6E first trade after many months

From my diary on 2nd April 2014:

A breakout short.

Hesitancy even when the range broke in a clear fashion (else would have been in 2-3 ticks earlier instead of 60).

Did not hold for 10-ticks, exited at 55 @ 5-ticks.

A trade that I am ashamed of

From my diary 14 April 2014:

Took the trade as an IRB long from the bottom of a range after a nice double bottom had formed.

However, moved my stop and ruined the opportunity to exit at a tiny 3-tick loss after the double bottom had been invalidated - instead took a 10-tick max stopout on the chin.

A trade called IRB, but exited early

Shorted by intuition, followed by healthy skepticism of no-setup entry, hence exited (correctly, after the mistake of no-setup entry - this is the only good thing).

Was slightly profitable by mere chance (had a method, had the target as that double bottom, but is not Bob Volman method).

In a combine, got out of harm's way when volatility exploded

I was happy enough to stop trading with a small profit when volatility exploded.

Could probably have managed to stay cool, but don't go by my word.

Was slightly flustered

From my diary on 5th May 2014 (in a TST combine, rolled over for third time)

First entry was great but I was timid.

Second (re) entry was good. Exit was good.

My stop was above the whole mish-mash of price action so I was 'safe' but does not reflect good on me for waiting so long with a losing position.

Missed (did not take, chickened out on...) this perfectly valid setup (IRB long).

Don't do it again please, iq.

A scalper lives on the edge

From my diary, 8th May 2014:

Here is how I took the trade since I got a great setup, allowed it to ride and reach the target.

But when I came back it seems that my covering was at the extreme end of this trend!

Crazy life.
