Today is a NTD as I wasn't feeling good enough to trade today. Sore throat and did not sleep well last night. I did keep an eye on the market and watched my charts though; but knew better than to attempt an entry as I also had a headache.
Hope the rest of you caught the early AM drop and were able to take the rest of the day off.

Way less than 100% today so I did try for a while and realized best to just go back to bed.
There are some days that were just not meant for trading and today was just one of those days for me.

I know what you mean. I had a rough day also but unfortunately I didn't go back to bed.

Just not fast enough with thought today, along with not feeling well. By the time I was spotting entry points and getting ready to put orders to the market the market was way past my entry. With that in mind I knew the same would be happening on exit. Just not there yet.

Took six small trades not amounting to much today. Still sore throat and sinusitis kicking in. Will see on Tuesday just where everything falls out.

Funny how I can go all day not trading. Then when the end of the day comes I see all the trades that snuck by me.
