Ah..it was a trending day! Great.
Good thing: Not a single dummy setup in 30-min chart across E-mini S&P, E-mini Nasdaq, mini-size Dow, and even E-mini Ruselle 2000! before 12pm NY time. So, I was being disciplined, no setup, no trade. Bad thing: I didn’t make any money.
Worst thing: I didn’t make any money during trending day.
Just as part of my observation, I noticed chances appeared in 15-min charts for the past 2 days. I was not trying to monkey around timeframes, it was the strong day with strong opening volume analysis led me to think about looking at 15-min chart for faster and safer entry.
For consideration, if opening volume analysis shows a volatile or strong day ahead, I am keen to look at shorter time frame (15-min chart). Well, it is just a consideration.
Bottom line, I need to have a couple of different trading strategies in addition to dummy trading. I can’t make a living with just one strategy.
Anyway, let’s fight another day.
