ES rallied 40 point off the lows of the day. I think it will retest those lows in the next couple of days.

I use a 3 tick stop. I hold my winners until end of day. I keep it to one trade a day.

If you're going to be recording daily volume each day, personally I would look at the Volume & Open Interest chart on the CME website. Just a thought.

You do not win as a trader, you just get to play again the next day. If that game doesn’t appeal to you then you should not trade. Gary Norden
