This certainly has been an interesting week. I started off on Monday on the wrong foot, but quickly got back to the swing of things on Tuesday. On Tuesday I started visualizing my goal of making $300 for the week. Thursday was amazingly volatile as we saw the Euro strengthen. And Friday has been a good wrap up to the week.
I admit, that I am posting early on Friday. Why? I've made my goal and then some, and I've lost a fair amount of focus. Two things I need to do next week: 1) setup a qualitative spreadsheet of how the market day is setting up and how I feel (similar to Don Miller's spreadsheet, 2) I need to set a higher dollar goal for next week.
Today was +15 (ok I took a second trade at 1 cent per pip that made another +15).
For the week +87 pips and $455.55. The weekly goal was $300. I will be revising my goals over the weekend and will need to step things up a bit. Perhaps my 4 week goal should be closer to $750 a week.
