Happens to the best of us. Did you make errors? If not, just brush it off. If you try to always be "right" you will lose your shirt.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

i think mistakes were
cl long, exit soon
re entry soon
not exit when made lh
not go short


nq
no go short
exit soon on my longs
re entry chasing at highs
no t reverse
add and when went wrong not exit ,then i was with too size

let become a winner in a loser
not watch the whole risk
maybe some revenge for yesterday
not booking +850

situation at 24 oct

i am affected for the blown up
yesterday i let a trade open ,when i went out
not took profit and i suffererd wild swings Over Night

today if i did nothing, only hold the position up to close could be+450p
instead, i exit soon, i went both sides, i start with big size to recover
overtrade, over lots, i am up, but ridiculous amount

trend or range?
this is a big issue
and i get trapped in the change of that

@alejo I want you to re-read your journals from start and realize how far you've come till now. Even though you've blown up you on the verge of progressing from step 34 in the 38 steps of trading ( https://futures.io/psychology-money-management/29066-self-coach-trading-post375477.html )

Agreed. @alejo you really have come a long way. I noticed about a month or two ago there was a real shift in what you were focusing on and you are certainly progressing very nicely.

Keep it up, you're getting there!
