Trading Journal #64
08:34 am: “Futures slightly red to start the day giving some follow through to yesterday’s profit taking from highs as the market was a bit extended and overbought. Now we measure the size of fade/consolidation before triggering the next move.
08:35 am: “Morning focus on AAPL TSLA SPY IWM QQQ and Semi’s if they give some more follow through to yesterday’s profit taking from highs or not.
Morning trades: I started the day fading GOOGL AAPL and META for cash flow. Saw bull flow on MMM so scalped longs for cash flow. After 11am, scalped long IWM AMZN and BA Calls on bounce up for cash flow and done.

Loss review: I kept my trades tight and was able to cut fast, so happy with risk management.
Key Takeaways: After a huge 2-3 days up move, it’s normal to have a pause to consolidate gains, so during this period and to avoid frustration, you take trades for cash flow and do not hold the bag for too long.
Look Ahead: No one has a clue on what’s next, so staying open minded. So far, seeing a normal and healthy pullback/pause to consolidate last week’s gains.
