"1Shot2Kill"!

Hello everyone.
I apologize for being "missing in action" last week.
I wanted to register my entry by 7/11 midnight, so I did it first and intended to post my journal tomorrow morning after a good night sleep and after learning my way around Futures.IO
But "tomorrow" never came because my computer CRASHED! More about it later as I'll post my journal soon.

Too bad about your computer crash

Looking forward to your journal
From your word doc on the contest entry page:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


More importantly, how I finally found my "missing piece of the puzzle" after many years of painfully and unsuccessfully trading futures without Harmonic patterns; thus I want to forward- test and uncover my "aha patterns" which were the combination of "Shark" and "Cypher" patterns that were in play together during Contracts Rollover.
I like to call it the "SingleEntry==>MultiTargets<>ContractsRollover" strategy.

I trade less during NYSE session but more during the Asia, European, pre-Market, and last hour of trading day to find "1Shot2Kill" trades that could turn into Swing trades. I have 30 Shots per trading day... 2 Bullets for each Product in each Session; but allow "unused bullets" to other product or session if no setup presented itself. I take 15-30 minute naps and manage current positions during "long lunch no trade zone" from noon until 1:30 or 2:30pm EST when the Gold and Oil Market are closing. I pay attention to volume when the Bond Market closes at 3pm EST and then 4pm EST MOC-Market On Close looking for ES spiking volume.

1Shot2Kill.Journal#1


First thing first, I would like to thank FIO member Aquarian1 who has offered his expertise and his times to help out a newbie who is lost in the world of posting...

I feel sadness whenever I login and see this message: "Hello TraderTS, you've been a member of our community for 1079 days but haven't posted anything yet."
Pardon me, I didn't even have enough time to sleep last several years, but I am here now... so watch out FIO!

Be sure to read the following attachments: my Introduction, my Experience, and my Journey; if you have not read them from Journal Challenge Entry.
Also, watch this video from Trade Empowered.com
Cypher, 2618 Strategy, and Fib Inversions
Published on 10 May 2015

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkwIF30we4Y&t=2s

This video has changed my trading direction to a very different level for years later that I didn't even know at the time.
In fact, Gold has the perfect "aha patterns" Shark and Cypher in play together during Contracts Rollover and after US Presidential Election Incident in December 2016...
You can find that chart in "myJourney... Learning Harmonic Patterns" document.
Most people are waking up and smelling the coffee, but I am waking up and smelling "Shark, Cypher, and McDREAMY patterns.
What the heck is "McDREAMY" pattern? Let's leave it alone for now and I will post it tomorrow morning after a good night sleep.
If "tomorrow" never came... then you know what? "Oops, I did it again" - MIA!

1Shot2Kill.Journal#3 myTradeCalendar asof 7.20.2017

FYI
Sunday is New Moon so Astrology Finance is expecting Wild Swing in one direction or both on this Friday or Monday.
"Drama Queen" is already in ONE direction since July 7th. Going to the MOON... anyone? Or lost your Swing Long in between Yellen's testimonies and Fund Managers' "Shake&Bake" moves after the holiday short trading week?

Last day to trade Crude Oil CL cAUGUST by 2:30pmEST today; it may not even worth it to get out of bed next week and trade the European session because of very narrow range and slow volume trading so far.

Therefore, I will focus trading Gold GC and do more analysis on cDECEMBER Contracts Rollover that Ninja Trader 7 scheduled to roll on July 31st (last day of Journal Challenge, yahoo!").

Enjoy and Trade Smarter!

1Shot2Kill.Journal#4 Cypher pattern of the week.

TGIF,
Don't forget to make a decision to hold or take profit on your GC Swing Long, if you still manage to avoid the Summer Holiday Shake-out.

Just 40 points for a week and haft but still pretty good to call it "Cypher pattern of the week"!

It already failed beCypher at ptD 1239 therefore, it became McDREAMY pattern for next week.
So how high will it go? Well, at least to retest break-out point 1260 at Monthly PVT... but think higher, ok?
It's New Moon and pre-Contracts Rollovers into cDECEMBER... Looking forward to it?.

Have a fun summer time with family!

1Shot2Kill.Journal#5 Another Cypher pattern in progress...

FYI
Let's take it easy on Crude Oil CL because buCypher ptC T127% 47.80 traded THU 7/20 and on its way to ptD T78.6% 44.72 if hwbLong at 50% cannot holding it up.
Can you "smell" cOCTOBER Contracts Rollover already started?

1Shot2Kill.Journal#6 Weekly Trades Summary

Hello everyone,
I feel blessed that because of my computer "crashed" last week that I have a chance to re-think of how I am going to "present" my journal since I could not post it daily. I apologize for taking this long but there is so much I can do during RTH-Regular Trading Hour... before Ninja Trader 7 freezing up and having to reboot because of "low memory".

My journal is up-to-date and should be posting daily this week.
Enjoy and Trade Smarter!
