Today was a day that, in hindsight, was more clear than it was real time. I got 2.5 pts total, but left a lot on the table due to exiting early. I achieved my goal this week of 2 pts/day, exceeded it actually, so that is good news. A few more weeks of this and I will be ready to increase size.
The signals worked reasonably well today. There were only 2 signal failures in RTH and both were a sign of strength (when short failed) and weakness (when long failed). Trade location & context is the most important. For example one long failed was on the second test of the zone, those are always less reliable. A short failed signal was right at news. And even when a signal fails, there is often time to take a quick scale and/or scratch. On the short signal that failed at the initial resistance zone, I scratched when it came back to the VPOC and couldn’t hold below it.
Have a great holiday weekend! Remember that Europeans celebrate Easter on Monday instead of Good Friday, so Monday’s Globex should be very calm.
