I am really disappointed in my last trade. I tightened my stop to breakeven because I was too scared to hold overnight, and as you can see I would have made more than enough to offset my losses for the day.

I did "ok" today, the part that makes me a little uncomfortable is how the last trade overlaps the previous one. Usually that notes a lack of confidence in the trade, but today I did it because I had confidence in it. I'll have to keep an eye out for falling into that next time I'm in a trade that is similar.
