Let's talk about recovery from a poor start to a trading session.
Like this one…
So here's the plan in three stages…
Whenever you step away from a chart and miss a sequence of price action, you can almost always look back at it with hindsight and see opportunity that you could have taken.
It wasn't yours to take.
When you've started a session poorly and have struggled to get in sync with the price movement, your job is to step back and clear your mind. Any opportunity you miss during that period of recovery is irrelevant. Let it go.
Step back. Clear your mind.
Define the edges of the structure which caused you problems.
And then wait until price has broken that structure and the market has shown you the directional bias.
Only then is it time to trade.
