2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

Call it a day


Quick clarification trade. Perfect price, and location, with good expectation... Could have hold it longer, but the goal was to clarify my day. Maybe because of the commission it is in red, but I do not care...

Trading with ease

I was not journaling a lot in the past few days. I am still shaping my market theory, and I am getting more and more clarity about it. I am started to identify trades as an opportunity and not as winning trade. The opportunity means for me a possible good trade, which could be fail, and not a sure scenario which will be work. I have been also started to focusing only for the NQ instead of the YM. NQ seems to be moving more volotay than the YM, which makes me happy.

Anyhow, here is an example: On friday, my theory was we are going to go back to the Y-Close area, but there was no strong indication on higher timeframes about it. On the otherside there was no signal about we are going to drop in the near future, the picture was more likely about that we are going to ranging. It was friday (oke there were many news around it) so I was not expecting a huge drop. Anyhow, the plan was that to catch the trade up. I made some scratch trade, the first one was obviusly a big error, but the other ones like if it goes, than it goes, if it is not, than I dont care and I will scratch it with breakeven.

Than the market was started to falling down. Because in my mind the expectation was that, we are going to go up, it made me happy, and I was w8 the location and the priceaction to turn. We did not hit the location, so I did not entered with the priceaction immidieatly to go up. Than I realized the following thing:
- We can go up from here, that is for sure. We were close enough to my level to drop, so there is no way for me to decied are we going to drop further or not
- If we are continiue to dropping, than I have to wait a deep pullback anyway, which is still a scenario to go long
- If I not right, and we are going to drop till my area, than I will make a gift, and enter again. Who am I to decied what the market will do, and how to do it.

So I entered long, on a small pullback, and made my day. My mind this trade was an opportunity to execute my plan, and also I was aware of that I am risking some money to buy with a good price, but also have the option to fail:
(yellow box, missed opportunity to get better price, red box wrong entry, green boxes scratch trades....)

(funny story, this runup was only a pullback for a huge drop, but I did not care about it, later on the weekend, I have identified a lots of spots, to go long, than short as the market fall down, which made me happy to see how the market structure and bias is changing...)

Now you can say that, I was reckless, and there is no way I would go long again. Here is another trade from thursday. The market was hitting new highs, and on the higer timeframes the picture was changing. Ofc you never ever know in these kind of situation, and it is bottom/top fishing, but this is what it is... So based on the picture, we have been hit my area of intrest, with a very weak way, so I entered short. My plan was the same, if we are going down, I do not want to miss it. I made a gift, there was a quick breakout and we made a new high. Because my bias was short, and the breakout was very-very quick I have been entered again. As an opportunity, and not as a for sure situation. Ofc this picture could be easly failed also, but also gave me a huge win because of the failed breakout. So as an opportunity after the priceaction it was great. As a possibility to work or not, I am not the guy who can tell you how good was it. Good enough for me
(orange gift, green good trade, blue box option to move away the stop, but I already moved it away 2 times, so I chickened out for a 3. time)

So my point is here, my mind is shaping to see these opportunities, and w8 sometimes more sometimes less confirmation. What I am searching for is the possible nice picture. Because anytime anything could happen, but over and over again the market is doing a same thing. I do not know when, and how, but I do know when I have the chance to see something nice.

Ofc I am still making huge errors. Sometimes. These errors are less and less, and I am getting more and more patient, and beliefe about that sooner or later I will see something nice to enter, and I do not have to enter all the time... But it takes time...
