Trade setups for 7/07/2014...

Greetings

1 for 3 today....
Under normal conditions, that would stink!!!
Today I was only down 1 Net tix....

The key for my 2 first losses was I was not in sync with the Volume Clusters on both 12/4 structure chart and the 8/4 chart.

Even though it was not a good day for me, I was still pleased with the fact of correcting bad habits.

Like the other day I took a trade as a 'break out' that totally stopped me out.

So the lessons for me here today is BE IN SYNC WITH THE VCA on both the 12/4 structure chart and the 8/4 OFA trade chart.

Do 't go nuts over too many Decision point lines. Too many will give you trading paralysis.

Mark the settlement and plot +/-10 points from there for targets...

Every day keep learning and being optimistic!!!

Mike S.

Trade setups for 7/11/2014...


Greetings

2 for 2 today for 7tix.

Original target was at settlement price of 1957.50.
But due to me learning the OFA way and TRUSTNG the flow, I took early scalp profits.
Hey still made a nice sum for day but can do BETTER!!!

Always look to improve.

Was in sync with VCA on both structure charts [ 6/4 and 12/4 ] which helps...

Enjoy your weekend and hit em hard next week!!!

additional trade setup...

Had to show this setup.
Figures I shutdown prior to this.

Wanted to show setup for learning!!!!!

This is exactly what I'm looking for.
Patience and wait for price to come back to you at your DP area, which was the Settlement price 1957.50

See how the VCA was aligned underneath you for small risk on this trade....

Note to self.....

Burn this image in your mind of what to try to take!!!

Thank you

Mike S.

RE: Trade setup fo 7/16/2014...

Greetings

2 Trade setups and in sync with Volume Cluster Analysis [VCA]

From what I'm finding, a 5tix risk seems like a nice risk level for me while still scalping for 4tix
I feel over time my Consistent Profitability [CP] will be north of 70%

1st Trade: price rising above Globex Hi. VCA shift above DP - Globex hi. Entry @ 1976.50

2nd Trade: price Pullback. VCA shift. Entered when Buyers taking control. Target = Globex Hi, Which hit to the tix. Entry @ 1973.50

PNF with OFA

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

I use PNF with OFA and works VERY well together. OFA vc's marry quite nicely with the pnf patterns Great combo

no Chop



msull35706 View Post
Wanted to post GC trades from Thursday, 2/20/2014...

3 qualified trades, even though there were 2 nice ABC's longs but with RED 50MA couldn't take....

The 3rd trade, which was loser, was in chop area. Patiently waited for Pwr entry into the 15MA.
Didn't matter. In these cases, could have limited loss give the lack of follow thru. Again will continue
to work on qualifying entries an/or limit 10tix loss when trade falls apart...

Mike S

when you entered the trade I don't believe you were in chop. Chop occurred at the close of the next candle
Do you concur?
Thanks
