(1/3) - 65tics -damn it!

Blew-up with 2 losing trades = turn it off for the day....better luck tomorrow.
Got frustrated with the lack of set-up's (missed a few early ones) and my lack of ability to read the chart today....NO trade is better than a DUMB trade....note to self.

Live to fight another day...it's just scalping.

Tough day......(7/10) winners + 52tics at the end was down almost 100tics at one stage then fought back to end the day UP!!
Days like these give you the confidence to keep going when your down but not out!!

Snuck in a late trade but wont bother updating the chart...

Happy Friday!! Done in under 45 minutes.

(3/3) + 56tics

Second trade was a bit risky as no proper set-up bar but the "support" was definitely in play...funny how I ignored Supp/Resist for years but it really DOES make a difference.

Indian Curry Time!!!
