    Take Profit @ 224.92 was struck yielding 100 points.

    Funny was the fact that prices headed down to original take profit @ 223.92.

    Reason I moved was mistakenly I saw a spinning top forming, and I got frightened.

    Also, I was becoming really emotional I had been tracking myself.

    When a trade is open, I'll assess the level of emotion.

    Out of 5.

    1 - being unemotional, impartial, banal, my ultimate goal.
    3 - being somewhat involved mentally, my usual range.
    5 - ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG ! (possibly bad or good. . .hopefully good)
