Summary — London
  • DAX
    • 1st DTTZ
      • IB tra­versed high­er 1.31xASR. This could be a devel­op­ing H4 Three Out­side Up. With an exten­sion above IB but wide IBR there could be a test of new­ly formed M30 C‑dem that could be a pull­back entry into the devel­op­ing H4 PA.
      • C extend­ed above but then closed with­in IB as a spin­ning top. 
    • 2nd DTTZ

  • GOLD
    • 1st DTTZ
      • IB tra­versed 0.35xASR. B closed as a slight Bull Engulf, pos­si­bly a con­sol­i­da­tion. Price extend­ed above IB in C closed above IB in a sus­tained auc­tion below H4 c‑sup. 
      • D made HH and closed above C’s range. Look­ing like a low/medium ini­tia­tive sus­tained auc­tion up.
    • 2nd DTTZ
      • F made a HH but then closed down, I was con­sid­er­ing an entry off M15 Bear Engulf but after a HH was made I let the trade go. 


Summary — New York

  • GOLD
    • 1st DTTZ
      • B closed as a Bull Engulf above VAH but no exten­sion yet. C closed as a Consolidation. 
      • Neu­tral Day formed

  • WTI Crude 
    • 1st DTTZ
      • A closed with­in val­ue accept­ing val­ue rotat­ing through. IB tra­versed 0.7xASR. 
      • M15 Bear Engulf although not much of a TPO struc­ture yet. Wait­ing for anoth­er TPO to see what happens.
      • Next TPO closed some­what bull­ish with M15 Bull Engulf and continuation. 


DAX — London
  • Which hypo played out and how did I hypoth­e­size it play­ing out? How did it actu­al­ly play out? What did the pro­file and price action show?
  • Hypo 1
    • Mean Rever­sion, Sus­tained Auc­tion up
    • 100% cor­rect

What hap­pened around the 1st DTTZ? Which Hypo played out (if any)?

IB extend­ed above IB, after tra­vers­ing 1.31xASR, then pro­ceed­ed in a sus­tained auc­tion up. 

What hap­pened around the 2nd DTTZ? Which Hypo played out (if any)?

Sus­tained auc­tion continued. 

What was the play of the day?

Mean Rever­sion, Sus­tained Auction

Was I right on the out­come? Which Hypo played out and why was it not Hypo 1 (if any)?

Yes, I was

Was there an oppor­tu­ni­ty and did I take it?

There but I did not take it. I decid­ed that based on the huge IBR it was not wise to go in off an exten­sion. With a stan­dard size SL this would have got­ten stopped out as well. A bet­ter Entry would have been off D clos­ing above. This, com­bined with a pre­vi­ous big down can­dle and the expectan­cy for it to get retraced, as well as equi­ties upward bias, trend is up 3/3, the sen­ti­ment was for more upwards pressure. 

What could I have done better?

I did not know about these con­di­tions and thought I did well to stay out. 

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

No trade taken. 


GOLD — London
  • Which hypo played out and how did I hypoth­e­size it play­ing out? How did it actu­al­ly play out? What did the pro­file and price action show?
  • No hypo played out. There was a sus­tained auc­tion up. 

What hap­pened around the 1st DTTZ? Which Hypo played out (if any)?

C TPO extend­ed above IB and con­tin­ued higher

What hap­pened around the 2nd DTTZ? Which Hypo played out (if any)?

Then start­ed con­sol­i­dat­ing but not break­ing the TPO struc­ture even though M30 closed down it also made a HH in F which made me recon­sid­er a short. 

What was the play of the day?

Sus­tained Auc­tion Up. 

Was I right on the out­come? Which Hypo played out and why was it not Hypo 1 (if any)?

No, I was not. There was a sus­tained auc­tion up. I did not want to include this as the trend was down 2/3. Plus not much room to move to VAL as well as open sen­ti­ment was with­in range.

Was there an oppor­tu­ni­ty and did I take it?

Not accord­ing to my cur­rent trad­ing rules. 

What could I have done better?

I think I did well to stay out based on the open sen­ti­ment and trend being down.

No trade taken.
