short setup

longs failed to break res (prev support) 87s, no interest buying up there & price hugged the ascending tl, & a breakout to the low which happened quick (looked like it followed the t-note, though i dont look at this mkt for confluence).....

Day review (trade log as per earlier post)


No more trades since posting trade log earlier:

Swing trade 1 -8 ticks
Swing trade 2 +42 ticks

Total for day +34 ticks inc comms.

Thoughts:
positive - gd second trade to run to max, with logical target.
negative - too risky with the target? under trading after decent winner?

Lets see if i can break the 5 day run of 1st trade losers tmrw.

Have a nice evening all.

Volume is quite thin, esp on the bids.

long 66s on 1 lot

Long 67s stopped @ 64s.....poor entry ....wanting for it to break 74s...cld have sold 73/74s & paid 67s 5 times now & wld have improved my posn to long 40s ha.

only so many times can go long this, but the 5min does look nice, ascending triangle for a b/o higher. though on 1min looks heavy. confusing.

when i say support it needs to be put into context, as hardly anything is trading, so all these levels need to be taken with a pinch of salt imo for now.

(re my charts issue - market delta is up & running but quite liking using these broker charts on the lower timeframes).

Overall perspective of today

just some thoughts to remind myself of the overall picture for rest of today:


~ bull flag/pennant on hourly/daily range 46-96 ish. Breaks & holds below 46s (on hourly) to turn bearish (intra day only though).

~ if sticks in yest range then depending on PA: range trade the extremes; look for trend continuations (to high) and/or breakout (to the low) setups.

No idea where price will go, am just staying flexible, with options either way. Lets see what happens.

Long setup


Been out of office for hour & half so missed this little rally, some nice little pullbacks to get on board by the looks of it.

Looking to go long on pullback into late 70s.....

Still have level @ 00-02s for short but will see how PA turns out from here.
