Watching the 1min chart and photocbuket's dodgy url capture dno't match very well

Seems to be going my way, maybe a shame I put such a small trade on but I wasn't 100% certain and didn't want to erase the rest of the days gains.

Took it short again on the break of the 15 minute line - not a live chart this time. Will post in a while. Just looking to see if I need to take profit. Chart in a while.

Took profit. Think I'll call it a day now.

Up on the day but not by much because of those losses.

Forgive me, I don't entirely understand your entry and exits. Are they based soley off of the indicator's signal and not necessarily relevant to the current candle's movement?

The up hop and down hop were what confused me

did you double your lot size just over the pink line? after it had been going against you (a little on a larger time frame)

I just feel a little hazy. I see the Divergence? on the cci. And then you made almost 5% on 52 points. That feels like massive gains over such small space
