no trades.... again because of volatility. volume has been on a decline since monday and friday's volume was about 2 million, which is a little bit higher than the average a few weeks ago.

plan:

normal volatility and volume ON session!!!!! expecting responsive sellers to be active on first test of 1187. idea is for a pullback, with the downside target at 1153.75. expecting responsive buyers to be active at 1165 on first test. line in sand for pullback idea is at 53.75, and that is where I am expecting stronger responsive buyers to be active. below 53.75, buyers may be active on first test of 38-39.5, but eventually expecting 13.5, where I’d expect responsive buyers on first test, then lower. above the ON high and friday’s high at 86.5, expecting 13-15.5, where I’d expect responsive sellers to be active.

6 trades. a couple missed. a couple i shouldn't have taken. 1 i should have held longer for a full runner. 1 trade was a runner, 1 trade was just a first-scale. profitable day.

plan:

below 53.75, it’s more than just a pullback in an upside movement and the larger-term downtrend is expected to continue with 1114 and lower as the expectation. expecting responsive sellers to be active at yday’s low at 1184.25. if buyers can hold above 87.5 short-term line in sand, expecting 98.5 open gap and then 1201.75, which is where I’d expect responsive sellers to be active on first test. below 87.50, downside target is 53.75, but before that expecting responsive buyers to be active at 65. keeping friday’s nvpoc at 76ish plotted because if sellers fail there we could see yday’s high at 91.5.


update:

87.5 has been broken and now expecting prior day’s high at 01.5 eventually. expecting responsive buyers at 84.75 (yday’s low) and the ON low at 79.75. below 79.75, downside target is 53.75.

what a headache today was. i lost focus and objectivity at about 11.00. i didn't have the guts to trade after that. this is definitely something i need to overcome: just continuing trading, pushing through after losses because the next trade, if based on sound analysis, COULD easily make up for those losses and then some.

also got into an argument with someone i know regarding trading... the dumbest thing to do in trading is to talk methods with another. it will only end in an argument.

really was a day that hit me hard emotionally.

sharing an idea: targeting 92-90s. expecting responsive buyers there. 90s are line in sand, below that, 405 min pullback considered complete, but bounces can be expected at support.
