Night Night sleepy head ! 

So my thoughts aligned with your first hypo for the direc­tion of the mar­ket. Ini­tial­ly i saw what i thought was a con­fir­ma­tion of my
price still over extended
as soon as the lon­don ses­sion opens heads lower.
C&D TPO’s con­tin­ue down and main­tain price out­side of IB
Pre­vi­ous swing low is broken
Look left, no signs of resis­tance for a short
Bear­ish can­dle pat­tern on the 5min TF.
Enter short on a pullback
Ini­tial­ly trade goes my way, i see the short momen­tum is lost, move S/L to B/E. I get stopped out B/E

So obvi­ous­ly there was still some momen­tum left in the Gas tank. So the ques­tion is:
1.What fac­tors should be used to deter­mine if a move still has momen­tum so as to not jump in early ?
2.What fac­tors should be used to deter­mine that a move has lost all its momentum ?
3. Or am i just not read­ing the mar­ket correctly ?

Thank you Sire for your answers. For la famil­ia, Gracias.


whats up homie. still grind­ing. fin­ished the course, find­ing my weak­ness­es. cur­rent­ly in an Apex chal­lenge. up in prof­it. get­ting a lit­tle bet­ter every­day. Need to do my weekly/daily plans. right now doing them in my head ( not the best ). found CL to be my best asset to trade, so for right now i only trade CL NY ses­sion 1/2 trades per day.

Over extend­ed, meaing price is in Qpoint extremes and zones extremes.
Break of IB or trad­ing out­side IBR.
1. Thank you for help­ing me real­ize that deci­sions are not based on 5min TF. Oopsie

Thank you for that video, She point­ed out the prob­lem per­fect­ly. My Entry/strategy is wrong.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
