Often NQ leads ES, but not always. In two trades I saw NQ making a run for its lows and I exited. In the past this has saved me points. Today it cost me a bit. But that’s OK, I prefer to buy when ES & NQ are strong. Today NQ was weak.
I did make some progress being more patient. I had +3 on the first trade before I exited +1.5. So I’m pleased with that. I’m on track to meet my goal of 2 pts/day per contract, as long as I don’t do anything stupid tomorrow. Tomorrow is options expiration so I’ll be a little more selective and if I get a winning trade I may stop early.
