Right now I have the previous 60 minute bar as my stop, but kinda bummed, I've given so much back as I don't know what the market will do even though I'm applying what I've learned from week 2 CTD to stay in this trade.

There was 3 pushes to a low from the 5 minute, could I have used that as an exit or just stick with using swing points as exit levels or the T1 gets filled.

The Gann Levels and Projections off the 60 along with the 5 and 55 chart that got me into the trade.

Duh!

I could have easily just used a 1:2 R:R ratio for T1 and would have been out of this trade. But its still good to put some of the stuff I've learned into practice holding a trade longer.

Series of inside bars on the 5 minute. What ever side you go, just go in my favour. hahaha

been in this trade over 3 hours, that's a long time by my previous standards.

75 is swing low, also a 60 minute low. I'm starting to see a pattern here.

This is good stuff for plan development moving forward.

Stopped out @ 12 for 8 ticks. I gave back a lot when I was 3 ticks away from T1. That needs to be addressed.

Upon post trade review, 85 was a swing low on a 5 minute using the 3 bar confirmation method. I did not see it at the time cause I was looking at my P&L fluctuate.

Note going forward, I need to review the 5 minute at ever close and decide what the market is doing within the bigger time frames of 60 and 240.

back from a 1 hour nap.

lol, this is too funny, here I am trying to figure out what I did that could have been done better, and turns out, week 10 of the course will answer my question, step by step, no need to rush ahead, lol

Here are some lines I've drawn using the 3 bar and 5 bar swing confirmation technique.

magenta is the 3 bar confirmation, yellow is the 5 bar confirmation, showing how different a chart can be based on either method.

I will post the other method which is more confusing, which I will not use but still need to complete the assignment.

If did Method 2 Swing confirmation correct, the chart would look like this.
