Prep work is always necessary<< I HAVE TO remind myself...again and again......whatever be the instrument. ES NQ or CL. SHow where the Puck should be...

anyways this was ES prep at close yester. Lol the buy above n the sell below. I dont sell...so it was a Buy at sell marker. anyways that was corraborated by a friend i follow. Buy above was printed for a Supppper move....but am flat

point at the moment is always have a map...if then...if not...then what. its better if there is a GPS.....

ok here goes NQ n CL guide posts for me for sund/mon. these r not supp/resist...or demand/supply zones as they r inferred to.

they are based of volume n pure volume....but however they will also track to supp/resist...demand/supply zones are those are also almost formed there. always go to where the Puck will be....not where it is hit

but this is just an exmp: how i fwd lookingly look at very short term numbers as tgts.... bigger tgts are also there....but does not apply till the short term starts to take off....adios...hagwa

ok ...the reason for showing some of this is to say that it can be done. i had decided to close...but still went out and gave some additional things.

in trading one has to find their own sweet spot. the other thing i will tell u....if stuff can be seen as Day and Night...all will see it....
so you need to see something of the Day and Night with Context...which others are not able to see or seeing...which becomes DA EDGE.

cheers goodluck n great trading

Guys this is what I believe in....

The Truth and what Trading is..... needs to come from within.

Yes the delve into wtf is Market Structures - simply put what drive price, can you identify after the fact why price stopped, why price went up on a chart if you are not analyzing live. if the answer to that is YES....you have it in you to understand in LIVE that when price stops or should stop or when it should move/begin moving...or gain momentum. Once this is known your market structure is complete.....if you used volume or patterns or astrology(yupp i had looked into that as well....but i play too little $s to capitalize on it or whatever you used to understand PA(Price Action). Thats all you need. Then comes the greatest thing in Trading...& it also stems from what you want from your trades. There is Risk Mgt.
That sums it all...2 things...Structure & Risk Mgt. Once these 2 are pat....things start opening up.

am going to send in a totally irrelevant talk by Kaku who you may know as a Physicist. The point in putting this is....there are such innovative/technical stuff in our world.... and one can do ANYTHING and NOTHING is I M POSSIBLE if there is deep passion. Am not 1st talking of the money....money follows....but money follows in numerous activities....then why trading?

that is correct. However getting over the mental block.

this was posted some place real time well before the move as u can see in the pics...i want to get a few totally correct n hence its not a real trade...but posted asap...hence u can call it practicing a short...

i will start shorts very very soon. no reason not to play is what i am thinking now.

Was in a trade over weekend. yupp guess it was L

Below thoughts have 0 relevance to anything said on forum. These are just my 2 shitx of thoughts which came up at random. Rememeber journal is mine

room no room. The question needs to stem from Room for what?....to make manay or to learn.
But i dont know of any in the room who was L. Why too much geo-pol risk. but when u see something and do not take it so had to be L on a lopsided EOD ES n NQ pos?.

Both have very very contrary answers. If to make money....even if room or person running rooms makes money there is 0 guarantee that someone in the room can make. There are many many reasons to say this. But is what it is. IMHO.

one can sit next to the worlds best trader & still loose . I have said this above somewhere in the threads. Ooops how come..... again it is what it is. No 2 peeps r:r is the same.

So when can or does one get into a room. When someone is already good with their own R:R. If room makes 100pts and one cuts at 2pts?...is room required.

also how do u understand room is good bad or ugly. one can only decide for themselves and not others reco when someone has already gone thru the grind.

anyways L exited at the GPUp levels....show me what u have index.
CL maybe next trade as lesser games.
Index Deltas are at dangerous levels...which can also mean a run up here if Delta catches up

trading is 2 sided.... there is no fun if it was cut n dry. Too many would have figured it out.
