So, I did some AJ trades, the first trade I just kind of threw out there b/c of the PA. The other two trades had more reasoning behind them.
I haven't adjusted my lot size yet for my account, so the leverage is ridiculously low; just trying to keep a level head, and work on my process; also, working on being okay with taking quicker, smaller profits.
First trade (yellow to first reds)
I was actually around my computer when that first Short trade was up 30-40pips, that was .5% gain for me, but I decided to move up stops and wait. I went to sleep after the first part of the order got taken out.
Woke up, saw, the price action went in my favor and realized I had a bit more leeway to set SL above the high candle of my entry, or even the high of the previous peak (It wouldn't have even been larger than 25pips.)
Second [Long] and Third [Short] trades (purple & blue to the next reds)
Just trying to feel good taking quick pips. For the short trade I actually had a target of 77.85, for 20pips gain, but I closed it quickly b/c...
yeah, wanted to take quick pips while they were there. Shame though how it hit my target and then some (see the first pic).
Long trade = 10pips
Short trade = 11pips
