jan 21
pretty slow on this holiday.I took a typical pb short where both 1min and 5min are correctly aligned.I have the macd up still, but as I trade a lot of pullbacks,i find myself using it less and less.

On the chart, I marked out the area where I thought that the macd could be useful.The short was fine,as we headed back up to resistance .But this ultimately failed.The 5min macd diverged higher,pointing out momentum for the longs..

the 5min is aligned for the short the whole time,so essentially it is pushing uphill,despite the macd.# legs up,and a MM(measured move,we made a nhod at a sticky level on the 30 min.I think,in retrospect, this makes sense to short on the 1 min sell candle

If we weren't short from the highs, price came back down to ylod,and the 1min got back in line for a simple pb short at 21 ema.

Going forward I will reference this chart,to be aware of the potential CT trade,and the 2 or 3 legs up/MM to the highs,for the short.These seem like the edges(in retrospect of course)

@Rrrracer here is the wood burning insert.Below zero with windchill in NY today.All heat sytems are CRANKED as I watch the Australian Open

if this weather stays like it is today, I might have to make me one of those fireplaces!

Damn, guys, I know what you mean.

It's something like 54 degrees here now, only going up to 65 today.

I had to wear long-legged pants just to go outside today. Not used to that.

I was a bit careless this past season,and i didnt dry the wood as well as i could have.It takes a bit more to get it going,but once its hot,its fine.Burn baby burn!

JAN 22
1trade with add

Came in this morn at 5ish.I mistakenly passed on 1min sell signal at hod on 1st test above yhod.Target would be 5min 200...So, i took the long,at the 1min 200,traeting this as a pb.Price,got down to 5min 200(just above it) and my order never executed..which is a real bummer.

So, we essentially reset on the 5min,all emas alligned,and i aggressively added on the pb.I saw a mini measured move that brought me to yhod again and covered 1/2.I dont really have a problem with that.Its just a shame that the little mm happened.whatever..

Being patient and waiting for measured moves at nhod is not easy for me.I was in this trade for 3 1/2 hours.I covered at the low of the pb,and that is like a sucker punch.

definately could have traded better and capitalized on today.I look forward to the day when i look at the chart, and say to myself...today offered great opportunities,and i participated correctly in all of themIt doesnt matter if it is 10 ticks or 100.Just take what the market gives...
