I followed my rules and today it just was a little akward for me and my brain couldn't figure out the patterns. The only trade that I 'regret' is the short at support which I knew going into it. I figured if it broke that support that I would have a nice trade. It cost me 3 ticks, so the R:R was pretty good.

Very very frustrated....

Entries: F

Trade Management: A

My wife was having issues with logging into CQG, and the AMP support recommended uninstalling EVERYTHING before proceeding. Come to find out that the demo account was bad! ouch...

She isn't as 'savvy' so I stepped in while trading a very up up up market. Tried to hit the short and missed it over and over again.

Something I realized about my trading is that like today I had no idea why it went crushing down where it did. However, had I had just a 1 point stop (nice wedge formed) then I would have caught the whole enchilada). (It was close to resistance point of wedge, but was expecting a little more 'north')

Changes are coming to my trading, but must get some free time to really focus and study and implement.

Just doing some testing and playing today. Ended up BE, but playing with some different ideas.

It has been a nice break the last few days. My alarm didn't wake me up today, but most importantly I didn't feel a 'need' to trade. I was wondering when that would be....

For the first time ever I don't feel like trading. Interesting.

Chopped up mess today, but was managing pretty well. Did Market Replay of yesterdays market (yesterday) and found it to be a bit challenging for myself.

Feeling a bit uninspired lately. Would like to find my mojo again...

Nope. It is funny. Today I went back to sleep and normally after I hit snooze I wake up 5 minutes later, but the trading gods sent me to sleep for another 39 minutes and due to my son being up all night with sickness I had nice glazed eyes and decided that I would 'play' around with CL today. Wow, it was tough with large stops but I guessed the general direction right. I just took a peek at the TF and boy... Days like this are hellish... That is if you are over-aggressive... I would have been jumping on long's I think, but would have gotten a bit disgruntled....

Tough day mentally for me. I could not get comfortable with the way it was moving and considering yesterday I figured I should count my blessings.

My only regret is taking the trade down to my target. I got 'jiggled' out mentally and that is not good, but I am satisfied with my day.
