Journal Notes:
When I initially set my pending orders after closing out a trade, I do so at the most recent low trading value since execution of the last trade. Every morning, I bump that up along support points up to a maximum of 99% of high price since last executed trade.

Had to wait out gold rallies, and not much opportunity to get in.
