Caught a 4:1 after almost stopping for the day. I was short, scaled out, stop to BE, target a few ticks north of YVAL, came back and was stopped out.
Then tried for an inverted H&S, closed negative but was still up for the day from the prior scaleouts.
Two times wrong, 3 is my max. Thought about just coming back to it tomorrow. Then saw price turn it's eyes on the VWAP prior pivot. Finally caught a real target for the day. But, as happens often, it ran another 50+ ticks without me... It is not like I won't get another shot at it, probably as soon as tomorrow.
Trading profitably and trading beautifully are not necessarily synonymous.

On the mentoring topic, I have not forgotten. I received a lot more response than I expected, particularly in this thread. I really wanted to do a one-on-one thing with maybe one or two people. I am not doing it for money, just have an appreciation of the importance of true mentorship, different from a purchased education.
This has been a very busy week. I am closing my business which involves insurance, accounting, contacting people personally to not burn any bridges, making arrangements for potential warranty issues, helping friends secure other work.
Plus, I set up two new trading accounts for forex this week, getting familiar with both, learning about MetaTrader4, going to the gym a lot more, I am getting ready to go out of town on Sunday, etc.
I will respond soon and go through some individual questions to decide how to proceed. I am thinking about it, with the focus being how to best approach something like this. Be patient with me, and thanks for your confidence in me.
