I traded this well today. So, I am posting the review a little different. I am already worn out from reviewing the charts and executions. I wanted to post my notes up top on these.
Statistically speaking this was one of my best days. I am overtrading. There is no doubt. I am just not sure how much. It is hard to argue the consistency that I am building on since my platform has gone commission free and I can trade small and often.
The best part is I can do so much better!!
• I had a great bead on the tape and kept it in good context with the chart today
• I picked up on the downtrend early and traded that way until my break
• I developed some very specific things to work to help me with putting out more risk at the right times
• Most entries need to have a stop at the bottom of the entry candle. Anticipation trades need the tight risk of the tape
• I Let the stock tell me what to do today.
• I called quite a few break up points today
• Lowe’s reported Wednesday quarterly earnings that beat analysts’ expectations and raised its forecast for the year. However, revenue during the quarter fell short of expectations.

Reading the Tape
I can say that the tape and the spread were very kind to me today. I cannot exactly explain it but when this was about to move the spread would tighten in the opposite direction of the trade. This would let me put on a trade and be risk free as soon as the spread widen again. You could see on the T&S who has currently in control at the time of entry almost every time.
