.
Long -13 Just a careless trade - could have turned out much worse.
Short +40 Finally.
Short +50 And done....

+53 total (+73 for missing the first loss of the day) - I'll take it

Didn't like the draw down today, but actually, kind of glad it was not what I would consider a good day, since I was trying to journal everything as it was happening.

Not really sure if anyone was following along today, or if it served any purpose for anyone other than me, but there it is. Hope everyone had a good day trading.
