SB has been quoting at abnormal prices in the past two sessions. Yesterday I got a reverting signal selling today’s open.
We had pattern continuation which is translated in paper losses.
The problem is I remember the signal algorithm but I cannot recall of an exit strategy, i.e. a stop loss.
The entry was take the opposite direction of yesterday’s move if the ratio between volume and open interest is 20% above of the monthly [22d] moving average of vol/opInt.
There is good Z for this algorithm, but the stoploss is restricted to 2%. I need a heavier approach to the stop loss, at the least: the same mental effort of the entry algorithm.
As I type, probably I would be trying to hold the position with the hope a possible profit.
So, answering to the daily question of “what I am going to do wrong today, how would I lose?” I must be honest that avoiding risk management would be it.
Also I missed the rollover of N to V, which in first instance would stopped the execution process.
