Top Reversal Full Dollar Earnings Early Exit Early Entry Decision Candle

What a move on Earnings. Bummer I missed most of the move.

I had MSFT on watch and saw it come to 104.50-104.70 resistance. It traded up towards 105 and tested it. Here it started to consolidate and I watched it for amoment to short the break down of 105 with quarter tier.

Felt really nervous and was scared of an all time grinder. MSFT traded slowly but on high volume. Have no feeling for size. In hindsight, more was appropriate.

My entry was too early. I entered within a decision-candle to be. It took 4-5 minutes, but MSFT sold off. first profit might have been too early, but I did not expect it to sell off that hard. Missed a lot of the move. Should have focused on trading MSFT as it had decent looking entries in hindsight.
