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!

1S2K4MES:AlgoDUET.ITP@2810

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByfFurjQDb0
Enjoy the song "You Are The Reason" (Duet Version) - Calum Scott and Leona Lewis

Week#35
2019 8/26-8/30
Last week in Los Angeles with no time for trading... quickly taking off all Short positions after seeing SUNDAY GapDownOpen2newLow with AlgoDUET and EchoTrades emerged setups for EOM.WindowDressing (refer to the previous Flowchart for measured moves and ABC triangles in details)

Just have to chase Long after Labor Day Holiday.

Notes:
It's better to use 4M chart for beCypher.ptC with potential failure at ptD.
Pay attention to RTH 1stHwbLong as the ahaTrade for the next pullback to retest ptBO after cDEC Rollover.

1S2K4MES:TIT.TheIntuitionTrade!


https://futures.io/trading-journals/46956-1shot2kill4mes-swing2go-ip-itp-4.html#post727002

Don't be confusing with TIT.TheIntentionalTrade posted previously, see link above.
So what the heck is TIT.TheIntuitionTrade?

Week#36-38
2019 9/03-9/20

Pretty much DOA.DeathOnArrival returning to Dallas... and needing to rest the next three days... therefore, no weekend homework whatsoever.
First thing first, the plan was to chase Long after Labor Day Holiday.
Why? Just because "Drama Queen" behaviors in the past for EOM.WindowDressing during the Holiday and before Quarterly Rollover--more likely to retest Double Top than Double Bottom this time.

But why? Ah, just look at 240M chart for clues, especially after Hit&Run with AlgoDUET.ITP@2810
1. emerging green.beABC{2775.75-2944.25-2810.25} D127%3024!hit nextFRI 9/13
2. emerging red.beButterfly {2940.75-2810.25-2899.50} with potential failure at ptD to become beDeepCrab at higher level instead
3. emerging hidden triangle pink.beABC{2851.75-2946.50-2889.00} D127-141%3009-3024!hit nextFRI 9/13

Deja vu, the nested patterns with multi targets!

Notes:
Don't be afraid to chase...
Hmmm, still has to be "OneEyeShut" for iChaseSwingL2931 then addScalpL2960
--going for retesting of Prior High near Double Top.

1S2K4MES:FibsInversion.Down


TraderTS View Post
3. emerging hidden triangle pink.beABC{2851.75-2946.50-2889.00} D127-141%3009-3024!hit nextFRI 9/13

Week#39-40
2019 9/23-10/04

Just 'Cat & Mouse' teasing at lower high all week but failed BO at the end... so nothing else to do but FibsInversion.Down
The question was how low?

Hint was in the pink hidden triangle to retest ptBO as follows:
ptB 2946.50 as priorHigh + 200SMA but NO Volume Buyers for decent bounce
ptC 2889.00 IF dead-cat bounce here THEN going for new low, next
ptA 2851.75 as LIS.Swiched2Bullish

Emerging blue.buABC{3012.50-2953.75-2995.00}D127-141%2920-2911 D162%2908 D200%2880
All targets hit but there were still no Volume Buyers even though RSI was in Extreme OverSold.

It's not IF but WHEN for one more push/slide down awaiting the Monthly Non-Farm Payroll report on Friday.
Likely my favorite AlgoDUET is about to 'Rattle & Go' again!

1S2K4MES:AlgoDUET.ITP@2855

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


Week#39-40 (continued)
2019 9/23-10/04
Thursday preNFP Friday report

So it's AlgoDUET.ITP@2855 (WEEKLY 50EMA) retested RTH 1stHwbLong from cSEP contracts in August...
https://futures.io/trading-journals/46956-1shot2kill4mes-swing2go-ip-itp-7.html#post746422

Not only 'Rattle & Go' with massive Volume Buyers but also run-away with a 'Twist'--see if you can spot it on the Side-by-side chart; the other notation is documented in details from MES 4M chart. Just another 'Hit & Run' to retest ptBO looking for the Seasonal October's low in cDEC contracts.

Can't help but to play aggressively with more CONVICTION for the ALL in/ALL out strategy until EOD after Friday NFP report, especially with multi contracts in ES.

Updates:
There were 6 points difference, not the usual 1 tick.
@2896.75 LOD ES 10M
@2890.25 LOD MES 4M

MES going up as [2855.00-2917.50] 1stHwb38%L2893-2889-2879 T127-141%2934-2943!hitEOD T162%2956!hitMON
potential ahaTrade for pullbackLong next week.
@2953.25 HOD = priorHigh anchor retested = 70.7%buButterfly (potential AlgoDUEL--see Flowchart posted previously)

Actions taken MES:
#near McDreamyT2 @2956
[$]TakingProfit4Long(haft).EOD
[x]hedgeSwing8Short.EOD (FRI.CD3 likely GapDownOpen on SUN reOpen)

ES going up in extension instead, if not keep going up then will likely fail just to retest ahaTrade.
Not taking profit, but IF don't have enough margin to hold overnight THEN take haft off; otherwise use the other sub-account to take 'hedging' positions.
[x]hedgeSwing2Short.EOD

Dropping ALL in/ALL out strategy? Why? see trade plan posting, next.

1S2K4MES:TradePlan.Weekly

Week #41
2019 10/7-10/11

There is no major event scheduled beside WED FOMC Minutes @2pmET...but FED Powell speaks 3 out of 5 days.
In addition, the 'time out' has coming to an end... as China marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the communist People’s Republic on last Tuesday; China Market reOpen on Monday night after closing for Golden Week National Holiday. Therefore, a potential for a pullback to shake out weak-hand with stop-run.

ES has one more day to Pump-it-up before Tariffs (deadline on October 15th) news begin to influence the US market.

Backup Plan: Shake & Bake (stop-run)
[]30 points more to hit OpEX T2985
[x]@2825-2810 DTop Neckline heldUp
[x]@2859 Weekly 50EMA heldUp
IF @2855 was Hit & Run in cDEC contracts for new high T3100ish THEN don't want to loose the "General" as a Runner
Depending on RTH price action on Monday, likely take 1/2 off to reduce risk but keep Runner below @2810 Double Top Neckline Structural-stop

Backup Plan to the Backup Plan: Pump & Dump
[x]@2953.75 priorHigh = 70.7% buButterfly (AlgoDUEL potential)
[ ]@2975 appoaching 240M WlyPVT
[ ]@2980-2995 ptBD reTest
[ ]@2989-3006 PRZ.PotentialReversalZone

Need to not only 'go ES go' but 'run ES run'!

1S2K4MES:YoyoMarket?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvjdxnaHPfk
Enjoy the song "The Gambler" (with Lyrics) - Kenny Rogers

Week#41
2019 10/09 WED.CD3
FOMC Minutes

Yoyo Market or Pro-trader's Dream for Extreme Volatility with wild-swing in nano-second?
Hmmm, it's more like "Anything Goes"!

Four out of Six high probability trade-able setups were in full force and fast speed mode...
There were more or less predictable, especially for both 10M ABC triangle patterns that started with
"ptD200%Max" {2934.25-2906.50-2929.50}near EOD, and then ended with returning to
"SOC.SceneOfCrime" {2929.50-2881.75-2923.00} after 6pmET reOpen.

Cypher LaLaLand in 4M and 10M all day long but it was a 10M beCypher.ptD2928 selling off before 4pmET.

What is holding up for days so far, this week? The same ahaTrade posted previously.
What is behind the Bulls? nextLIS@2851-2810 + ES 240M ABC pattern {2855.00-2959.50-2888.25} T3014
What is behind the Bears? nextLIS@2961-2995 + MES 120M ABC pattern {2959.50-2888.25-2932.00}T2841

It's a battle for LIS on both sides... to kill time? Time for what?
U.S. and China trade deal (more like talks) Thursday
Still searching of the Seasonal October's Low... how LOW can it goes?
Just look at the WEEKLY chart, yikes? Better to hold roll.SwingS3020ish for now.
Updated after Thursday closing:
@2926.25 LTOD.LowTickOfDay = signal addBUY but I didn't really break-out until after 4:30pmET.
Ever wonder why @2907 was holding uo?
Just look at ES 240M and the attached MES 30M RTH chart for FibsInversionUp of the previous ABC triangle.


This is the last briefing updates for the third Journal Series 1Shot2Kill4MES.Swing2Go#IP@ITP
Why ask why? See the next Evernote posting, coming next.

Enjoy the song "It's Now or Never" - Elvis Presley

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s385/sh/08585582-33ba-4c37-b447-9a4173098cc5/805aca8746b4c5fc8ee620e6e161033b

I broke the rule of Eat, Sleep, Homework, and Trade just because "It's Now or Never" invitation from
my sister to visit Graceland for a quick get-a-way trip on September 30th, and October 1st, 2019
(the busiest Last & First Day of the Month for trading).

Glad that I came and stayed at The Guest House at Graceland. Enjoy every moment of every day there!

Trading has to be on hold along with other journal-ing projects because I am packing to go again...
* attending a family wedding out-of-town this weekend, and then
* flying to Houston (no internet connection, just Personal Hotspot via iPhone) for the 2nd summer
vacation that I postponed last May ... so there goes October with trading on the Go!

It's time to close this third journal series now but will post the SummaryIII:1Shot2Kill4MES.FibsInversion
(80% completion) sometime in October.

Due to personal commitments--pursuing other dreams in preparation for the next chapter of my life...
there won't be any travel plans in the next two years; furthermore, the next Journal Series 1Shot2Kill:AnythingGoes!
will be postponed as well. It still will be in non-elite trading journals as before because I believe that it's more beneficial
to the newbies who could shorten their learning curves. Read more about it in the Evernote link above.

Let's leave it to fate finding my journal series, become a smarter trader!
