Trade Review

Quick review just to get a trade update out. More detailed trade reviews (and videos!) are on their way. I want to get back into making trading videos and I think I can begin that next week.

Price stuck between a rock and a hard place today it seems, the main level for me today was 12. Just couldn’t get anything on with conviction the entire session and basically ended up taking this trade just to have something on (ok, maybe 50% have something on, 50% 12s holding). I’ve got to make sure I never takes trades just to have a position on or out of boredom. Target 17.75 but once the grinding torture finally went in my favor I closed the trade just to be out of it.

Trade update:

Missed testing .75 by two ticks and then fell off. Buying 13s/14s would have made this trade a bit better.



Hold times are increasing like crazy this week! Let’s say the PnL chart is forming a bullish W and ready for a breakout higher next week….
