Week­ly Goal Achieve­ment: Align with Mar­ket Narrative

  • I did well here. I was eye­ing an ini­tial val­ue rejec­tion play but when price didn’t con­firm I let it go and switched sen­ti­ment to con­sid­er going long. Due to price being inside val­ue I opt­ed against it and decid­ed to take notes instead. This com­bined with point­ers from Dee I have a bet­ter con­tex­tu­al under­stand­ing of a poten­tial play.

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

  • I felt well. Exer­cise is fuck­ing key to a ratio­nal mind. Thanks Dee. 

How well did I fol­low my process?

  • I did well here. Stayed being the sci­en­tist and took notes. 

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

  • Did well here

What did I learn today?

  • Post-Abnor­mal Day Play
    • Took notes for my playbook

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

  • Stay sci­en­tif­ic on the approach

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

  • Reread before posting 

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

  • I did well
