Kingpin Journal

Hi there

This is my first attempt at a Journal.

A little info on my trading method :

My strategy is based around all the mental mistakes I have made through this trading experience .

Trading is not black and white , its grey . Everything is about balance , a thing one will learn over years.

Here is a rough (draft?) of my lessons learned . ( do remember the points made here are not black and white.)


1. Having one simple moving average with a method to buy above and sell below , has been one of the most profitable and most difficult tasks to master.

2. "Thinking" in the trading arena or outside of the trading arena , has cost me the most money.

3. Using time as a method for controlling mental garbage has proven to be the most effective for me . Balancing it made a dramatic increase in profits.

4. Having too many rules made me lose my trading instinct. Having no rules made me overthink everything .

5. Short trades and long trades are definitely not the same! Shorting environment and buying environment behave very different . Took me a long time to grasp that

From natures side im probably one of the worst traders . I tend to become very arrogant in my decision making , I overtrade alot and im insanely impatient.
So dont lose hope !

I will keep posts of statement/charts etc coming in the next week

THanks

Congrats on starting your journal.

Mike

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)
