Good day RS2000
What I am about to post is going to read as critical and resorting to hindsight. It is certainly not intended to be critical but probably does include an element of hindsight.
1 A 300 point stop. What was your target? Even a 2:1 R/R required 600 point profit ie FTSE at 7589. A 1:1 R/R required FTSE at 7289.
2 When you took the trade FTSE had risen from the low at 6692 to 6989 = 297 points. Were you really expecting it to continue up without a retrace for another 300/600 points?
3 Using the four hour chart and drawing a trendline across the highs shows that on the 20 March the SP had risen (297) points back to the trendline and a retrace was likely.
I could go on but I think I have made the point and I do not wish to prolong the agony.
