Trying another long in YM at 14,670. Price seems to have overcome the 14,610 to 14,660 confluence zone.

I assume you relate to slippage. I had experienced none so far in YM.

No, in previous message you wrote you got a loss.
So, I asked you which tick size of loss you got?

Or there is missunderstanding....

As I post all of my trades here, you can see in the respective previous post (#167) that I've entered the long at 14,649. In post #168 I've mentioned that I've been kicked out at 14,590.

14,649 - 14,590 = 59 points loss or 295$ per contract.

Stopped out of YM long at 14,603. Second failed long trade in YM in a row... Flipped here to short... Is the bull run over?

Reason for my short covering: trend line (not the beginning confluence as shown in the chart; was just busy and couldn't post it earlier)

Short again in YM at 14,543. Upmove outside of overnight confluence zone seems to have failed.

Changed my mind... covered remaining 50% at 14,512 with a profit. Thought it gets down faster...
