TRADING PLANS 




* The market direction refers to when the trade was entered. Up is all three SMA trending Up, down is all three are trending Down, Mix is mixed or choppy market to then refer to 200SMA for preferred market direction)

* You don't have to trade everyday. If the conditions don't feel right or if you're unsure of the current days trading environment then PASS on the trade. Missed money is better than lost money.  Day trading and the stock market is not a "war" that you must win at all cost. Trading should be fun, wait for only the good setups. Follow your rules, stick to your stops, and know that everyday the market presents a new chess board.
