Id let some small profit slip away and held on . Then I finally bailed just before that big EU spike.

This may be one of those gaps that doesn't get filled for a few hours (or days?)

------------

PLaying ECh same time as EU was not a good plan for me. Looks like it might turn around now, but I'm too annoyed to try it.

As for EU I saw the price action stall and should have bailed. In fact the PA was perfect long, but went against my dogma of fill the gaps. So instead of a 12 pips profit on EU I took about 5 pips or so loss. EC I lost more. good thing my pips aren't worth much

Yes I closed all my trades near 3718 on EU when I saw price stalled.

Anyways the important thing is not pips, its that you make money $ overall. I didn't made the big target I aimed for, but at least ended up with approx +10% of account.

ECH and EU are not exactly retail gaps (even if they are very appealing) so I preferred to leverage more on EG.

I had a 10 pips drawdown on EG while it would have been much more stressful on EU as I predicted. Just closed in profit my averaged up orders on EG at opening of gap.
