This journal will document my trades during a roughly 2-hour window in the U.S. morning. I'm starting on sim, moving up slowly. I'm hoping the public journal will keep a record, keep me disciplined, and allow some reflection. I'm not sure if this will last long, as I've been doing mainly swing trades over the last months. But, I always seemed drawn back into the morning market.
SIM #1: NG for +8 ticks
watched a few FDAX moves, but can't even SIM them since I'm not setup to trade that market yet. if I could have gotten into those I would have gained on 2, and lost on one... maybe a total of +19 ticks.
SIM #1: breakeven on CL, should have have been a loss but entered wrong and got out.
SIM #2: +10 on ZM
SIM #3: -2 on ZS, trying to scratch
semi-watched 2 FDAX moves that would have been significant losses... also fumbled the entry on ZM that should have been +6. This day would have been a down day if I had traded everything I was watching.
Overall, I'm uneasy. Maybe I'll sim another day... maybe I don't have what it takes for this style of trading. Maybe I just need to start with just 1 trade per day, or only 1 hour instead of 2, or fewer markets, or ???
