Day Four, session one

Day 4 was done in two parts - this is part 1 which is slightly better than breakeven.

Day Four, session two

In his heart iqgod knew he was better than this and hence he came back at night to trade again:

Day Five (Thanksgiving)

Day 5 was good chart reading and good trade management but started off with a "scared" exit - actually a premature entry with a proper exit and hence the first trade was a loser. However the second trade, an IRB short was a correct read and hence I scaled in and walked away. (a FIRST!)

The result - the market hit my target and then reversed to the tick, and the day was a winner!



I noted that liqudity was not good earlier and stop hunting was rampant as the market moved in volatile swings, which reinforces not trading on holidays.

Day 5: Report Card



This day could have been better. As @PandaWarrior succintly puts it, this is a game where constant improvement is the norm: The "sun rising over my improving trading" phenomenon.

Day Six

Day six saw iqgod badly messing up on a range break trade where he "knew" he should be mainlining discipline and going short as the range broke but instead he went long with a sly look in his eyes "aha, the market's gonna fool all the shorts and then run up".

Lesson: Trade what you see and what you have been anticipating. The market is as intellectual as a fist fight.



The crossed out sell arrow represents a "trade not taken".

Day Seven

While day 7 was a small winner, the mistake that happened was that I entered early and got so exhausted by chop that I was getting out "with relief" where I knew I should be adding on or atleast waiting to simply collect the money that was due to me. Good sense did not prevail and I watched the chart BVP200 go from 13570 to 13580 as expected but I was flat long ago.

Day Eight


The story repeated itself on Day 8.

The chart of 6E below shows a block break to the upside but I was in early "anticipating" it and because I had no confirmation BVP115 I was out of breath and glad to exit as the market took off at the REAL entry point and I exited where I would have otherwise gotten in.

This flaw has now been presented twice in no uncertain terms (a benefit of journaling).
