Two losses for the first time in a while. Both would have worked if you put them back in, but I wasn’t around over lunch to re-enter the first one, and the second one re-triggered in the last 15 minutes of the day. The markets were pretty choppy early and then sold off in the afternoon. See the ES and NQ sections below. NASDAQ volume closed at 1.8 billion shares.

Net ticks: -14 ticks.

Triggered short at A at 1923.75 and stopped. Did not re-enter, though it worked later:


Just a reminder that we use half points for ticks on the NQ and not the quarter point measurement that the exchanges switched to in recent years. This allows us to use 6 ticks as a key target as we do on the other contracts. It also keeps the value of a tick at $10, closer to the value of a tick on the other contracts.

Triggered short at A at 3953.50 and stopped. Did not re-enter:
