Been trying my hand on the daily chart in my spare time. This chart shows what my thinking has been. I have been short for a while now but I acknowledge I might be wrong. I've seen this bull flag developing now for several days and of course this could mean a nasty break to the upside against my short position. Keep in mind, this is just an exercise and not actual trades. Still, I like to be right.....

My original short position was in the money for quite a while, the two subsequent adds to that position are underwater and dangerously close to a stop out.

Hi PandaWarrior, that +20 trade you made Friday looks inspired - not your normal method, am I right?

Quite right, not normal but I figured it would blast down for at least one more bar before reversing.

Interesting stuff about pandas - quote:

For example, did you know that if a panda gets struck by lightning, its black hair turns white and its white hair black? A spread from the book shown above reveals this affliction. These bears are known to pandologists as negative pandas.

Mistakes and missed opportunities

+20 on the day.

8 passed trades...all winners = missed opportunity.

4 mistakes cost me 30 ticks.

100 ticks of poor trading.

I didnt really trust anything today due to the price action. But I was really patient and took the ones I thought would work.

Mistake one was the first trade. Didnt wait for it to touch the MA
#2 was being greedy on trade two. It went ten and I wanted more
#3 was moving my stop to BE to fast on trade 4
#4 moving my stop to soon on the last trade.

Pink boxes are trades I saw in real time and passed on for some reason

Red circles are trend reversals I saw in real time and passed on.....

Profitable day to be sure and I am grateful but I executed very poorly today.

20 ticks is really very good.

But why do we look at the ones that got away? To make sure we dont miss it when it comes by the next time.

Nice work PW. I mean nice work on the self examination.

There are a few trades(or non trades) you wish you could have back.

Yes, I too wonder the value of this, but surely there must be some. I think due to confidence, probably not thinking about it would be the best, but to have it sink into your brain to let it go would also increase your confidence if you were right like PW was today. I wonder...
