Mar­ket Narrative

D1 sup­ply was formed and the open sen­ti­ment was below val­ue and with­in range. A con­tin­u­a­tion was pos­si­ble. Although with trend being up 2/3 and close prox­im­i­ty to val­ue edge a val­ue accep­tance was more likely.

How was the Entry?

I wait­ed for a M15 accep­tance of val­ue. Then I wait­ed for a pull­back which didn’t real­ly come as much. I was hop­ing for a re-test of VAL before going long but when I saw M5 unable to pull­back fur­ther down I just went long. This was good. 

Although it could have been bet­ter. Due to the nature of equi­ties and the Frankie Fake­out I could have gone long before wait­ing for a con­fir­ma­tion of accep­tance of val­ue. In oth­er assets this is a big no-no. Along these lines I could have entered on the close of the M30 RBR and got­ten a bet­ter entry.

How was the SL place­ment and sizing?

Stan­dard siz­ing. Although I should have scaled my stop better. 

If I had that bet­ter entry I could have eas­i­ly got­ten a 2R prof­it tar­get with bet­ter scal­ing of the stop at about 15 pips. 

How was the prof­it target?

Prof­it tar­get was tillLTF sup­ply at ASR exhaus­tion and wasn’t much on my entry and SL scal­ing. Again if I had used bet­ter scal­ing this could have been bet­ter. Even more so with that bet­ter entry.

How was the Exit?

When price hit LTF sup­ply with­in val­ue I took 0.6R. Basi­cal­ly scratch­ing on the dat at ‑0.1R with the first bad trade.

What would a price action-based exit have done for the trade?


What would a time-based exit have done for the trade?


What did I do well?

I did well to quick­ly change my bias and wait for price action to con­firm said bias and then exe­cute on it.

What could I have done better?

I know now that I could have entered ear­li­er as was instruct­ed by my men­tor Dee based on the Frankie fake­out there was no need to wait for accep­tance of value. 


Equi­ties and Frankie Fake­out can supercede the con­di­tions of a val­ue acceptance.
