Trading Journal Day 15

in steemleo •  18 days ago 

Still on the Prowl?

Today was mostly a consolidation day, although I did stop out on my OR and FOSL from yesterday.

Will this bear get any closer, or is he preparing to retreat into the distance again?

Open Trades

While everything else about an open trade is established at entry, the ‘stop loss’ order will be adjusted periodically over the life of a trade. The idea is to move the stops at key price points and let the profitable trades keep running.

With quite a few of these shorts moving in my favor, I'm marking bold the stops that I adjusted today.
