Thesis: 30m Demand bounce (4527)
Where/why did I ENTER (Confirmations): CVD divergence; Friday pattern repeating itself (consolidation higher, breakdown of that structure trapping bulls and bears); Holding 4525 support
Trade plan: https://discord.com/channels/1138676731386015754/1141116469845954581/1151152382193975356
"Strong buying off the open, a move back into 4525 could provide a nice long"
How was I feeling DURING the trade (emotions): Calm as usual and very very confident tbh, as this was unfolding very similar to the play on Friday that I got stopped out.
Trade management: Not much management besides minimizing risk when price got in once again inside the 4527-4535 range, as I boosted my stop 2 points above.
Where/why did I EXIT: My SL got hit.
Mistakes: None I believe, market just didn't agree with my analysis at the moment.
What can I do to improve: Just keep my mentally sharp after this type of trades and don't let it influence my next trades...
Overall thoughts: The entry was a bit pre-mature IMO, however the similarities between Friday's setup were just too good to ignore. Could have done a better job on my exit, but managed risk accordingly as I had high hopes for this trade.
