I got filled while I was taking a nap. Forgot to cancel my order.

So what have you learned?

Perhaps that if an order is a mistake, you should close the trade immediately upon learning it was a mistake. If you have no reason to be in the trade, why are you in the trade?

Many more Course students in OH today, this should be interesting to see the topics being discussed.

Quoting 
the 60m trading into space but I was not at the computer when it rotated back into the R-Zone white lines are drawn today.

if my understanding is correct, waiting for a lower time frame trade back into the R-Zone would be a good trade if it sets up

The comment I typed in OH

The R-Zone rotation re-entry looks good across all time frames. Stop just about the SL of 78.

Here's where there's a lot of work, so many time frames to pick an entry.

I'm looking at all R-Zones across the TF's.

83 stop, to get the trade to 1R, I need trade to get back into the 53 area.

where would T1 be?

I could use 3.615 as T1, its proved to be a SL and its an EoS target on the 15m, trade would be 1.2R reward if the 53 gets filled.

Quoting 
[09:14 am] : Hey Mike, I have a question. if T1 has been hit and there is a roation back into the R-Zone, where should T1 be for the R-Zone entry? 60m chart marked with rectangle area


Quoting 
[09:15 am] : duh! never mind I thought about my own question and see now that I've thoguht about it, lol


Quoting 
[09:18 am] : look at how NG is reacting to 3.615 again

3.613 is an EoS target off the 5m, interesting to see low print of 3.613 so far.

Looks like when I got to the computer and posted my first journal entry, was when the R-Zone rotation entry happened so I was not in a position to calculate R:R.

I've got 1 more hour before I have to go.

Quoting 
Trade Ninja[10:09 am] : looks nice on the 5 min but the other time frames kinda contradict it... I would wait on it for a few mins


Quoting 
[10:10 am] : yeah, the HTF have R-zone in the way so would have to target the EMA's

Just waiting for the trade to trigger as once again, in my mind, I see multiple R-zone targets on the HTF charts.

Ok, got my risk and target in place and waiting for the trade to trigger.

Stop is below low of day, T1 is in the 50 area, mainly targeting 51. If trade triggers around 30, the trade is on, if not, will have to see if there is a rotation back into the LTF R-Zone

I should also work out a rotation trade back into the R-Zone for the HTF's.
