Day 1: Thursday, August 8, 2013

What I told myself:
...... You're either going to pay the price of discipline or the price of regret!

.

It's easy to pick holes, especially from where everyone else is sat. So please dont take this as that - but constructive criticism.

Kudos to you though for posting up.

Whether you believe in psycho mumble jumble or not (I do to an extent) I found the above sentence interesting. In your scenario, either way you're paying up. Or, you're handing money over - losing - in the act of paying. Your words have deceived you before you even begun. You've perhaps pre-programmed yourself to lose?

Or maybe there's a simpler explanation - like English isn't your first language. In which case, my bad as todays youf say.

Maltz's Psycho-cybernetics is a good read, but alas Mark Douglas offers nothing and is psyco drivel at it's worst.

Keep positive

Conclusion of My Experience Trading during the Combine:

Let's just say, I'm happy this wasn't real money. I am however, happy that I found TST because they allow me to trade through real markets, in real time, for a lot less than I would've lost. Being able to see all of trading statistics has truly opened my eyes at how I trade. In addition, the resources they provide help way beyond of anything else that Iíve ever seen.

Taking the time to relax and be patient in the next combine will be ultimate test as I start with a clean slate. I plan to post that journal here as well so others can see and provide feedback. Being told the truth from others who see my weaknesses is one of the few ways to change. Very few people make it in the day trading industry and I definitely want to be one someday. I must use all the resources available to correct my errors and learn. Iíve attached my trade report and plan to make some of the negatives into positives on my next trade report.

I'd like to thank TST and others here for helping develop my trading style. It is a continuous changing environment and requires a lot of work.

Thankyou again for everything,
COUUUCH
