First trade today, a sell at 84.936. Entries are the checks, exit the X. I took this about the top of the trading channel with CCI at 100 and RSI at 75. PA continued up and took another sell at 84.983 with CCI at 200 and RSI at 100, much better position. In retrospect, I shouldn't have taken the first trade as it didn't meet my rules of a short at 200 and RSI at 100. The reason is because the trading channel at that time was bouncing between 84.90 and 84.95 with the CCI between 100 and -100. That's a very narrow channel and should be avoided by a beginner, although Forexcube does it frequently.Exit was at the bottom of the trading channel and CCI at -100. Lesson: Both were profitable but stick with higher probability trades, like the second.
