Ah. Waking up at 9am to one that got away. A clear break over the cloud cover at about 5am, when I was tucked up in bed. The stop would have kept me in the trade for a clear 30 points on a full position entry. That’s £600 profit I missed.
Check out the chart below, then read my thoughts on this miss afterwards.
So why am I not irritated by this? Because once again EnigmaSignal was spot on. Only a 2% loss probability again, and this trade was never in a loss situation. And I know that we will get one or more of the opportunities per day. Forever.
So I don’t see it as £600 lost. I see it as £600 not meant for me. Not this time. I will wait for the next trade, and take that one. I am also reminded of the following piece of wisdom from Buddha. I’m sure he didn’t mean it about trading, but it applies anyway.
