Well, yeah, yeah just yeah!!

I nearly took the trande off the 9760 level, switched on 4 mins to late, thought get in near the low range and that never came

Then I got in, near the 100ema 9825, worried too much took +3 and see I coulda taken +25 max


A week of no trades = 1 week to get head back into game, business needs to be closed!!

Better, taking trades and managing them.


Shirted DAX went higher shorted again as per plan, held longer got +12 but got shuck out 1min later +26 which woulda been a lot more worth it.

Trend had turned up so was looking for soft exit shoulda waited for first lower white range doh!

WILD Day, to be honest I don't like wild days, wayyyy to fast for me.


Odd I'm taking the first trade I see of the day, but that's it then, I see others but worry to much about losing, need to focus on the it will most likely profit.


Never focus on the losses people!


But hey, will descramble brain / force self to stop being a such a big cry baby wuss!!

No method issues, or reason to even look at charts currently.


Issues are :-


1. Place a trade, profit, walk away smiling at my slightly higher account value ( I'm generally POOR so it's a lot to me LOL ) and ofcourse stop trading, need to keep trading.

2. Seeing a setup and just not taking it, despite the odds being it'll work out fine 70-80% of the time.


Solve those and I see no reason, why I can't average 60pips per day, 4 days per week, days like friday and can do that in 1 or 2 trades easy.


Got Monday am and rest of the week so far, to start hitting my target!!

Take the damn trade, assess / manage the trade, if I don't take it, then it's just too late most of the time, the exactly the same issue again of taking the risk on the next trade.
