Is you signal bar the 7:45 bar with the low equal to the previous bar low?

The reason I ask is that I don't see the signal bar per your rules in that I do not see a signal bar that trades lower than the previous bar's low. I am assuming that you treated the inside bar as a continuation of the pattern or as a stand alone signal itself. However, your entry at 1157.8 is throwing me off because I would have assumed that no matter what your entry price should have been one tick below that at 1157.7.

My entry was on the bar with the red arrow. I entered at 1157.8. I usually take the low of the signal bar as my entry. The low of that bar was 1157.8. If my order was 1157.7 I would not have been filled and would have removed my order when the next bar opened. Hope that helps.
