If you have been trading crypto, you have been there... and it can happen when trading many other assets as well. The momentum is in you favorite. There may even be a positive news catalyst. You wait for a breakout, price surges past the breakout line, and with good volume.
Your suspicion for a failed breakout disappears as price breaks out up, retests or not, and just continues up like a rocket. The asset is now so far away from the breakout line, that you have joined the jolly wagen and counting the cheese. Finally, a big win! Yes!
Later in the day, you get a fast reversal. Soon it is back to the breakout line, previously crossed up. You hope for a retest. But it just crashes down more and more.
Only 10 hours have past but it seems to be long days. Your profit is now a loss, or you gave it all back to Mister Manipulative Market. You want to break the keyboard and sue the platform for selling your order flow data.
