    Wow that reversed quick on me - what did I miss ?

    Maybe HTF trend was up but to me 1H Market Structure was reversed to downside so thought of a intraday trade.

    It's a Monday. They swept some Lows. Now they'll sweep some Highs. More or less, that's what you missed.

    Thanks ! I saw they sweeped a high a bit after 5 GMT so I thought the buy stops were triggered already. Good point about Monday, should not have traded when I am not expericenced.

    Are you in Demo or Real? If you're in Demo, you need to make mistakes, so you can learn from them. Mondays will give you setups, but it's really more of a DayTrade setup. Mondays also tend to be a "fake out" on the Week. Doesn't mean there aren't good trades there.

    Demo (but using 100 real account to better reflect real spreads).
