Now its time for preparation of the afternoon session (german time)

Lessons learn from this morning: my stops were a few ticks to close, and I pushed the stop too fast to break even.
I have to give it more time
  • maximum risk: per trade $200, max $600 for the day
  • my psychological and physical state: still feeling good
  • my goal for the day, that I try to achieve: I only want to enter a trade when the situation is clear
DAX and FESX were looking strong this morning, Bund Future a bit week, turning aroung the open.

  • Performance: small profit, one trade worked out very well ( Opening Strategy ES)
  • I have to give the trades a little bit more time to develop and don't set the stop too early on break even.
