I think it’s great you are working on this psychological trading “stuff”.

What you are doing is working toward the development of your trading probabilistic mindset.

Once this goal is reached the realization dawns that the sequence of trades, produced by the sufficient edge, that work or not can never be known. That market analysis is an all encompassing, slippery, persistent and eternal illusion sucking in 95% of traders into her powerful and mighty clutches. That unwavering pristine trade execution time and again.... mundanity an understatement... is the great calling from the summit of the mountain of cash awaiting the faithful trader of the probabilistic stratosphere.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
