Dummy day trading #1 31-Jul-2006: E-mini Nasdaq composite: Long trade closed

I was looking for Nasdaq-100 futures to move up further to resistance level around 15550. A nice setup during the opening, I have decided to get LONG above inside bar. Bull failed to impress further and my intial stop was triggered with 1.13-R loss.
