IDEA (D[4H])

formulate a trade idea – your analysis, a likely possibility // set-up play out

download (1)Same analysis as T17 – re-entering as the first execution was terrible. Idea is still valid. Price bouncing off an area of resistance with an ABC corrective wave, that wave is now over (broken TL + SMA cross) and a sell setup has formed on the 1H.


trigger for the mentioned idea, what you want to see: clean impulse + choppy correction

download (2)Structure has changed with support becoming resistance and 50/100SMA confirming and providing the TAZ. This is complimented with the additional confluence of stochastic coming out of the oversold region as it does with the TAZ. Likely to be on the correct wave cycle this time instead of T17.

Stop Loss

Manual. Reason:

Trailing Stop

Take Profit

Remarks: Yes that was a valid sell setup initially. But management was not there. After the sell setup played out, there was very little selling pressure and it started to form a longer term buy setup – you saw that but did not do anything about it. At least stop loss should have been halved above the swing high or shifted to breakeven after the bearish engulfing at the entry point.
