The FOMC published their notes at 2pm Eastern. From experience of past events I felt it would make sense to sell into any momentum that was the result of the news.
I posted the following message at 1 minute past:
SHORT DOW AT 26923.
Stop loss is 25 points.
The message board in Telegram looked like this during and after the trade. I had traded for 12 hours at this point, and I closed the trade without having a valid exit signal. I accepted that it could go further in my favour.
