GC: Long 1211.9. Opened 4T away from the pivot but within range. Took a little heat initially. +5


.
.
GC: Long 1209.9. Hesitated on entry and got a better price. Not a great setup since price closed too far above the LOD. I read it as a close above the pivot but ideally price should have been closer to the LOD, not the pivot. +5



Not a lot of momentum today. There were other technical setups but they lacked momentum so I skipped them. Still, I finished up for the day.

Missed CL: Long ST setup at 84.47. Market moved too fast. Had my order in but the price shot up and hit target before I could get in.

141014 Trades

NG: Long 3.874. Chopped around and I bailed out early at +2. Did not manage with my stop. Eventually hit target. +2


.
.
GC: Long 1231.8. Almost stopped me out by 1 tick then shot back up and hit my target. +5


.
.
NG: Long 3.856. More chop action after entry. Pulled stop up after 3 bars. Out at Break Even. 0


.
.
Skipped NG: Long 3.845. The prior 2 setups in NG with the chop kept me out of this one. Would have been a quick winner. No heat at all.

141015 No Trades

Very odd day. Could not get my charts to get historical data. All the indicators were not working properly so I stood aside.

141016 Trade

TF: Short 1071.7. Got sucked into this volatility. Price moved so fast on the DOM I should have stepped aside. Market spanked me and I sat on my hands for the rest of the day. -7

141017 Trade

DAX: Short 8809.5. My stop was the HOD. A better stop would have been 1 tick above the HOD since HOD was a resistance. I will pay better attention to that. I was stopped at the high tick and then price dropped to target. -7

141020 Trades

CL: Long 81.51. SF + BH. Took 1 tick slippage on the loss. -8.


.
.
CL: Long 81.04. This was not a valid setup. It did not hit the zone. I thought it did and BH signaled, so I took it. -7
CL: Long 81.03. Next bar immediately after the last setup. I stopped trading after this loser. 3 net losses. -7
