stoploss

After a long time of mixed signals and/or difficult market circumstances, all signs were right to take this long trade. The previous day showed a significant rally into the close, the neural networks all turned bullish. 

Anticipating a small retracement of that late-day rally from the previous day, a good level was found to put the limit order. But as so often, chances and probabilities are just that. The market just kept on going lower significantly which made the stop loss look small. Yet, that small trajectory counts 20 points (from 4255 down to 4235), which was the maximum loss I was willing to take on this trade. Also, it meant that circumstances had changed, and there was not going to be a higher close. 

So although it was a loss, all procedures were correctly executed and the stop-loss saved us from an even much bigger loss.
