There's also another loss on that chart - to the right can you see there's a short RB which is lower than the previous long RB, you could well have been looking for a short there and got caught out.

Yes
To be long, a short RB is overcome by a long RB
And vice versa

And as I noted - spot the loss on the chart I marked up
And the long was dodgy imo too

Scalping involves lots of concentration. I hope you have the time and patience to survive it. Good luck

It can be alot more difficult than it needs to be.....

Tip: Don't be a Yalie, be a Rat! Alot less thought process.
