I had time to think about what I did wrong today and the application of week 2 overwhelmed me today and I let the P&L dictate my thought process.

I did not have the 15 minute chart up at the time, and I was caught up with bar analysis that I forgot about swing analysis of the 5 minute chart.

Right now I do feel like I'm drinking from a fire hose but I still need to continue and do my best at what I am learning.

Got some levels marked on the 240 based on the Space concept.

End of Space level hit after EIA Storage Report.

Its too bad I had to take a stupid photo of some orchids, so I could not focus. That fucking place needs to be sold ASAP.

Looking to short the market if it retraces to a Gann level and has a low risk entry for a move back down to 3586

Sat through alot of chop and slop.

Having learned about the Space Concept, I know just because there is Space, does not mean there is a trade.

Fully aware of that, but I wanna see if it would work here if price trades 83 for a target of 99 with a stop @ 68.

Each push lower not as bearish from the series of 5 minute bars. 15 minute also showing the same but the path to 99 is not as clear as I'd like but let's just put this trade on and apply more of what I've learned so far.

My understanding of Space was correct, market could not reach 99 smoothly and showed lots of resistance and chop from 90-97, 2 ticks from T1 but I did not bail cause I wanted to see how price acts based on this Concept.

Need to have a consistent rule set if the path to the Space target is littered with chop.

market could not even get through 94 and has traded back down near entry.

The 60 is showing congestion on a bigger picture, so the market can break either direction at this point.

Once again, being in a trade with a new concept I've learned is teaching me alot about how to apply this new found knowledge.

Stopped out. I saw it happen the moment it traded away from 3594, but I did not have a plan that says I can move my T1 if this or that happens.

Something I'm gonna ask BIX about.
