Almost all daylight hours spent with gas engineer and plumber, single scalp for +16T, that's it.

scruffy session

Wasted morning session, clearly out of focus, still distracted by other domestics (hidden leaks in large old heating system, nightmare). Kicked off with 4 straight losers, worked butt off to get back to 6 losers, 5 winners for net -40T. Basically caught with pants down playing in the noise again, not taking the couple of decent setups that were there and manufacturing tosh out of frustration instead. No change there then. Awaiting gas engineer once more.

Growing awareness that when I kick off poorly the inverse R/R on the scalps really bites hard. Sort myself out, switch tactics or both required at this stage.

long term support for life

ES support was successfully retested and held as advertised at 1750, short hwb broken so consolidation continues. Still looks like bulls have 1730, 1708, 1640, with corresponding do or die spots underneath, but will need validation. Target 1784 for now unless it needs weekly or lower support first.

No trades this morning, spent most of the night in the local hospital ITU watching high technology graphs of heart and kidney failure - a different kind of life rhythm, with its own cycles, waves and corrections. Can't think of any good bonfire-night mother-in-law jokes though, but at least the central heating is improving with new pressure valves fitted.

I have one: "Don't mix up the heart-beat chart with your ES chart - looking at stops and targets"

Good trades!

No trading. No mix-up. Mother-in-law took a full stop-out this morning and all her charts went to zero. I will never know if she broke any barriers and traded a pullback to a confirmed target or not. Sometimes we manage it and progress and sometimes our lives just drift aimlessly up and down. Best wishes to you my friend.

Euro backing off from weekly resistance, it's been running in extensions so a full pullback to 1.33 wouldn't be unexpected:

Sorry for your loss @ratfink. I hope your wife is doing OK.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
