Two winners to the firs target only and a loser for the session. Couldn’t quite stick in the trade for what looked like good upward construction. NASDAQ volume closed at 1.8 billion shares. The Fed announcement is tomorrow.

Triggered long at A at 1855.75, hit first target for 6 ticks, stopped second half under the entry:

Triggered long at A at 3673.75 and stopped for 7 ticks. Put it back in and it triggered and hit first target for 6 ticks, stopped second half at entry:
