XAG: +1R

ES: -1R, for this setup I was aware the level was in the middle of a range and these levels often pause and then chop. Also note the bullish failure at Friday's low overnight last night

RTY: +1R, as is characteristic of the Russell, this trade squeezed within a couple ticks of my stop before going directly to target

A bit of bad luck has me even on the day when I should be up 3R, but this is why I'm journalling.

CLU18: +1R

EURUSD: +1R

NZDUSD: 0R, the market missed my entry by 2 pips before going straight to target. This setup is no longer valid because the upper prices of the support zone still traded.

AUDUSD: -1R, a very frustrating trade here because as the AUD was hitting my stop, the NZD should have been filling my long, but the NZD never traded my entry, and the AUD still stopped me out. Correlations are a b*tch sometimes.

NZDUSD: -1R, the market held this level for a short time (was up 0.7R), before breaking. Ideally I wanted this setup to fill before the long setup mentioned above (i.e. on the way down rather than after the bounce I anticipated from the level below market)

YM: +1R, entry price was the high tick however so a fill in live trading is uncertain. If the target price trades after the entry price trades with no fill, the order is cancelled.
