15m neutral

Edit: I forgot to do candlestick math here, that one little doji does not mean shit in the bigger picture. In hindsight, should have been a very bullish assessment, not what I originally stated.

I also let small time frame Space cloud my judgement, just cause there is Space, does not mean there is a trade. Not to mention its a 5m chart.

Top of the hour assessment

15m neutral to slightly bullish

60m very bullish

240m very billish

Daily very bullish

and here I am short!

Not looking good for me at this point.

Edit: with this assessment, the 15m did not close below that 3.651 weekly level, which is significant. My inconsistency is starting to show again, I need to remember to wait for the 15m to close and then decide if I want to trade, not the 5m.

Stopped out, I let a really small time frame pattern suck me into the trade as the bigger picture was all pointing higher.

The other mistake I made was not waiting for a 15m close to confirm as I entered intra bar.

Ooops, I forgot to do the 1030 assessment, was chatting cause audio went down.

I am thinking I need to change the way I do my assessment at every 15m. Go from top down, its gonna be a lot more work, but once again, I let a small time frame cloud my judgement.

Daily very bullish

240m very bullish

60m moderately bullish

15m neutral

Once again, the market is reacting well to a level I've got marked.

My weak point is still price action assessment. Finding levels to trade off of or to watch is not an issue for me.

Daily Moderately bullish

240m slightly bullish

60m neutral

15m very bearish

Potential reversal setting up?

CTD Office Hour is about to start to this will be my last entry while I am in class.

Edit: Mike said to omit the "potential reversal" comment out for future reference as he's right, it paints a picture in my head of something that may not happen and I miss out on what is actually happening.
