I'm assuming you are CST on your times.
Some great long setups in the first hour, one at 8:42 (though didn't really have an area), 8:46 another long setup with 2.5+ pts (lot of reasons to take this--I'm not going to give away NFT trading setups though)
9:03 another long (though you didn't have great MACD setups, you had quite a few other things going to pull the trigger, that would have netted you 3+ pts on 1/2 your contracts and if you followed the rules would have taken 6+ pts on the rest)
You didn't have a foot (need to understand what it takes to develop a foot) on 377 at 10:03 CST, though you had great separation.
Good short setups after 9:30 (in a key area), but I only look at the first hour of regular market.
Hope to see you go beyond the trial and really learn what it takes to understand the market, your self and become a successful trader.

Well, I am steps from Kapiolani Park and I have to be honest, I was a bit concerned as Ambulances, Fire Trucks and Police Cars were going through my neighborhood all night warning that if you aren't over a certain height to evacuate and finder higher ground. (Ok, so how the heck do I know what height...haha, I guessed 50+ feet)
I haven't seen this level of concern EVER since I have been here since 94'. If I didn't have small children I think I would not be as concerned. I used to have an oceanfront home in HILO no less just a few years ago and I would wake up at night thinking that I had felt an earthquake.
I developed a parcel in a tidal inundation zone and as part of the process I had to have evacuation plans and contingencies set up for my permitting and so that required significant education. I can tell you what I learned is just strictly frightening and if people had seen what I learned they would not be paying $10MM for an oceanfront home on any part of the islands. (For example, a 15' meter swell could come through within 10-15 minutes of the earthquake!! TALK ABOUT NOT TIME TO GET DRESSED, happened in mid-70's in Kailua-Kona!).
Hilo has the 'rap' for Tsunami's, but that is mainly because it was the most populated 'bay' area that is northward facing. Now, in the last 50 years we have developed almost all our coastlines (as you know) and I can tell you that it will not be pretty the next time something like the 60' tsunami happens.
Having been a special forces Navy (SEAL) diver, surfer, and just all around idiot in the water for years, I truly do appreciate how destructive the ocean can be.
It is funny though, out of all the things to be concerned about in life (Tornado's, Hurricane's, Poisonous Creatures, etc.) Hawaii really only has Political Corruption and the occasional Tsunami warning. So, I guess we have it pretty good. haha...

Wow! I know those sirens well! And it's the worst when they go off in the middle of the night like that. Not a good feeling. I agree, it's pretty scary to think how quickly a tsunami can hit with very little time to react. Being a surfer as well, I have great respect for the power of the ocean and I grew up surfing the north shore on Oahu so, I've experienced it first hand. I could only imagine what the power of a tsunami could do.
