9:30 Percent R Signal Trumps All

Trade #1 – So, I already know that if I get a percent r signal at 9:30, this is the highest probability I have in my arsenal right now.  I really should be trading 4 cts when I see it.  It has over an 80% success rate.  This morning though I became concerned.  Whe the TF was giving a very legitimate signal at 9:30 to short, the ES made an inside bar.  It was also red, so it couldn’t even muster the strength to close above it’s open.  It then went on to retest at 9:35.  Well, this is my second highest probability trade.  When I get a signal at 9:35, it is almost always wrong, so I should be fading.   But here in this example, I have my 2 highest probability signals going head to head with each other.  From now on, I should always default to the 9:30 signal.  It would not have gotten +5 but it would have reached break-even.

Trade #2 – This is another classic percent r signal.  This trade dragged on FOREVER.  It was really tough to watch and pay attention.  It did reach my break-even point, but I had to ride it out for 3 hrs to do so.  This is a prime example of needing to adjust targets on certain days.  Very choppy today.  In the future, look for ways to notify days where I pull the entire postion off early or at least half off early.  I definitely had concern for a double top, but just stuck to my mechanical target.

Trade #3 – So this trade was an aggressive trade.  This was a percent r trade taken from the NQ chart.  However, the NQ technically did not give the signal.  It almost retested, but did not give an official signal.  Here I shorted 1118.75 and covered at 1116.25 for +2.5 pts.  I will say I was very much influence by FT71 on this trade as he was extremely during bearish during this period.  He however, had much less risk as he shorted 1122.
