Ended up with two trades that triggered after the market headed away from our short idea early, and both worked fine in the afternoon. See NQ and ES sections below.
Total ticks: +18 ticks.

Triggered short under VAH at A in the afternoon, hit first target for 6 ticks at B and kept adjusting stop until we stopped out at C for about 17 ticks to that exit:
