Hey TradeTheTick,

Been reading and following your journal for a few days now and love it. Just wondering, how do you primarily base you profit targets? I would assume you look at a combination of the above resistance (for longs), volume, size of your reversal bar. It seems like you don't really look for runners.

Cheers and keep it up!

Thank you for your comments.

I primarily base my profit targets on price action. I am looking for the stops to be taken out on the bars prior. I usually look at 2 - 3 bars back but will adjust based on volatility and momentum after my entry. I haven't found runners to be as profitable as the market tends to turn back on itself most of the time.

No trades today. Rather choppy markets likely due to Fed minutes later.
