Other Key Levels

. Open auction with roughly 10 pt rotation

. Retested 4495 VWAP + mid and swing high (strong confluence) *good trade set-up that I did not take*
. Trend to 4510 area (new high)
. Pulled back to 4501 VWAP and century figure (confluence) *good trade set-up that I did not take*
. Broke through 4510 previous high to 4517 (new high), so 1TF on daily is continuing

Trades & Notes
I had a late night. Didnít get to the screens until 9:30 CST and was groggy/unprepared, so I decided to make this a study and watch day instead of trading. It was very useful in that sense. I saw 2 longs from tests of VWAP at 4495 and 4501, but I wasnít clear-headed enough to see the confluence that strengthened both of those trades, which was just confirmation that my head wasnít clear enough to trade.

I signed up for a Convergent Trading membership yesterday, so I spent some time getting that set up and I attended a review of todayís session, where the leaders confirmed the 2 longs I saw were strong trades and pointed out the confluence. So, all in all Iím feeling good today although I feel a little frustrated over not setting aside the time to trade live.
