Hi Mike...Are you putting the tick charts on the RLT templates...or are those something you developed? Thanks Vic

Vic

Just an additional 800tix chart with a 21EMA and manually drawing Trend line + channels
in looking for key entry points of entry.

No changes to RLT chart...

Mike S,

Greetings

Spent the weekend in my laboratory and looked into Market Profile [MP]

Here's a CL setup that should have been taken around PP area @ 99.83
Based on Fridays MP, the odds of price returning back to Hi Volume Node / POC, were
highly doable based on Friday's action.

I got in and took 2 contracts out at 4tix, just under $100 or par and took 3rd contract out
@ 100.02 or 7tix.

Besides was a nice SEL [2nd Entry Long] off top.

Nice $150 start....

Mike S.

Note: Look a the order flow around 8m. Nice 'Capping' prior to SEL

Done for day.. 3 for 4 on 3 contracts...

Mike I just started following this thread as I was interested in RLT. I am wondering if you are taking a break from RLT because you don't feel you could make enough money from it to make a living? Or are you not doing as well with it recently because the market conditions changed? Just asking because those are two reasons why I have jumped from system to system. Anyway, really like your journal.
