Hedges and money management. Around $9k of the gain in this trade was from hedging. Had price not gone against me, my end result would’ve been less.

I was set to buy more if SPY got down to $105 which would further lower my average cost, but part of the reason I sold today was that is a long way away and if price decides to go back and forth between 120 and 112 again without making it down to my next buy point or going up to a net profit area, I don’t want to sit around waiting. So I saw a good opportunity today to exit and I did.
