Documented Trade #3 | Results

There was quite a big altcoin drop against bitcoin across the board recently which caused me to get stopped out on my latest trade. This is how it played out exactly.

So my 3rd documented trade was on Zilliqa when it was reaching some key support levels in anticipation for them to hold making another move higher. Unfortunately, the market decided otherwise as there was a drop on pretty much all altcoins.

Trade Setup:

Trade Result:

Early after taking the trade, it looked like it was indeed going to move up but the support ended up failing with quite the big move down after it set a lower low. Right now, the price is trading around where I set my stop-loss and things don't look as bullish anymore.

This was actually the first losing trade I made since starting out and I guess I should set my stop-loss a lot tighter instead of around -7%. If there is a move on the market, it tends to happen across the board with not all that much that can be done about it.

I still have to properly learn how to set stop-loss targets and will be doing some more research on it soon bringing a summary of everything I'm learning in easy to understand bite-sized pieces.
