UPDATE 5.17.22

I was sitting on my hands waiting for the FED. I ended up taking another trade.

What I did well:
1. I really like my entry point.
2. I actually waited for the second pullback, versus front running the first pullback!

what I did not do well:
1. sold at the 21 EMA, should have held much longer.

this is only 1 contract.

And today, I blew up my account...

I went to bed thinking the market needs to correct back down to the bottom.

How I blew up my account;

1. I was thinking short, but hit the buy one 1 contract button. I think thought to myself, why take a small loss, when I can average down :-)

2. I averaged in to like 65 contracts in MES..... LOL

3. I threw in the towel, and took the loss.

So from $5k to $1k.

What did I learn:

1. I don't have the discipline to trade.
2. I understand the concepts, but don't really apply them well.
3. I love the thought of trading. but the actual process of trading is not what I like.

What I was hoping for with trading:
1. I wanted to use trading as a way to make some extra cash to put into another business. aka grow my wealth quicker.

I lasted about 1 week, with futures.....
