YM 2/19/16: Update

Win or lose, will update results later today after trade is closed.

As promised, an update with results. Almost, should've could've would've is not conducive to long term success. I made a trade I felt good about, it did not work, simple as that. 20/20 hindsight analysis means very little. If the trade "would've" worked, I would only be patting myself on the back as I marveled in my technical analysis. On to the next trade, enjoy the weekend!

I only want to be aware of where price has been in preparation to trade well when the market is ready to move. In the business of trading for a living, we have to avoid becoming emotionally attached to a prediction.

It's beneficial to know that the market may move on the news of either positive or negative CPI data.

Happy Presidents Day 2016

How are you spending your non trading day? Maybe you are reflecting on our founding father's  principles they left behind that made the USA what it is today? Or are you just getting your mind ready for the trading week ahead?
