I'm really enjoying this method of trading. I say enjoying because it really has taken a load of stress off from trading for me. With a lot of subjectivity removed and just following the line of references, I can easily go in and out without giving too much thought too it. I had one trade in /ES today which is an A-UP trade. It didn't reach my PT and was stopped out. I had moved my stop up to reduce risk and it looks like it was a good move. /ES took -2.5 from me today.
/CL gave me another nice day today, but not before a loss. I went on A-UP trade @ 104.35 which eventually got stopped out at 103.96 for a loss of -39. Soon after, crude made a C-DOWN along with break of pivot ranges. This lets me know that the odds are strongly on my favor. Additionally, the /DX chart gave me a nice confirmation as well of an impending sell-off in crude. I mustered up my courage and went short two contracts risking 4.5% on this trade. Because I also have a position in /ES, this is one of the few times I trade with my entire account in play. Short entry was at 103.83 and first one out at 103.26 and second one trail stopped out at 103.04. Later on the day, I had another trade (not ACD but a signal that I trust a lot) where I scalped an additional 11 ticks for a total of +90 ticks on crude today.
