I'm still trading small but I am feeling better but not yet up to par.

2 trades 2 winners + 21 Ticks

I need to not move my stops or move them to breakeven if a trade is going against me. I did reenter which is better then watching it go downand not being on board.

My prep was right on today in the ES an YM

4 trades today on the YM. I tried to short it 3 times before I realized that was the wrong direction. This trade is a great example of why you must know when a market is pre-corrective or post corrective both micro and Macro. The failed micro continuation at 50% retracement of the last Macro leg was a great place for a short squeeze.

4 trades one winner, 2 lossers and one breakeven + 50 Ticks

I went against some of my rules and lost a little on 5/19 and missed alot of the action today because of a meeting.
I need to start earlier in the morning, I'm missing things between 5:00am Cst and 7:00am Cst.

5/19 2 winners and 2 lossers -26 pips @ 10000k
5/20 2 trades 1 winner and 1 breakeven +15 @10000k

not great for the movement, Stick to your rules and don't move stops.

Both the Euro and ES are stretched and pre corrective.

Watch for both to corrective and possibly leg out for another action move.

Any signs of a correction and I'll be long for a scalp.

+ 1.75 ES 1 winner 1 losser and 1 mistake
-14 ticks YM 1 loser

I made some mistakes in the Euro that cost me alot of equity. But I fought back to have a positive day. I can have easy sailing if I stick to my rules.

Eur/Usd +22 Pips @ 10000k

ES and Euro prep for today:

Euro and ES are corrective and I'm watch for any failure around 1/3 to 2/3 of last Leg for any shorts and hitting longs with caution.
