SL's updated on the 240m

I need to make a check list for the trade setups as that is why I am confused.

Been super busy with work, first day back since last thursday to trade.

I've gone back to the chart setups when I was doing well prior to CTD.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Long off the 55t chart with the 5m and its EMA's about to cross over. Stop was below swing low and below a level ending in 5.

55t had a series of higher lows. Was aware trading into a HTF RZone.

Came within 1 tick of getting stopped out. I did not have any SL's marked so this level was pulled from my ass as the SL's cluttered my charts before and I could not see price action.

I readjusted my T1 to EoS on the DOM as there was a pocket of thin volume. Something I will have on my checklist besides using charts to find targets.

Also had 60m RZone for resistance.

I had to tend to E. when he woke up from his nap, but area marked with the box was a trade I was looking for as the 60m RZone was holding and I had a Trade Trendline drawn on the 55t along with a key level if price closed below.

I was redrawing the trendline for the 55t and I remembered the concept of the trendline closer to horizontal, the weaker it is and it could be transitioning from trend to consolidation.

Overall, the trade I was looking for based on specific rules was the trade I missed today, but its giving me confidence I'm back on track after experiencing a series of losing days from concepts I did not understand or know how to apply them.

Looking to get long above TL and short below TL.

Redraw with new DP for long entry.

Long, with stop below Up trend line's DP.

Good pop higher, then back down, not looking good. KTTG?

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Break further lower, really not looking good with redraw and new DP for a short entry, but stop is just below short entry. I had thoughts about reducing my risk by moving the stop up for this reason, but held firm with my original stop.

Redraw with new DP.

Another redraw and new DP with lower swing high. Really not looking good.

Stopped out. Its looking. All this time while in this long trade, the 240m, price action was inside the R-Zone so, it was an uphill trade from the get go even though upon entry, the 60m appeared to be turning up.

The 15m and its R-Zone was rolling over and when the trend line short entry triggered, the 15m R-Zone was crossing to the down side.

Price action had already traded to 75% of T1 so any second chance entry short order was pulled.

T1 hit, T2 of EoS and LP target area would have been filled.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


One down trend line was removed as the redraw would have been very close to TL2. Also this is where I added an uptrend line for a short entry.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


THe R:R using that up trend trade trend line was not acceptable as T1 was low of day acting as support. I passed on the short trade for that reason and when I recognized it had turned into a horizontal setup up, I entered a short on the break down by 1 tick.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


While I was in the short, I realized my first trade, I took 20 ticks risk, so I should have taken this horizontal short setup with a 2 lot. I added to my position as price action went higher back near my entry. I was either gonna get stopped out or T1 hit. I went to the pool with the family and came back to find out I was still in the trade. Chart below. I manually closed out the trades one leg at a time before the 1610hr deadline to break even for the day.

Starting next week, I'm gonna continue to trade the way I was before CTD with the concepts I've learning using the trade trend lines drawn on the tick chart for entries and stop placement.

Trying to stream line my journal entries by having fewer but more details on the charts.

Using Snagit to edit seems to be the way to go.

My question I sent to CTD OH is correct stop placement without a SL. We'll see what they have to say as this trade was profitable for T1 and T2 would have been filled as well.

Today's price action looks very similar to previous day.

Though according to Bob, means nothing and he's right, two days does not mean a thing.

2 of 3.

I just stopped focusing after getting stopped out and then proceeded with "studying" for the quiz again.
