Hand chart

One of the 2 hand charts I draw. This one - which I haven't done for 2 weeks, needs yesterday's H&L (and times), the overnight session- 15;15 to 7:30 not 8:30- H&L (and times) and the preopen data.

Dir 30

Dir 30 is a visual way for me to help decide on the first move after opening.
Today it would indicate down towards 1319.25 and lower.
That is FEa=LE

Thursday -cabbage?

It seems like fate - negative fate.

When I do get up with the alarm 3:30pst and I am more or less ready by open then we get a narrow range day.

{This is why I am so pissed that woofer dan stole the best trading week (the one two weeks ago with great wide ranging days) for his drinking partying binge. It not only his life he is pissing down the drain.}

Oh well, onwards and upwards.

This morning I was up at 3:40am - a big accomplishment. I'm very tired.
Then I entered the overnight data and saw it was going to be a dismal choppy little inside day -argh!!


The overnight range was a pathetic -4.00 pts and the pre-open range -2.00!
(Normal would be twice that as a minimum , i.e. 8 pts and 4pts - these are separate ranges an can be overlapping.)

----------
no fills on o/n orders, surprise surprise.

I've cancelled them.

Maybe I'll put in a little trade in the "chop/slop" and then snooze.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
