@ adjustments on my AA trade .This a trade thats in a trend, and i have a resting lmit order at the edge of value.For ex, when in downtrend below yest lod, a pb to sd -1 there will be a resting short order.Note the long range DDBs.Thats another thing.For AA to be a trade, needs to be a convergent LL on the macd to allow the short.I actually saw this this morning, and i wanted to see if i could atleast get my first scale.nope on all.Some of the trend trades i took this am were not beyond yest range...for a shortrend trade, we need to be below YLOD.This is with the goal of exploring lower when stops get triggered

No trades today.We had a good trend trade on GBPUSD, which didnt get reached for a fill.Over the weekend, going over notes,videos,and pics.I have another trade which i will start to execute.It happens in current day value, and can be very good i believe.Today here were a few, and it seems much more prevelant than the trend pb entry.The good thing, is, it sets it up for the 1st pb in a new trend.Ive always thought, its good to look for pbs in a trend.But, is there a way to get in at the origination of the move.I believe this is it.EURUSD was a great example of this.The origination entry was a reject between vwap and sd1.Just below, was ylod.The signal blasted it thru ylod, giving almost 30 pips.

2 trades today.The 1st was a trend pb, and i will take this 1st pb every time.3 scales out,,,nice
2nd trade.fade in sd2 and yest value.Full stop.
there were some 3 c trades.All 3 worked.i had to leave for 15 minutes, and i dont place resting orders when im away.Maybe i should reconsider this.I like this trade theoretically.After a long run, price tries to come back into value.Basically, for a long, on the 30min,price closes back in value, i place a buy limit just above the sd-1.So it gets activated on the pb, giving me a cheaper fill...this seems to happen pretty often.Its really too bad , but today was a scratch day...oh well

no trades yet.I found myself gettingpretty irritated watching these big moves on some of the pairs.I am always inclined to look at the origination of these moves and try to understand if there is an entry that makes sense.In the past(and present) i have often made new rules based on the price action i learned from that day.....only to change them the next.That is just spinning wheels, and a waste of time.Today was an indication that i have to step back,and focus on the larger time frame(30 min for me).What are my tools telling me?I have a few basic tools, and in the correct combination, they are very powerful....that combination is alway shifting,and if i start watching the 3min too closely, i get all jammed up....this is clear, i need to dial down into each setup, and have specific rules(not complicated)based on the 30 min .Getting jammed up means no execution.Oddly,the C trade i have is easy to see....no wonder, its solely based on the 30 min.The CT trade also....The trade that is confusing, is the trade when we are in rth value, and this can setup big moves.The combination changes slightly.So, my goal is to get this dialed in.So i can execute with no hesitation
