Nett result of day = -7+5 = -2 Pts after comm.


This day and trades taken were little similar with yday...both were developing similar way so not much surprise.
Initially i thought to stay away , as it was near middle of yday balance and overlapping bars were of not my liking , but after some wait i jumped for it. This could be termed as violation of my "would be" future trading plan that might include to keep a sting nose towards balancing structures.
Today i felt, Stop and Exit are two faces of a Coin. They have some generic similarities and yet demands different mindset to placement which decides the fate of trade. If i feel Yang characteristic for Stop( be alerted , active ) then Yin describe Exit ( remain idle, wait, steady ). But sometime they behave oppositely. Perhaps their characteristic much depends upon time and location. Its hard puzzle at this time but if it has arose this time in this way for me then guess its solution is also preparing in near future.

After my Long( 5368 ), price rejected first time from 5372/73...it was normal to expect. It stalled a little and then bar marked 1 start forming. It shoots to 5372 that was the instance i finally decided to put stop at 5363. But it slumped back - now this was really not good and alarming. It made rectangle B just as A which was basis of my Long. If A prefer Long then B prefer Short. At most i could exit at bar marked 2( opposite standard entry ) but i got stub with my decided stop of 5363.
Second trade short was taken with some recovery mentality - "why i took a trade at first place when i can see it is in balance" type. And hence only took some impatient profit.

I see possibility of two scenarios.
One is obviously holding of "Test" Point ( approx 5330 lvl ) which formed after test of LTZ1 and rejection from local balance center point. This is obviously seen as bullish as long as "Test" Point is not blown.
Second i contrarily see as four step development , which has not yet formed lower 2nD SD point falling in Target Zone 1 , approx 5300 lvl. Below "Test" point of first scenario i see this second scenario to be validated having Target zone as shown.
