So a couple of things. First, I did really well with taking most all of my signals. Second, I missed the best winning signal of the day (would have been good for +15). Lastly, I didn't keep my cool on the second to last trade and sat through a 22 pip drawdown. Yep, that's $%&! trading right there in a nut shell. I didn't get burned today but that doesn't mean squat. I coulda got out at -6 pips.
Losers average losers.
Overall -1.3 pips. Yeah no biggie, except I surrendered +23 pips to the market by failing to take 2 trades. Stupid, huh?
On the plus side, I am starting to get over my fear of trading. Yep, I'm convinced, I'm a afraid to trade at the moment. Gotta chip away at that. I'm a good person, I deserve to trade. Must keep telling myself that...
