>>DAYTRADE:

2. ES bot short (-250)
3. YI long my own trade (-200)
>>SWING: Hold YM, S, YG

---TUE ---
>>DAYTRADE:
1. GC +500
>>SWING:
1. Long YI
2. Hold YG, YM, S

---WED ---
>>DAYTRADE:
1. GC my own trades -3000. Very disappointed in my behavior. 2 big short signals and didnít take them. Failure to adapt with the market. Going to focus now on more bots to replace my bad behavior.
>>SWING:
1. Long RB my own entry. Got back in the bot trade.
2. Manually closed YI and YG at break even
3. Manually closed YM +900, then got back in same price
4. Long YG my own trade. +900. Daytrade but it meets the overnight rules as I bought the US close and sold during the asian session.


---THU ---
>> My own trades:
1. Long CL +1000
2. Short GC +350
>> Bot trades
1. Holding: RB, YM, S


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FEBRUARY - live trades, trading bot and my own
Profit factor 1.19 down from 1.31
Avg Profit per trade $20 down from $39
Max consecutive losses 10 up from 9
Maxx DD $5,557 up from $3,300
February behavior had more consistent periods of self control. However, a few days of falling apart ruins a trading plan. Extremely important once again.
*Recurrent emotional breakdown is lowering performance results.
*Count consecutive losses as they DO reveal my mental fitness
* Stay focused on that higher time frame.
