See if Dax can defend the lows, long binary 20 at 8260 to be above 8264



Sweet! Closed for +35 points (bought 40 sold 75.)

Looks like 8240/8250 has the decision for now.

No trades for me so far today, often not on a Monday and particularly after only half a night's sleep. Better now after a kip. (old age, I know, probably why I was in negative time space too....)

Love having @vvhg 's T&S on-board now, sweet indeed. Thank you.

I am happy with my first foray into the journal last week, I have realized that if I don't have time to post what I'm thinking when I take a trade then I'm probably not thinking. Although it is clear to me that much of my approach does rely on 'feel', it has to be intuitive based on the patterns presented on several dimensions and not reactive and emotional. We shall see.

Have resolved to journal the binary option account as well as the main trade account, seems more in keeping with treating the game as the serious job that it is rather than having half as a playpit where I can excuse myself dumb trades more easily. Focus. Focus. Focus.

Travel Well

ES still inside a pair of inside days last week, above 1628 could be squeezy, below 1620 could be very different...., usual fakeout caveats of course.

Short cash Dax at 8322 stop 8242. (0.786 of drop from Fri high, reasonably looking 5dn, 3 up,) doesn't feel like a great trade though due to the high level of support still in ES.



edit: stop lowered to 8332, above consol could run much more so don't need wider.
edit2: stopped for -10.

Long 20 min binary, opened @35 closed at @65



Edit: Its now holding 95 easily, but of course Mr Revenge trader was short on patience. Need to update self-psycho in log.

Ok yesterday no sleep so we didn't trade but just watched a handful of great setups go to successful completion (trigger pulling blocked due to self-imposed tiredness rule.) Frustration index rising.
Today, oversleep instead, plus errands to run and appointments, frustration index definitely warm to hot, watch a couple more good setups, feel the real 'fear' of pulling the trigger and can't, since obviously if the one's we watch 'work' when we don't pull the trigger then obviously the one's when we do will fail....
And throw a rule break stop move in for good measure. But at least I knew it didn't 'feel' right.
Still at least a quick-off-the-draw option can re-light the candle.
Trading. Yeah, Right.
