These are trades I could have tak­en but for some rea­son I did not. This could be due to me not pay­ing atten­tion or sim­ply not feel­ing like trad­ing. This is usu­al­ly the case when I am not in the right state of mind due to lack of sleep, per­son­al issues, etc.

  • Rea­son for miss­ing the trade
    • At the time I couldn’t man­age a 2R tar­get so I opt­ed out of the trade as I thought a sub­par tar­get is allowed on Failed Auc­tions but my cur­rent rules dic­tate I can’t exit with­out hit­ting 2R. So I let it go. I know now I could’ve entered with a slight­ly tighter stop as out­lined in this review.

Good points

  • Good that I was stalk­ing the trade
  • Good that I opt­ed not to trade it as I couldn’t man­age a good 2R tar­get at the time

Bad Points

  • After G TPO closed I knew the trad­ing idea was still valid and I could’ve tried a short nonetheles.
