Interesting info on the exact volume of 85,25 level! thanks
And also interesting points on last days price action. This trade was entered to fade the move to 2085, which I had judged as important. I think this was clearly defined by price as it reversed exactly here. Then it comes down to a) what kind of stop to use and b) how wide a stop to use, in this market setting(outside of RTH). In this case obviously it's too tight, though I'm just getting back into futures trading and need a bigger sample size of trades where I fade important levels. For this trade I was looking to make about +2 points, risking less than 1, where often I let these trades run for longer.
It needs to have a correct thread title and be in the correct location, so please clarify.
