Just a marker to self:-

Below was a wrong observation made on april 26th. This was a massive sell from 21st rather than buy. Buy happened in 3rd week May.

A buy is easier to spot than a sell. Tape History to be looked at April 21st to 26th.when sells really came in. They were all BB trades. This happened before the down move came in. Key here was to try and track certain types of trades.

anyways....will see what happens. Marker on 27th April....certain BB trades.

seemed massive buying....likes of what was there during the day of Feb 2nd. The move up started around Feb 2nd

Someone knows something..... just one buy was BoA 8mill+. But this was nothing.

Seems a massive move coming.. though aapl down.....again who would buy before FOMC...not sure. But thats what data shows.....but again can someone flush this....always a possibility.

Key here is whats the carry trade with Yen & whats up with the USD OVN....into FOMC

Note:- This is just a note to self...to see what were the effects of observation. Its not something one should trade off. Usual disclaimer. Its just a pathetic note in the journal.

Also this does not do me any good....i cannot buy at this price.....was hoping for a massive flush down....but may have to wait. hmmm...lets see

ps:- will see...this might hurt....am in a short. Will have to keep an eye on how this plays out..especially looking at the data in hand

Just a Marker to self:- 3rd 7th 10th June were days of Huge Flow.

Friday EOD 6/17 Very Broadbased Buys:- Tech/Financials...everything...like start of a move.
However Monday /Tuesday 20/21st:- Big Sells come in EOD broad based on Financials/Tech...Huge
Wednesday:7/22- Seems repeat of Monday/Tuesday EOD...except Csco was bought.

huge skew... ..

Note to self ...after brexit...

Huge Skew...right. The Buys came before brexit. Very strong....so was surprised by few sells after.
However the sells were pale in comp to buys....Note:- revisit.

Either ways this does not affect any day trades....however equities it may. Will need to keep perspective and look into this. A lil pre-occupied...else will revisit.

Also revisit days after brexit....as there were massive flows.... chk 27/28 mid day /29 mid day

need to revisit.....do they play it like this for exits

I humbly thank the so many I have come across in my trading life and so many I keep coming across. Why are you in my journal. Because without you i would not have had an iota of success. You gave me tools to think outside the box in the oldest and most challenging game.

You have knowingly or unknowingly helped my trading. Cannot express my gratitude enough. Though might be currently using a small subset of my leanings....my learning would not have taken shape without your comments. My Sincere thanks to you all. I Wish you good health and luck.

For a blue print of the markets:-

David for showing me Demark

Last but not least my extended developers...i could not make it without you. Without either bouncing ideas or having developed stuff... many thanks.i consider you as my go to's in case i have or develop something in the future.
Mark Martin Tommy Stuart and many others

My 2nd last note or last in the Journal. Have been dabbling what to post here. As typically i try and make notes of significant days .... Anyways this has been a place for me to come and reflect or just post some stuff so that i can look at it. I hardly solicited advice..nor did i open up fully on what i was looking. However hidden in this thread could be some very interesting phenomenon which i have seen being repeated day after day in the markets which when known and understood was of use to me.

Anyways..... this all would not have been possible.....unless I had stumbled upon a person who approached me as i shared a certain chart. Many many thanks.

a special thanks to below again...in case i missed thanking you before.
1. @mrmuggins
2. Pat Dittmar & Bonnie << i would have never found what i needed in trading if i did not have that 1 thing from you
3. @DionysusToast for JS.
4. Kent of Zunaa ...A special mention. yr indicators rock. You were one of the greatest traders in the world. Though you term it as Simulation we know the trades shown on yr youtubes are real. It takes hoops to go in for simulation trades using tradestation.
5. @rahulgopi....the blocks work and work sweet. Never give away. Also yr room and @geez....the last of the zunaa traders that i know off.
6. bookmap you too have a good product...but i just use one 1 thing off it
7. Emini-watch....you made my Tradestation Light up and then Ninja. You have also been a wow. I do use a lot of stuff or try to do more than the average trader was recently told by a well wisher.....but who cares.... it's the bottom line that counts.
8. @Fattails yr coding rocks. I will be there for Ninja 8
9. Chris Perruna....yr free stuff on yr site....led me to build myself a comprehensive all encompassing look at markets using Pinnacle data
10. Steve Hammer. For a certain there are Longterm/Shortterm programs or Buy/Sell programs and Accumulation/Distribution. When this is known.....markets are not so complex. Thanks for yr twtr feeds as that helped me find these
11. And many more and my family and the universe itself.

One thing I know for certain. Its in our hands. Perseverance pays.
Also that it takes guts to get into this....but if a lion go for it.

cheers n goodluck all.

Closing a chapter in Life & it's time to now move on. I thank all the above once again and repeatedly thru my life.
I also thank all my developer's past/present and future. I would not have dared to take next steps w/o your wild help. Also many thanks and am humbled by the Grace which has been in my life and support of all near and dear.
2016 has been good. Also good lesson's on the way.

However.....it's now time to move on. There is a fine line between success and failure. Similarly a very fine line between Being Profitable to Greatness in trading. But this journey has to be taken alone. No one ...no one will be responsible and can be be made accountable than the Self. I like this >> Also that it takes guts to get into this....but if a lion go for it.

And a special thanks to my mentor. You know who you are & not sure why you went silent. My trades and thinking have been inspired by you. 20-30pts on a 10range. And if ES did 30...u were wild. Did you think the journey was now on my own. Even if you did....let me tell you lets connect....some wild stuff to follow in 17's and 2018s and i wish you are there.

Anyways also reading a book by Don Miller over holidays...half of it done. This is the only book after Livermoore's Reminiscences and Master the Markets - Tom Williams which will be read by me cover to cover though have books to fill a library which have only skimmed thru.

Cheers & Only the best till we meet next.

Above was not the last trade of the 16s...had a few more.

Anyways...17s 1st trade done. Was trying to capture a vid...but was over 3hrs. Will see if can upload to youtube then will post. Only reason to post....is has many tools being discussed in the forums...& some of them are in use. This is only to show the usefulness of various tools if anyone feels useful. If not best ignore as tools may not be known. Its 4hrs Long into the trade.... & shared to show some of the tools in action.

short term scalps.....at times...it helps to understand when book flips....& how to get a head start into reading it.

Each tool is unique....& some offer more clues than others..... what is lagging?
