Read­ing the Tape

  • What is printing? 
    • 15:05
      • Pos­si­ble TTF200MACAR / PPOC CAR with dou­ble top, HTF R still in effect, TTF R might go into effect as well
    • 15:35
      • TTF show­ing full-bod­ied can­dles, pos­si­ble A/D, KC nar­row could see a TTF NT
      • Edit: no A/D instead less liq­uid­i­ty (spread is 48/49) because of Memo­r­i­al day + ear­ly close (US), Spring Bank Hol­i­day in UK, 
    • 16:05
      • Mar­ket has not made a move. I will not update this until some­thing happens.
    • 16:35
      • N/A
    • 17:05
      • Crossed TTF50MA on slight­ly high­er momen­tum and then died off again
    • 17:35
      • There was a TTF R TC set­up although not much fol­low-through on the move
    • 18:05
      • HTF TTF and LTF all flat
    • 18:35
      • N/A
    • 19:05
      • Test­ing of TTF200MA pos­si­ble BO
    • 19:35
      • TTF200MABO attempt

Trade Man­age­ment

Explain what trade you put on (include price, SL, TP) and what your thoughts are dur­ing the trade

  • T1 (2nd account, experimental)
    • Why? What do I see?
      • HTF
        • HTF R 50MABO
      • TTF
        • TTF R TC
        • Long Entry 10 @ 58.61
      • LTF
        • LTF T + PB to TTF50MA 
        • LTFLKCCAS
    • SL
      • 58.44
    • TP
      • 58.85
    • Trade Man­age­ment
      • I feel calm. HTF is show­ing a pos­si­ble move from 50MA to UKC so TP is below that. UKC is at 59.05 area TP is at 58.85
      • NY liq­uid­i­ty might cause trou­ble in a bit though
        • Price just dropped to VWAP again and we might be BD here
        • Last 5 min before NY open
      • Even though I think that I will get stopped out, sell­ers can’t seem to bring price down as well we are still above TTF VWAP

  • Week­ly Goal
    • Only take A+ (TTF TC) and A (TTF NT) setups to build a track record to ana­lyze later. 
  • Review
    • Kin­da rushed a bit through my mar­ket prep because of lack of time due to oth­er commitments
    • Almost did not take a trade until very late in the ses­sion. I took a set­up that I have been exper­i­ment­ing with on my 2nd account. It got stopped out although still look­ing as if it will go my way. I will take note of this for my playbook.

00-----Low Liq­uid­i­ty because of Memo­r­i­al Day hol­i­day + Spring Bank Hol­i­day in UKPA does­n’t act in a way that is con­ducive for my setups
00TTF R TC (exper­i­men­tal)-10SOStopped out--
  • How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket context?
    • Didn’t take into account that today’s is Memo­r­i­al day + Spring Bank Hol­i­day in the UK cause of low liq­uid­i­ty in the mar­ket also con­firmed by the wider than nor­mal spreads. So my Hypos were not good. 
  • How well did I man­age my phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al and cog­ni­tive states?
    • Did well here.
  • What’s one thing you learned today?
    • When the reports don’t come out on Tues/Wednesday keep in mind that there is a hol­i­day in the week. Remem­ber this as part of your process. 
  • What’s one thing I need to do more often?
    • Be patient and let the mar­ket lead no mat­ter how long you have to wait for your set­up to arise. 
  • What’s one thing I need to do less often?
    • Can’t think of any­thing now
