Trading Day Summary 20210922

Sum­ma­ry: Exe­cute your plan and let risk para­me­ters take over

A small sum­ma­ry of how I did dur­ing the ses­sion. Things I did well. Things I need to keep work­ing on. Trade Reviews are part of my post-mortem. 

My week­ly goals: 

  • Trad­ing rules
    • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
    • No ear­ly exits, either hit SL or 2R target

Good Pre-mar­ket routines

Good Ses­sion PECS

Good Trade selection

Good Trade siz­ing or SL placement

Good Trade Exe­cu­tion & Mgmt.

Good Risk Adjust­ed Returns

Yes Clar­i­ty — in tune with price

Mup­pet Meter (1 being best — 5 being worst): 1



  • Price extend­ed below in C hit­ting H4 demand before form­ing an inside bar to a slight RBR test­ing IB low before con­tin­u­ing down. 
  • A late-sus­tained auc­tion entry could’ve been played here but I don’t like to trade right into H4 demand as well asn the large LTF demand at VAH not pro­vid­ing with good 2R prof­it tar­get. ALthough with trend being down the expec­ta­tion is that both of these will get tak­en out at some point. 


  • IB tra­versed down 0.58xASR. C formed a Bull­ish Inside Bar. Wait­ed for a slight pull­back to new­ly formed M15 Bull Engulf to go long so that my stan­dard size SL could be placed below IB
  • Long 15412.11, SL 15374.38, TP 15487.56 (2R)
  • Price has failed to extend IB
  • Price hit the 2R target

Actu­al Development

Expec­ta­tion of a M30 Bull­ish Inside Bar is to form a Three Inside Up which it did although fail­ing to extend above IB. The remain­der of the ses­sion trad­ed with­in IBR and there was no exten­sion dur­ing the ‘nor­mal’ trad­ing win­dow but price con­sol­i­dat­ed at the top half of the IBR. Price final­ly extend­ed dur­ing L TPO and hit tar­get dur­ing M TPO in line with a pos­si­ble H4 RBR. 

Good points

  • Sum­ma­riz­ing the poten­tial nar­ra­tive going against the Down­trend 2/3
  • Sum­ma­riz­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty for the devel­op­ment of a H4 base before a poten­tial con­tin­u­a­tion up as price had not extend­ed with­in the first 2 hours (ie lack of momen­tum behind the move)
  • Slight pull­back entry to new­ly formed M15 Bull Engulf to get a bet­ter entry as well as SL placement
  • Going against H1 price action and let­ting M15/M30 guide the narrative

Bad Points

  • Price did­n’t actu­al­ly reach VAH but instead used yes­ter­day’s ses­sion high as a turn­ing point. I will mon­i­tor this under my for­ward-test­ing category. 

Next Day Review

  • Time-based stop
    • 0.6R
