tuesday
2 trades
+15 ticks net
bothe trades went to +16 with little pb.
**********march contract at 1/3 of total vol, but feb vol was decent.I passed on the 1st trade, as i had just walked in the door.We place alot of emphasis on the close price of the candles, and i have a line on close ch, which is just for visual.The candle chart obviously gives the close also, but the line ch helps me see where the price action is closing, and i like that.The breakdown trade at 10:20 ish is something the line ch pointed out.Back to basics..no more 4 range.Also, the 3 min line ch was in line for these trades as well.Gonna pack it in, early.Havent been feeling that great, and im also trying to cut back on the coffee.

No more 4 range? What made you decide to let it go as an indicator? Thats a big change.

I am interested in your thoughts on why at this particular time? Had you been thinking about it a while?

Actually, i was pretty much done with the 4 range, and then i watched perrys video(which i really didnt want to do), and i saw how he was using it.I knew i had to to test it, to see if i could get some use out of it.In Dec, i was doing well, progressing nicely with the 1 min.The addition of the 4 range didnt help, and it was very distracting, so, back to what was working.The reason i dont like to watch webinars on different styles, is, it is very easy to get off track.Perry does well with it, and thats good.If anything, it helped put the 4 range away for good

1 trade
+13 net
market sold off from the open of the cl, past the lod.Out of the 3 best trades , i took one, the 1st.The 3 min was set uo for this drop, so why didnt i execute?these rally days(up or down)usually end up like this.As we make new lows, i dont have belief that the market will continue.The signals on 2 and 3 were nice.This is a scenario that i have always struggled with(among the many)I should have atleast taken #2.

Just embed the file. The option is next to the file when you uploaded it, this will embed the file at your current cursor position.

Alternatively you can use TechSmith | Jing, instant screenshots and screencasts, home as a screen capture tool and instead of saving to your hard drive you can save it to their server and then use the bb code [screencapture]insert screencapture url[/screencapture] and it will auto insert wherever you place the code.

I use it and I think most of the posters use it or something similar.

monday
1 trade
-9 ticks net
tricky day, so many trendlines.Im not sure what the right word is, but, we broke out to the high side.It was very rangy, and erratic.Maybe a higher time frame was appropriate for today.The 3 min gives a better view, but still, nothing great.The 1 trade i took, a short , went 7 , and turned around.
