No trades today. My concentration always got distracted.

Limit order to short the FESX - but was not filled yet - I set the order once the resistance was hit

I acted against my rules today - I wanted to buy the support and sell the resistance...
instead, I bought a breakout and got stopped out.

I made one mistake and traded against my rules for today. I wanted to sell the resistance and buy the support, but I traded a breakout. (Afraid of missing a move...) and got stopped out, well that part is ok.

FGBL:
S/R were quite visible and prices stopped at each support.

FESX:
a little bit confusing, up and down moves, no direction

ES:
after the strong down move yesterday, very quiet today
hit clearly some S/R levels

6E:
made a new TOP for the period.

Lessons learned: I have to stick to my S/R levels and try not to enter breackout trades, since I have no statistics collected for breakouts
