Actu­al Development

  • D closed low­er with­in IB, E took out my SL
  • F trad­ed high­er before revers­ing again

Good points

  • Tak­ing my stop
  • Sat here observ­ing with­out much emotion
  • Direc­tion­al­ly right on the day, just lousy exe­cu­tion and not wait­ing for the set­up to present itself

Bad Points

  • Price had not closed above IB as per Hypo 2 — Late-Sus­tained Auction
  • M30 Bear Engulf even though weak it failed the auction
  • M15 Con­sol­i­da­tion and break down still in the way for any long thesis
  • No good prof­it tar­get with more con­ges­tion in the way
  • SL tighter than ASR Short which is not the worst as it was based on M5 entry but if it was slight­ly wider I could’ve scratched the trade
  • Weak M5 price pat­tern for entry
  • I was feel­ing tired or as I like to call it “wear­ing horse blind­ers”. I have been sleep­ing well but still felt off. I then real­ized it was a with­draw­al from the sleep­ing med­ica­tion I was tak­ing and quit cold turkey. The nootrop­ics stack has been work­ing so well that I did not have the need to take them and I just abrupt­ly stopped tak­ing them. Because of this I will take the rest of the week off and reeval­u­ate Monday. 
  • Could I have pre­vent­ed this? Yeah, I should’ve been more cog­nizant of the fact that I was com­ing off of the meds. In hind­sight I feel the same way when I did the Keto diet very wrong­ly as well as quit smok­ing at the same time. Luck­i­ly we have good risk man­age­ment rules in place: If I have 3–4 trades hit­ting full stop it is a big red flag. Some­thing is up. I usu­al­ly have good trades so when­ev­er this hap­pens I need to reeva­lute. Is there some­thing wrong with me or has the mar­ket regime changed and do I need to reassess my approach to the mar­kets? Les­son learned.
