So happy for you, I also see you much more relaxed in what you are doing, you take the good and the bad at the same way and this itself shows how you grew up! Great job today, your trade was less easy to take then you described

Mine is similar.

Your landscape and view a bit better than mine. Also you are pushing it more. During summertime I tend to run 7-8km as well. But I have been realized, I was getting tired for the afternoon session. From weightloss point of view it was a huge. In 3 month I have been lost 15 kg, but from trading perspective it was not profitable. So I am concentrating for a good run, try to do it every day, before trading - if I am not running at least go for a good walk Consistency here and in trading is the same thing for me.
But I am super-jealous for the landscape

No time for trade today

Sorry guys. No time for trade today. Did not even meditate. We have workers at home, they are changing our windows, to do not get freezed out during winter time.

Missed a nice entry, missed my 25 tick profit, so got out. Market is smelly for me for a drop, dont want to overpush it... Sorry to dont see a nice clean disciplined trade. This is what it is...

Hm. We have been dropped like a rock yesterday (250 tick or something like that...). Oke oke not after this one, after the next one... But my sense was at the right place at the right time...

Missed the runup, but made my day

I missed the runup, got out to early, was not fast enough and brave enough to move away may profit target. I was happy with a green dom, even if I would know where we are heading. Anyhow, clean and nice day. Should have been played a bit better, but I am oke with it. You can call it, ah it is crazy, ah it is rollover, we are after a drop bla bla bla... Yes all true, but the entries are entries, and the market moves are market moves. So missing this runup, was costy for me, (200 USD at least) but building the confident, and reading right, and reenter long is more benefitial, than anything else! Consistency every day, is killing any kind off big fish hunting. I will be there. I told you, ONLY THE TIME IS THE FACTOR!

I believe the greatness is trading comes with time, but thank you.
About books: I do not have good answer for this. In the begining I was trying to believe it is good to read books, but for me did not played out well. We are all different, and based on this everyone has to find his own best thing to do. What I love about books to read is the ideas, and not the solution. I am giving you an example:
Reading Van Tharp till he is giving you an idea about the R, and other thing is good. I am not using them as it described in the book, but I do aware of that, what is it used for, so I tailored the information to my use. But, reading for 300 hundred pages about this concept is get me tired.
Otherwise, reading market wizards Jack D. Schwager is a great pleasure for me, even if he is not giving any solution, but highlighting a lots of interesting view and thinking around the market. So for me is reading books is to get experience from others, and not solutions.

This is the main reason, I am trying to not read trading related books, or listen podcast, I am trying to read, and listen other stuffs, ideas, stories to keep my brain thinking and processing information, and not to get solutions from others.
