    You fail to mention your exits on all these trades today. Are you scaling in or something? Are you taking profit or losses?

    Mmm. Now what would net P/L have been if you stuck to the hard targets you set for each trade? Could that be figured?

    Easily. The target was only reached on one trade. Had I taken that target and not expanded it twice, the P and L would be a positive 3.25 pts
