On the weekend I updated my handchart for the ES.

It's amazing how much you notice when you do it by hand.

The estimates are made before open.
Usually there is more confidence in one end and today it was the high end 1741.50 area.
The first end was determined by the short term indicators and the signal was to buy < 1732.50 once you have confirmation of the indicators and at a time somewhere near the open.
Today it was 1730.25 at 8:39

Once in the trade long you are focused to the second end, the high (1740.50 area).
Today the actual high was 1740.25 (which you can see was the average of the tricycle and crossed arcs high estimates.

Friday 18 Oct 2013
Just for fun

the red 1755 is a gann rectangle possible major turn level.
the black 1756.75 is a jury rigged 8.5 pts per week from 1340.25
1752 is the number reduction estimate

Separately (on a new untried system I have 18 Oct 2013 as a possible date for a swing high (which would make today's high 1740.25 the high) .

breaking $98 area looks to cement triple top

(note 5 year and 1 year are continuous contract charts with mixed prices so look to cash market find 50% and then look for resistance near that.)

Hi Rad,

thanks.

no I was exhausted this morning (as per video post above "dentist"). Family stress etc and I just couldn't get up.
I tried and computer prbs as well.

I'm kicking myself around the block and back.
Been waiting all week for this and really needed the trade.

I just don't don't what is going wrong - I must have pissed on God's shoes without knowing it.

I just can't understand...
(and if you've been following the CIT thread you knew this was "baked-in")

oh well, one foot in front of the other.

Someone told me this year 2013 was my personal year of "test and trial" -year 4.
Sure has been!!


keep trucking it can't rain forever ---- I hope

peace, love and joy to you
