what JQL expression do I use to search for the newest issues assignee to me?

I need to show in a dashboard the newest issues that was assignee to me. I made a filter, but it return in the frist and secund places issues that are old than the third and Fourth place. here is the jql that I made:

" assignee = USER.JIRA AND status not in (STATUSes THAT DON'T matter) ORDER BY updated DESC "

Change the "UPDATED" to "CREATED"

Besides the change proposed by Gabrielle, I'd suggest changing 

status not in (STATUSes THAT DON'T matter)


statusCategory != Done

That change will probably match your needs provided the statuses you are using were well categorised- and make your JQL query more readable and easier to maintain.
