I was long a ten lot at 861 when prices took out the Ross hook. Average volatility was high enough that I used a 10 point stop and a 10 point liquidation objective.

Neither stop was filled going into the doji closing bar. Just prior to the close, I decided to spread the trade off against the March contract if only to give the trade more time. I was down 3 points at the close. It cost me another $250 to find out what would happen tomorrow.

The inside doji had made another Ross hook, so I would place a buy order there, too, if the market didn't go against me overnight.
