Love the transparency, which I believe makes us such better traders (people too)
I just heard this morning on a podcast from Rande Howell, these words... "When did beating yourself up over trading results ever contribute to a positive outcome?" Then he went on to talk about treating mistakes as road signs that show us where we need to go. So if we are open to looking for them, we will see where we need to go.
I haven't had time to review your whole journal, but I heard your interview and I have to say from where you have come to where you are today is an encouragement for all of us in a similar journey. You will get to that goal... then you will establish another higher goal, and work on getting there too.
Keep it up!
The following 5 users say Thank You to Yukoner for this post:
@montanajtt : Thank you, you are absolutly right. The bests trades ever, what I take on a valid signal, at the valid time, and getting the valid results. All the trades what I don't take at a good spot time signal are usually a looser. The game is here to prove your brain over and over again, you will be the winner at the end. You can overcome your feeling emotions etc, and you can succeed.
In the beginning I do remember, one day. It was +350USD winner. Than I sat back to the computer and made it -600USD. Than I sat back again, and it become -1100USD. What I told in the beginning is still true. In one hand you can be quick, but on the other hand you have to prove it to yourself, you can do it for BE as well, if the market moves in a good manner. But all these things comes with a
@Yukoner : Thank you. It is important to know everybody is difference. To write a journal like this, and share things with others always come with a character as well. For me it is not too hard to share my feelings, and put it into words, others maybe it is harder. Writing a journal has to be a good thing for you, and a disciplined one. You have to do it in some level (my journal is very very sloppy, I am not checking my blood pressure, my feelings to take the trade, only taking it and that's all. I have some routine to do, but it is before trading, and not during trading) But I try to be always very open when I am putting it into words...
So Yes, writing a journal is a good thing, and a step from many of others, which teach you to follow things, what you did not follow in the past And hey, this is what trading is about. Try to act like never did before to be a winner on the market
Dear all! I hate to ask things but this is about my sister dream and not a big deal just one vote. She loves dogs and hate cold but she would like to win this competition in Hungary. We both know it is not about who is to cutest it is about who share more this thing so I would appropriate your vote to her if it is not to big thing to ask http://www.fjallravenpolar.com/show-all-contributions/?fbid=1290667486
I will skip these days for real till I am not allow to hold through news... News at 8:45, and 9:00. The methodology is the following. The market was dropped badly, so it will go back up. If bad news coming already dropped a lot, so it will be not a huge impact, but if good news is coming it is a winner.
But because I am a junior trader, I am not allow to hold trades over news... So this is what it is...
Anyhow, I managed 100USD, Simply I was not in the mood to hold a trade, after I already read the market right twice...
So this is what it is A good green day. And it is my last day. So tomorrow I will make a 10 days report. Almost reached 1K USD, which is not bad (converting it to 7 lots it is 3.5K USD a bit below of my performance of the combine, but consistency is still there, so I don't care )
Also made 2 days (a big looser) and a small winner because of the news, but once again. NO COMPLAIN just facts!
Have a great day all to you

PS - edit: My exit was meaningful. We have been closed the GAP. Only error was here, I was thinking for go long for a second, than I call it a day in my mind, because there was no strong support arena. Anyway. This is what it is A good day! And a good exit from a weak pullback, which has been spotted and I gave up the position with discipline...
