Two wins. $1.99
I'm fully aware that my wins lately have been so small that one medium size loss wipes out my profits. My ability to pull the trigger and execute the trades I see has been a problem for me the past couple months. Right now I'm happy that I'm taking trades. One step at a time.
I'm going to be busy with family and then traveling back home over the next 4 days. I'll be back to trading on Tuesday.
Today was a decent day. 2 trades both winners. Both trades were seeing if we were gonna get pushes to new highs/lows. Neither trade popped very far in my favor and my instinct was to take profit quickly. On a different day with slightly different price action leading up to my trades I would have been more patient. Tomorrow its 50/50 whether or not I'll be able to place any trades because I'll be traveling during the session but I may be able to do something during London hours. We'll see.
Today was 100% better than yesterday because I actually took a trade. However I took a market order trade. It was an impulse trade and it didn't meet any of the requirements I look for in a trade what-so-ever. The reason I took a trade on impulse is because I'm having a difficult time not letting the results of specific trades affect my mindset. Therefore I started today's session with the improper mindset that I'm going to take a lot of trades no matter what. What I need to do is take allot of trades.... but have them be trades that meet my requirements. 95% of the time that means I'm executing limit orders and not impulse market orders.
Believe it or not I've come a long way in my trading. From losing money hand over fist to where I'm at today; Not really losing money.... but not really making money either. I'm looking to turn the corner and never look back. It's been a long time coming with allot of ups and downs. Unfortunately, mostly downs until now. I feel and think I'm really close to taking the final steps that will enable me to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
