What I should have done.
I should have gotten short the first hour CL_F opened back up to trade. I should have drawn a Fib from 108.74 to the open of that same bar and covered when price fully retraced that bar. Judging from how the contract started basing instead of dropping like a rock you could tell it wanted higher it just needed a short rest. There was @ least 60 ticks there just for the taking.. Oh well, the ticks that got away.
What they say about trading with money you can't afford to lose is true. It makes you second and third guess when you should be trading. I'm a trader though, and so I must trade, I'm like a moth to flame with this shit. I recently got my leveraged account back when I came to the realization that leverage is the only way to raise the probabilities of me accumulating wealth. Been doing pretty good with ES_F. The liquidity is comforting.
I HATE trades I miss even more than losers!
The moral of the story is improvise.
The obligatory shameful plug (there's more than 1 way to leverage up)
