    • Review
      • Didn’t see my set­up so did not take any trades today.
    • How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket context?
      • Not too great. It looked like Hypo 1 was gonna play out but we didn’t BO. Prob­a­bly dur­ing NY ses­sion. The whole ses­sion we trad­ed in a range between 61.90 and 62.30
    • How well did I man­age my phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al and cog­ni­tive states?
      • I did well here.
    • What’s one thing you learned today?
      • If there’s no set­up don’t try and get involved anyway
    • What’s one thing I need to do more often?
      • Be patient.
    • What’s one thing I need to do less often?
      • Look for pat­terns to trade on the LTF. The TTF is my Trad­ing Time Frame.
