  1. Week 12-09 to 12-13-19 What I did Bad this Week: I traded more than 3 times before 1100 twice this week Took a pre 1min on one trade Jumped the gun on one trade Made a Hotbutton mistake 3 time this week What I did Good this Week: Respected all my Rules Feeling good about my pre 5min decisions Doing a better job of getting in on trades when I see them setup Saved money by reading the L2 and T&S and getting out before my stop and before a big dump Changes to be made this upcoming Week: None Rules to stick by this upcoming Week: After I call it a day by either MAX Loss, Profit Target or what I am comfortable with, only use the rest of the day for Chat, Journal, Playbook ect. In-Trade and Daily Stops Only A or better setups Do Not chase or revenge trade Challenges for myself this upcoming Week: No Voice Chat before 1000 Max of 3 trades or 2 loosing trades in a row before 1100 Take a planned break at 1100 for other Bus. Notes: One of the days I slept in and was rushed in the Pre-Market causing me to feel a bit rushed at open On another Day I skipped my workout and meditation and I never felt quite right during the trading day Goals and Rewards: +20R at end of the month to consider trading with more size +12.6R for the week
  2. So for the last month patterns by themselves do not seem to work on AMD.... Even with LVL2 it is tricky...... Yes the smaller T&S window is 2K and above..... I use this to see if there is a large seller/buyer at the same price for a period of time and if it coincides with the LVL2..... I use CMEG...... try going into LVL2 Configure.... I went up on my Tiers....
  3. 12-13-19 AIS 0843, 6hrs, 6/10, PAT: Spread..... A or better..... Notes: Do not hesitate but also do not jump the gun.... AQST PB#6.... first attempt so I kept my risk very low..... on the third min. it broke above VWAP an as soon as it came back through I had an order sitting at 5.47 as this was on SSR... L2 also started showing some nice BIDs in a ladder...... My stop was tight above VWAP and target was low of day... +1.3R CIEN PB#3.... Trending the 9ema on the 1 and 2min and making a nice ABCD on both, touching the 9ema on the 1min..... in as soon as it made a new 2min high..... stop was below C, the previous two candles on the 2min and ultimate target was a daily level of 44.41,....as soon as it got to the L2 prices at .87 the price action changed..... it chopped for a couple min. and BIDs started showing up giving me a Reason2Exit.... -.6R MU Took two stabs at MU Long and one Reversal...... The first and second I took with a trend above the 9ema and L2 was giving some light signals.... one of the things I have been noticing is that MU will often have some nice L2 signals and when the action approaches them they are pulled.... both were either partialed or stopped early with this information..... the Short was taken on the same L2 but BIDs this time... I was off looking at other tickers when it was at the 51.20 area and I missed some good partials..... the last red green was an all out.... I accidentally hit sell position instead of cover..... +1.6R AMD These two AMD trades were taken as possible trend trades... the first one I was stopped out of the ABCD pattern... the second one I took 1/2 of the first and I added in once I seen that the T&S didnt want to let it go past .45 and the L2 started to pick up.... Took partials and all out at BE..... -.3R Cons: Over traded..... Hit a buy key on mistake Pros: Saved money on following the L2 and T&S getting out early on the changes..... Playbook Trade: AQST Notes: Slept in today and was a bit rushed in the premarket.... Rs: + 2R
  4. I am looking for blocks of 80 or more and in a ladder to a much bigger move....... I felt like it was gonna blow through .80 with the T&S printing .79 on the ASKs and once it breaks .80 there was a ladder to 40.00..... and on the BID side there are a few orders over 100 at .70 but no type of ladder to get to them..... As it approaches 40.00 the ASKs keep stacking below it and the BIDs are disappearing.... I was feeling like I need a partial here because the next large ASK was at .05 so it could slow up..... Once it got past 40.00 it pulled back as expected, made a nice ABCD and gave me a signal to increase size...... I took another Partail just above 40.00 with a little slow down of action but it soon came back..... Once it got past .05 the ASKs stacked back up in 5 cent or less ladder all the way to .35 and beyond..... I got all out once the ASKs were exhausted..... Hope this helps explain my thoughts through the trade.....
  5. The trade was just under 25min and over 300 MB ..... not sure I can send it to you..... but Ill try to upload it ..... It is silent but I was using my mouse to show what I was looking at..... The first entry was a little late and I did not have an ABCD pattern like I did on the second entry..... I should not have let it scare me out and the second entry should have been an add on.... but Ill keep learning..... If I can not get it to upload Ill go back and take some screen shots....
  6. 12-12-19 AIS 0830, 4.5 hrs, 6/10 PAT: Wait 1 min..... Spread..... Notes: Manage trades reading the price action.... NUGT PB#1.1...... 2min ORB.... using LVL2 ASKs as the trade..... I did not record this one but I did the AMD...... Gold was up today putting it in play...... I took this scalp on only LVL2 and T&S price action and it was also bullish on the 2min ORB..... entry at 30.50, Stop loss below prev. candle 30.45 and target was 30.68..... took partials at LVL2 ASKs hit.... and all out when BIDs were coming in and the T&S tapered off +.66R AMD LVL2 Momentum Trade...... I did record this (saved as 12-12-19 AMD LVL2 Momentum)...... The first stab I probably should have waited for that small pull back but I did get right back in.... I also only took 100 shares on this one.... the second attempt was with more confidence and confirmation so I took 200....... My risk was very tight as I was trading off the LVL2 and T&S...... and my targets were staggered with the LVL2 action but my main Target was 40.20...... Partials were taken at all the different LVL2 large ASKs being hit.... I added on with a large ASK at 40.00...... and all out when LVL2 was exhausted and T&S was petering out.... +4R Cons: could have waited for the pull back on AMD... Pros: Took the trades as soon as they presented itself... Playbook Trade: AMD Momentum.... Notes: I will try to continue these momentum trades as this is where I did do well in the past in SIM.... Rs: +4.6R
  7. 12-11-19 AIS 0850, 4 hrs, 7/10 (slept in about 1/2 hour..... Late long night at work..... Im a little anxious..... PAT: Over-trading.... Notes: Allowing for pre 5min trading with smaller size..... Did not leave time for exercise or meditation.... Careful... AEO PB#2...... A setup.... Took this short on the gap down.... it broke up past VWAP then back down below VWAP where I entered.... unfortunately it did go back up stopping me out..... stop below VWAP and target at 14.31 -1R GME 2 trades A setup on both first PB#2...... took it long on the higher green entry and stopped out below VWAP with a target of PM level of 5.68 -2R second PB#2...... came back through VWAP again and this time there were more ASKs stacking.... with a better R/R and same stop and target..... +5R Cons: Jumping in on the pre 1min candle was probably not a good idea.... Pros: Felt good about the pre 5min VWAP momentum trades Playbook Trade: GME Notes: Will entertain a later day setup if it presents itself.... If it is not very clear I will be done..... Rs: +2R
  8. THX I almost ditched it.... had two losers in a row but when I went back to look in SIM I was right at 60% including the last two losers and the winners were big.....

Week 12-02 to 12-06-19 What I did Bad this week: Took trades after I was up to goal Jumped the gun on 3 trades for the week Took too many partials on 1 trade Did not Flip position when everything was telling me to on 1 trade Over traded on 1 day What I did Good this week: Did not hesitate on all but one setup for the week Realizing that when I am searching for too long that I start to fabricate trades to take Got out early on 2 trades on price action changes and both would have stopped me out for a larger loss Changes to be made the upcoming week: None Rules to stick by this upcoming week: After I call it a day by either MAX Loss, Profit Target or what I am comfortable with, only use the rest of the day for Chat, Journal, Playbook ect.

On Scanners.... RVOL at time of trade 60.0.... Dividend announcement.... PB#2...... A setup.... 1/2 size ..... After review this was a bad setup, maybe a B at best.... did not have an ABCD and the Wick on prev candle was too large.... I stopped out when the as price action was changing on me very early.....

I stopped early with price action change.... .5R CLVS Reason2Trade.... previous in play .... RVOL at time of trade 4.0 PB#3...... A setup.... 1/2 size..... My entry had a .04 slip and my stop slipped .13 which destroyed my 1/2 size....... Trending the 9ema on the 2min and no new low on 5 or 15min..... no ABCD...... -1R Cons: In on BIG and AUPH without confirmation, Pulling the trigger a little too early... Pros: Got out on BIG and AUPH early with price action.... Fav. Trade: CLVS Notes: CLVS was the only trade I am happy with and I may end the week here.... Rs: -2R

A setup..... 1/2 size..... 5min ORB with a VWAP play..... with decent ASKs on LVL2...... entry at 7.03 (slipped was supposed to be 7.00), my stop was the bottom of the 2min candle and below VWAP 6.95, target was 7.15 HOD... stopped out again with slip at 6.90.. -.75R ACAD Reason2Trade..... On Scanners..... + phase iii dementia related drug..... RVOL at time of trade was 1.3 1st trade PB#2....

LVL2 did not have much going on....... entry 52.70, stop was below the 9 and 20ema and below C on the 1min 51.96, target was just below HOPM 54.49..... took profit at 1R top of white candle but again with slip got abot .6R and stopped at BE..... +.6R 2nd trade PB#3..... A setup..... full size (on accident).... trending the 9 an 20ema on the 2 and 5min.... a pull back and confirmation on entry.... when I tried to stop out I hit Sell Pos. doubling my size and the candle was moving fast so by the time I exited I lost double...... -2R...... Reentered 1/2 size...... breaking the 20ema on the 2min, took partials and all out at BE....

I wanted to flip my pos. but chickened out.... -.5R 2nd trade PB#2.... A setup..... 1/2 size..... 105 was a serious level of support and if it gets past this I believe it will get to HOD of 107.20... the LVL2 was a little biased on that move at the time.... the prints on the T&S were soaring and at break of VWAP I took an entry at 104.93 with a stop just below VWAP and my target of 106.99.... I took partials at 2x , 3x , 4x and in between... along with partials all the way up and am now holding onto 6 shares for BE or just below HOD of 108.98 as my risk in this chop is 5.50 and a target of 24.00.... reevaluating with a new downtrend on the 5 15 and 30min charts Im all out at a new pullback on the 2min to the 9ema... +2R Cons: Should have went with my instinct and took a Flip on the first one.....

Trade: EXPE 2nd Notes: I am done for the day as this has me at a comfortable profit and at my daily target, I do not want to give any back Rs: +1.5
