About BTC Daily Review

Al started publishing daily E-mini review with markings on his blog on his website[1] from around 20160531 (charts before that date on the website don't have markings, they are pretty much same as the ones published on with BBB)[2]. There are a few things can potentially be improved:

  1. Reasoning for an entry. Al marks good long/short entries on the EOD review, but the entries normally don't have enough explanation about the reasons behind the entry, except for the patterns or SR he added to the chart. Al says a trader "need two reasons to take a trade", it will be better if traders especially beginners can see all the reasons behind the entries.
  2. Important SR on the chart. Al's EOD review doesn't usually put important SR like LOY or HOY on the chart, but they are very important for traders to make decisions.
  3. HTF chart. Al's EOD review doesn't have HTF chart (for e.g. hourly or daily) on daily review, but they are also very important for traders to make decisions.
  4. The EOD review misses a "plain" 5 mins chart for clearer view of price action.
  5. The chart doesn't have bar number which makes it harder to discuss.

About BPAX E-mini Daily Review

Hence, the Daily Setups on BPAX here is trying to address above limitations starting from March 2023. In an most recent example 20230308, a few new features have been added upon Al's EOD review:

  1. Added a "plain" 5 mins chart with bar number and important SR, including HOY, LOY, etc.
  2. Added HTF chart, including monthly, weekly, daily, hourly and 15 mins, which is what Al use in trading room.
  3. Added a "BBB table" with one cell for each of the 80 bars where we can enter reasons for good entries. I have been experimenting quite a few methods to annotate a chart, however they pretty much all have a common problem: texts are not searchable. If texts are not searchable, overtime, the markups get lost and become less valuable. Following annotations can be done to the chart as of now:
    • All BPA abbreviations (for e.g. BOM, PW, HHMTR, etc) can be used to annotate any bar, and they can be quickly hyperlinked to its own description page. Hover-overing mouse on the hyperlink will display the description of the abbreviations, this will be extremely handy and helpful for beginners.
    • In addition to typing directly in the table, editors can also use the "Cite" feature to add comments to a bar if the limited space is a concern.
    • The table doesn't look as pretty as I wanted, but that is probably the best way to have multiple traders collaboratively work together on the same EOD chart review, build a well-explained version, and incorporating quality discussions into the review, to benefit every participants.
  4. All important patterns or setups of the day will be "tagged" to the page, for e.g. SPBLT, HLMTR, etc. This will make it much easier to see a list of, say SPBLT days.
  5. Al's original EOD chart will be at bottom of the table for reference.
  1. The website started around April 2014.
  2. Al Brooks started BBB on from 20090730 and stopped on 20230323.
