Half days + better focus

I got in at lunchtime and got 2 signals . The 1st was just selling into major resistance - last weeks high and the 2nd was a 2b sell at the prior days high .

I have been watching a relatively longer timeframe ( 6765 tick ) but have built paintbars that highlight candlestick patterns for a 5 minute .

It seems to show good entries for continuations and reversals on a minute based timeframe but not as well on a tick or range chart .

Todays total was + 17.25 NQ pts.

Globex scalp

Only 1 trade in the Globex session for me today . I saw 1706 as support and bought into support for + 9.25 NQ pts .

This weeks totals are ....

+ 21 NQ points
5 winners
2 losers

The NQ has been working out well for me . It seems to me the ES is heavily manipulated and produced a lot of stop grabs for me . Maybe I dont have the tolerance for wider stops .

I like the new candle pattern price bars a lot and see some value in the signals produced by them . If anyone is out there and would like to try them you are more than welcome to them .

Hi Eric,

I have really enjoyed going through your trading journal. Ijust have one question. I tried using the three bar reversal indicator that you had posted earlier. After downloading it in to my indicator box, I can not seem to see any patterns at all painted on the charts. Could you please let me know how I can fix this.

Thanks,
-Keep

The pattern should appear if you refresh your chart . I dont use the pattern feature of the 3 bar reversal paint bars . What I get from them is a visualization of when a bar closes above the prior bars high (CHPH) or closes below the prior bars low (CLPL) . These are significant and show me price commitment .

And thanks , I'm glad you enjoy the journal .

I took 2 trades today with 2 small losers . The 1st was a sell into resistance - 1731 and price just walked through it without flinching . The 2nd was with the trend and didnt fare any better .

I'll see what 1731 does as support and consider another entry but since its a minor holiday I feel I'll call it a day .

Todays results were - 11 NQ pts.

Thats better

OK , so I didnt call it a day . There was a buy at the support line - trendline bottom at the 69 % level and was good for + 12.5 pts .

The price was sniffing the Vwap so I cut the 2nd car short . I want to post the Vwap chart but its not cooperating , I have it saved in my computer though .

*NOTE TO SELF .....
FOCUS ON 1 TIMEFRAME , TAKE ENTRIES CONSISTENTLY ON THE SAME TIMEFRAME .

Todays total becomes + 1 NQ pt .

Vwap - 3SD of vwap

This is how the PM trade looked on the Vwap chart when I pulled the plug on the 2nd car .

No trades today . I had a few errands and tied up a few loose ends . I saw this quote on Surinotes - Suri is a very nice person and is quite helpful and approachable .

10 13 09 Vwap NQ


Heres the Vwap chart for today . I'm still new to this but it has been helpful to me . I noticed today ( in hindsight ) that price was wrapping around the vwap like a snake . What I am also beginnining to learn is how the SD lines form support and resistance areas .
