Getting a computer to understand what a human can see visually is an interesting task. Writing the code to help see trades as they develop has allowed me to see how much I filter out automatically. Transferring those filters to a computer has proven to be interesting. Computers are very rule based and very strict at following those rules.

NinjaTrader is a bit cumbersome when dealing with multiple time frames. Not as straight forward as other languages I have worked with in the past.

A little fake out break out? Would like to see it get back up to around the 7257 area before looking for a short.

If it doesn't get there then a possible short below 7252 depending on how price is moving.

First trade was a loser at -510 second trade was a winner at +180. Both good trades but should have been in earlier on the short trade that lost.

Strategy I wrote this weekend has a few bugs which is keeping it from working. Probably something to do with multi timeframes being used. Will have to work on those but not while trading.

Price is still hanging around the tight range from earlier. No real clear direction as of yet.

Will wait for a bit before making another trade. It looks like it wants to move up but no one is committing to the move. I will give it some time.

If anyone is wondering I am looking at a 100,200 and 500 tick chart. I use moving averages to help find the trend and to help find potential reversals. Over time I will cover everything I am looking at good bad or ugly.

Caught a nice one on the drop a little while ago. Back to the positive side now at +395

Haven't taken any more trades and probably won't for today. Ended up +395 which is ok. I am still missing opportunities but the entries are getting better. I see a pattern on the 500 tick chart I want to investigate tonight to see if it is consistent and easy to find even when the markets are moving. I have seen the pattern 3 times this afternoon and it led to a profitable trade all three times. May just be coincidence so I am not calling it usable yet that's why I didn't take the trades based on it.

Hope everyone has a great afternoon. Today is my 30th anniversary time to celebrate.

Later.

Thanks. I have a very logically driven mind and putting things down in words is outside of my comfort zone. That's mainly why I am doing it. I like to challenge myself.

Hope things are going your way.
