50sma bounce trade

Here is another classic 50sma trade that happened while i was giving a lesson to my cousin sitting next to me.

Price had fallen down to 31 and moved about 25 pips away from the 50sma. Then the price started moving right back towards it, we know from earlier that the price had found support at the 56 area, which is where the 50sma was intersecting plus i started getting YELLOW for ob, so SHORT!!!


9-bought off the area to the right that i felt held support instead it dropped more i got YELLOW so i held and exited +1
10-and shorted off the spine into the down move, once again price started moving against me i had 63 as the top of my stop it broke it -10
11-got yellow took the short +7
12-and bought into what i now perceived as a small up move, this went against me but i held a bit. finally turned and came my way +3
13-got yellow bought at 50, should have waited to see if it tested the low at 47, oh well +4.  This is at the end of my trading slot 11:30am 1/2hr before london closes... 

NY #1-8

Trend was up
1-took the buy off the green, did not take the 5 pips thinking it was going to test the highs again at 3400 But NOOOO, got yellow 10 away so i added with the trend. finally it came back and exited on the yellow +3.
2-yellow stretched a bit higher and I shorted off the consolidation +5
3-price consolidated around 75-80, it felt i wanted to get in a buy around as low as possible in this range so i bought at 76 +5
4-price came back down the 69-71 area where is was at previously so i took a buy there +5
5-priced pushed lower and started getting yellow right at the 50SMA on the 5min chart, BUY +5
6-shorted off the exit thinking it was going to push hard through the 50sma +10
7-took the buy off the exit got out of where the previous low was which now become the short term resistance at the spine +5
8-shorted again +3

10-took the buy off the yellow +12

NY #1-5

Trend is UP so looking for pullbacks to buy and key bounces
1-got green yellow but waited to get in at 00 +7
2-same trade +7
3-got yellow had resistance at 17, took the short, it stalled briefly then kept going. So my mind set is on any small pull back i will exit -2
4-still yellow my next bounce target was 26, same thing went against me, came back, thought it was going drop to 17, then went back up so now I am looking to exit minimal damage -4
5-finally it DID come back to 17 where i bought and exited at 26 +8
