I'll just pretend that didn't happen

Yes, I think that is for the best.

what did you use to exit there?

Break of the white bar high. :)

It's an ADX function that turns the bar white.

I shouldn't be so flippant TeaGreedy. As I'm sure you know nothing is 100%. If you use a technical entry it will be wrong sometimes, if you use a technical exit it will be wrong some times.

My exit is actually right more often than my entry so I am quite happy with it.

However as a blogger revered by 10s I do have to create some dramatic gnashing of teeth when things don't work quite right. :)

Revered by 10s eh? :)

Yeah nothing stood out to me so was just wondering.. but like you say you win some you lose some, this is just one trade, if we looked at a full distribution of returns I'm sure we could pick out plenty where it takes a nicer chunk, worrying about any one particular trade is pointless, so long as you followed your trading plan...

I have followed my plan all week and not been as fortunate, so don't sweat the small stuff :)
