Yes indeed, I took your exact same entry later in the morning, sat on it for one hour and dropped it for -2T for the same reason. Then I had to go out to collect new spectacles - maybe I get a clearer view of life and charts next week!

Have a good w/e.

Travel Well

Wednesday trade

Dax short 10:30 to 13:00

entry @ 9632
exit @ 9638 (SL)
result minus 6 points

Interesting start with gap up and strong upmove.
So SL tight as the underlying trend is still very bullish...
..new ATH in first 30 minutes

Friday trade

Dax short 09:30 to 13:30

entry @ 9749
exit @ 9759 SL
result minus 10 points

IB volume not so high as on the two trending days this week.
SL still tight as this is a reversal trade

Still too much bullish movements to get the normal pattern.

Sure that around ATH touched several times a short attempt is riskier - therefore the stop loss is
adapted to this special situation to get without a big loss.
This is the only time where a trade has to be watched here in this system. Normall the SL settings
are only desaster stops to be out of noise but near enough to let not losers run

Have a great weekend

PS: Trading is NOT a 100m race...
It IS a MARATHON
