I have been visiting these forums on and off for a while and decided to start my own journal now. My interest in particular is trend following the ES by simply using support and resistance levels in the one hour chart. I will trade breakouts to enter long and breakdowns to enter short. Perhaps more rules will emerge as this journal evolves. Meanwhile I will try to be as unbiased as possibly attainable since a common rule is to "trade what you see, not what you think". Although I read a lot about trend following, my impression is that this topic is very vague and hard to follow for a beginner. Hence I will give it a go. I spent quite some time studying the printouts of historical price action of expired contracts, and discovered a striking repetitive pattern of (1) reversal/ignition (2) trend (3) range (4) continuation/reversal. Charts will be attached as reference to illustrate my thoughts.
