Running behind Quick prep.
Es has leged out overnight and very stretched.
Eur/Usd is still in a macro correction.

Today could and should have been a good day but a bad exit on the ES and bad fills killed a good day. I also had meetings @ 11:00 cst time so I missed some good trades in the afternoon.

ES 1 Trade +1.50
Euro 1 stratch 1 loser and 1 winner +40 pips @10000k

I changed a setting on my ninja for a10th of a pip and now some of my buy and sell stops are not whole numbers. I think this might be the reason for the bad fills. I had some slippage before but never this bad. This is also why I'm using 70 range chart vs. 7 range.

Again I got out to early and cost my self a excellent day. I've made money almost every day but I seem to be leaving to much on the table. I missed alot of the morning and afternoon session.

ES 1 loser 1 mistake and 2 winners + 4pts
Eur/Usd 1 mistake 1 winner/scratch +9 pips

Both markets moving up to key resistance area's

The ES is in a Bull flag on the daily and hitting the top of the range. A key level to go long or short is the retest of 1324 area.

Eur/Usd is moving up to the 1.4345 area with a hold of 1.4180

Both the ES and Euro are very stretched, but could squeeze shorts out further.

Euro is at major resistance 1.4430 but still could bust through. Key area 1.4370 for longs we need to hold and for shorts any break.

ES is a major resistance and stretched also, I'm waiting for a other test of 1345 area for failure or break above.

Shorts would be taken after failure at 1345 for the second test.
Longs after a pull back and failure to brake lower(failed continuation).

Patience is the key today, wait for levels to beak or hold.
