1S2K4ES#3.Review.Daily.FakeBO!

W#46 SUN&MON
Too much eating, not much sleeping from Sunday family event that resulted in total failure of my intraday execution yesterday.
Analysis was good execution was terrible! How many mistakes were there? Let me count...

1. Failed to recognize SUN reOpen was a fake break-out... I should have taken profit 2 contracts IntradayL2776 instead of kept 1 as runner... because I already have SwingL2773 from Friday. So I lost both at BE.

2. Failed to see what's in play since Friday, then retested in Overnight... It's half-way-back S2792 T2725

3. While I was sleeping, it was "Pop2Sell" since European Open, pre-Market, and then RTH

4. Trailing stop too tight... below instead of above Initial Balance Low @2754, so lost addSwingS2804.50

5. Should have waited for Bears hit target first, instead of scalping Long.

Let it be a lesson learned, again... a "fake out" day that I have seen it many times before but I failed and lost the battle today.
So I decided to stop trading... Plan to sleep early and be ready to fight back tomorrow.

1S2K4ES#4.Review.Daily

W#46 TUE 11.13.2018
Tomorrow is here... ready to trade another day!

Bears hit T2725 at EOD yesterday, then retested in Overnight right at last SUN&MON pre-Election break-out point.
LIS 2727-2707 needs to hold up now...

SwingL2725.75 to retest @2764 Friday's Low
IF not holding up THEN look out below... aha, much lower!

Enjoy!

1S2K4ES.Breaking Point...


Leaving ES 'Drama Queen" alone for next couple days... Why?

I have to re-train my eyes for intraday charts 233T and 512T that I have used years ago; otherwise, can't see much in 1M during Volatility lately.
In addition, just because cousin CL.CrudeOil turned back "Algos on the run" yesterday.
Over 4 points selloff (ATR.AverageTrueRange=1-2 points a day) with more than 1 Million shares traded in December contracts. New month JAN2019 is scheduled for rollover today... Don't forget EIA Inventory report tomorrow THU @11amET due to Holiday Monday.

Yikes! Potential Hit&Run in the making at $54.75 with Yearly new low.
GapUp.reOpen @6pmET 55.49
Asia & European Open retested @55.30 ONLow and bought pullback there, plus @55.70 was developing POC
Pre-Market are buying haft-way-back L55.80 now

IF Bears are not going to attack here @56.61 PVT...
THEN aim for higher, much higher....
ELSE watch out below... to next T43.75 or to retest 2017's High 53.50 - 52.50 level

P.S.
Will do Weekly Update for ES on Friday afternoon, or as soon as I can.

1S2K4ES.The Gambler...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hx4gdlfamo
"The Gambler" song by Kenny Rogers was in my mind when I was writing the ES journal of price actions for last couple days.

You got to know when to hold 'em...
Know when to fold 'em...
Know when to walk away...
and Know when to run...
You never count your money...
When you're sitting at the table...
There'll be time enough for counting...
When the dealings done.

Perfect fit for the occasion, let's enjoy the song first, huh?

1S2K4ES#5.Review.Daily.Summary (cont.)

Note: SwingL2725.75 stopped out BE from previous posting 1S2K4ES#4.Review.Daily

THU 11.15.2018 ITP.InflectionTurningPoint & CIT.ChangeInTrend Day
Triple Targets from SwingS2747.25 that hit and reversed quickly... just perfect for bullish bias going to tomorrow Friday Monthly Option-EX; plus Full Moon Cycle, and Thanksgiving Holiday next week.

addSwingL2674.75 "Close1Eye&HitBuyButton" type of trade!
intradaySwingL2681 chasing after LOD was holding on 512T chart. Failed BO of @2736.75 HOD so took profit at EOD

FRI 11.16.2018 MlyOpEx
In early morning, I was thinking: WHAT IF S2747.25 level retest again?
Wow, it did just that @1pmET 2748.75 as HOD.HighOfDay.
Couldn't help but take it with tight stop loss to hedge Long positions, again.

P.S.
Will have Review.Weekly.Summary charts over weekend homework.

Enjoy!

1S2K4ES.ProfitTaking@11amET

FRI 11.16.2018 MlyOpEx.bullishBias

Took 2 contracts ScalpL2717.75 after retested Low near 2714 PVT, and 38%hwbL2712 T2750
but will not hold to target. Why?
Scalping that turned into intradaySwing and AllIn/AllOut type of trade.
Took profit near 11amET profit taking time frame. especially on Friday; otherwise, it could come back to BE...
OpEx=Wild Swing, remember?

1S2K4ES.Exhaustion...

What the heck happened to weekend homework?
Monthly, weekly, daily homework all day Saturday for ES then all day Sunday for CL.. feeling exhausted so no posting.
Traded Sunday reOpen @6pmET, Asia Open; then here came Monday for LD2T.LastDayToTrade CL.Crude Oil December contracts...
A "whipsaw" day so no chance to post anything.
Oh oh, a "train-wreck" market on Tuesday yesterday.
Total exhaustion: the Market and Me!

Thanks goodness for Thanksgiving Holiday and early closing Friday... Therefore, will have time to catch-up by then..

Note:
Spent times screening and experiencing 70T, 233T. 512T, and 10,000T charts with interesting findings, but ended up using 512T and 10,000T along with 3M and 10M charts for intraday trades from now on.
