Today
6E: +$12.50
TF: flat
CL: flat

YTD
6E: -$250.00
TF: -$20.00
CL: -$1000.00

Trade #1
This was near the LOD after a flat morning. Was expecting a strong break of the low. When it bounced off the LOD, moved to BE+1 where I was stopped out.

Placed a couple of limit orders on the way up, but didn't get filled. After that 65 tick run mid morning I thought the market was too extended to go long, so I ignored a couple of long signals. Winners, of course.

Great day for following rules. Bad day for making money.

Trade #1
Price failed to make a HH after the last push above the EMA. This last push on the 07:24 bar was a weak green candle, with the next bar closing under the EMA. Measured 7 ticks down from the last pivot high and entered a limit order. Stopped out. -8 ticks.

Trade #2
Price dropped through 1.4197 support and started a retrace back to the EMA. The 08:36 bar trapped longs and reversed short. Entered short on next bar. Had some alarms go off when price broke the bottom of the last green candle where the trapped longs should have gotten out. I was expecting price to continue down after breaking 1.4186 but it didn't. Had 5 MFE and was dying to move to BE+1 on the next bar but opted to hold steady. -8 ticks.

Trade #3
This was the pullback to the EMA I was looking for, and a small bar formed at 08:51 with more trapped longs. Entered a stop order under that bar. -5 ticks.

6E Trade #1
The Euro had been in a down trend all morning, then as it popped above the EMA it broke the higher time frame trend line. Had a green bar bounce off the EMA and I went long 7 ticks above that swing low. -8 ticks

TF Trade #1
Price started to roll late morning. Went short on the close of the red inside bar. Resisted the urge to move to BE+1 quickly. This time it was a mistake. -6 ticks.

Didn't do a good job on taking all the trades. Seemed like every time a setup appeared, it was near the HOD. Price just kept going up.

Today seemed fun. Don't know why it was different than any other day, but I just really enjoyed myself. Only made 1 stupid mistake.

6E Trade #1
The morning session was flat/up and price started making HL. The big red candle at 05:15 failed to drive the market down. Went long 1.4280 and was looking for a break of the 1.4285-ish resistance level. Tightened my stop up after the 05:33 bar. When price failed to push higher, moved to BE+1 and got out with 1 tick of slip. 0 ticks.

6E Trade #2
After the failed move higher, was looking for a breakdown. Entered off a 1 min chart, but didn't get the movement I was looking for. Moved to BE+1. +1 tick.

6E Trade #3
Total mistake. Entered this before the bar closed and paid the price. -4 ticks.

TF Trade #1
Price surged after the open. Tried to catch the first pullback and was looking for new highs. News was coming at 7am, so I didn't want to linger. Moved to BE+1 after the 06:54 bar failed to go higher. Got 1 tick of slip. 0 ticks.

TF Trade #2
I was working on something else and thought I was in sim! A valid setup, but still... -4 ticks.

Three dumb mistakes and one crack under pressure. Every trade had a problem. Added up to a bad day.

6E Trade #1
Traded too close to the news and right behind major barbed wire. Enough said. -8 ticks.

6E Trade #2
Too focused on pivots to notice that price was making HH's and HL's and this was not a short signal. Plus it was right at the market open, just to add volatility to the mix. -8 ticks.

6E Trade #3
Took 7 ticks of heat on my 8 tick stop, but held it for 2 more bars. Even said to myself the worst was over, but wanted out of the trade. Cut a winner short. +1 tick.

TF Trade #1
I missed the original entry on this which would have resulted in a BE+1 trade. I rationalized this by thinking the 08:03 bar was price rejection, and the market was going down. -8 ticks.
