I just realized after drawing in a trend line, how different the picture would look from the short I took this morning.

Could say its a piercing trend line trade and the correct side to trade from was long.

There is (much) more to the market than trendlines.

Also when I read your comments it seems you are focused on "the trees" and unable to see "the forest".

Just something to consider...

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)

That's always been a problem with my assessment of the market, I sometimes see the forest, but then might miss out on a tree, and when I focus on the tree, I miss the forest.

Its something I am aware of and work on it everyday. Its just finding the right balance and right now, these are the concepts I am learning from the Course.

I've talked with Mike and he said not to panic as the first 10 weeks of the 20 week course is focused on concepts. Once I tried to apply their first Junior level strategy, I was freaking lost cause I thought I knew the basics. How wrong I was. There's like a checklist just to take a trend line trade, which is why I am emphasizing the missed trend lines from today as stated as their is a "piercing trend line" trade setup they teach.

Pit closed.

Its funny, what I am experiencing is not a linear progression of my comprehension and application of the concepts, its left turn, right turn, 2 steps back, 1 step forward, 180, all over the place.

Its discouraging none the less, this part sucks and when I get past this, it gets easier, I've been down this path before with my other issues. This is not any different.

At least now, moving forward, I know what to focus on again.

Just wait till Gann levels and extension start getting introduced and put into the mix.

Seriously am drinking from a fire hose when I think about it.

Ice Cream!!!

Now that I have a better understanding of the concepts being taught, I "jumped" ahead to see what the "Ice Cream" Trade setup is all about and I found one in the NG on a 60m chart.

Pretty interesting stuff they are teaching.

I thought the Piercing Trend Line Trade was good, this "I dropped my Ice Cream" is even better!

GM!

No clean space prior to the break so I was not looking for a trade to the short side.

Now there is space to the upside, from this break.

Come to think about it, there is simple space on the 240, I was not focused this morning for the first 15m when I got to the computer by 0915hr

Come to think about it, I was looking for a short with the marked area on the 15m, I just was not sure how to put the trade together as I was looking at the retrace back into the R-Zone and I did look across the higher time frames and did not think the 60m had clean space to trade into so I negated to pay any attention to the 240m and its space.

Potential Piercing Trend Line off the 60m setting up, though still have 30m to close.
