No trades today. My concentration always got distracted.

Trades in FESX

I acted against my rules today - I wanted to buy the support and sell the resistance...
instead, I bought a breakout and got stopped out.

Summary of the day


eboarder View Post
  • maximum risk: per trade $300, max $800 for the day, max 2 contracts
  • my psychological and physical state: I am feeling well, prepared for the trading day, today again there is lots of distraction going on
  • my goal for the day: only trading if I can concentrate/focus on the charts, I want to focus on the S/R levels, if the situation is clear on these points

I made one mistake and traded against my rules for today. I wanted to sell the resistance and buy the support, but I traded a breakout. (Afraid of missing a move...) and got stopped out, well that part is ok.

FGBL:
S/R were quite visible and prices stopped at each support.

FESX:
a little bit confusing, up and down moves, no direction

ES:
after the strong down move yesterday, very quiet today
hit clearly some S/R levels

6E:
made a new TOP for the period.

Lessons learned: I have to stick to my S/R levels and try not to enter breackout trades, since I have no statistics collected for breakouts
