Looking through my trade history, it seems that I missed out on around 40 pips by closing early on 13th (SL moved and hit) and 18th (manual close). I should stop manual tinkering...

On the other hand, there were days when I could have closed mid-day. This does not concern me too much, though. I did not set out to "better" this strategy by monitoring trades all the time. I just need to make sure I don't destroy a potentially profitable system.

Trade currently showing +£2.52.

looks like a bigger move today.
Unfortunately, I am on the wrong side of it at the moment !
-£20 open.

Yesterday, it was all going my way (down), but US jumped in and practically erased my profit. I wonder whether it will decrease my loss today ?
