Buy trigger was the first delta divergence








Closed at the .5 SD on the RTH. Going to watch now. Could be in a downtrend day, but we got 4 TPOs at 92.80 which helped my decision.

Low volume tests are often the turning point, although I am in no rush to buy i again yet. That was true freighttraining.

Runner set, walking away


EDIT: OK I lied. I got up from my desk, and then saw ETH VWAP and closed. I am so wimpy about certain things. While price does cross VWAP all the time, it is my present boogie man.

It is flattening out though... But I am flat as well.

If that is a higher wave C, there is a lot of room to run from here. But below ETH Vwap I should be bearish, and ES is just begging to fall on it's face eventually, which if it does CL can barely stand up right now. Going to eat lunch and come back to see who won. If the C was correct shorts will be flying out the door, and it not, there is always tomorrow.

Took one more short shot at delta divergence on high volume. Very tight stops, and one got hit before it turned. Stops 6/8/10, PT between 1.5 to 2.0. Got hit one one about 15 ticks too early.




This was the old trendline, figured it was worth a try, but looking to buy again. I had a very strong morning and decided to press a little while still guaranteeing positive.



AND, I took that short because I was disappointed I did not trade the turn better. I just caught that. I was getting up to walk away and alloed myself to "play safe" again. That makes me insane.... To do all that work, define the turn, major turn at that, and be scared on one contract...

I will explore that instead of trade this afternoon. What is it that allows me to freight train mutiple contracts but not hold one?



Pay attention.
