Reading the Tape
There was a spot where I saw a large offer and tried to work off it early in the open. I saw some action in the 61.20 range that lead me to believe I was late to that long and set up for the short from there.
This is not the way that I should have been working VWAP on this. I saw the break potential at 59. However, I felt this had a good chance of moving back into 55 ish. This broke the PM high right at the open and as it gave it up I did feel like this would move into a text of the PM low. I limited in on the test of VWAP. This gave me a quick and small profit that was not the game plan. I did need to tap out closer to 59 as this gave me the chance. I did have a 58 target and gave it 50 cents or 15 or 20 cents more than I should have had on the mental stop. A little better risk control here and I would feel better about this loss and the approach.
