I think you are trading too many products.

What works for me...
Read 'Trading in the Zone' by Mark Douglas
Zone into high probability trade setup
Allow only two bullets for each session on each product

... remember, not only let the trade setup comes but also wait for target(s) to hit, FIRST.

Good luck!

Find the missing piece of the puzzle... Let's be amazing, be awesome in trading today!
