I have to remind myself that I am willing to to do 2 months to reach my combine goals so as not to consider over reaching which was an issue with my prior two combines.

I don't think it is cooincidence the Topstep Funded trader scaling plan is laid out a certain way.
Make a buffer and then one can add size.

My point is, if you're not considering that or a similarly progressive way to add size you can end up negative real fast and chasing. As time runs delta and target become a greater stressor.

Curious. Apologies for my ignorance, but what am I looking at here? There is a lot going on here. Assuming transactions at bid and ask on a volume bartype is a piece of this?

Edit: The color coding and the 0 x 0 stuff looks like a lot of info but I have no idea what it is.

Reason for the short was failure of prior zone shown with an exhaustion bar,




This is a 4500volume bar.
The green 961 over the bar is the delta count. Total of asks over bids. That helped me decide it was an exhaustion bar. The 118 ask was the stop to hide behind. The yellow is a congestion area plausible first target and what they may trade it to and it get a reaction off of, the blue just denotes it has the most volume traded there.
