There are some days when trading is the easiest thing in the world. This wasn't one of those days. And the shame of it was that I missed an easy +10 pip trade right at the beginning of the day (technically a few minutes before my trading day). If I had a pip for every time that happened to me I'd be a very rich man indeed.
At the end I held on to my patience pretty well. I could have exited the 2nd to last trade just a bit faster. But I admit, digging ditches was starting to break my back. Overall, I can't complain: +9.4 pips for the day. But it sure wasn't fun.
