I played the Dow countertrend yesterday, the Dow had fallen heavily and I took this to be the start of the downtrend after weeks of bullish movement. I was expected to see a pullback from the bullish movement of the DOW and this was my signal for it. After the huge move down, there was an initial move up and this was what I took to be the pullback before lower prices. Unfortunately, I was wrong this time.. the DOW powered ahead.. it's shot up around 200 points and have broken the previous high!

Unfortunately, I had two losing trades this week... firstly the USDCAD long I had gone long this pair as it looked as though the downwards momentum had stopped.. I could see some support here. When I got a bullish signal, I entered long. However, this was very short term as the trend was still short and my stop got hit. My next trade was the DOW short: I got a bearish daily pin bar and the market had recently breached higher yet fell.. a bearish signed. I went short.. unfortun
This was most annoying. I had sold the DOW last night as you know with a 50 point stop and target. The price moved up and took out my stop before it plumetted.. it would have hit my target as you can see nicely. It's always difficult to know where to put your stop.. it can always be either too tight or too far away.. you just have to stick to your plan. In fact, I think in the coming days we may see lower prices.. all markets seem primed to move lower but they will do what they need to do
