I would like to share my trading log of reversal bars with you in order to keep myself focused and disciplined.

The markets I will be focusing on are Crude Oil, Gold, and Russell. My time frame is intraday, usually focusing on 15 minute charts or less. There are no indicators on the charts as I am looking to trade price action without distractions. The charts will be OHLC with a white background.

I would appreciate any discussion, comments, or questions that you may have. I am continually humbled by the markets on my path to becoming a more profitable trader.

Thank you.

Tony

No good setups today for reversal bars in Gold, Oil, or the Russell.

It was choppy in Oil and Gold. And could not get a good entry on the Russell.

Nice bit of trading and good patience. Are you using any other charts/indicators for reference to trade? Do you also watch the ES? Do you trade any other instruments?
