+63 ticks

Good execution today, limiting risks and potential downsides, and waiting for confirmations

-9 ticks today
2 bad trades (-10, -14 ticks) as I gave it more room to reverse than I should and it put me in an early hole

madness today, I forget that it's Independence day weekend, going to set it in my calendar from now on and take the day off

light volume today chop chop chop out at the bottom of the run.
-76 ticks

What I can take from today
When volume is light, it's most likely to hang out at the volume area as much as the 76 ticks was lost it could have been won. But not my ideal kind of trade anyway.

Need to work that in to my game a bit, the first break out trade and then the confirmation. Low risk high reward instead of trying to chase and make large stops

on a note, there was a problem with my zig zag indicator today it would turn color even though there wasn't a reversal but resetting it fixed it.

Terrible morning to start down -22 ticks
Recovered later in the afternoon net +23 ticks on the day

Early morning down contributed by not reading the order flow properly

What will get me over the hump:

1. I think entries are ok now, stops are ok as well
2. Area of challenge are chop zones when the market goes sideways, to counter that I have just got to wait for a breakout
3. It's a matter of vision and if I can read the order flows properly
