Trade Setup for 6/23/2014...

Greetings

Been studying PNF to define SR areas and OFA footprint analysis to confirm trade execution...

Today, traded 2 ES contracts for 4tix scalp.

The goal is to get winning percentage towards 70% and trade size for Top Step $150k combine...

Mike,
Now this is new. Point and figure, with OFA. But, you are right the support and resistance are very clear. Keep us posted.

Mike, here area couple of screen shots with some ideas you may like.
I tried to load the free OFA i have but that crashed NT.
By the way the channels you used to draw on the charts using the price action trading is really very good.

Mike, can you share what your settings are in OFA? I just chose default settings, and all I got was a one candlestick bar. Not sure if I did something wrong or if it's because I installed in during the globex. Thanks!

Nightshade....

All in / All out!!!
Looking for 70% consistent profitability prior to going for another TopStep combine.
Which at this point will be the $150k with $9k target. With 20days to do it, only need to average $450 per day.
Being able to trade up to 15contracts seems doable....

Do you manually draw the SR lines on PNF chart?
For ES... I use 5min, 1 = Box 3 = Reversal setup

Thx for kind words

Have you been able to get OFA to load? I could/can assist if need be...

Keep posting ...

FT7

Here ya go with NT OFA setting and VCA settings.
Enjoy

Also keep in mind I use DTN IQ Feed. Go to your Data Series area on chart. So setting is 1. Otherwise use setting of 2 for other data connections and mkt replay.

Trade setup for 6/24/2014...

Greetings

No trades due to Day job commitments!!!

Showing 3 nice scalp opportunities after 10AM news release.
Follow the volume flow and look for Foot print to tell you when to pull trigger.
Setups had hi vol support underneath and also was trading thru prior day settlement price...
which I'm finding quite important.....

On PNF chart, there was a Dbl Top [DT] break at 1954.25.. which was a nice entry area...
The Delta print showed nice hi vol on Ask around 1953.50 area... with that and breaking above settlement
what else you need to pull trigger.... So was able to improve entry by 3 tix....

Building confidence is key...
