    profit zero. flattened position as AUD tends to sleep.

    profit zero. seems like US $ not strengthening.

    no. because I didn't subscribe to ICE data.
    also I ran out of monitors and table space. hope to fix all these problems soon.

    4 Oct Asian premarket analysis

    Nikkei started to have a little bit of life. but most likely it will go back to coma stage.
    Mysteriously yesterday China Xinhua A50 went up significantly although this wk is China holiday.

    most trading instruments day range has decreased over the past 2 - 3 days.

    longed gbpusd 13290, 141pm.

    signal missed : Long India CNX Nifty at 1205pm. Reversal up signal.
    This signal is not that obvious. Need to improve signal detection.

    4 oct US session

    Longed natural gas 2946, 850pm
    profit : 30 ticks. quite straight forward trade.

    crude oil news at 1030pm. will see if there is any crude oil signal.

    perhaps will look at cattle and hog futures.
    farmers and traders have been very busy with cattle and hog lately.
    They are checking slaugher house, checking on packers, checking inventory, checking on farm etc etc.

    ES and NQ day range getting smaller. It might get even smaller unless there is some excitement or some major events coming up or some VVIP say something,
