This did not get the result I was anticipating... that's trading... but it does bring up a valuable point about how to think. If I was in combat and had to do something 'risky', one of the questions I would ask myself is 'who's got my back'? That is, if at all possible, I would want something/someone providing 'back up' in case I got stuck in an undesirable situation. It does not mean I am 'safe', but certainly 'safer'.
When ever you place a trade, you can think... 'who's got my back'?
That is, if the trade does not go to plan, is there something providing 'back up' in case I get stuck in an undesirable situation?
Its an excellent question to ask yourself before you pull the trigger....
