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.
- Open Sentiment
- Open 0.07xASR Above Value, Within Range, Moderate Imbalance,
- Value Acceptance to Sustained Auction Down
- Sustained Auction Down
- Proposed Entry Technique
- Break of IB, although due to the value acceptance being so deep an entry at re-test of value edge would’ve been better but this never came
- I tried a sell limit order after C TPO had extended below but my order got missed by 2–3 pips (even though I had put sell limit order lower than usual)
- SL Placement
- I used a 30 pip SL even though the standard was 40 pips. The more I am writing this review the more I am thinking it might not have been a missed trade after all. I believe the leading narrative was the Developing H4 Three Inside Down with the value acceptance as a ‘OODA loop criteria’ to monitor for confirmation.
- TPO period for Entry
- C TPO
- Trade Duration
- Within one hour 2R target would’ve been hit
- Leading Narrative
- Developing H4 Three Inside Down
- Value Acceptance followed by a rotation through value indicating a possibility for a sustained auction
- Reason for missing the trade
- I was late to get to my desk after being caught up at work.
- Target hit?
- Yes, 2R
- Time-based Exit?
- Overlap Noise?
- End of Day?
- Highest R multiple?
- Target hit?
- Good that I didn’t chase the market
- Good that I tried to find an entry that fit my risk criteria and when I couldn’t that I let it go
- I guess I could’ve been at my desk earlier but sometimes life gets in the way which is no biggy

After the deep value acceptance there was no test of value edge before the conitnuation
