This trade yielded 189 points. There was a Fibonacci retracement drawn on a longer term time frame.
A short position was taken in anticipation of a trend line break. As happens frequently, price pushed higher after the trendline break, resulting in some sort of false breakout.
At a certain point while the trade was on, I placed a breakeven stop loss. Then I moved it to about +30 points. Then I exited manually. If you zoom out to a 5 minute chart, you’ll notice that price bounced around the area where there was a prior swing high.
A. This in an engulfing pattern after a close outside of the band. We should note that the candles are relatively large
B. The price went up against the short position (see the green dotted line – I did not have a stop loss order in). All I thought of was to draw a fibonacci retracement to see where price could stop. It closed above the 61 level but then moved down with momentum.
C.The green dotted line was a limit order to take profit which was filled.
