Holy Cow, brotha !! ... what a drag. I have been blessed with great health to this point in my life.

I am living my mortality vicariously through you, my friend. I'm counting my blessings and taking heed that
you are not promised tomorrow. We must live each day as it will be your last.

I'm glad you are well and that you have worked on your Zen Quotient. The universe is a Grand place and
when you are in circumstances such as yours, I bet you can feel it just a bit more.

We need to catch up soon on the old Skyper ..... I have been neglecting family and friends, being totally
engrossed in my trading routine.

Thanks for the wake up call

aj

ps

I can't believe you didn't sneak a little trading rig in there!!

You bet, i've totally ignored some of those relationships as well.....send me an email or text on skype and we can hook up.

BRAVO showing your entries and exits.
Your transparency in showing your winners as well as the losers is Huge.
Sometimes us new guys think we are the only ones who ever have any losers and the guys who have been trading for 5-10 years clean up the market every day.
Great Job!

If you always do what you have always done you will always get what you have always gotten.
Celebrate because you executed your edge. Not because you won.

Well I've always shown the losers when I post a chart....and I've only been trading seriously for around 3 years...so I'm still learning like everyone else.....which I suspect i will be until the day I stop trading.....

After I quit today, price did a full on sell off. In times past I would be really upset with myself for missing this kind of thing. Then one day I realized I was making a choice about when to stop trading based on my experience, my temperament and the amount of time I was willing to sit in front of the charts.

Truth is, the longer I sit there the worse my decision making becomes. If I win in the early morning, chances are I'll give it back later on. Not because I'm stupid but its just experience that says look for good movement in the early morning and stop. If a big move happens during my trading hours, chances are it will consolidate for a good long while an I'm not interested in trading that.

So now when I see something like what happened today, I recognize it as simply a trade off I make. Less time at the screens sometimes means missed opportunity. It also means that many days I get to keep what I made because the rest of the day is sideways crap.

So while I would have liked to made some extra coin today, I'm content with the results. I traded my plan to the letter and that is a successful day.

The Fear / Regret of missing out has been my nemesis from the beginning.

Fear will make you chase and Regret will make you throw your computer out the window

As for market condition, I have learned to play small ball around the London open. Open it up as New York
approaches and then clamp down for the afternoon.

The sideways market you speak of is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel for me as price is "contained". I trade
across the range until price breaks.

I find it much more difficult to enter a trend..... funny how we all learn differently

I hope all is well, my friend

Thought I'd post a chart or two today. I'm done fairly early so I have time to post one before the madness starts.

Anyway, I wanted to be short from the daily chart and hopefully off a deep pull back. I took a long counter trend trade for +19 back to resistance and where I shorted. This trade failed and to be fair, was not a trade I normally take. After the strong move up, I got the deep pull back along with some strong selling right at that level. I took the first down bar and held for the top of the opening range. It took a bit but worked out just right.
