Money-wise this was a great morning. But I do not feel I traded well on Stoxx. Trade 1 I cut too short. Trade 3 was not in my plan but it was a good setup (that would be in my plan if I were to allow counter-trend trades). Buyers came in and so I gave it up. The buying was short-lived and it dropped down. I don’t regret getting out because it was not a planned trade. Trade 7 was a bit risky on 2nd test and so I wasn’t giving it much room. When it was stalling just ahead of the open and VPOC I got out. Will find out later if that was a good decision. I did not like how the volume was printing on the sell side. I wanted to see strength on the buy side.
I realize I’m not allowing my winners to make it to their targets. I need to work on this.
