An imperfect nine

I should have exited that 8th, losing trade, sooner. With a small gain or breaking even.

But I was pushing hard, knowing that if my target of 5 ticks is not reached and the market reverses, it will be a solid reversal. And it was, so I added some more contracts and went for 10 ticks.

There are two 10-pointers, roughly speaking, in this screenshot with today's e-mini trading results courtesy of KING, an e-mini futures trading course of some renown. And two of those did not last even a full minute, making them quickies.

Not a bad day, at all, though slightly imperfect.
