Some emotion rides for these 2 trades. Decided to only exit the trade with NFLX after holding TOO long, emotions got into me instead of following the signalling rules.

Got “scared” and exited FB instead of letting profit run. FB’s price was around $85 when I exited. It went on to soar to $89 during the next 2 sessions. Arrgghh…
