I wanted it all this morning. My intention was to get short above the +2 SD Level and hang on! When 2 am came around I had sell orders sitting above the +2 SD Level (10, 12 14 and 16), price traded on even but never reached up for my orders. Then the market fell nicely, without me. I got a sell signal and took it, then I started thinking,,,,, I bet the 80 level will hold and my London Brethren will push the market up and get short on even. So after the first mistake, I made the second. I took profits on the little short and traded against all my indicators and went long anticipating a pop to even, wrong. Thankfully it didn't take long for price to come back to test 80 (now I consider 80 resistance under the VWAP) giving me the opportunity to get unraveled from the longs and get turned around short. Then rigamortis set in. I bailed out of the trade on the push down when the U.S. volume started coming in, I didn't want to sit through another pull back during the U.S. session. This was a four lot, with a four lot when things go bad, they go bad in a hurry.
