I try and stop trading at 11:30est as the london close can do things that are not anticipated. then try and catch a few more trades after the close if time allows.
18-I heard my audio alert for yellow go off but waited to enter off the weekly pivot at 92 +3
19-should have held the last trade as it as it went you know where...right back to the daily pivot at 14 where i shorted again +3.

Everyone have a wonderful stress free weekend!!!


13-again took the buy off 08 and exited at 14 should, i did not short because i had NO YELLOW and i felt this was the third time it attempted to break through the pivot at 15
14-i shorted at 21 looking for a push back to 15 to buy but it broke higher -5
15-shorted on the pause in price the zig zag +3
16-spiked higher shorted off the spike +4
17-bought off the spine in the direction of the move, it broke against me -4


8-i have the daily pivot at 15, price flew up fast was getting yellow so i knew it was going to reverse some, i waited and shorted fast at 15, exited on the spine of the rainbow. +7
9-came down some more then price got above the tma i took the buy, this went against me but i was with the uptrend so i held it and i exited at 08 +3
10-i should have bought earlier on the tma cross but i got in at the same spot as the previous trade 05, again exited 08 +3
11-same trade again in 05 this time i felt that the price had attempted to get back to test the 15 area again or maybe higher so i held this until i got yellow and that was at 14 so I exited +9
12-and shorted again back to 08 +5


3-i have weekly pivot at 92, yellow, so i took a quick short, it moved quick only got +1
4-shorted again at 95 thinking it would push back down to test 92, went up to 00 and then flew down to 89 where i exited +6
5-and bought in the direction of the move up exited 00 at the previous high +10
6-came down again to the pivot and i bought at 91 again exited at the 00 +9

The 5min Candle Reverse Setup

i have posted this before, i look for the big doji or indicive candle marked by the arrow. Then i see if the candle before the doji a is bear candle and that the candle after is a bull candle, that gives me a good idea the market is now going to be bull for some pips. It happened twice in todays session. Price pushed down but could not sustain the move down creating the doji and reversing the market back up. Hope this helps in recognizing candle patterns that happen a few times a week in NY. Just another tool for your box...

18-price stalled had yellow +3


8-price dropped down waited for a pullback to short it +18
9-same trade, thought it would drop more and missed the exit, it went against me 8 pips but i felt it was going to make a push down, finally it came +7
