Today I focused on experiments, trying different types of entry, including stop limits and limits. Stop limits get filled even on a fast move, I wonder if it is the same on T4 live Few traditional small trades. One good level fade trade, capped at 9 ticks, went over 20 into profit. Something I will be increasingly concentrated on. Stop loss was 3 ticks and it never had any drawdown! Limit entry!

Another low volume day, market is clearly waiting for NFP as it can mean that crowd will expect Fed either to cut stimulus or not to. This is all big joke but people love fairytales.

I worked on a different type of entry today. Pretty much the same but I tried to enter BEFORE the level. To ensure I won't get stopped on a reversal before the stops are triggered I was watching the market speed and Jigsaw signals and was ready to cancel the order. Ideally I would prefer to have a fading setup in place and break out setup in place and just cancel one as market closes depending on indications. I will look into that later.






PS my daughter was born today, I am happy!
