This Forex spread had a very good set up as well with +2 Zscore ( SD from mean) and strong co-integration. I did not take this one since in Forex major political events can and will break long standing relationships. Even with all the math and statistics, riots in the streets will cause losses. I got stuck in a stuck in a similar trade in the past trading a Turkish Lira spread pair.

BTW, these spread trades do not have to be taken immediately and you should have plenty of time to enter ( of course at your own risk). They are taken off daily/1H/30M/15M charts.

Please give don't forget the competition if you like the Journal:

Only One spread trade today, which was good for +$44 with a draw of about $100 or so.
I stayed busy with the Forex Spread trades set ups and did not get to day trade.

Two trades today, in addition to the micro Forex spread trades. First was in the morning and it was the normal YM-NQ spread trade. It was at $50+ when I decided to close, but ended up with +$45 actual profits. The spread had only $20 of draw at worst.

Second was a combination of news ( China face to face meeting) and PA/VSA. The breaking news got me very quickly into the trade ( blue line) and the exit was based on PA/support from few days back. If I had traded the news on its own, I would been out with half the profits. Technical set up kept me in for the ( original) 3008.5 target from the hourly charts. I had to exit below that since it was EOD. Also, notice how the volume was low on all the down bars, and high(er) on the up bars.




MES trade made $267 and spread +$45 for a total of $312. Good day, low stress and minimal draw.

The SD from mean is -3 right now. The appropriate thing to do, according to the trader that is helping me with this set up, is to add to this trade. This is all new, and even though its very small size, I will not. I will continue to hold for BE or some profit.
