I had a neutral straddle approach... respecting strict MM settings, but even if I kept respecting my RR bases, I started playing around with the money management aspect of the business, a signature of turbulence ahead for the unprepared....
So this is it, market says up, and bear trap it is.
With fees and all, I must make 20 pips to break even.
It cost me 13 gross pips to find the trade of the day.
Now I have it and I am leveraging my bull position on 10 pips
to first break even, and on the second, reach my 10 pip goal for the day.
Nobody said it was easy. my preparation will give me my pips.
