It has become apparent that the sale of URTY on January 2nd was the wrong move. The robot did this because the market had a huge uptick and the URTY trading model says “sell on a big jump” in case it is an exhaustion gap. But it wasn’t one in this case. If I had not sold on January 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th, then I would still be holding it today and the stop price would by now be above the price I sold it for. Oh well. It’s all probabilities. I am not changing the trading model based on this one mishap.
