How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket context?

Hypo2 — 100% after Hypo1 play­ing out (70%) dur­ing AS

I exe­cut­ed the trade based on my hypo that was derived from my week­ly trad­ing plan. 

How well did I fol­low my process?

Based on my own process I feel like I did well. How­ev­er, I was point­ed out by my men­tor on a few things that I need to be work­ing on if I want to achieve good results. Since my way of think­ing has led me to fail con­sis­tent­ly in trad­ing and to seek out a men­tor it is valid to say that her advice super­sedes my own approach. Her feed­back makes total sense and I will do my part to incor­po­rate this into my trad­ing. Points taken:

  1. If I have an entry based on exten­sive research I set a con­trolled risk on a trade I should either leave it to hit my tar­gets (TP or SL) or to expire based on time-based SL.
  2. I have to focus on per­cent­age consistency
    1. 1% risk per trade. 2 trades max per day (2% max loss)
    2. 7% week­ly loss. If I have 7 loss­es in a row in a week, I will stop, revise and then come back the fol­low­ing week. 
    3. Only take trades with a max. SL of 25 pips for USDCAD
  3. No going in after I have exit­ed or tak­en a loss for at least 1 hour

Fur­ther­more, research more about the Kel­ly criterion

How well did I man­age my phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al and cog­ni­tive states?

I did well here. Had a light meal. 

What’s one thing you learned today?

I have to let trades devel­op based on HARD rules to let them work out their edge. When I take a trade prop­er­ly, it means I have already done the research based on my para­me­ters so I should let my plan trade out. Either hit tar­get or take myself out based on time.

What’s one thing I need to do more often?

Take my tar­get either time-based or SL/TP.

What’s one thing I need to do less often?

Be impul­sive and micro-man­age my position.
