The entry was based on the 15min chart interval. However, the exit was based on the 3min chart interval because more often than not when there's a huge wide range body candlestick that forms after a some consolidation...there's a counter-thrust.

Thus, I wanted good covers without giving back too many points had I used the 15min chart for the exit strategy.

What about that entry signal? A bearish divergence signal via price action only (no indicators) and a bearish engulfing Japanese Candlestick pattern.

The initial stop/loss protection was placed at one tick above the high of the engulfing candlestick and was never in jeopardy of being hit after entry.

As for the exits themselves...all via intraday Japanese Candlestick support and resistance levels. No math calculations and candlestick s/r levels are more reliable than pivot points or any indicator.

Simply, supply and demand.

The entry was based on the 3min all session chart interval with a peak at the 15min regular session chart.

Prior to the trade signal...via the 3min chart...there was a long legged doji in bearish position with volume spike.

It was that long legged doji that prompt me to search for any divergence signals and I found one.

However, the difficulty with this trade was the exit strategy. I got profit target one and two but couldn't get pt3. In fact, after my remainders got pick pocketed prior to pt3...

ES turned southwards and I failed to see a re-entry signal around 1097.50 price area...missing an opportunity to ride it all the way down to the 1090.75 price area.

Yet, I was glad to see some of the DAX traders riding that southward trend.

The entry was based on both the 3min and 1min chart intervals. The 1min chart interval revealed a low probability price action only bullish divergence signal...

Whereas, the 3min chart revealed the doji in a Harami like position.

Those combined trade signals merited a position and the risk was low...one tick below the low of that wide range body dark candlestick on the 3min chart.

I exited the 1st contract at the designated profit target 1. However, my 2nd contract was exited via poor trade management...prior to reaching profit target 2 of 1120.50

The 3rd contract was via the trading plan.

  Remember this...there are successful traders in #FuturesTrades consistently making good profits each week in either ES, NQ, YM, SPY, QQQ, DIA and Eurex DAX.

Many of these traders are either making a living in the markets via trading full time and others are just supplementing their incomes via trading part time.

There are others in the room as beginners or struggling just trying to grab a few trading tips from the veterans to help them turn the corner to profitability.

Last of all, there are a few in the realtime trade posting room that have exhausted their self-taught methodology without any success and are using the room to monitor NihabaAshi and other users of the fee-based strategies and free resources by TheStrategyLab.com to determine if such is what they need to get on the road to profits.

Sincerely,

M.A. Perry and Associates
