Only take trades when there are at least 4 con­flu­ences. Trade loca­tion. Mar­ket Pro­file. Price action con­fir­ma­tion. Fol­low hard entry and exit rules.

Good Ses­sion PECS

Good Trade selection

Good Risk Adjust­ed Returns

Yes Dai­ly review

Mup­pet meter (1 being best — 5 being worst): 2

Sum­ma­ry (include title of the day)

  • Lon­don open below VA but no IB range exten­sion yet
  • I put a sell stop order below IB range at 1.37560 in case of a drop. 20+spread SL at 1.37780, TP 1.37160. Let’s wait for an exten­sion of IB to val­i­date a bear­ish the­sis that includes 1) IB range exten­sion down, 2) M30 Demand break, 3) take out of con­sol­i­da­tion from pre­vi­ous bull engulf­ing on H4, 4) Larg­er time­frames analy­ses being bearish.
  • Trade got exe­cut­ed at 1.37564 SDL 1.37790 TP 1.37170 (slight­ly adjust­ed up)
  • E opened with­in IB and it is slow to print any exten­sion TPOs. Struc­ture being formed at bot­tom third of IB range but will have to reassess at the end of TPO. For now, things are still look­ing bearish.
  • Stop loss got it
  • Anoth­er entry short after that lit­tle shake out
    • Entry 1.37564 SL 1.37790 TP 1.37170
  • H4 Demand tak­en out and sin­gle print TPOs and strong ini­tia­tive activity
  • Sin­gle print not tak­en out and price trad­ing in low­er range of exten­sion plus price action pre­dom­i­nant­ly look­ing bear­ish. M30 con­sol­i­da­tion after a weak inside bar, I decid­ed to hold the trade into the noise overlap.
  • Sin­gle print TPO got tak­en out and my stop was hit at 1.37744

How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket context?

  • I did well to stick with the Mar­ket Pro­file ini­tial­ly but then failed to observe the 4 TPO struc­ture being made with­out mak­ing any low­er lows. 

How did I feel before, dur­ing, and after the trade?

  • I felt good before the trade observ­ing the mar­ket and let the trade come to me
  • Good dur­ing the trade
  • After­wards good as well

How well did I fol­low my process?

  • I did well here

How well did I man­age my phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al and cog­ni­tive states?

  • Great

What did I learn today?

  • I learned that after a 4 TPO struc­ture build-up and no low­er lows it is not like­ly we can see a continuation

What’s one thing I need to do more often?

  • Keep learn­ing mar­ket profile

What’s one thing I need to do less often?

  • Do too much too fast
