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!

Getting there, definitely getting there, account at new highs looking good


Work . I made more in 15mins of watching a trade, really struggling with still working here.

10k account = quit I think, 3k to go.

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.
