Entered on a breakout of the bull flag one tick above the signal bar, looking to taking partial profits at the beginning of the channel, however, the next bar was a reversal bar to my stop.

Entered on new high, with stop at bottom of the spike, the next bar put in a large reversal bar and the next bar began to add the follow-through passed the bottom of the spike and was stopped out.

A better trade would have been to place the stop at the bottom of the trading range with a smaller position.

ROKU had put in a double bottom with an inside bar bull bar, which led me to believe that this was a continuation pattern from the trend from the open bull trend, instead of a trading range.
Once in the trade, there was a breakout, which was just really a buy vacuum to the top of the range, with yet again another reversal, however, once the higher lows held from the original entry, it appeared to be setting up a breakout pullback long and I added another full size, for a 1:1 move to move trade, however, price broke down and I exited both trades.
A couple of bars later it reversed at the double bottom support and just another confirmation (as if I needed another) that this was a trading range.

I also could have held this trade with the bottom of the range as support and held for a breakout which came at the close.

I should have realized that the 10:50 bar was a three-bar reversal, and the next bar reversed that and the next two bars reversed each other, all of which scream trading range and should have avoided this trade all together.

Strong bear trend
Entered on a pullback, the signal bar was an inside bar, bear bar at 12:20 with the entry one tick below the low and stop one tick above the high.
Front loaded full size.
Took partial profits (one tier) at a measured move of the entry bar.
Stopped out of rest of trade (two tiers)

A better trade management would have been to booked the rest of the position once the inside bar bull bar at 12:40, and even flipped to long for a scalp.
Key levels: R2-29.59 R1-29.34 Support 29

T A – Long
Daily had a pullback, causing a failed breakout, if the failed breakout fails it will setup a breakout pullback long Those are the two scenarios to be prepared for the session
T A – Mid
The 15 min ended in a tight bull channel yesterday which is essentially a bear flag which generally test the bottom of the flag on the breakdown
T A – Short
5 min put in bear reversal bar at the new all-time high, then began a trending trading range bear trend and consolidated between 104-104.25
Trade Management
Once I identified the 103.20 level I just had to wait for a test of the bottom of the higher trading range which came at the 14:30 bar, at that time I set my alarm and entry order to short at that level. That order was triggered at 15:15pm and the very next bar was the breakout test which set up a breakout pullback short, however, I already did Tier 3, full size from the beginning, as we discussed; the initial profit target was based on the height of the trading range (70c), however, after the breakout of the inside bear bar at 15:40, the odds were increased that the move would go further, so I moved my buy limit down and once ROKU put in a bear reversal bar at 15:50, the odds increased that the move would sell-off further, however, the move went so fast I did not have time to cancel my order before it was filled
Trade Review
I want to do a better job of is identifying, more quickly, when a trade will not work, and hitting out of the trade immediately, instead of
