That pesky futures.io (formerly BMT) bug has made your CL chart not post. Others so far are fine....

Bob.

Have to Run


Unfortunately, I have to go to the doctor. Up about $475 I believe. Hoping that I will be back in time for the afternoon move. I want to be above $700 today.

Hope your trading is going well!

Tried for Quick Scalp on ES

I missed the good setup so I was trying for a quick scalp. PHOD was holding with major divergence. Also had two lower highs in the congestion area and I was looking for price to pull back to the 2009 area. Turned out there was nothing quick about it (time of day). Setup was nice but NO follow through.

Price moved 7 ticks and stalled. I got tired of waiting and wanted to get some sleep so I moved stop to +5 and exited the trade.

See you all in the morning!

Glad I went to sleep - It just reached the 2009 area about 1/2 hour ago.

ES Update

I wanted this one bad for 2 points because it would have put me back on all green for the Combine but I couldn't take the trade because of news. Bummer!

Hoping CL doesn't reach the 47.60 area before I can get in.
