Day 1: September 3, 2013


Trade 1: Wasn't really playing by my game plan. Waited for the exhaust up at 9:00 - 9:15. Saw that it was over and going to reverse. Tried shorting the 8.15 but was stopped at 8.25 on the last exhaustion up to 8.53. Eventually went the way I wanted, but really doesn't matter since it eventually always will. -105 net

Trade 2: Short from 7.70 even though there was the 200 EMA (at .60) and ib2 on 1m. ZLR on 5m as well. Wasen't perfect but felt like the right call as that number was the pivot. Target was 7.53 which was also the full $1 mark off top and was also the pocket fill (using the 1tr). Risk ten ticks to get 17. Was 3 ticks away from being a winner but ended up getting kicked at 7.80. -105 net

Best: Only made two trades. Didn't take the trades that I usually would've (and lost on). -210 net isn't bad.
Worst: Trade what I felt and not what I saw.

P.S: Will add screenshots later.

Day 2: September 4, 2013


Trade 1: Agreed with Smith about the hook at 9:05. Went Long at 7.08 with a target of 7.60. Bought .01c off the bottom and she shot up to 7.44 where she reversed. Moved my stop up to 7.18 which got hit about 20 minutes later. She bounced off the 7.15 and then went to target around 9:45. Was hard to just look at what I made and not what I could've made. Good first trade IMO. +95 net

Trade 2: Had short triggered at median line at 7.81 which also confluenced near the 200 EMA on the 5m. Was near London close so a bit risky. Ran through the price level and got kicked. -85 net

Best: Noticed it was near my leaving time of 11:30 and walked away with a positive day.
Worst: Didn't stay in trade one long enough. Moved my stop to above the previous trendline. Cost me an amazing day.

Day 3: September 5, 2013

Trade 1: Bought a hook hoping more up but got kicked quick. -105 net

Trade 2: Hook off the low. Triple top at 7.40 with a wedge forming. Bought aggressive at 7.29 off fib retrace (61.80%). Was a "rat" and moved up. Target was 7.57 based off wedge. +275 net

Best: Kept calm after losing first trade. Winning day with +170 net
Worst: COULD HAVE let it run up for a full dollar, but like the previous day, not looking back.

Day 5: September 10, 2013

Trade 1 and 2: Used trendline and hook to long but was a quick kick. And then jumped back in right after trying to catch a double bottom. Kicked as well.

Trade 3 and 4: Sold the neckline of the "M" formation and added position just minutes later. Nice Trade!

Ended up trading 4 times with a net of +320


Best: Caught the "M" that I saw to wipe away previous losses and end the day where I wanted to be.
Worst: Chased first two trades.
