Nice. Do you automate all the trading?

@eminikelvin

Thanks.

I automate (that is compute with formulae) all my estimates of price and time.
Then I try to select the right ones for the day.
I think getting the first end correct is the key and sometimes a struggle to get it.

So I would enter the orders (manually) and then when I get close use indicators and price action to trigger the trade.

My "system" is designed for days of 12 pts or more - so little narrow days like these - I would trade sim. - or just do more work on my system.

..........
peace, love and joy to you

Late start this morning
(another bad sleep)
and looks like I missed the move of the day
Now at support 1959.75 area.
Probably time for old Yeller to push the "buy" button at GS

I'm trying to get up earlier and go to bed on time - so late right now

I posted several videos in a thread "Video Tips and Tricks" - doesn't seem to get much interest.

I'm working on trying to find time for visualizations. - seems tough for me to do.

I've been off for a few months - back taxes and then catching up on my stats gathering and updating of my spreadsheets. So I'm back trading on the sim and when I can make 25pts in a week I switch to cash.
25pts *$50 = $1250
Monday $29
Tuesday $247 (I was at +400 and then wanted the extra $100 was up $86 and went to the washroom came back and down $169)

Not pleased with my trading as I had FE=HE and a price of 1975.50.
With an open of 1972.25
and dir30 upto 1974.00 it was a slam dunk to get to 75.50

Oh well tomorrow..
