GM!!!

Interesting to see the market rally over night when I was up and could not sleep.

I had two levels marked on the 15m and look how the market reacted when it reached those two white levels.

The white levels I marked yesterday are EoS off the 15m

3.655 looks like an interesting area to look for a long trade.

Its funny how at 1004 hr, I mentioned to the room, NG is dead, then it reacts to the downside and trading much lower!

I was fixated on the 60m and did not see the 15m 1100hr close of an extremely bearish candle that was the start to this break lower.

SL's I'm finding, the markets are reacting well off them. That's a boost to my confidence as a positive to take away from this.

I need to slow down as Mike said no need to panic.

240m trend line redrawn.

I need to take screen shots of when I assess market state and put down what I am looking at and thinking what moving forward as not seeing what the 1100 est close was on all time frames really hurt me.

[10:04 am] : this is the hardest part, markets we trade, do nothing and need to maintain that focus in case something does happen

That's what I typed in the chat room when the 1100 hr bar closed as the price was already breaking lower.

I'm thinking when I made the conclusion the market was going nowhere, I believed that and did not assess market state objectively but with a biased opinion. Not having that Yellow level drawn across the time frames played a factor in not seeing what the market was really doing.

I was so focused on doing candlestick math, I lost track of assessing highs and lows in relationship to each other and the close.

i made the mistake of "knowing" how the bar was gonna close at the top of the hour at 1000hr, when the bar actually closed, it was not what I had pictured and was caught off guard. I then proceeded to break silence and chat @ 1004hr, which further reduced my focus as NG was pretty much trading sideways for a good 2 hours since it opened. what I learned from this is to wait for the close and assess every time frame at the top of the hour as I was tunnel visioned in watching just one time frame. the other positive is the Significant Levels (SL) I've marked, the market has been reacting well off them, so thats boosting my confidence there.

Come to think about today, all I had to do was to keep my silence and not participate in chat and there was an entry with a break of 93-95, for a really low risk trade and huge reward!

I had 3.655 as a Revised End of Space target based off the single bar rule.

So my R:R ratio would have been 1:4.6
