Shorted DOW after it’s retracement

The DOW was clearly in a downtrend today but when I got to the charts, it was retracing and I looked for an entry to go short. I went short around 10610 after the retracement make a double top in the 5 minute charts (also stochastics has peaked). The first support line was at the pivot point S2 but nothing happened and the market broke through this relatively easily. I was also conscious that stochastics were at a low too and would look to making some move upwards so when the market hit 10585, I took my 25 point profit.

I am expecting the market to go lower at sometime today, even possibly touching the low point of today but after a retracement up again.
