Lack of discipline, combined with over trading resulted in a -$931 net loss on the day. Looking back at the Balance/Market-Structure chart, it's obvious that I should've stopped Shorting and reversed to Long once price broke above the mid-point at 9:05 AM central. High 840s was a strong area of resistance and I took a few scalp trades in that area, but was unable to capitalize on the early afternoon puke since I was busy in meetings. The only thing that saved me today was the use of tighter 2-pt stops. And the learning continues...
