- 27 (from + 21) I'm done. For the past 20 minutes, I've been in revenge mode... Must work on discipline. I think there is a range and I'm out of time.

that was me yesterday, started with a stupid mistake, double click on entry (2 contracts) thinking I had set a stop, down 20T times 2 before caught it.
mental distractions and the perils of manual entry on DOM. got stopped on another -12T so now down -52, basically spent the morning back and forth fighting my way back to minus -12T. I think I did something like this last month not paying attention to my entry and it cost me.
took one trade this morning for plus 4 calling it a day.
good luck
regards

+ 24 and I have to stop because I'm mildly angry as I missed the break down of the line indicated. Just in case anyone's interested in my rational, a thrust was presented which broke the trend-line, shortly followed by an open/close below the line. Would have only got 20 but still, would have been a recovery from yesterday's sack of shite. Onwards...

take the money and run. I'm seeing this whole 7725-60 zone as one of indecision by our algo opponents. lots of stop hunts, spikes on any whiff of news. I will
take my pittance where I can at the moment. it is a bit overly cautious but better than giving it away. a couple more weeks of these conditions and we
should be back to normal insanity. maybe. plus 5 this morning on one trade, missed another entry.
good luck

Agree, there is no greater pain than giving it all back. You can call it a pittance, but all of the time you are building confidence and noticing things you wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't been in the market. Capital protection while you are building experience is the only game in town.

Good luck man.

thought I would check back in over the NY lunch hour (the J holer's lunch is 2 hrs behind). almost took 2 trades but missed entry, hard to layoff.
but I closed it and decided to watch price action for a bit. still too erratic even over lunch.
good luck

+23, 1 trade. I would like high 20's, but I played that game earlier in the week. Going into the weekend on a positive. Have a good one y'all.

You may still find some relevant decisions made around volume profile ledges on the current day's developing profile or on the previous day's profile like Harold mentions here:

+ 25, but too many trades really, but if they average out I guess it is just the cost of doing business. Still, better than losses!

missed most of friday's carnage, came back about an hour left to see the mess. late this morning, more external activities kept me away, watched
for about 30min before I have to run again. looks like more of the same. if you can swing trade and don't mind the draw down spikes, this is
the market for you. but in keeping in the spirit of the thread intent, just too many stop out potentials due to market conditions for my taste. it
will settle a little and I'll resume. capitol preservation rule one.
good luck

took another look in about 2hrs before the close. price seemed to settle within 40-50t either side of the open with the occasional 25t thrust bar.
attempted one entry, no fill, price action looked like buyers moving in.
good luck,

not a lot of time to watch/trade, have to jamb for early appts. looked at one possible entry but never came back to my limit. probably
just as well looking at the volatility. prehaps another session on either side of the open? or at least until the worm turns
good luck

+24, Just thought I'd round it up to 15 trades, which is frankly ridiculous. Missed a really nice break earlier on which would have got me high 20's with half this many trades.
