Test

Facebook's image resolution from Snagit uploads are shit.

Livejournal.com only lets you upload 15 images.

wordpress, well not sure how to use it.

Twitter has seperate link for pick uploaded.

so its time to give futures.io (formerly BMT) a try and see how the added steps in uploading screenshots will affect my real time journal entries.

Off to a good start for CTD after watching Lecture 1 & 2 a couple times.

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous about taking the test, its been so long since I've been to "school" and had to be tested on something.

Upon post trading day analysis of what I did wrong.

I decided to put up the 8/21 EMA on my charts and that's not how I got to a positive 10 day trading average. Off it goes.

With the trade of no EMA on the 5 minute and having forgotten about using the Gann retracement levels, my second trade was clearly counter trend, but I had to run for work.

I really don't think using EMA's will improve what I am already doing and doing quite good and consistent with.

Including the 3 Line Break Chart is something I will look further into as my charts will now cover, time, price and volume.

Previous price action based charts I used were Range but Tradestation does not have visually good Range Charts like Sierra Charts.

What I would also like to have up is a Time and Sales and the DOM, all on one window.

Gonna try this new chart layout as it will cover all the major time frames.

Daily, 60 minute, 15 minute, and 5 minute.

Also has the Tape and DOM of Tradestation. I just prefer the way TS lays out their volume histogram as its always scaled, T4 does not auto scale and that's visually not appeal to me.

One wrong again? which one?

What's suppose to take a week, I just completed in a night.

I totally forgot about Game 6!

It was after I completed everything, I saw a post on Facebook about the Hawks-Bruins score. I only caught the post game celebration.

Just a quick note to myself from applying what I am learning from CTD, with looking at the charts differently.

By applying Candlestick Math, the cluster of bars with a 69 high, to me was a bullish sign for higher prices. The pop was good for 7 ticks.

It could be a counter trend move into a potential retracement trade short into a Gann Level for a trade lower.

731 is level to keep an eye on, break of that, could signal more selling, but today also watch the previous day low as its already tested it once through the overnight session.

Thinking about going short below 58 with a stop above 66, though pace is really slow.
