Nice thread! Seems we have some similar issues, I too used to be pretty focused on order flow, and I too have reduced how much I look at the DOM.

Will follow with interest!

another poorly played end of day for me - was long avg 2198 and took small profit.....why! I know why, i had too much size on - 6 lots.......making 400 bucks with that amount will eventually kill my account when i take the hit. I should be making that with 2 lots and 3 x that with 6 lots. Poor trading for 2nd day running. Not happy.
