1S2K4MES:SecretPuzzle!

1440M Chart
Emerging pattern that published by my mentor at StructualTrading.com since July 15th from Week#29 for a bullishShark with ptD target@2512 (Yikes!)

The characteristic of a Shark pattern is very sharp and extreme violence move; so if the 5.0 Play cannot hold it up; then, hmm... better have your "Short" on until October!

Thus, my three favorite Harmonic patterns to Swing trades for longer-term: Cypher, Shark, and 5.0 Play.


Find the missing piece of the puzzle... Let's be amazing, be awesome in trading today!

Fibs Inversion in the making... back to where it began as the strategy objective for this Journal Series.
I will start the Summary with a CATch-up Weekend Homework to review 'Fed-juice' videos as another major momentum player.
So don't get caught in "Bear Trap" without hedging Long for Short positions.

1S2K4MES:JustTired!

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLx7UZtckzU
Enjoy "I wanna go home" from Michael Buble

Just tired... is understated!
Last Saturday, my youngest sister and I flu from Hollywood Burbank Airport to join my other sister who flu in from Dallas for touring the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, then we drove to Napa Valley for wine tasting all day (Castello, Beringer, Kieu Hoang, Domaine Carneros) on Sunday. We arrived at the hotel in San Jose, just in time for me to close out some positions that failed to break-out during the European session.
The next morning, we all flu in/out between airports going in back to Los Angeles for watching the sunset at Mama Shelter Rooftop Bar by Monday evening.

There were full scheduled of activities from morning to midnight for the rest of the week...
Tuesday:
Shopping at Westminster Mall and Little Saigon;
Lunch at Quan Hy (the best Vietnamese restaurant) then hurry home to prepare home cook meal for dinner.
Wednesday:
https://www.reaganlibrary.gov/
Visiting Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley (including Air Force One and Marine One);
Lunch at The Izaka-ya sushi restaurant in West Hollywood.
Again, hurry home for another home cook meal - a patio dinner party with Rose wine and Sparkling wine from Kieu Hoang Winery.
Thursday:
Breakfast at Pho 79 (the best Pho restaurant) in Garden Grove, then back to Westminster Mall, and then Americana Mall* in Glendale for more shopping. No time for lunch and hurry home for leftover from yesterday's dinner.
Friday:
Breakfast at Donut Friend in Eagle Rock (bought the remain eight of the creme brulee donuts to fly home next morning); more shopping at Century Mall then lunch at Din Tai Fung (the best crab dumpling restaurant).
First time for window shopping on Rodeo Way in Bervely Hills including the 160th Anniversary of Louis Vuitton exhibit
https://www.thecut.com/2019/07/louis-vuitton-exhibition-la.html
Finally, dinner at The District by HA (the first Vietnamese restaurant in Beverly Hills)

Very exhausting week and all documented... I probably won't remember much after a few weeks.
So let me recoup over the Labor Day Holiday weekend, I should have the Journal Series Summary - Part II before and Part III after Friday's NFP report.

Welcome me back home to Dallas where BIG Things Happen Here!

1S2K4MES:ExtremeVolatility

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

'Trump Tweets Unleash Extreme Market Volatility'
- Investing.com/analysis/comics

https://futures.io/trading-journals/45590-1shot2kill4es-dramaqueen-8.html#post702641
Algo or HFT programs are running at more than 80% in NYSE session... whole different GAME now... new NORMAL is NOT normal... so expecting EXTREME Volatility!

That was what I realized on January 8th from the beginning of the year in the 2nd Journal Series: 1Shot2Kill4ES.DramaQueen
I have thought about a new game plan but never dreamed of Trump Tweets or China Euphoria that could impact the Extreme Volatility with more than 100 points up or down, many times over.

CME Micro Contracts – The Next Big Thing in Futures Trading
Hooray for trading the combination of MES along with ES over the Summer while traveling; it was the most challenging and rewarding efforts in terms of journaling as well as documenting of high probability trades.

Due to Extreme Volatility, a new setup emerged that I called "AlgoDUET" and I would like to take couple more weeks for forward-testing it, especially during this Q4 Rollover process for the DECEMBER contracts. Therefore, the final Summary for this Journal Series will be postponed until the end of September.


P.S.
9/11 Memorial today - after eighteen years.
I was almost a millionaire trading stocks at the time... and knew NOTHING about Futures!

Thanks for posting... it's the first thing that came across on my first day turning my iLoveStation back on after two months being away.

Nope, it wasn't "Love at First Sight" but it sure would be nice and perfect fit for a Dream Luxury Apartment above Cheesecake Factory Restaurant at Americana Mall in Glendale, California. The Americana at Brand Luxury Apartments https://www.screencast.com/t/KSXtzYgY

As I am getting older, feeling like I am aging by the hours... not days and wanting to sleep more... not less; so multi-tasking skills are things in the past; therefore, no new posting at this time as I am running out of time and overloading with homework for EOM.WindowDressing/Breaking and EOQ.Portfolio shifting is approaching, not to mention New Moon Cycle that could trigger CIT.ChangeInTrend.

Wishing for a workstation that can read my mind in order to do the weekend homework as well as to finish my three journal-ing projects at the same time.

Thanks to my NumberOne Fan and a DozenDie-hard Fan Club who are continuing to follow the Journal Series.

Stay tuned!

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/23/facebook-announces-acquisition-of-brain-computing-start-up-ctrl-labs.html
"Facebook on Monday, September 23rd announced the acquisition of CTRL-labs, a New York startup that specializes in allowing humans to control computers using their brains.
The startup will join Facebook Reality Labs, a division of the social media company that is working to develop augmented-reality smart glasses."
Question is... will I see my WISH comes true in my LIFETIME?

1S2K4MES.FavoriteAlgoDUET


Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



Notes:
Limit order in ES 10M may not get a fill due to massive Price/Volume; but watch for the highest/lowest candle is holding up/down or next measured move (usually an extension Fibonacci) that emerged in MES 4M before ES 10M catching up with the identical AlgoSELL/BUY.
IF get a fill THEN don't even think about moving SafeStopLoss to BE! Will get shake-out during the consolidation.
IF scalp THEN scalping for points not ticks! Don't be 'greedy' and load the 'boat' either!
Note to iTS2 (future-self):
It's an obligation... take it to the next level... Trade automation for this favorite high probability trade-able setup!
