Trade #5 reveals a lot. Look at your MFE. What was your target? Were you trying to make up all your losses in one trade? What did your plan call for? Did you follow your plan?

And most importantly, if you did not follow your plan, then what specific steps will you take on Monday and next week to make certain that going forward you are going to follow your plan? Be as specific as possible.



Good job with the journal.

Have a good weekend,
Mike

Hey Mike,

Plan was to short the LVN as i was following the breakdown from the vpoc (wwanted about f buyers could hold above that lvn). was in and it went about 2 pts or so in favour and i had my first target at about 2.5pts. i was aware of demand continually coming in off of that lvn and so once it came back to my entry and got at/above that lvn i saw that buyers were able to grip the ask and so i bailed. my target was the IBL for the second car. turned out that the idea worked out but i think it was mainly because of the volatility today that i got out fo that trade. it will go in my favor, i'll see the opposite force coming in and able to hold the market, but then instantly it is at the extreme and then instantly it's not. barely anything is taking it up and barely anything is shooting it down... that's hard to trade.

plan:

expecting 53.75 where Id expect responsive sellers on first test, then 61.25, where Id expect responsive sellers on first test (how far sellers are able to take price off of this zone is important). expecting responsive buyers on first test of 27s. below 27, sellers are in control in the short-term and Im expecting a test of 15.5-14, where Id expect responsive buyers on first test. expecting responsive buyers to be active on first test of 37-35. above 40, the bigger pic is looking a lot more bullish and 1207.75 could be tested and then broken above eventually. below 1114, 96-94 is expected with buyers expected to be active on first test.

nothing wrong with the method.

things that were wrong with me today: a couple trades were revenge/anger trades, missed about 3 or four trades, took myself out of a couple of trades for no reason only to have them go in my favor for at-least 1 scale, 2 trades were not logical.

Sorry you had a bad day.

If I might suggest, be sure you are documenting the "took myself out of a couple of trades for no reason" type stuff. You need to write it down so you can see a pattern which is almost certainly not clear to you otherwise.

Good job posting on a bad day. Just make sure you are learning from it What steps will you take tomorrow regarding the "things that were wrong with me today" ?

No more being afraid to trade.... no matter what - NO MATTER WHAT. focus and stay objective - don't see what i want to see but what is happening.

max loss per day is set at $400 now. i need this in place to stop myself from trading on days when it just isn't working - me or the market.

i'll post my PNL no matter what happens. i'm all about transparency. i'm building this method and documenting it here because i'd like newbs to have a free, PROVEN foundation with which to start.
