I have already reviewed these trades but I like to go back and review them again. Hence this new format I am introducing into my process.
How was the Entry, SL placement and sizing?
There was a large imbalance at the open with price trading within M30/H4 QHi. C TPO closed as a Bear Engulf and I went in short. SL placement was goo as it was above the formation as well as slightly above swing high.
Odds enhancer: large imbalance, clean arrival H4 QHi
How was the profit target?
No H4 demand in the way for a good 2R profit target although Lots of LTF demands on the way to value edge. Still considered good.
How was the Exit?
Here is where I messed up. During D TPO I saw a flimsy M15 Bull Engulf close and I grasshoppered out of the trade for a ‑0.2R loss.
A price action-based exit would have been during G and would have only netted 0.5R.
What would a time-based exit have done for the trade?
Would have scratched or like 0.1R
What could I have done better?
I could have not grasshoppered out of the trade and stuck with it. If the trade was worth taking it was worth following my exit rules.
During G TPO there was another reversal play to the previous DTTZ which could have netted another 1.5R.
DTTZ are there for a reason and I am getting better at understanding how they work. First step to ultimately take advantage of them.
Medium timeframe bullishness pushed price higher at the next DTTZ.
