09-Oct-2012 : A dramatic small profitable day. This day was most tough to me...my confidence gone from peak to trough through series of developments. I was confident of first long to be success, but it failed via stop. With second long i was even more confidence - i thought this one had better location than first - a good reason of failure of first after the fact. I had almost taken its success for granted and moved off from screen for some time. But it shattered my confidence soon. I was discarding the potential theme behind first long failure and second going the same way. I virtually cried myself "why" its not working.

There is a psychological barrier for second and subsequent trades if any in my trading. After first trade i had always considered next everything as over trading. For long i have been trading just one trade per day. Though this has gone much for second but third trade is still seems over trading me.

I could see how theme of day has already been misinterpreted by me and move below VWAP was just stratup for correct one. But i already lost my confidence and energy. Echoes of "Sell on Rise" in this scenario seemed laughing on me - how foolish i seemed to be bought near day's high/ yday VAH / Supply level. I just wanted to BE the day, and it needed a very tough push from me to sell and cover loss.








Most days develop on one or two themes as i view the day. And each theme incorporate ideally one perfect trade. Its not feasible to get one wrong trade in a theme and get one right. This way it can only Break Even. Below is the TPO diagram where i marked three themes of today. I was betting on 1 ( Low probability , High risk ) gone late on 2 ( High probability , Low risk ) and in the latter half 3rd also appeared ( Low probability , Low risk ).

Now it should not return to 5691...if it does...then very true...not a good trade. Holding with initial stop 5691.
