First trade of the New Year. Waited until probably to late in the down trend to take this trade - I hesitated a few times and then pulled the trigger toward the end of the big move down.

1 trade minus 15 ticks

Another day with good setup bars (for me) one was slightly profitable/breakeven and one was a loser. First trade was a pull back to MA area with a reversal bar - looking for it to retest days lows. Started to move down - and tightened stop to +2 once I was up +10 and next bar was a total reversal and stopped out. Price started trending up with a nice pull back and reversal bar - and was stopped out. -10 on the day.

One Live trade on a Fast MA Cross up with a consolidation - trailed up - was looking for move to OR High - didnt quite get there +6 on the trade.

Not the best week of trading but finished on +

1 trade today not great looking for double top and quick move down it held up at at the MA's so I flattened at +5

The rest of the day kind of rangy - nothing stood out to me.
