Stopped out – 7 Sep 17

A slightly smaller position size, wanted to keep my positions to £40 or under, had previously been £30. (I’m thinking I should probably increase this to £50 otherwise I’ll never progress much further.) I quite like this divergence on the 4h chart, but we’re near a trendline I had previously drawn on the daily chart.

Try not to put too much emphasis on trendlines though!

4H Chart – set up

A relatively late stage divergence which looks promising.

1H Chart – confirmation

A double divergence? Would need to see further back to confirm … one sec … yep it’s a double!

Daily Chart

Close to my trendline but not putting too much emphasis on it. The gap has already been filled.

Weekly Chart

Nothing of note really.

Monthly Chart

Into the m100. Might get a bit of ping pong between it and the m50?

Not surprised to get stopped out, but I was surprised to get slipped on this trade. I don’t think I should’ve been, reviewed the price action on MT4 and the slippage didn’t look justified. I checked with Charlie and on his chart the slippage was there, so I’ve left it, but I got slipped 20 pips and took an additional loss of £10.

Not much money, but it’s still a 20% addition to the original amount risked.

Here’s the video replay of that slippage – original stop was 1344.7 actual stop was 1346.6.

What’s worse is the next divergence that came in I missed the set up – on holiday – so I didn’t get to trade it and run it down to the 4h100. I did set an order hoping to get triggered end of the day but cancelled it over the weekend (worried about gaps – probably shouldn’t have). Either way, the move went without me.
