I have a long position in Gold. This morning I checked and it was well in the money. Later when I sat down to trade it was well in the hole. 20 minutes later. Now, an hour later it is well in the money and going as expected. I think it will limit out today at a reasonable profit at 2x stop.
Gold Cash, for some reason took a quick retraction. Instinct would be to close the trade before “it got worse” but I have my stop at a reasonable place and stuck to it. It paid off. Point being that these things will happen over and over again. Trick is to stick with your trading strategy. Unless of course it is obviously wrong.
