12/16 Trade Review → -18pts/-$900 on 4 Trades:

Here’s a screenshot of the day’s action. I marked up 1 spot on the chart that I want to discuss. Keep in mind that the white horizontal lines indicate the initial balance high and low (which are the actionable entry levels for my strategy).

Topstep Funded Account Challenge - 12-16 Trade Review

1. TRADE #1: Long at Initial Balance Low → -3pts/-$150
TRADE #2: Short at Initial Balance Low → -4pts/-$200
TRADE #3: Long at Initial Balance Low → -4pts/-$200
TRADE #4: Short at Initial Balance Low → -7pts/-$350

All of my trades came within this chop. I should’ve recognized the point of control developing right above the IB low earlier and stopped taking stabs after the second or third trade, but I kept pressing. Hard to enter and keep stops tight within a choppy area like this.

Overall, bad execution on my end. Too much flip-flopping and pressing within a clear chop zone.
