Today was my worst trading day in the last two weeks, not because i loss, but because i failed to follow my very basic rules. First i was trading in the pre-market which is not in my plan and of course it was a lossing trade then i told myself that all i needed to do was get to b/e before the open so 2 more trades 2 more losers so now i down nice but no panic i got up and left the room and did not return until the open of GC. So i'm calm all i need is a signal so wait and boom it's long i'm in +26 ticks on 2 cont so i'm almost b/e 2 more trades 2 more wins CL, and TF done for the day with 751.00 usd but i still want say that this is not how i should be trading. CONSISTENCY IN DISCIPLINE is going to make me a better trader yes i made some profit my acct won today but my quest to be better well let's calln this a minor set back.
