Placed my stop above market structure. I manually watch the draw down and use the market structure stop for worst case. The profit target was reached.

The importance of not using a manual close. The market slipped my profit away on the first trade. On the second I let the ATM close at my target.

Target reached for the day. I normally do not trade a breakout but wait for a pullback. In this case the longer trendline was in this area of the pullback.

I had trouble getting filled at the trendline for this trade. I made money but entered too high for my comfort.

I tried a micro trade for fun as well.

Entered on a retracement but it went further to a previous resistance before going back into profit. I took a partial profit target.

With the markets closed, I am going back over the market movement with the ninjatrader replay. I am trying to see if I would recognize the same patterns. This is also a good time to work on my ATM settings.
