Hello, I am having problems with my trading. It seems that I always pick tops to buy and short at the bottom. Attached is a chart of the ES from today and yesterday. I shorted the ES today at 15:08 at 1421.50 and covered at 1418.50. It happened to be profitable but I want to know if it was a smart trade or stupid luck. The reason I shorted was because it seemed to be going nowhere but up and down half a point. I figured the up move had finished and the next move was down. Was this a sensible trade and why? Thanks in advance for your advice!
