hi traders,

it was really "stormy" market, today..hm? I thought, that I will fall in sleep. No, I am just kidding. There is always some space for trades, if you can look at the market without too high expectation in such a day like this monday.

As volume raised on a new contract, I followed the crowd and went on 08-11. Price didnīt have too much space and first hour showed that we will fight in strong balance day. Borders were made of fridayīs low and close...it can be also taken as last weekīs low and close. It means for me quite strong areas.

I took only one trade, long entry: bounce from ema, breakout of descending channel, breakout of previous 30 min inside bar,.... PT: HOD

it looked good, really good. I followed the price as usual, but then it stoped 3 ticks in front of my PT order. I did a mistake - I moved my stop loss back to make a space for possible pullback, but it wasnīt enough and it ate almost 10 ticks of profit. I am still trying to take almost on tick preciselly signals for entry / exit. I am missing the feeling, when it should be "the right" place, time. ok , it is another profitable day, I should be happy ( I am ) .

bad day, but not a bad feeling..I realized my mistakes and that is good. And what happened? I took couple trades in slim descending channel, but I tried to trade it up. Really bad idea, doesnīt matter, that there was a visible signal. And my last trade was completely stupid, I just wanted to catch breakout of previous candle. If I would follow my rules, it would be much better result.

I had many nice ocassions, but I didnīt squeeze it enough. During my session I was focused on break-outs from channels, intraday trend showed me the way to the long side. It would be ok, if I were more patient since beginning, but my first trade got me into red numbers, I didnīt wait for confirmation. Next trades had a good timing for entry, I aimed always for HOD, which worked in second trade. Then it pushed price to another level so I waited for the last ocassion, it was a nice bounce from s/r area ( 15.6. OPEN/CLOSE ) . But my management of trade was too tight for this situation.

I am happy, that I am still in green numbers and above 50% W/L ratio in this month...never happened to me before . My usual win/loss ratio is around 35 percent max. Looking forward at the end of month.

Very good trading!

Your technique is interesting and I like the simplicity of it! You had some tough trades where it was entry on the tick for retrace and just knocked you out and ran, but it shows that you only need one or two good one's and you are it!



I am curious. How are you using the Daily and 30Min charts? For trendlines only or ????

Hi Blue,

I use 30 min chart to analyze in what type of move is market ..if it is in balance mood, or out of balance. Then I use previous bar OHLC as a short-term s/r levels for entry. I like, when new barīs price is acting with those levels. If it goes up, there is often visible ( on smaller time-frame) bounce from High, or close of previous 30 min candle. When it happens and I got a valid signal, I take it.

Daily, weekly, monthly charts... I am using it mainly for drawing s/r lines, which are made of OHLC values(purple dashed lines). It works really good, I have found out, that there must be a straight visibility on those candles, I have attached some chart.

Now I am in process of making my decision easier when and where to enter, this is still one of my unsolved area..still digging too much around "death zones", which represents choppy places after long runs.

Thank you for your interest.

best regards

Robert
