Ok, this is interesting. I have completely fallen off the wagon here. It is almost like I am trading purposefully opposite of what market direction is. I am back to my old trading style! Disgusting!!!

Seriously, this is terrible. The move has really flustered me and I have come apart at the seams. Patience is really the problem here. Plus a bit of greed. I was seriously considering walking away with 300.00 but I decided to continue on. I want to get to the point where staying around isn't a bad thing.

This ends today. No excuses, just shite trading.

No emotions, I am beating myself up and not trading technically. Listening to my videos I am spending more time verbally abusing myself then focusing on setups. Interesting.

I am going into watch only mode on Monday. Time to right the ship.

IMHO...It's all in you're perspective again man. Your mind is being controlled by your sub-conscience, rather than the other way around. Mind over matter remember? You are in control, not you're evil twin. Nothing will change until you address that issue. The battle is with you're inner self....... concentrate on this and you will emerge triumphant. You have the technicals down pat. Mentalism is where you need to focus. You are sooooo close....I know you can feel it.

Haha.. I thought you were my family from Northern Missouri there for a bit.

Thanks Horst as always.

I agree, my wife has been laughing at me saying, "I have seen you do this a few times etc.."

Self-sabotage. My schedule should slow down a bit this next week and I will focus more on the mental side again.

What do you do to improve the mental side?

I'm rejecting the system based purely on his choice of music



This song by John Denver "Sweet Surrender" should have been named "The Traders Ballad" or "The Traders Journey". I have never been a big fan of Mr. Denvers, either, but he has hit a few out of the ballpark in his day. This in my opinion is one of them.

Listening to these words I believe describes the path followed but not necessarily understood by all who take this journey. Trading is 20% technical and 80% mental. Sweet "surrender" is the key ingredient to mental preparedness and understanding. Execution of thought beneficial to a successful trading attitude and mindset is most commonly overlooked in skills to be mastered. We must first be at peace within ourselves before we can be at peace with the market. The need to go with the flow, and give up the sub-conscience tendencies to take along excess baggage is crucial. Emotions such as greed, fear, ego, or anger on this journey does not suit us well. Once this mentalism is properly implemented, a whole new door opens and things are seen in a different light......carefree.......like a fish in the water...... like a bird in the air.

The words hit home and have special meaning to me. Listen to it again maybe you can understand where I am coming from.

Lost and alone on some forgotten highway,
Traveled by many, remembered by few.
Looking for something that I can believe in,
Looking for something that I'd like to do.
With my life.

Horst
