Trade setups for 10/22/2014...

Greetings

7 trades
4 - W
2 - L
1 – BE

Last loser was counter!!! Need to be watchful there!!!!
Pleased with day and getting used to 610tix chart 

Still looking for ‘CAPPING’ – 0 print to show Buyers/Sellers are cut-off at certain SR levels [Welly Style]

Sometime capping disappears, that why I try to print screen around trade executions as possible.

OZ

Still using OFA to spot weakness / SR levels...
Just on another screen.
I like NOFT for I can set up on ANY chart, not just OFA. Give me more flexibility.

P = Peak trades... take below 21EMA
V = Valley trades... take above 21EMA

Just a formation I'm looking at but truly the Welly trades is what I'm focusing on now

horizontal lines

Hi Mike
I like the horizontal lines. makes more sense than the channel lines. The markets do not see channels. I agree with you The NOFT is more flexible. Good work.

Today SHOULD HAVE been a winning Day!!!
As you can see it wasn’t...

Lots of learning on chart and mapped out other areas that should have been traded
And being better in sync with Price Action.

Again, when one tries to implement another strategy to the mix… mixed results most likely occurs!!!

I’m liking how I’m engaging the trades, just need more LIVE screen time to get it right.

I’m happy with things and will improve soon!!!

Thank you

Mike S.
