I had some chop trades this morning on the 610 tick chart. Sometimes, I prefer the longer 2000 tick charts when the market gets choppy to help identify the overall trend better.

The win/loss ratio is ok but some of the choppy days were not that easy.

After an account review, I see that I need fewer trades with larger targets to overcome the fees and commissions. I am working on better targets.

Slow part of the day but I have a positive target. I wanted to be out of the trade before 730cst.

Here is my trade for the day. There are certain times of the day when the price reverses. I drew my trend line from around 6 am.

Target reached. The time was around 6CST when I have noticed trend changes. I traded the pullback from resistance.
