And I am not crazy, here was the reversal I was looking for
theoretical ~70 ticks
difference is a HL and volume
Execution a 0/10 today

You keep saying theoretical +/-x ticks, what do you mean?

What I mean by that is, if I had stuck to the plan (short only at LH, long at HL with volume etc), the perfect trade that I am aiming for would result in X amount of ticks. I want to remind myself that the opportunity is there, but the execution was wrong. And if execution was spot on or even close, I would receive something close to the theoretical yield.

Took a day off yesterday back, lost 3 trades first thing in the morning chasing the short.
At 1100 got a good short for 25 ticks, and then +1 tick, 0 tick. Then market reversed and went back up.

Brought back in market depth for the last 3 trades, paints a little more of a picture of the order flow will continue to do that

Another loser to report, down 45 ticks

A bit uncharacteristic, stretching to the trailing stop loss. Will go back to my 10 tick stops
Entries still a bit poor, making me take more risk then needed. Still a lot of work to do.

Mistake 1. textbook down day, probably won't be too bad if I kept these runners
Mistake 2. Reversals come low in probability, and have to wait for volume

done for the day
-43 ticks
Theoretical
~+200 ticks

Ok, taking a little bit of different approach last few sessions on sim

-21, -66, -24, -29

Although it doesn't show on the scoreboard, starting to show some improvements in entry and exits. In picking high probably outcomes.

Going to trade primarily off of the dom for a bit. Need to get the ball rolling.
