MNQ Journal

I changed focus from FX to Indices Futures several years ago. I'll journal MNQ day trading when time allows. The approach might resonate with some attempting the proliferation of 'Combines' out there. Not trading today but
here's a snapshot of the 'decision support' i use on the Tradovate Platform. Far right: TPO just for key levels. Middle: 4hr. Left: 1min (SMA 20 channel, VWAP, Volume & Cummulative Delta), trend lines are key, for me.

premarket has been ok recently. Switched to tick charts for the time being, 4000 for trend, 800 for entries from channel breaks. The 138.2 extension for targets is useful.

..decided to watch NQ rather than MNQ today. Waiting to see if the structure holds to buy.

..another pre-market setup long - using a 2000 tick chart today..jumped the gun on the entry, didn't wait for the candle to close and when it did, it didn't look a great entry signal :( ..thankfully buyers came in and there's been enough wiggle room to take the risk off ahead of the open.

Edit: ..made a mess of a couple but ok in the end will leave it there for today.

..trying something different today (using MES). Post FOMC price action broke last week's high so i figured there may be follow through today...so i scanned different timeframes to read the overnight pa and settled on the 30min, looking for an ABC retracement to then drop down to the 5min and buy with reasonable risk. GDP helped the setup with the spike down to print the 'C' ..looks a bit tenuous but the plan is working. Using a 138.2 fib ext from the end of the session yesterday, as a target..good luck today. Edit: ..ended up b/e on this in the end.
