Still Trading FEAR based

Took two trades today. After that and closing them early refused to reenter. Oh well I still have loads to learn.



Have to stop letting FEAR tell me to cut my winners, to avoid risks

It is a learning process for me.

SIM day: Accident at first on purpose later.


Oh forgot to mention in my journal that I leapt for joy after realizing that I was in chart trader not my cash account after losing $166.65 on my first trade. Just something about today was a tad off from the start, but then I went to the #1 trading rule... Trade Well not to make money. I did the best that I could from there out. I think that maybe not having a hard stop in for trades #3 and 4 immediately may have been a bad practice and will have to work on that too in the future.



WARNING WARNING WARNING
Not sure if anyone wants to watch video as I forgot to have cursor highlighted and also forgot to set the microphone on. UGG what a day. Uploaded it as sort of a reminder to myself. Also if you want a full day condensed to 16mins.

LOL.

Well, some days just suck.

It'll be a better one tomorrow.... It always is.

Take care.

FEAR has ruled this WEAK

Yes I spelled it wrong.... I need to build up my trading muscles that is for certain.


Now if you want to see a good video about hot to spot possible entries and then not take them here is one that is a bit boring below. This habit has to stop next week.

Chop Chop Learning Day

The market is a great teacher.


Ain't pretty but it is what I trade. Now if I can just keep better focused.
Hardest part to trading is the six inches between my ears.



Finally got a video that is working a bit better. Have to work with Tony Robbins CANI principle with all of this.

Trend Trading for Dummies...

Yepper's there actually is a book out there by that name.
I'm slowly going through the book as I really have found that Dr. Barry Burns teaches and writes the way I like to learn. I am sure that we all have instructors and mentors along the way that have struck a cord with us.

I am attaching a zip file of the links to the extras you can download from the ForDummiesWebsite.

If you like what you read then maybe you may also like to get the book. So far it is a great read and this is even after taking all of Barry's "Top Dog Trading" courses.

Kick the tires and see what you think of his writing.

If you like it you may also like the book. I find that the "For Dummies" books are anything but.

Today: COULDDA WOULDDA SHOULDDA DAY


I COULDDA stayed in CASH, after all I can afford it. WOULDDA stayed in CASH if my trading muscle, SHOULDDA stayed in CASH.

Entry isn't marked as big today... Forgot to do the chart marking after the end of my trading day.


Here is my video at the end of the trading day... Mostly a bunch of ranting about lack of having trading muscles etc....

Have a super rest of your week.
