Hello just creating a journal web facing to keep myself honest with my system .

I normally try and trade during the 7:00 am - 12:00 am CST. I occasionally if time permits look at 60, 240, daily charts for trade openings after that any smaller time frames I try and keep in the morning between the London NY overlap. Better setups and follow throughs happen during this time. Not so much on the 5,15,30 m charts after that for me.

My Portfolio includes
EURUSD
EURAUD
AUDCAD
USDJPY
USDCAD
GBPJPY
GBPUSD
AUDUSD
GBPAUD

I occasionally trade others if I notice a good setup that I can't resist.

USDJPY
Slightly aggressive entry also for a Gartley
Garly
RSI Divergence
Major Struct score of 6 so only taking a half position with small with tight tp and sl.

About a 1 to 1 trade. I would like to see more of a RR of 1.5 at least but that structure seems to be holding nicely and fits my criteria for a quick pip.
