Saturday wrap-up

Last night (friday) Woofer Dan had his music going until after midnight. That means when I woke up this morning it was after 10:30am PST and way past my goal of keeping the weekday sleeping schedule. What does this mean sports fans?

According to the "Woofer Dan" indicator Monday will be a range expansion day.

How so? well odds are I won't be able to be back on schedule til Friday so if I sleep in on Monday then the range should expand from Fridays 9pt range to a tradeable range 15pts plus.

Other news: walk score 5 for 7 (missed Thurs and Friday evenings working). Its a beautiful day so time to break away from the beast and go for a walk!!

Good trading to everyone.

market profile

Hi everyone,

I don't use market profile but I have received an email from a free Larry Levin subscription I have.
I've posted on a blog (respecting futures.io (formerly BMT) cp reg) and as there is the link to subscribe if you want in part 3 I'm sure its Ok.

it's in 3 parts because the blog kept saying too long..

in any case it was way too much work/time to post it so you'll have to subscribe from now on.

I hope it helps.

Good trading to everyone.

In the first trade for Monday

I am long at 1325.75 with a sell stop at -5, i.e. 1321.75.
My target is 1337.75

For Monday RTH I currently have:
est high 1338
est low 1328.25

-------
I am very tired. The neighbours below my started fighting at 7:30 Saturday night. I thought well in 15 minutes she give up screaming at him. After 30 minutes I gave up the I idea of sleeping and went to the local coffee shop. I returned around 9:45 and she had finally stopped yelling at him. I didn't get to sleep right away and woke up at 1am , 2am and 3am. I got up. So I've been up 16 hrs on 4-5hrs of troubled sleep.
---------------
I'm so tired I can't think straight.

Good trading to everyone.

Monday 4 April = cabbage and computer prbs


Trades
Bot 1 1325.75 @ 20:57
Sld 1 1328.75 @ 15:02

= +3.0


Conditions
Slept 8:30 pm to 6:20 am PST. Woken up by screaming neighbor (1am to 1:45am) =9hrs sleep.


Setup = Previous even estimates of HL. Bot at low.

Trade
I entered the trade will still on the computer. I wasn’t online again til 10:30amCT and the high of 1332.75 was past. Waited til towards the end of day to close the trade and get a little more from it.

Post Op
I need to spend time on a reliable indicator for range expansion. My time schedule is so full that I am just not making progress on these ‘optional’ issues. Perhaps it would be best to leave the computer off for a weekday (except for wrap-up number gathering) and work on these long term ideas.

Good trading to everyone.
