Job numbers came in way higher than expected, which drove futures down. Market has since turned green.

I got into TSLA puts on a break of support. I should have gotten out immediately but I held through several resistance levels and ended up getting stopped out for a big loss. I had 3 contracts.

I bought the puts at just about the low, betting on a break below support. UVXY was also going higher. Then the reversal. I don’t think there was any way to anticipate that. The only thing I could have done is managed my stop level better.

Feeling very unsure — need to focus on managing risk.
