4trades..all shorts on pbs after LLs

Theme today was rangy price action.When we are having DDBs with LLs its ok to still short...just not at the 1min200.Look for deeper pbs into sell zones/1min200.Any overshoot of a reasonable sell zone with a sell candle can be a sell.This saved me today.I took stops,but reshorting these areas enabled me to scratch the day with 4 ticks.

I am going to be doing my videos now during the session starting when I log on.Quick 10 second descriptions for each 5minutes.Too many times I look back at the chart and realize, had i taken every entry,the day would have been better.Case in point.There were 2 entries ..short at 5:25...reverse long at 5:55....short at 6:15...sorry 3 entries.

I miss/pass on too many entries.Time to tighten it up,and be disciplined

no trades today.Alsmost had 1 short, but it just couldn't come a hair more to grab me.After yesterdays -46 tick day, I was pissed.There is absolutely no reason why , when I come in at 5am ,for me to be anxious,or hesitant.

It points out 2 very important issues.

1)I don't have my trade plan quite specific enough to execute

2)as a result, I'm not dead set on my trade plan.

I sat down yesterday, and went through the last 2 weeks of charts.Its so obvious to me the best days are aligned.(emas).On these days,i will be aggressive,adding at strategic levels with the trend.These days are so important, because measured moves with the trend can provide bigger gains.
1)trade in the direction of trend into levels of s/r

That's it.There are other trades ,sure.For now tho, its not time to be cute.Its time to step up and start logging some ticks,and earning a days fucking pay.

feb 4

Started off the day getting a great fade entry just off the lod/ylod.Typically , the 1st hit of this level(ylod) has a bounce.DDB with a nice buy hammer im in,SL below ylod.On the way up, we closed above the 5min 60.This is a buy for me on a pb to 1min200.So I added.I kinda tuned out at that point.I wanted to scale at 5min200.We never got there.It decided to roll over.It was very clear on the 1min.Im really trying to let these trades run there course,but with the emas intact for the short, it was a bad choice on this play.Then it stops me out at lod...i hate that

.After a nlod, i decided to reshort the 1min200 on the pb and got run over.This got run over pretty quick, and I figured I would add at5min200,and try and get out on that pb.Bad idea there,as it blasted.I added one more time, as it shot towards the hod.I got lucky there, and covered for a scratch.This is a perfect example of how I can get into real trouble.

The trade was invalid once it closed above the 5min60.If anything, I could have looked for a pb long to the 1min200(never happened)

-34 ticks today..could have been much worse
