get context for the set-up
Bounced off the daily upward trend line with a clear pinbar showing price rejection. The set-up took is also an inside bar on the daily.
On the 1H, the trend has clearly turned around defined by the impulses, correction and confirmed by 100SMA. Coil structure could be ABC however it’s not the clearest of patterns.

Entry: 51 | Stop loss: 49.9 (-110 points) | Take Profit: 54.5 (+350 points)
Remarks: Candles like this makes you wanna place the entry level lower, but this feeling is only after the trade has been triggered (benefit of hindsight). FIGHT IT!
If price breaks out favourably, risk halved
If two-thirds of anticipated impulse, shift to break even. Also, looking to add.
If breakout + strong momentum + space to run, extend take profit and use trailing stop.
Remarks: Might actually be that bullish rectangle forming. No way to know what kind of correction structure. Got out at breakeven.
Well, you messed up the trade. Shifted to breakeven without referencing the market structure and exited the trade at literally the worst possible point during the uptrend. Yes, it was indeed a bullish rectangle that ended at the bottom of the channel. And price would’ve reached take profit if trade was untouched.
The buy entry shown is from T11.
Lesson: Don’t forcefully shift to breakeven just to add another position.
