Cash trades x3: down about $50 on day

Hi all just realized I forgot to put my summary of my trades in my journal today. OOPS... Well maybe the entries on chart will make up for it. Okay a bit tough to see. All trades were long. Hmmm fighting the market overall trend today are we? Two three tick gainers and one two point loser.

Joys of the Internet


Joined @BoltTrader having internet troubles this morning. One minute I had it the next I did not. Talking with the COX computer was a pain in the tail end. While I was waiting for the switch to a real person after not having connectivity fixed my problem magically went away. I think it was on COX side not mine. Oh well.

The thing that I did that I was happy about:
1. Did not rush into trading after handling all this garbage.
2. Made sure to finish my entire pretrade check sheet for the day prior to trading even though I was seeing trades immediately after getting connectivity.
3. I took my time with the troubleshooting and did not rush into disconnecting wires as COX suggested. (One thing about trading you learn to suspect everything.)

Well that is how I started my day. I have the itch to get out of here as could have done so much better if my head was screwed on tight today. I realized as I went through the day that the COX issue had taken me off my game.

NOPE I TOOK ME OFF MY GAME, as I am responsible for trading not COX.

Will have my end of day post in a bit ....

5 Cash Loses: Perfect Example of Brains leaking out today

Yep... Just did not have my head in the game and it showed everywhere. Guess I need to have my head low before and after birthday. Have the after birthday covered, but not before. Taking the day off today would have been a good thing to do.

Not even going to go in the SHOULDDA Camp.
Key rule violations: Added to loser/ traded more than one contract/ moved stop away from price after initially setting stop. There were others too, but those were the biggies.

6Tick CASH one trade// Mistake saving chart reason deletion// Video long boring

Long tiring day here. Not that I got much done, just that when it is hot it is hard to think strait.
Turning off chat rooms actually helped.
