A critical signal juncture came today some minutes after the opening, just as I was getting to my screen late for the day. Maybe that's my excuse for not wrapping my head around the short signal, and using poor partial entry model signals for trying to fade that early action. ....or maybe I would have done the same thing, even if I had gotten to work on time.... but in any case, is a good reminder not to get your computer booted up and charts populated after the day is already underway, and start jumping into trades. If you come in that late....just watch for awhile. So what if you miss the whole frame. It took me well into the midday frame just to dig myself out of that early hole. ...and that's no way to trade a day.

Giving up nearly all early profits in pursuit signals coming late in frame is not a good habit nor a good way to begin the New Year. Fortunately, a very oversold signal did come at the Gap Close that proved recuperative...to say the least. But the best trades were not the fades today, even the one at the TF HOD with also gave a clear signal. No, with the current climate one of such extreme volatility, a better New Years resolution would be to take the Inflection Break-Outs, and go with the volatility, instead of trying to nail it at the pivot and exhaustion levels. Two of those today, would have netted clean profits quite early, and been far less painful. ....if I could but only get my head around breakouts.... and wishing all the best in their trading, their lives, and for the country overall in the coming New Year ahead.

Giving up nearly all early profits in pursuit signals coming late in frame is not a good habit nor a good way to begin the New Year. Fortunately, a very oversold signal did come at the Gap Close that proved recuperative...to say the least. But the best trades were not the fades today, even the one at the TF HOD with also gave a clear signal. No, with the current climate one of such extreme volatility, a better New Years resolution would be to take the Inflection Break-Outs, and go with the volatility, instead of trying to nail it at the pivot and exhaustion levels. Two of those today, would have netted clean profits quite early, and been far less painful. ....if I could but only get my head around breakouts.... and wishing all the best in their trading, their lives, and for the country overall in the coming New Year ahead.
