Yesterday i violated basic rule. My girlfriend call me, so i pick up. During the calling i noticed, that appeared setup trigger (on basis micro analysis, micro analysis is focused on inside structure of trigger). So i made entry, without macro analysis (macro analysis is focused on trend and market condition). So, i violated these rules:

Trading during the call (in trading plan it is basic rule) = not completely focused on market.
I didnt watch macro analysis of market.

Yesterday, I was really pissed off on myself. Not because the lost, but because i violated basic rules...

Otherwise, i think that I wouldnt make any trade, because market was choppy.

Our faults call experiences...

Results:

SL: -$45

Total: $0

Today, no trade.

Ideas that challenged me while watching the market:

20:22 The market for the last few days is still moving sideways. I'm thinking about changing the system. But I realize that I need in each one the trend, I earned. I hope my thoughts will no longer such a challenge.

20:36 I received a potentially valid signal, but I had doubts about the trend.
21:04 created is a valid signal, I entered the order, but I have not been filled according to plan.
21:15 Another valid signal, but I had doubts about the trend.

For the "doubts" trades, you should definitely check out Bacon's Decision Matrix, it is a great tool.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Yesterday I have made 1 win trade, with 60 USD.

Ideas that came to mind during trading session:

20:06 Looks like another choppy day.
20:11 The market is located at EMA 21
20:38 The market is still in the chop. I listen to music that helps me to concentrate more in this (choppy) market.
20:43 The market draws a triangle, expect a move.
20:52 Break out the triangle.
21:01 possible entry, the point 2 and point 3 are on the same candle = no valid signal.
21:14 Valid signal entry long. No doubt the signal.

Today I made a trade with a loss of USD 30.

Thoughts in the trading:

20:02 The market made a big move up and then it corrected to EMA21 and little while ago made a new high doji candle. This situation is dangerous - often makes it the chop.

20:06 The market made a strong decline, breaking the previous low. The market seems to live. Waiting for confirmation of a trend.

20:26 The market went into the chop.

20:41 The market fall again performed and created a downward channel. However it didnt brake previous low, and did the DB.

20:51 Enter short with valid signal.

21:00 Hit a stop-loss. Trade didnt develop from the beginning as I expected.

21:07 The market went into the chop.

The business plan I've added the rule that if the signal appears DB / DT, so do not take it.
