DislikedI got stopped out today at BE on the second lot.
A few things I learned (especially about me): ...............Ignored
The key two things I've learned from it are:
1. TO FOLLOW THE TREND! Of course learning is one thing and doing quite a different thing, and I can quite see why you took the trade based on candle PASR observation. Had you come out of it when the bull candle hit the TL you would have made a profit, but that would have been an ATM trade which is okay as long as you know at the start that that is what it will be. Had you thought of it as ATM in your plan you would not have held on.
2. THE IMPORTANCE OF MM! which you have illustrated beautifully in the summing up of the end of this trade.
So thanks again for posting. It all seems relatively straight forward when considered from the outside but I am well aware that it ain't and have yet to do any trading even at demo level so hats off to you!
