Took the loss quickly. It would have hit the -9T normal stop. Got in early; did not wait for bar to close. Often, a turnaround will happen on a high ranging bar which indicates low liquidity. In the case of move up to move down: a high range down candle would indicate a decrease in the number of bids.

getting in at the end of moves. At least I got +2 on one of them. Cutting wins letting losses run. Not good.

1216:14 Long 1 0T
Cutting losses short - good. Had a pretty high MFE - bad. Should have taken a few ticks. The first down candle in the trade was large and should have prompted me to get out.

2016.02.19 1 trade +4T


1232:23 Short 1, +4T
All the white down arrows showing Asks holding the line convinced me it was a top and then a 5 bar down candle was the structure/trigger so I went short. Location was fair. Chicken exit, but, as can be seen in the chart, PA did not get to +20T, only +12.

1011:53, long 1, -2 T
At least I got out quickly, as soon as it didn't look good. I went long after a good up bar after big down bar, thinking it was a little pullback. But it turned out to be the end of an up move. Location was poor.

Everything was good except the exit. Chicken exit. Could have made +20 with ) MAE.

2016.02.23 No trades.

Too distracted, too much fear. Must mentally prepare more at beginning of the day.

2016.02.25, 3 trades, +1T

1117:05, short 1, -1T
Entered late in the down swing, direction OK, struct poor, exit good. I want entries where PA will go my way very quickly, so I will exit if I don't get favorable movement quickly.

1233.03, short 1, -1T
Here I was picking a top. The down candle before entry was only 3 ticks long, not really long enough to indicate follow-through.

1302.56 , short 1, +3T
Entry was 1 tick late, but that's OK. Exit was fair. You can see in the cumulative delta that market buyers really came in strong, justifiying the exit. Overall from the 128 delta volume chart (on the left) this was an entry late in the run.

2016.02.26 1 trade +8

0822:30, short 1, +8T
Entry good, chicken exit. Not touching the ATM would have yielded +20T.
From now on I will say "ATM -> +20T" instead of the previous sentence.
My gain for the week is positive!!!
