VWAP Fade Top Reversal Double Down Bad Exit Bad

I knew $JD was weak today. I knew(!) it would eventually go lower. What I did not have, was patience!

When I already were 250 shares short it took another run up. Instead of stopping out, I erratically added to my short just to exit at the worst moment. Not for a big loss, but still BAD TIMING.

What I actually did good, was to add another 100 shares short when I actually saw $JD being weak and having trouble to go any further.

I messed up again when I took off 50% at Break-Even.

Soooo many times, a stock stops (mostly at my break-even), remains there for a moment, seems to bounce, but doesn’t, I exit, stock contiues lower.

Sound familiar?
