Sum­ma­ry: Process. Patience. Persistence. 

Every trad­ing day I recap my trades, includ­ing more than entries and exits. Why did I take the trade? How did I man­age the trade, my emo­tions and cog­ni­tive func­tion? All the good stuff as well as all the ugly of being a day trad­er. As always, feel free to reach out to me. 

My week­ly goal

Have cor­rect SL place­ment and thus posi­tion sized accordingly.

Bad Pre-mar­ket routines

Good Ses­sion PECS

Good Trade selec­tion

Good Trade siz­ing or SL placement

Good Trade Exe­cu­tion & Mgmt.

Good Risk Adjust­ed Returns

Yes Dai­ly review

Mup­pet meter (1 being best — 5 being worst): 2

Week­ly Goal Achieve­ment: Have cor­rect SL place­ment and sizing

  • Did not take any trades today due to rea­son out­lined below

How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket context?

  • I did well here

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

  • No trades tak­en today

How well did I fol­low my process?

  • I did not write my pre­mar­ket prep because I didn’t think I was going to trade today. Which I didn’t. 

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

  • I thought I was going to be less focused but sur­pris­ing­ly did okay today. The rea­son for not trad­ing today is because I lacked sleep for two days in a row and after­wards I rarely per­form well to say the least. Hence my rule to not trade then. I will sleep ear­ly tonight and be good to go tomorrow. 

What did I learn today?

  • I learned that it is okay to take a day off espe­cial­ly when it is per my own rules
  • The mar­kets aren’t going any­where. I have this idea of lost time = lost oppor­tu­ni­ties. The mar­kets will be here and I am bet­ter at trad­ing them when I am well-rest­ed. There’s no need to put too much pres­sure on myself. 
  • This was also good to test myself to not trade today

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

  • Fol­low my rules. They are defined at a moment when things were clear and you found enough rea­son to incor­po­rate them into your plan. Thus… abide by them. Don’t go chang­ing up rules on the fly because it suits you in that moment. Which luck­i­ly I did fol­low my rules today. The mar­kets will be here tomor­row and the next and the next. 

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

  • Stray from the process. Remem­ber: Process. Patience. Persistence. 

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

  • I did very well today
