So you want to be a trader and 'trade for a living'...

Marty Schwartz said it best in his book "Pit Bull".

“Feel free to use my tools, but don’t think that you can just pick them up and start making money. To make yourself into a skilled craftsman, you’ll have to find the tools that feel right to you, and use them over and over until you learn how they work, what they can do, and how to get the most out of them.”

To be successful, the process is akin to being an apprentice and gain from practice, one's skills in utilising the tools of one's trade.

Anyway, the 2 min chart of FkLI futures shows how the price action panned out.
