Yes Dai­ly review

Mup­pet meter (1 being best — 5 being worst): 1

Sum­ma­ry: Mean Reversion

  • Lon­don open below val­ue, M15 bull engulf, IB exten­sion up on high momen­tum,  AS exhaust­ed, ADR 87%, H4 inside bar in demand
    • Long entry 1.96692 SL 1.96452 TP 1.97098
    • Took prof­its 1.1R at 1.96910

How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket context?

  • Did well here

How did I feel before, dur­ing, and after the trade?

  • I felt good before the trade already stalk­ing my poten­tial trade and then act­ing on it
  • The trade didn’t last that long and I took 1.1R even though it would have hit 2R. Decid­ed to take the win for my DD
  • After­wards, I assessed if I had a bet­ter entry oppor­tu­ni­ty but I was point­ed out that on momen­tum we can’t be too picky

How well did I fol­low my process?

  • Did a great job today

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

  • Great!

What did I learn today?

  • I learned that it is more prob­a­ble for a rever­sal to mean with AS being exhaust­ed and ADR already at 87%. This com­bined with a bull engulf and high momen­tum extend­ing over IB. Mean rever­sion setups usu­al­ly ini­ti­ate on high­er momen­tum. And it is okay to not have the ‘best’ entry (even though my entry was pret­ty spot on) in these situations.

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

  •  Trade what is in front of me

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

  • I did well today. No critique.
