Okay... Forgot to add to my journal that I didn't spend a whole lot of time analyzing my trade as I knew when I was stopped out and it ran the error that I had made. Working to get to the point in my trading to have confidence enough to trade a running stock or ES trade in either direction.

Very common advice from successful professional traders is to simplify. The simpler you make it the easier it becomes. Adding more indicators, statistics, time frames and other information will only complicate and cloud decision making.

For what it's worth, I would have to ABSOLUTELY agree with this!

So lost the money but learned the lesson I guess. NO STOP LOSS = STUBBORN = DISASTER

Hi Bill.

Do you mean that you were actually trading real money without a stop???

Regards.

Worst than drunk driving. Wow need to add to my morning routine. Also just remembered. Never did finish the morning check-sheet that I do have. My biggest losing days have been ill-prepared.

Something about auto-entry for stops just does not work in my brain for me.
Yes it is automatic, but ... Well not for me. That said I'm glad it was automatic.
Also I have tried practicing placing my stop before entry and that has helped some.


Another attempt to keep more situational awareness... Rough sketching along with notes.

Added this to my daily journal spreadsheet and printed out so as to have both.
Will have to start putting in trades too.
