@KelvinKing I'm watching Your videos and noticed that You completely ignore VPOC and other HVN's as targets and waiting the price crowl through them to Your target. Is it intentional? Why You didn't scale out at least 1 contract at VPOC and prefer to scratch Your whole position in case if price start to return to Your entry from VPOC?

Hi citikot,

Yes, I do use VPOC and VWAP as the first scale out targets. As for other levels like HVNs, that depends a lot on the order flow that I'm seeing at the moment.

Could you tell me which video that you watched? I can explain my thought process better.

Thanks!

I watched last 3 one. 06, 09 and 12 of September. Actually my question was related more to videos from 09 and 12.

Ah ok, on those 2 days I only had 1 contract on. I usually have 2. But since I've been having a bit of a small draw down, I've reduced my size. So in those cases, I'm using a hard target +10.

If you watch some of my earlier videos, where I trade 2 contracts, I do take the first one off at VPOC/VWAP.

Cheers!

All dog shit and clowns... lol.

Regarding those two big offers: Probably shorts protecting their position. You do not know if they are real until they get hit with size.

LoL.. Yeah I try to make it a little bit entertaining in my own weird way...

I'm pretty sure those orders were real, because they didn't move even when it became the inside offer just for a few seconds.

Cheers!
