I am back short YM at 17481 and ES at 2095.75 ideally I want these two close below in next 30 mins or else again I have to take a bite and call it a day...


Closed YM short at 17471 for 10 points, I didn't take it out in the morning anticipating a trend lower that can still happen but damn I lost patience. Still have ES (September) short and ES (Dec) long so basically flat...that's my trading ladies and gentlemen any help will be appreciated.

Note: I am ready to short at higher prices or ready to close ES short around 90 and keep long for a bounce and ultimately get flat before FOMC...that's the plan

Yesterday evening/night I was planning to take short but didn't took it why?

1. FOMC
2. Price Action looked like as if it's going to gap up

I still have my ES pair looking to close short after big flush down which we haven't seen it yet...

Meanwhile I am trying to refine my entries using Volume Ladder/ Footprint and Cum Delta..work still in progress i.e setting up templates etc.
