Big Loss

Real trading, real losses. Over trading in chop is a great example of what not to do... your welcome.

Better trading ahead!

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!













Missed Big Opportunity

Traded today's big down day too fast, will wait till next week to trade again. These are the kind of days a trend trader needs to take full advantage of.

Better trading ahead.

Committed to trading well today. 1st trade I kept a tight profit stop, 2nd trade I allowed the trade to work in my favor until it broke previous support (S1) and hit my profit stop.

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?





ES/YM Trading Results

ES -$295 YM -$127
Total-$422

Everybody's got plans... until they get hit.

Better trading tomorrow.
