(-10) week5 XAUUSD h1 countertrend is the timing ripe and good for entry?

h1

After hitting the w1 R of 1300 , price seemed to do a Double Top.

I entered 2 positions on the break of neckline, and set my SL if it closes above the neckline.

However, I seemed to have shorted into a channel TL.

outcome

Got stopped out for this trade. I have placed a Tight SL instead of Placing it above the Double Top.
Also, I believed I shorted into support and this should not be so especially on a countertrend setup, which was not proven true as the channel has not been broken.

What I have to do next time is to either trade at MYlevels, or await bearish day expansion for reentry.
This is a case of premature entry for countertrend plays.

Another case of right direction , wrong timing. It is especially harder to get it right for countertrend trades.
Another issue will be the slower duration of trades as price dont often impulse move similar to trending trades.
