    Good evening Capt­ian. I’m sure your wear­ing your silk paja­mas by now.

    I am now doing my dai­ly plans before see­ing yours to see how they match up.
    as expect­ed we seen some of the same things described dif­fer­ent­ly, which is a con­fi­dence boost­er for me.
    I also noticed i might be hav­ing what they call ” begin­ners luck” so i want to keep my emo­tions in check, lim­it the num­ber of trades.I write down what i see, mark my lev­els, note the trends and observe Price action. 

    One que­si­ton for today :

    I played a short, failed auc­tion on GC.
    lat­er in the lon­don ses­sion i cut it short for a -.7R ( oth­er­wise i would’ve got­ten stopped out for 1R). ulti­mate­ly the trade went my way.
    i based my entrance on a 5 min extend­ed dis­tri­b­u­tion fol­lowed by a bear­ish engulf­ing. pic­tures below:
    QUESTION : Is there some­thing i missed or did i get it com­plete­ly wrong ?

    You were not com­plete­ly wrong. Based on the Open With­in Val­ue and Wide IBR a Failed Auc­tion was the more prob­a­ble play. How­ev­er, ADR get­ting exhaust­ed dur­ing LN could be an indi­ca­tor for a uni­di­rec­tion­al day and thus a con­tin­u­a­tion. Which did tran­spire by the end of day. Also a Failed Auc­tion needs to have the Price Action close with­in IBR. Prefer­ably min­i­mum a M15 can­dle and then even prefer­ably on the hour / half hour mark. So not quar­ter past, quar­ter to. Seems like you jumped the gun here.
    Tricky is that this could some­times work due to the open nar­ra­tive I just explained. I call this a Rever­sal to Failed Auc­tion play where you mon­i­tor for a FA after entry on the rever­sal. Still needs a strong price action for entry though. Which came lat­er after ASR got exhaust­ed. M15 Bear­ish Inside Bar that final­ly tran­si­tioned into M30 clos­ing with­in IBR.
    Kudos to you for rec­og­niz­ing that you might have “begin­ners luck”. Hav­ing said that this is only one trade that you did not exe­cute prop­er­ly so too soon to bash your­self on the head for not per­form­ing well. Focus on get­ting the setups right with­in the right nar­ra­tive. After 50+ trades you can look back and see where your strong and weak points are. Keep at it.
