11.11.16 like clock work

as it is friday and i don't trade as much i just put in 1 trade on a seemingly strong support in a range and called it a day at 4 points. i didn't even have to draw any trend lines cause i drew these the other day day things just worked very well

11.14.16


bad day today. negative 412.50 it did exactly what i thought it would do bounce in a range and then break lower. but i never got a good entry and was too hesitant to enter the ones i saw i was gonna quit at negative 200 but then i tried to win it back which was very stupid.

Self analysis

Futures Edge on FIO
Im a beginner trader and a stubborn person. not a good combination lol. I am at a point now where when i am trading well i constantly ask my self questions, is this trade worth the risk, whats the market doing, how much pressure is on the up/down side, is my stop in a safe position without having an overly large risk, should i get out of this trade because the time or movements are not what i anticipated, should i cut my losses. i think that is what FT 71 always talks about in terms of conscious competence stage 3? My biggest weakness today was that i let myself fall back into an impulsive gambling trader who became oblivious to what i saw right in front of me. i started off the day with 2 winning trades and 1 loss and i was standing at 112 pnl, but i quickly gave it all back. As i started to lose my methodology and ,y careful habits ive spent so long building begin to fade away and i become more and more reckless. I begin to trade my PnL saying i can make it back just one more trade if i lose i'm done one more and im done one more and im done. then i walk away come back and i am disgusted by what just happened. X.X BUT i am still a beginner trader and i feel i am still getting better and better. before i made this journal it was even worse even though i was recording my days in my own personal journal. i use to just blow up my account in a single hour haha. Now looking on the bright side im glad that the worst of me will only take out 2 days of trader rather than my entire combine. this is a long post and there is a lack of grammar or proper spacing but id like to say thanks to the futures.io bmt community i don't post much and i am still new but i spend so much time browsing the forums reading journals even reading journals from 3 years ago haha and all the webinars and market commentary that i see is a great help and the elite membership is probably the best money ive spent since i started trading.

11.15.16

wow todays an early day for me i cant really find an advantage today and after yesterday i just wanna put in a small good day. i ended up 187 -30 for commission. i could have held and made a decent profit, but im not experienced enough for holding trades haha. Whenever i feel pressured to get out early it continues, but whenever i sit on my hands and let it run it comes back and stops me out. Today seeemed pretty simple with a channel higher off of my largest EMA but hindsight is always 20/20 right?
