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: 

  • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym + manda­to­ry cardio
  • Trad­ing rules
    • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
    • Only price-action based exit rules (or if hit time stop comes earlier)
      • Oth­er­wise a Bart Simp­son exercise
      • Doing one right now

Good 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): 1

GBPNZD
  • Which hypo played out and how did I hypoth­e­size it play­ing out? How did it actu­al­ly play out? What did the pro­file and price action show?
  • Hypo 1 — Trend Con­tin­u­a­tion / Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sen­ti­ment. H4 sup­ply get­ting popped premarket. 
    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bull­ish PA with IB exten­sion up and sus­tained auc­tion exhaust­ing ADR / IB exten­sion down to failed auction
    • Con: Trend is Down. D1 Supply
    • 80% cor­rect

How accu­rate was my assess­ment of mar­ket con­text? What were the cir­cum­stances of the devel­op­ing nar­ra­tive? How did they devel­op accord­ing to DTTZ?

Instead of a momen­tum exten­sion up price pulled back to VAH with­out extend­ing IB to the down­side. Then F closed as a Bull Engulf at M30 VWAP in UT, VAH and extend­ed above IB dur­ing G. 

What was the play of the day?

It was a Return to Val­ue play that didn’t move much. 

Was I right on the out­come? Which Hypo played out and why was it not Hypo 1 (if any)?

Yes I was

Was there an oppor­tu­ni­ty and did I take it?

There was but I had decid­ed not to trade due to not feel­ing sharp today

What could I have done better?

I did well to stay out

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

No trade taken


GOLD
  • Which hypo played out and how did I hypoth­e­size it play­ing out? How did it actu­al­ly play out? What did the pro­file and price action show?
  • None of my hypos came out as there was a trend con­tin­u­a­tion instead

What could I have done better?

Did well to stay out as there was no viable opportunity

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

No trade taken


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

I felt very tired so did well to stay out.

What did I learn today?

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

Focus on my process

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

Wor­ry about trading

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

Yes I did
