I somehow managed to have a day with one trade and a 15 tick profit. I held through the news because I felt like I had some breathing room and it worked out for me. A bit of luck, but I'm happy that I was patient on a day that could have really chopped me up.

Worst stop ever. I didn't realize I had my stop put at the 50% retracement of the upmove. I got stopped out and took +6 ticks missing out on an awesome 16+ tick winner. So disappointed.

Fun action today with lots of swings the morning before FOMC. Ended the day down two ticks.

Missed the initial move, and was unable to find my rhythm. Nothing too dramatic though. Total profit: -4 ticks.

Nonfarms resulted in some great swings. Had a few false starts, but ended with a good profit that takes my account back to its highs. Total Profit: 9 ticks

Don't watch today's video. I do really poorly, and it is embarrassing. I knew what was going on and I still tried fading. I was just not in my right mind. In the future I need to identify this sooner and quit for the day. I also think this and some of my other bad trades are due to permafading so I'll be looking for ways to combat that.

Simplified things a little and changed my workspace. Bad day to do it though as action was super slow.

Another tight range day. I still took too many trades, but I learned a lot today about the right spots to enter in ranges. Finally got a good winner at the end. I feel like I made some progress today. Ended the day +1 tick.
