plan:

buyers were found at yday’s low, displaying bullishness. buyers broke above the line in the sand at 33.5 and ON made a lower high, failing to test yday’s high. because of the failure to test yday’s high, there is pressure on the 33.5-31.75 support zone. below 31.75, expecting yday’s low at 18.75ish, where I’d expect responsive buyers on first test. below yday’s low, I’d expect 15.5-14, where i’d also expect responsive buyers on first test. above 31.75, yday’s high is the target, where I’d expect responsive sellers on first test, then above yday’s high, I’d expect 61, where I’d expect responsive sellers on first test.


update:

33.5 is the line in the sand on the short-term, where I’d expect responsive sellers to be active. above this level, I’m expecting yday’s high, where I’d expect responsive sellers to be active at on first test. below 33.5, target is yday’s low and then 15.5-14, both of which where I’d expect responsive buyers on first test.

pre-plan:

bears really wouldn’t want to see buyers able to hold price above 61
above 61, the target is 06s+, then 57s. above 57s, huge pic is bullish
below 61, potential for pullback to 38s
below 38s, picture turns bearish and there is potential for 18s to break eventually
news:

mba purchase applications at 7.00 - high
durable goods orders at 8.30 – imp – medium
fhfa house price index at 10.00 – low
eia petroleum status report at 10.30 – imp –medium

1000 views!!!!


plan:

expecting responsive sellers to be active at 61 today, but ON brings that into question as there was a pull to the 42s ON. if buyers can’t hold price above 50.5 (expecting responsive buyers here on first test), the expectation is is that sellers will take price to the 38.25-40 support zone, where I’d expect responsive buyers to be active. above 61, expecting responsive sellers to be active at 77.5-76.5, then 83.25-84.25, then 91.5-92.5. below 38, sellers are in control and expecting 18s eventually.

if buyers fail to test yday's high, 39s-38s are expected.

attached is a 100k chart with the balance areas and the composite which i use to help define targets/where i'd expect responsive buyers/sellers to be active.

1 trade that didn't work out. the other trade occurred because i accidentally clicked the "buy" button on my ninja (i have it off non-confirm). this volatility makes it hard as hell to find an entry and hard as hell to manage the trade once i've found an entry.

i'm working on trading a plan for a trade - as in no more trades in the middle of nowhere, but only at important zones according to the higher time-frames because i'd rather have larger players trading with me and not be caught in the swings in-between imp zones. this will considerably reduce my trades per day and most likely increase the size of my average winning day. the one winner i had today was traded like this. also, i have to properly set a stop-loss level instead of trying to always predict when the perfect entry is... it's a lot less possible to pin-point the perfect entry in this market ATM.

i think these tweaks to my game will be for the better and will increase the clarity i have during the day and ultimately my confidence in taking the trades.
