Learned a few things during this early morning trading session.

1. Relax, don't be overly aggressive with moving the stop.
2. Trust the new way of trading. Missed a long trade that would have been profitable but I wasn't 100% convinced that where I had the entry picked was the right place. It was.
3. Should have been using the 100 tick chart for entries since the market was slower than it is on days. I was using the 200 tick.

There is decent opportunities during the early morning hours. Just have to remember things move much slower early in the morning.

Going to cancel the pending order and wait for some better movement for the next trade.

Well that was over quick. LOL! It dropped down took the short and quickly came back up. I have the entries set up to move to break even +5 ticks after it moves 40 ticks in my favor. It moved it and then price came up quickly and took it out.

Here is the pic I was about to upload when everything happened.

Saved some profit because I had the stop move automatically. +160 now.

Waiting for it to settle down a bit and then look for another entry. That last trade was a wild ride.
