Good evening !! did you put your paja­mas on yet and drink your hot milk ? 

1. Larger/ Med TF were are in the mid­dle of Qpoints, Would you rely on Mar­ket pro­file and TPO’s alone to trade today ? or is there some­thing else you would incorporate.

2. How does CPI today affect how you trad­ing ? I feel that usu­al­ly the trad­ing range nar­rows for equi­ties, how does it affect Gold ?

3. apart from the trad­ing plan and jour­nal. Do you have a check­list you look at imme­di­ate­ly before enter­ing a trade ? or is it more discretionary ?

I feel­ing like hav­ing sautéed brains today please

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
