Jan22nd Notes/Charts

Just realized imgur doesn't save the name of each image.

When I see something interesting and screenshot it, I save it like "TriangleBreakoutLevel" or "60mChartContext" so I can review them later.

I'll try and think of something to add to the charts or fix that naming problem so it doesn't look like a blank chart with no indication of why I screenshot the chart at that moment in time.

Going to be making more Lak style videos soon too!

Jan25th Charts and Notes

Apologies again for the charts being out of order and without names, anyone have an idea on how to save the names and have imgur display them?

If there is a screenshot, there is a reason I took it (without the names on imgur it's hard for a viewer to tell why). Just ask if you have a question about any of them.

Range bound day so far, took a couple entries early on and then worked on analysis the rest of the session up to this point. AMT theory really helped today.

Still working on videos!

One day I hope to have people wonder if I am an "Inspiration or hoax?!"

Making $70 sure wont make that happen though lol!

Jan 26th Charts and Notes

Very little sleep last night, shouldn't have even attempted to trade today.

Followed along intently, worked on analysis, and managed to put on two trades which were quickly closed because I just wasn't feeling it.

Green, but a light shade of green. Great day though mainly for my reads of context and price action.

(Just hit me how to possibly get imgur to keep the right order of screenshots, I can order the images in the folder on my computer by date/time, and then upload to imgur, will try that tomorrow)

I don't know imgur but you could also maybe try putting an ordered alphanum prefix in front of your image filenames (i.e. a partial rename)

Travel Well

Hey TradeSlinger, your thread has been very interesting. I am a beginner and also read through kewltech couple time but still confused in a lot of the topics. When you approach each trading day, do you also look at chart patterns? If so, do you identify chart patterns in all your time frames or only in certain time frames?

Keep up the good work!

Embarrassing trading today so far, missed the opening long on NQ and then a bias towards testing back down before a move higher kept me from joining the long.

Recorded a video, will try and make it interesting/educational the best I can.

Yes, constantly looking for patterns and price action set ups throughout the session and pre-market.

Pre-market for me mainly consists of finding the overnight range and identifying any key levels before the open.



Quoting 
do you identify chart patterns in all your time frames or only in certain time frames?

This gets tricky because price is price, no matter the bar interval you look at it on. Have you ever looked at a 60m and thought long, but then looked at a 5m and thought short? There is only one price, but two different "looks" depending on bar interval.

The best way to describe what I try and do regarding patterns on various timeframes is the following:

1. Longer term pattern/level is the most important.

2. Longer term for the levels, shorter term for the execution against those levels.

3. Change starts on the smaller timeframes, if confused by all the conflicting signals, stay out or lean on the smaller timeframe.

E-mini NASDAQ Futures Trading - The Problem With Biases - Jan. 29th 2016

Bullish context for the session, biased towards testing RTH breakout levels that never occurs.

Have to learn to manage/eliminate biases and not let them get in the way of analyzing the market.

Getting back into recording each session, will be uploading more videos soon!
