A Better Trading Day: Update 1

Today I was committed to adhering to my rules and trading what the market was willing to give, without risking too much of my profit. As I type this, the market is rising past my previous exit, but that is ok. I'd rather take pride in trading well for a profit on a consistent basis than trying to squeeze every drop of juice out of the market. We all know how over trading can turn a profit into a huge loss.

Better trading ahead!

Update: 


A huge up day, it would be easy to say that I left a lot of points on the table. As a professional trader, the emotion of regret is a what causes over trading, giving back losses, in exchange for a massive loss. Unfortunate for the traders who bought the YM at a high and were stuck in their position hoping for it to reach a new high, I easily could have been stuck in a trade/loss if I would have jumped back into the market.


Better trading ahead!

Trading Results YM/NQ

As I post this, the market is still falling, but I am committed today to not over trading. No such thing as money left on the table, your money is what you have left when you walk away from the table.

NQ $352 YM -$206
Total $146

Lost on the YM trade with few regrets. I was trying to short at S1, the price was bouncing around to the point my very generous stop was hit for a loss.

The NQ trade which kept going without me worked well, maybe if I didn't have the earlier loss I would have stayed in the trade longer?
