Time to get back to a Plan/Structure, so here it is:

Trading Structure:
1) Use stop loss of 10-20 pips per trade
2) Don’t trade at beginning of Red News.
3) Stop trading for the day with a max loss of 30 pips.
4) Target an exit at 2:1 to 3:1 profit
5) Log my trades and update my accountability partner daily.
6) Entry to use: price action entry around a 1-2-3 in-line with the AO bias.

GJ is trending up. Look for resistance into support, then look for a possible 123.

Yes, good point Mr Hyde. I could look at the overall trend going on and use that to my advantage in terms of directional bias on my lower time frame. Thank you!

Do you still have access to V8Powers laptop?

A more serious question that has been on my mind.
Do his ex girlfriends girls still have access to the fund he set up for them when they turn 18 so they can escape their lineage if they so choose?
