Tuesday poor PA

On tuesday I was hoping there will be nice movements as on monday, but was boring and poor PA.
09:00 buy 48.71 2C MX +32 SL +24
than an unwanted buy, I must double check order entries. Was thinking to keep till 48.70 and maybe its a winner, but I decided to close and take a break.
So this -17 tick, pre session was +39 ticks.

15:16 buy 49.92 2C SL -10 -10 - forced entry, original limit buy was 49.85 which could be a nice winner
15:20 buy 49.98 1C SL +6
15:52 buy 49.85 2C SL -10 -10 should close at BE, before Yellen start speaking!
16:30 sell 49.84 2C SL -6 -6
16:40 buy 49.88 2C MX +15 SL +4 this could close at 20 tick profit, to save the day. Next time I will calculate it.
17:18 buy 49.96 2C SL -10 -10
19:00 buy 49.98 1C SL -10

Tired, total -18 tick // -198 USD on account. A little loss, need more patience when market not moves.
Thanks.

Hey Ive found the last few Oil days to be WAY too low in volume.

Has it affected your trading at all?

Yes VOL is low and in recent weeks was no so poor price action like on tuesday. Affect my trading, need to cash sooner, and price not reacts as usual. Biggest challenge is adopting to market conditions.

Today trades:
12:34 buy 49.37 2C MX +11 SL +12
13:20 sell 49.58 1C XX +15
13:50 buy 49.30 1C XX +3

18:04 sell 50.28 1C SL +13 too close stoploss
18:08 buy 49.88 2C SL -3 -3 this was closed bcs on M5 we was at dangerous place
18:38 buy 49.67 2C MX +5 SL +17 fraidy cat MX

Anyway today I wanted to trade lower risk, I could follow my rules and stay away while news release.
Also missed the market long entry around 49.33 at 17:15.
As writing the last long TP 50.10 would hit, so really have to leave desk and enjoy what I got. Im grateful.

Total +72 ticks // +672 USD. I decided to take baby steps to complete TST combine, 990 $ till profit target reach. No need to hurry.

Wow goodjob today.

I got chopped up but recovered it all back around that .33 long you missed.

What does MX SL etc mean? I guess C is contracts and SL is stoploss but not sure on the rest.

Do you have a systematic trading method?

Yes its basically the MAX trading system, I will review my advanced videos again, because Im exiting early many times.

MX - partial exit
XX - close position
SL - stoploss hit
SC - scale in, in the combine I didnt used, very good in a strong trend

Entries: buy / sell, C is the contract size.

May the ticks be with you

worth to check daily chart

CL dance on daily 21 EMA in last 2 weeks, if 51.00 holds, than we can resume downtrend. Be careful and stay focused
Yesterday I got tired too early, so today dont trade pre-session.

So your using a mechanical forex system?
Seems to be working well for you so I cant argue with it but I am more discretionary.
