I will not do any trading today. My wife is on a business trip, so it is kids time, but I will do the coding, and I will send my observation after the market close (always easier to see the market moves, and the whys after the close dont you think? )

So here is the picture from yesterday. Very important, this is not an indicator war, or trend lines, or what so ever. It is my observation how do I try to filter the trades using observing time and place of the price movement on the market.



1. So new news, means it could be a quite day. Means, if we are down, than it is much more easier to go long immidieatly, than to waiting for any real comfirmation
2. Easy one. We are at my favorit turn back, or pullback time. And how lucky we are the previus swing high was just right here (8:20). Expecting a big move? not really, specially, we would like to exit from this trade before the news. But we are good for a pullback
3. We are after the news time (9:00) Even if there is no news, I am consider this time as a news event, and dont like to trade into it. So did we reached our goal to fill the GAP yet? no. Do we have any strong reason to go back (broker higher low) No? Oke, so if we dont do this kind of thing, than we are good to go up

So. This is the 3 trade what I have been consider to take it. How to do it, that is depend on you, but for my filtering based on the time and space continium I would have been tried these:P

(If you really would like to master trading with only time basis don't forget to check this journal:

@GFIs1 gave me a lots of good idea, to consider the time as a factor to taking trade. Ofc after that, I have bought a lots of stuff and indicator, to solve me a puzzle, than I realized @Big Mike always right, the best research is always your own research, so I did it to myself, to my market, to my indicator to fit to my style )

Thx Turismo, I know them, and I can tell them what is my problem It is make no sense for me, because it is very very hard to backtest. You can forward test ofc, but doing the backtest it is a hard thing to do. In the sheet there is a lots of levels, which could make sense, but doest it really make sense? Do I really would like to take a trade on every corner? Do I have to? And what is my routine? Is it fit there? Nup. Too much information Too many thing to consider

I am trading short term pivot moves. Short means, if it is only a pullback, than it still could make my day.
On the other side I have been there. I have tried to justified every level, every methadology pivot points, moving avrages, value areas, ranges, weekly highs lows etc... All these things are SUPERimportant to someone. Sometimes it will be important for me as well, because I tell you one thing. If you have a weekly low, most probably, the price will arrive there, with an extended move, most probably, it will be a fib level on a bigger timeframe, most probably it will fall into my globex session range extension etc...

So I am trying to avoid the many information to few, and only those few which could be easly obsovred by opening my charts, and indicators, without do anything else (oke oke checking the news ... ) But once again. It could be usefull. They are doing the same, with much more data: Emini Day Trading

I agree with you. Too much information.

You're right to keep it limited to what you feel is important... If a level isn't obvious, it's probably not important anyway.

I'll check out mypivots, thanks for sharing.

I've been watching YM ranging for 2 and a half hours now... no trades, going to quit for the day.

I got cold, I am not en the best mood, so I am trying to get better. So no indicator programing right now. Will do it, promise.
Market was moving in slow-moo. Me too. Hate to enter on the breakout bar, if the market is ranging. It is fine in case of trend moves, but on this scenario, should have push the button sooner, to get my stoploss on the prev swing high low.

Anyway. Worked out perfectly. I was not in the mood to popback from the previus low, and dont get me fill with the target, so cut my profit target with 2 tick.

See you tomorrow.

Ah one more thing. It is a pratice account right now, I will let you know guys, when it is a live one. @TopstepTrader team asked me to continue trading, and I believe it so too.


And one more. There was a question about the triggerlines what I am using. The simple answer those are just secondary indicators, and only comes into play in case of strong trend moves. Till that time sometimes they are looking great, sometimes not so much. For example today, the small triggerline on the T144 was not broken at all, so the price could rush down to the globex low? Could be, based on other things if I had to bet, I would say so, but I dont care because my target was reached.
But, if I have to push it, because I am down with 10-20 tick, so I have to spot bigger moves, than I would definetly used them, with the same manner than anyone elso is using SMA, EMA kind of indicator to spotting the trend moves, and pullbacks. So nothing extra....

What happened to tomorrow? You never need to push it, it's only our egos that feel that way. (previous post was a duplicate, browser finger screw up)
