Daytrading the DOW

I shorted the DOW when it broke the trendline at 9740 or so.. however, it wasn’t the perfect entry as the market bounced from this area of support to go north… I had a stop at 9780 which was the previous high but nonetheless, my short wasn’t ideal as short trades should be entered on a long countertrend.

I had to watch the market go against me 30 points or so before it tanked.. it went past my entry point and I took profits at the round number 9700 for 40 points which wasn’t bad. However, the market is still going down, as I write, it’s at 9672 meaning that I left another 30 odd points on the table… nevermind!
