2/1/2012

I had a few trades today on the NQ again. I'm tiring to figure out my entries, they have been either early or late. The area's I've entered are good but again execution is not. I also need to not fight the trend.


6 trades on winner 5 losers -12.50

Prep 2/17/2011

1.3115 is the key area to hold for any upside movement. 1.320 is holding bias down. Shorts off 1.32 are
ok but counter trend watch 1.3115 to hold if short. If we break 1.3115 there is a lot
of room to the down side.

2/16 88 pips
2/17 123 pips

3/2/2012 Prep

We made it down to 1.32 and held bias yesterday. Today we could see a bounce off 1.32 and retest of at least the Micro Bias at 1.3260. If we retest the 1.32 level and can't break it after testing micro bias then I would look for the Euro to retest the highs. If we retest 1.32 and clear it with a good thrust to the down side then I would look to retest 1.3.


I'm looking for longs off of 1.32 with covers at 1.3260 , 1.3360 and 1.35

I'm looking for shorts at 1.3260 and 1.3360 with retest failures (failed continuations).

3/5/2012 Trades

Today is a travel day and undisciplined trading day. I made a little bit but could have made more if I followed my rules. My first trade was ok but I forgot my stop and let the trade get away from me. My second trade was early and I got stopped out. I then had to re-enter for the only good trade of the day. Then my first exit was early, the second was good and my runner should have been left alone.

+10 pips

3/6/2012 Trades

No good trades today, I had a breakeven trade and a mistake getting out of another trade. A little messy trading this week, I need to clean things up. Today the Euro was extended and never moved after 8:00am.

-22 pips with all my mistakes

3/7/2012 Prep

The euro continues down with 1.3150 area holding over night. I would expected the Euro to be range bound to lower today. The Range 1.3100 to 1.3165 and a clear break of 1.31 and down we go.
