Yes I know...

Please help me petition Sierra Chart to add a similar option built-in to Sierra for sharing images on futures.io (formerly BMT). They have a 'upload chart' option, but it is still not as easy as what was developed for NinjaTrader. If they added a 'Upload chart w/bbcode' option, it would be better and they could return to clipboard the [img] tags enclosed with the image URL.

Do I add in higher, or be happy about my trade location...??? (and that is my thought, not wanting an outside answer). I am not used to managing a trade like this, but I see that @Private Banker and @greenr sometimes add as it moves in their favor.

I have held a position all day so far though, so either way I have accomplished something for myself.

If I add now, it is becauseI want more money, not because I know what I am doing. The correct add was at 92.15, which I missed, and then MAYBE at 92.25 where my dog blocked me. Ignoring the fact that I could have bought new dog for $400.00...





She acts like she did not hear me.

Holding and watching it go up and down makes me wonder is I should have done this or that. Same emotions as scalping but less excitement.

I did move my stop to 92.01...

If this comes back on me now, it is probably karma after what I said about Piper.

Cool dog! With today being rotational, you do not want to be adding to your position at higher prices. Just my opinion of course. Market is having a hard time with VWAP and yesterday's value. Keeps getting rejected. Maybe it breaks through and eats more into yesterday's profile but could just as well have a spike lower at some point today. Profile just looks really rotational though, we have excess at both ends of the profile now. Play the extremes and stay on your toes!
