Losses are part of trading. When I would switch to live trades and those losses equal real money, that influenced the execution of my plan (my edge) and that's where I would get in trouble. Once I adequately funded my trading account the losses became less of a concern, no longer preventing me from taking the next trade. My account has continued to grow.
I think 1 min charts are great for the TICK. The shorter the time frame the less predictable IHMO. Plus with time based bars you can't really get a great feel for the speed of the market as you can with say volume bars, big ones. Exits are definitely the hard part. Anybody can have a winning trade heck a whole series of them. Its a random distribution of wins and loses. Completely impossible to predict the sequence of them. But very few can have winning trades consistently. So I would ask this question and not be to concerned with the entry, it basically one of the easiest parts: What is your risk management, risk mitigation plan, risk strategy. How much of your acct do you risk percentage wise to see if your trade will work? Does this fit with the most professionally traded instrument in the world, ES. Is it just to sexy to not trade it? What percentage of time does your trade ideas work. Probabilities on them like from Excel or something similar. You can use these free Rainbow tools to pull chart data to the clipboard and then pop it into Excel and crunch. Do you seek to place a stop behind some market structure or just a set number of tick from entry? In the pic you posted it seems to me you were getting in late in the down trend and I know all to well its from hesitation. How do you come up with trade location, your areas to conduct business in? Trading errors are the single biggest issue on the road to consistency. Flawless executions (this assumes all other homework type stuff is well done) is the best we can do as traders. This is all IMHO......
