No trades today. Yesterday was too volatile and kept me out of today's market.

Contract: Russell
Entry signal: Inside Bar Long
Entry price: 1103.8 (green)
Exit price: 1104.5 (red) Early Exit
Entry time: 6:54 A.M.
Ticks: +7 (per 1 lot)

I took an early exit since the entry bar closed opposite and there was a small news event at 7:00. Better management would have been to bring the stop up instead of exiting early. Market shot up on the next bars.

Entry price: 79.80 (red)
Exit price: 79.97 (green) Stop
Entry time: 7:22 A.M.
Ticks: -17 (per 1 lot)

This setup was inside a Measuring Bar at 6:00. I was not paying attention to that and took a trade inside a range. I paid for that lesson.

Interesting one, do you find the move is better probability or larger/stronger when the trigger bar lines up with obvious resistance like that, or do you get more fakeouts/failures?

The setup today did happen at an obvious resistance. I prefer it to be above the line or below the line but once it has been breached, it usually has less impact. I haven't altered my plan for resistance lines so I don't know the stats on fakeouts/failures.

Thanks again for all your posts. Will be doing similar in that will be stopping Friday next week until after the New Year. Never really thought about how much trading becomes a coin flip toward the end of the year until it was pointed out to me.

Best wishes to you and your loved ones this holiday season.

Matt,

I have not created a BloodHound template because I don't use any indicators for this strategy. I am just looking at market structure and using some rules I learned from my mentor years ago.

Ah, ok. I've been playing with BH somewhat and you can create solvers that use only price but I still have a lot to learn. Daniel has been a great help with questions I had.
