    no, it wasn't you I had in mind with that characterization - but someone much closer to me... obviously you today saw reasons to deviate from the strategy. now you say you never want to do that again. an alternative would maybe be considering this as an experiment, that confirmed (even) under today's circumstances, you should have stuck to the plan - so you've learned something about your strategy which is an improvement. and accept that you might be doing similar experiments in the future, and fine-tune your strategy in this sense. in my case today was the opposite - it was probably the first time that I managed to stick to one rule of my relatively recent plan. I had already managed to stop chasing losses, but today I think was actually the first time I managed to not chase lost winnings.. so don't be too harsh to yourself - if occasionally you deviate from the plan, consider there are people for who sticking to the plan is still a rare occurence...

    Yes, I agree. If that is your approach, then it would be inconsistent to deviate under any circumstances. ...which some cynical, ignorant loser might btw label an inherent weakness of strategies that can be back-tested.... strictly speaking its also wrong, of course one could maybe try to come up with a scoring system for the news - e.g. Covid outbreak in China eight bearish points... Mnuch meeting Nancy one and a half volatility point... something like that. for sure there are algos/AI which do that and backtest it constantly... As a human you can only ignore it...

    was a genuine question, but I guess the answer is yes?

    my biggest mistake today was to miss that this last move was actually the close...! completely forgot about time. I would have expected to have made that mistake 20 years or so ago - but well, instead it had to be today. went long extremely fast - and of course too early... embarrassing - and not cheap..

    now they'll bring it back to 11400, then it will calm down and I will try a long again.

    yes. (went long again. stop at 11335.) to me this just looks highly oscillating these days. indicators may be late - and with that volatility give exactly the wrong signal. some levels seem relevant (think Caseynotes got an important point there) - that seems to work these days. I don't want to risk much these days - rather getting out too early and getting in again once it looks clearer. hence shorter time frame.
