1/6/15 - Live Trade

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

1/8/15 - 2 Live trades


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.
