Hey man...

@PandaWarrior

I am sorry if I'm jacking with your journal thread. I lost track of where this conversation is happening so of course I defer to you. When someone posts valuable shit that hits right in the face I get after it as to not lose track and miss the value points.

Hi Dan,

No worries, I am drawing value from the conversation as well. In fact I encourage this kind of dialogue. Feel free to hijack like this more often.

I think @tigertraders short hand of +\+, +\-, -\+, -\- is a good wy to represent future performance without all the attending wordiness.

So I'll use this short hand from now on.

Today was +\-

Analysis was good, entry was good, projected profit zone was good, profit exit poorly executed.

Sadness.

I sometimes wonder if positive wife is the toughest part of that equation.

There should be no doubt.

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)

One cannot undervalue the importance of your spouse being on board with an occupation
such as trading. I am quite blessed in this circumstance and thank the stars often.

A wife giving you grief all the time would make it unbearable. One or the other would have to
go .

Yes, and I think I made the right choice.

I consider this another challenge. Of course it's always a downer when someone really close to me says or does something displaying a complete lack of faith in what I'm doing. But the theory is to stay calm and not lose the plot, ever - but as Einstein said, in theory, theory and practice are the same - in practice, well

You could view it like trading. A win is when you manage to make a point that is accepted, a loss is where you lose your temper or your point is rejected. So account equity = significant other's belief and faith in my trading.

Of course you can argue that an aspiring trader should unload as much excess baggage as possible, but sometimes that's not an option. Sorry for dragging the thread more OT, Panda.

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
