------
Total profit : 11 ticks (6B)
Support at 1.6077. Short at 1.6075. +4+7. It was good for 14 ticks atleast.

I missed 2 good opportunities to short on 6J. It could have been big winners today.

Feb-9
-------
Total Profit : -13 ticks

1st Trade : 5 ticks (6S)
Nice support at 1.401. Shorted at 1.400. +4+1.

2nd Trade : 2 ticks (6C)
Support at 1.0050. Shorted at 1.0049. +1+1. Both target exited at BE.

3rd Trade : -20 ticks (6E)
Resistance at 1.3716. Long at 1.3718. Stop hit at -10 ticks on both targets. During afternoon 6E made a sudden move upward, i thought this is a good opportunity. But it was already exhausted by the time I made my entry. I should lookout for these type of entries.

11-Feb
--------
Total Profit : 13 ticks (6A, 1 trade)
Nice support line at 0.9976. I entered short at 0.9974. I changed my strategy a little bit this time. Instead of having a fix stop loss of 10 ticks, I placed it at last swing high. First target was 7 ticks, second was 17 ticks. 6A didn't show interest in going down, so I exited first target at BE+1. Allowed second target to wait some more time. 6A brokeout, and it went in desired direction. I exited second target with 12 ticks when 6A took some pause going further down.

I think this was a little more comfortable trade then my regular style. With my regular style I may have exited both targets at BE. I need to give my trades more space and time to breathe before exiting.

This was not a great week in terms of profit, but I learned few new things that should keep me going.

Total Profit : 6 ticks (1 trade, 6E)
Today ninja trader gave me some hard time connecting to data feed. It was frequently disconnecting and connecting back. Anyways,.I saw resistance at 1.3475 on 6E. It was also forming 1-2-3 pattern. So did a long at 1.3476. As soon as I entered my order, Ninjatrader got disconnected. Ooh-oh! Waited for some time to get connection back. No comeback. Exited Ninja Trader, started again. Not connecting yet. Restrated my computer and started ninja again. Thank god finally connected. Quickly checked my position. It was +6. Exited immediately to make sure I am safe.

Ninja kept disconnecting throughout afternoon, so I decided to stay out of trouble. I will do some troubleshooting today to see what was the issue. It still keeps disconnecting.

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. Do not forget your loved ones when you are trading. Happy trading.

16-Feb
--------
Total Profit : 17 ticks (2 trades)
First Trade : -4 ticks (6E, 1 order)
6E moved down sharply in morning. Then it came back up sharply around 10.30am. Resistance at 1.3513. It was also near high of yesterday. Good setup. I entered long at 1.3515. 6E moved 4 ticks and came back. For next 2 bars I was thinking who is Mark? Then I discovered it was me, so I excited at -4 ticks. Although it was a big winner if I waited 5 bars, but it's very long time for hoping something.

Second Trade: 21 ticks (6S, 1 order)
6S moved slowly in upward direction in morning. It made a sharp move up around 11.30am. I waited for a small pullback. Swing line at 1.0414. Long at 1.0415. Set my stop to 1.0395 for 25 ticks. My target was 1.442 for 27 ticks.6S broke out as expected. Moved my stop to BE+1 after +7 ticks. 6S went up to 1.039 and hesitated to move further. So I exited at 1.037. Although it went up to 1.045 afterwords.

There were few more opportunities after this, but I was busy and didn't want to take risks in hurry.

Total Profit : -10 ticks (1 trade, 6A)
6A made few good moves in morning, I missed several opportunities because I was busy. I got a swing line at 1.0102 in afternoon.Entered long at 1.0103. Market was too choppy and there was previous resistance line at 1.0104 that I ignored. 6A started moving down and I exited at -10 ticks after 4 bars.

Today market was choppy for most of the instruments. I should not take trades in these type of conditions.
