I'm thinking the trade is not gonna work out.

I just need to stop taking trades that have the R-Zone in the way to T1.

5m R-Zone holding. Has not pierced the 21 EMA.

The thing I missed to filter out this trend line was the R-Zone and if it was flattening out at the time the trade was setup and the answer is no.

Now the trade is at the mercy of the markets and right off the bat, this was not a high probability trade.

There was also no close into Space.

Stopped out.

Need to remember not to take trend line trades when the R-Zone is in the way, it was nothing more than a pullback but at the time.

Note: Completely did not trade this move correctly. Did not remember the "8 EMA pushing the price" concept on the HTF's. and the 3 rotations back into the R-Zone concept. The correct trend lines to be drawn would be Trade Trend Lines to enter off the 5m in direction of the over all HTF trend. That white trend line was incorrectly drawn. There were no rotations back into the R-Zone from HTF's so entering off the rotation of LTF's on rotation.

Upon further reviewing what I did wrong today.

Not having all the T1's marked as there were some levels after the fact were both T1's and SL's that could have been used today to lean on.

One level is the 3.787, which was a DP T1 and SL on the 240.

On the 15m, it had penetrated with an emotional candle, closed above and was unable to close below.

That inside bar, along side the 5m R-Zone, could have been a good entry with a stop below or below the 21 EMA at the time of entry for R:R calculation. T1 would have been 3.821

If my math is correct

Entry 3.795

Stop 3.765

T1 3.821

Reward would have been 0.86R so the trade would have been passed had I seen it at the time which I did not.


Need to also note, I was actively chatting in CTD OH today so the focus was not there when it should have.

I forgot to take a screen shot at the pit close.

But after the 5m no trade window expired, the range for today was about 60 ticks, which is trade-able.

If I get a fill back up @ 3.641, KTTG on the 5m with a stop above 3.655 and a T1 at the EoS @ 3.624, it will give me a R:R of 14:31

2.2R factor. I'm taking this trade if it happens.

What I over looked was the closed above the trend line was not into space for the trade up on the 5m. This is for the long trade.

What I over looked was the closed below the trend line was into space for the trade short on the 5m.

Changing the colours of my EMA's. The white and yellow combo blended in with my newly drawn trend lines and horizontals.
