Rough ride

I started of with some bad trades (SIM)
and quickly got myself into trouble, cumulating a few bad trades

at the end I ended up into a bad corner
and my husband @rleplae had to pull me out with his advice/guidance (he has other tools, are they better ?)

finished the day positive, but it shows how i can quickly get myself into trouble
trying to go to a too short timeframe,
loosing the bigger picture

I over traded, I took too much risk
I need to be more patient and wait for quality setupq

I am happy to journal, it helps me to analyse better daily
it forces me to be critical on my actions

journalling

Hi Ruth,

great job journaling. Its should really help to see where you can make improvements. Although I've been journaling for a while, I have only just started to put it on futures.io (formerly BMT). I hope you'll overcome the issues and become a profitable trader.

Don't let money control you, control money!

Hi,

I don't understand the question , i'm not a technical person, i have Median Renko on the Wizards Den template. It comes from futures.io (formerly BMT). If you want more explanations please ask to my husband @rleplae. I'm using tools that he installed for me.

Thanks

Ruth

Summary up to 7Th October 2014


Today i make a summary, i made a few very good trades and a lot of bad trades.
The bad trades, i know my failures...
I have the good tools but i'm missing the bigger picture.
How can i see the bigger picture ?
Often if i talk with my husband @rleplae, he can talk about the context and the bigger picture ... i can not :-(
I don't know if it's me or the tools we are using. We don't use the same .
I was a little bit lost and lost courrage.
I finished the day POSITIVE with 160,00Usd but .... over traded.
If i look at the seven days i'm positive but.... could be better and.... i'm not really a good trader, yet.
I send you the grafics
