Price action Pivot Trading

Been a while since I've frequent this site due to busy work schedule. Lately, I was able to free up some time and began trading again. My trading method has changed considerably but the fundamentals never changed and that is price action. I wanted to chronicle my trade here for two purposes. One is to keep myself in check and two is to (hopefully) engage in meaningful conversation with like-minded traders in an effort to improve our trading.

I try to keep my trading as simple as possible. In the past, my performance degraded whenever I try to do too much. Now I've pretty much simplified it to a point that fits me perfectly. The main tools I used are:

- Moving Average (simply for trend direction and floating S/R)
- Pivot Point (my main tool)
- RSI (this is just to spot divergences)

My instrument of choice is /YM. Though I will sometimes trade /ES, /6A, /6B, or /6E.
Time frame is the 15M time frame.

Trading with the trend is a huge factor for me. 90% of my trade should be trading with the trend. I only counter trend trade if the set-up looks really good. I use 50 MA's to define trend.

The basis is to look for price action around pivot points in confluence with other factors (round numbers, fibs, etc) to make my trading decision.

All in all, I cherry pick my trades

Another trade I am currently in on 15min time frame.

Entered at 1579 shortly before the bar closed. The price action was strong towards the upside from this bounce.

dR1, fibs, MA, trend

Risk is 1:1 per usual with 3points

I'm a little hesitant about this potential short since I tend not to hold positions over the weekend.

engulfing + flag + fib + trend + 50's + S/R

hmmm

Saw an opportunity for another entry on the 15M time frame for /6A. I believe I will use this entry for my H1 trade. Lower the risk.
