be attune to what's moving.
/cl was strong premarket -- spiked up 90 ticks - then gave most of it back -- so lots of opportunity... especially playing off 5 min candles with long tails at support, then resistance.
/tf barely moving.
tight range - FOMC -- must acknowledge /tf is untradeable....
meanwhile -- /cl has jumped 3x -- big swings... volatile.
tried to get a bounce on /tf twice... lost 2x for 20 ticks.
Was not acknowledging total reversal....
Saw the short set up but did not take it.
Unwilling to accept reversal after Fed day - but that's the best time for reversals to happen... too much profit taking... too many still thinking buy the dip -- not following the charts. /tf 838 to 828.
/tf 828.1 -- no buy signal. Tempting -- but chart says no.
What I did poorly: Did not wait for a clear signal. Did not take a clear signal when presented.
What I did right: Honored my stops and kept losses from spiralling.
