Thanks to @tradermark2009 for this post which he did some time ago. I have struggled with accepting losses are a part of trading and have subconsciously been trying for years to develop that perfect system that had no losses. At least I am aware at this point this is one of my tendencies and try to catch myself. I thought this post was important enough for me to post in my own journal.. Thanks again @tradermark2009 .
NQ Again today.. Not comfortable trading it yet.. Jumps around a lot and created some anxiety not felt with ES... Small stops harder to come by in higher volatility. Of course , after I was finished , volatility dropped off as expected..
Counting commissions, was a scratch day on a big up day.
Back to ES tomorrow...........
