Mindfulness is critical in trading, especially day trading.
Other mental issues like those you mention can also be a complete block on trading, and in my experience are often fueled by limiting subconscious beliefs.

Many traders are frustrated with such issues but make the mistake of thinking they will "eventually go away" after enought time and pain.
That's rarely the case, because of two basic issues:
a. Most untrained people lack the skills and proper tools to deal with this stuff. The right tools can make the difference between a few sessions, or a few years. Took me a long time before running into the tools that evetually helped me dig myself out of a similar hole, and get on track on the mental aspect of trading.
b. I'ts very difficult to to work on these things alone - like rescuing yourself when drowning. Even today, as a skilled and trained subconscious facilitator, I sometimes find it useful to work on such issues when I meet them, with another trained person.
The good news - it is completely workable, and breakthrough is possible.
I Wish you success on this endeavor.

Learning about price pattern geometry, Crude March contract has a potential "M" shape pattern.
This could initiate more selling next week.
I'm short from 56.72, five contracts
didn't workout / -20 tick stoploss filled instead

120m CL
